NGD! JCustom "Aurora"

So... I'm searching the web for cool stuff one day and I stumbled across this link: http://www.ibanez.co.jp/japan/jcusto...G1404-AUR.html

One thing leads to another, I sell off 5 guitars, and it's on an airplane from Japan. I can't stop staring at it. It feels incredible - amazing build quality. Truly stunning.

Suhweet!!! Congrats. Very neat to own a one off guitar like that. What did you sell to finance it?

Ikebe ships overseas? I never knew that. I always thought they didn't do overseas sales

Either way, HAPPY NGD! that's the one JC from that run that wish I could have. Glad a fellow jemsiter got it!

I was into the "Sky" as well - I'm into crazy finishes, which is why I'm here I suppose.

You guys will know this - there's no "F" in the sn - and there are a few things about it that are different from the current JC offerings - neckplate, string retainer, wide walnut pieces in neck, larger logo... did this come from Sugi or another builder?

Amazing axe!!!

(Just one thing... satin gold HW would suit it much better, IMHO.)

I think this is a Sugi. It was at Gakki fair in November, I think Jason at Ishibashi said it was Sugi. Can't remember though.

Hmm. Can't say I *love* the look of that, but it's certainly unique, and kind of cool. Probably is a monster player too!

I love the greens, but that price tag would have scared me off it, no question. Play her in health!
