I was a bit skeptical about buying an iron label - especially over the internet - after reading all of the bad reviews, but I found one that no one bid on yet on the bay. The listing was awful so it didn't get any views or bids, so I took it away for $350
(after him sending me pictures of the side view of the frets, which were still practically new). I don't have any pictures yet, but here it is:
Contrary to all of the hate on the internet, the thing plays like a dream. It's a 2013 model (I thought they came out in 2014
). I must have been one of the lucky ones it sounds like. The fretwork is almost prestige level. I can tell its never gotten a fret level because they're still really tall. No sharp fret ends, and I can get really low action.
The fretboard was exceedingly nasty, so I had to clean it, but after a nice setup the thing played and felt like a dream. Love the ebony.
Nitro wizard neck is a bit thicker than original and prestige wizards, but it still felt like one of the best necks on played. Worlds better than the wizard II/III and the prestige wizard from 2005 - 2012 (New super wizard is the best).
The abalone purfling is kind of nice, and the finish was nice and thin. The bubinga top really shows.
