NGD: RG655-FSO

It came today after a delay from the last snowstorm. I got three words...

Giggity Fing Goo

Orange, Edge, AANJ, Dimarzios and an incredible setup. Porn!!!!

And I will not buy another guitar from anyone but Rich. When he says instrument, he means it. I have never had such a good tool in my hand before. Look at that fretwork!!









More pics are here. Have not sorted through the good and bad yet.

Awesome! Nice to see someone with a 2014 Ibby. How does it play and sound compared to your Genesis? Congrats and enjoy!

Re: NGD: RG655-FSO



I ended up getting the Gold package from Rich and it is incredible. I have not held a guitar before that was this well setup.

Not greedy, Ibanez is putting out some bad*ss guitars here lately. The 655 is how it should be. Prestige, AANJ, stronger neck, good pickups, Edge trem and a great color.

I have not spent the time with the 655 as I have with the Genesis but I am thinking they are on par with each other. Both are great playing guitars and look to be built well. Sorry guys, I have taken quite a liking to the GC and honestly, the 655 is exactly the guitar I wanted, everything about it. H*ll, the middle pickup is even usable!!!

I really am trying to find things I want to keep. I need to get a new wall pic, it has filled out nicely with guitars that work for me.
