NGD - With a nice suprise!

I'd been watching craigslist for the past month for a new Ibby and kept seeing the same RG350MDX reposted every couple of days. Bad pictures and poorly marketed with little discription. In a nutshell the guy gave the name of the guitar and that he had the pickups changed. His price went from $400 down to $200 over the past month and I decided to shoot him an email explaining that I by no means was intentionally low balling him but I was on a strict budget and would gladly give him $150 for it pending condition. He agreed so I met with him. I was frigging floored when I saw it. This guitar looks like it was just taken out of the box! Brand new condition! But that's not all.... Although the gentleman couldn't remember the exact model, The bridge and neck pickups are both Dimarzio's! He got them under the recommendation of his guitar tech and said "one is a liquid something and the other was a detonator or a D something". Regardless I was itching for him to take the $150 so I could get it home. The edge 3 is staying in tune just fine thus far and I'm extremely pleased with it. As soon as a get a set of strings I'll yank up the pickguard to see exactly what my mystery Dimarzio's are.

Probably a D-Activator in the bridge and a Liquifire in the neck.

Re: NGD - With a nice suprise!

That's exactly what I was thinking. I'm going to pick up some strings today some time so I'll find out soon enough. I have to see what's going on with the wiring anyway. The tone knob isn't doing anything. Might need to move some wires around.

Re: NGD - With a nice suprise!

Thanks all! I'd been planning to get a Jackson Adrian Smith sdx signature but now I'm debating it since this one is so similar by wood spec and has better pickups.

The Adrian Smith's look awesome, but the Ibanez does have a logo that fits on the headstock.

Re: NGD - With a nice suprise!

Nice, I own that same model. I always wanted a black rg with a maple fingerboard(similar to a old rg550 from the 90s look) so when this came out i had to have it also. I put a green mirror pickguard and dimebucker in and never looked back!!
