NGD - OMG ur never gona believe what I just got :P

Ok, let me set the scene. Its 1am and im watching downloaded TV with my wife.. during shows I for some reason checked Ebay for ibanez, and found this up for Auction.. Lets just say the Auction started at a very low price. So I emailed the seller and offered him double the low price, to remove the auction and sell direct to me.

Its in player condition, the neck has been altered with dot inlays. But in real good condition...

I got this at the price of a player rg550.... muhahahahah muhahahahah muhahaha... ahahahh I got 2 RgPaint2 J Customs....

That should be your gigging paint, keep the other 2 in great shape.Sometimes guitars,like pregnant cats, find a home where they will be well cared for.I just bought a dbk jem becauase it had been sitting at a shop for 3 yrs.I felt sorry for it and thought it should relive its former glory! good luck with the restoration.

Re: NGD - OMG ur never gona believe what I just got :P

The neck has many dents and dints in it... Would I need to use wood filler and then sand the neck smooth ?

Maybe I will just send it to Ernie at ET guitars to restore...

Id like to do it myself,, maybe I will do some research and restore it myself...

so happy about the find....

Wow! Great score!
But man! Was the seller in Afghanistan? It looks like it went a few rounds with Tyson.

Re: NGD - OMG ur never gona believe what I just got :P

Excellent score! As someone else mentioned, it should be your live guitar. For the neck, my suggestion would be to sand out all the dents to raw wood. You could probably do this very easily with a wire wheel on a Dremel tool at low speed. Then I'd fill them with something like the "thick" super glue they sell at Stew Mac, or whatever your equivalent is down there. Then you can sand that back level and blend it into the rest of the clear finish on the neck.

I repaired a fretboard edge with that and the repair is totally invisible.

Get a wet rag, put it over the dent, and touch it with a soldering iron. The steam will push the wood out to (almost) its original position. It only works with bare wood, so if there's a finish you'll have to sand it off inside the dent.

Interesting paint job. I didn't know these were painted in layers - kind of like the Urushis.

Nice score.
