NGD: Rare Ibanez Content!

Hey guys, so I snagged a pretty rare Ibanez. It's a 442R model, made for only 1 year. It has a thick neck like a Strat which makes me very happy. I've grown to really dislike thin necks. It actually plays very much like a Strat; it's a killer guitar. The finish is a cherry burst, but it looks a lot less cheesy in person.

Here is my review:

Tell me what you think!

Very nice! I used to have one of these someone had stripped the finish on. Can't remember when I sold it. Congratz man I love the cherry burst finish!

Beautiful guitar Cam. Very few Ibbys can carry a cherry burst off......this one does it very well!!

I just saw a 442 for sale somewhere, but I can't remember where. Where did you find this one?

Thumbs up Re: NGD: Rare Ibanez Content!

Cool review, nice guitar. I'm not sure, but I believe I had something similar in the 90's, but in black. The body and the neck were the same. I did it away because it had no FR trem.

That's a very simple and perfect guitar for those who can't stand locking nuts and fine tuners on trem.

I like thicker necks too - my Iceman has a perfect blend of thin playability while still retaining some girth to hold on to!

Re: NGD: Rare Ibanez Content!

Thanks guys!

Yep, this one does have the factory Gotoh Magnum locking tuners (I believe that's the model)

I actually snagged this from a member of this board. I just PM'ed a bunch of people via a thread search on this model, and one of them obliged and sold me his!
