NGD RG350MP WH / NAD

YAH.. New guitar day. I had to wait a couple weeks for Ibanez to ship this to sweetwater but it showed up yesterday. I use to have a JS1000 but I've been playing Strats for a couple years and started GASing for an Ibanez RG with the new trem system. I have to say the pups are good but not great. I'll be getting some Dimarzios sometime but the rest is all good. For the money you couldn't ask for more. When I ordered it I asked them to put 10s on and they put ernie Ball 10s on and adjust it for them free of charge. The guitar came all setup and just needed fine tuning.
Figured I better getting a small amp that is easy to carry around since my Peavey Classic 50 is overkill most of the time. I found a Peavey Envoy 110 on craigslist in new condition for $150.00.
I don't get gear often so I'm pretty excited and thought i'd share. I'm sure someone here has been looking at the new RGs.

nice I have the RG350DX in white.. some day wouldnt mind adding the maple board to go with it. Something classy about a white guitar.

RG350 guitars are a great value for the money.
Have fun!

Re: NGD RG350MP WH / NAD

I agree. I always wanted a white RG with a maple neck. I almost got one like yours until I saw they had the new one with maple. I was surprised and had to get one. I like yours. I was thinking about doing the same color combo when I can afford new Dimarzios. What pups are in yours? I think I can adjust my settings to compensate for the stock pups to get them sounding good enough but they don't sound anywhere near as good as my Fred and PAF that my JS1000 had. (Wish I still had that one too, It was a 1998 white JS1000)

Where did you find that black pick guard? I wonder if they are the same hole pattern on mine? You would think they would be but you know how that goes.

Maybe I'll order a black one when I can afford the new Dimarzio pups.
I prefer the knobs like yours too. The plastic like Strats have. Would it not be awesome if you could just build your Ibanez online the way you want.
Pick your PG hardware color etc...

I was talking with my brother about some ideas I had to mod the guitar a bit like the tree of life inlay sticker and pup colors and he put together this Photoshop file where I could change stuff by adding or removing layers. Check it out if you have photoshop.
I need 10 posts to be able to put links in I guess so SORRY for the next 2 posts here.

Where can you get a RG 350 pick guard online and verify it is the right hole pattern?

Number three with white pickups. And if you don't want to buy new pickups, you can just paint those. Message ibanezcollector and RGTFanatic about it. It's very safe. They've both done it many times.

Re: NGD RG350MP WH / NAD

Does anyone know how well those vinyl tree of life inlays work? I don't want to put it on if it's going to start falling apart and look like garbage in a year. I think I'm going to just wait until I'm putting new pups in do do anything. That would be a good time to change the guard out.
