I'm pleased to say that my RG1421F arrived today and couldn't be happier. I ordered it from Rich and had new pickups installed (Air Norton / Tone Zone) in addition to his usual magic.
The neck is amazing! It has a better "feel" than the older Ibanez's I've owned (although my favorite neck is still my RG-PR1) and thanks to Rich the fit and finish is fantastic. The Tight-End bridge is really nice, definitely no complaints there. Overall it's a blast to play which is great since I bought it to be my everyday/practice guitar so I don't have to restring tremolo guitars as often.
Here are some pics! (the last pic is a RG570CTTB I picked up last week as well)
RG1421F in New UV1000C Case (although I must admit, the gig bag it came with is quite nice!)

New family portrait (Left to Right: RG570CTTB, RG-PR1, RG1421F)
Pretty round fretwork (pic doesn't do the work justice)
1995 RG570CTTB that I picked up last week locally (belated NGD pic)
I'd like to thank Rich again for taking this guitar to the next level for me. Also, curse you for ruining local guitar shops for me! I can't pickup any stock guitar anymore without being sorely disappointed at the finish and setup :P
