NGD, Sunglasses Required!

Obviously, I'm reliving my 80s with this axe. I also wanted to combine an S, a Jem and my band colors. Please ask me any questions on what's, what.

Looks good. Certainly an '80s looking guitar. Obvious first question, what are the pickups?

Re: NGD, Sunglasses Required!

Thanks folks. In both looks and tone I was trying to combine two of my faves: A Gambale Saber and an original Jem. The pups are DiMarzios with an EVO 2 in the bridge, an HS-2 in the middle and an Air Norton in the neck.

I went with the Air Norton for that more "fusion-y" sound.

That's very, very nice, although I'm not very fond of the pink/green combo. Congrats

Is this a 25th anniversary that you modded?

Re: NGD, Sunglasses Required!

How are they? I was debating about getting one but can't get over the ibanez made pickups, cheaper trem and being made in Indonesia. I have only tried them out a couple of times.

There are several threads on the build quality of these models. But frankly, my neck and frets needed work right out of the case and I obviously replaced the stock pups.

Now she plays and sounds great.

Re: NGD, Sunglasses Required!

I played that exact model in a Guitar Center and the frets and neck were not good. The edge of the neck was very square and not comfortable. I thought it was a shame, because it's such a cool looking guitar and the price is right.
