NGD, Rg920

Was thinking of getting, either a RG1xxv, or the RG920MQM.

Tried the RG1xxv, almost felt the same as the RG2xxv which i tried a few days ago, and was not that impressed.

Tried the RG920 premium, it felt great with low action, super fast neck, not super slim, but perfect.

The rg920mqm pick ups had a real nice bite to it, and crystal clear.

Needless to say, i went with the rg920mqm, and am really happy! And it was also cheaper than the rg1xxv.

Re: NGD, Rg920

oh and by the way, it seems there is no serial number.

Well, actually there is a number on the back of the headstock, but it looks kinda weird.

It says I14xxC, can it really be a serial number?

I agree. The necks on the 920/21 are amazing!

Check out the 7 string s series. sir27? It has an amazing neck too.

Re: NGD, Rg920

Awesome, i literally just got my new Ibanez RG920MQMRDT today and it is amazing. I've heard some people say the quality on the premiums isnt as great as its made out to be but you would swear this was a prestige if it was printed on the headstock. The maple neck/fretboard are so perfect and smooth, i couldnt be happier with it. Did you go blue or red?

Re: NGD, Rg920

Good to hear. The red looks awesome. The quilt looks much better than the blue i think.

Cant overstate just how good the neck/fretboard are. What are your opinion on the pups? Prior to purchasing i had heard some people state that they sounded thin and mediocre, but im actually pretty pleased with the tone. Itll be awhile before i bother to swap out the stock pups.

Yes, I also heard that, but I think they sound awesome!

I am not gonna change pups anytime soon.

While i prefer the maple neck, i'd have no issues with getting an RG920 with a rosewood fretboard if thats all i had available.

Thinking i may pick up another 920 with rosewood fretboard in black ice finish, thats how much i like it.
