I had the same poster above my bed! Sadly, it got thrown out at some point. I actually created a similar image to it as a computer background using Photoshop and pictures of my guitars.

Does yours sound like this?? and yes, that's Damien with my 760HP

I guess I knew that, but I think the reason that Ibanez wires them that way is that the output isn't that high, so splitting the coil could make the output really low. It almost sounds like that's what's going on with your guitar. If you roll way off the power on a pickup, it will get really trebly, which is why Jems and some higher end stuff have the treble bleed on the volume pot. I've never had an issue like that with a C2.

That's what I figured I was hoping you'd reply to this thread. I actually have two of these now, this being the nicer one. The other one is a player and I'll be selling it shortly, so hit me up if you're interested. I'll be selling that one for significantly less than I bought this one for.

Re: NGD: USA Custom - UCGR "Strung Out"

So by special request from the Penguin, here's both "Strung Outs" right next to eachother.



I never noticed before that one is greener than the other. The one I just got is on the bottom. They're both from the same model year, but the top one is an earlier guitar. It's interesting to see some of the subtle differences between the two, especially the slightly different paint.
