NGD S5470QRBB!!!!!

Hey Folks! I've just received my first Ibanez Prestige! I'd previously purchased a 770PB, but decided to return it and take the plunge... and I must say, I'm glad I did.

This guitar plays like a dream, and I haven't even set it up yet! The neck and frets are done to perfection and play like butter.

I know some folks have had sustain issues with the guitar, but I haven't noticed and real issues yet (I've checked all of the frets several times). I don't expect the same sustain out of this as my hard tail through body strung guitars, but it does surpass my expectations.

Anywho, these photos are from Sweetwater and are of the actual guitar I have in my possession. I'd take my own photos, but these are much better than anything I could do.

Beauty. Love that finish, have it on an RGT myself!

I only wish that they would make at least the Prestige S with direct-mount pickups.

very,very nice. And Sweetwater is a great place to buy from IMO. Always had good experiences with them. The fact that they take individual pics of the guitars so you can see exactly what you are getting is really nice.

Re: NGD S5470QRBB!!!!!

So after having the guitar for a few days, I can say that is the best purchase I've ever made. I can't get enough of it.

I've read a lot about how folks don't care for the DiMarzrio designed stock pickups. I find them to be super versatile and incredibly beefy! I don't just play metal, so I really like the different tones I can get out of this monster. I mention this just in case someone happens across this while doing some research, as I had so many threads.

Beautiful, congrats! My bandmate just bought a new Premium S970 and as nice as that is I can only imagine how much nicer your Prestige must be.
