Pink J-Custom HRG01FM NK pictures

I just bought this off of evilbay. It's a Ibanez J-Custom HRG01FM NK (Elegant Pink). I had to sell my 2003 UV777BK & my 2005 Jem BRMR to pay for her, but it was well worth it. There is nothing wrong with this guitar. I need to oil the fretboard, it's a little dry. I also need to do the locking stud mod since the Edge Pro has no lockers. I'll do that soon but wanted to post pictures for you all.

I'm a little hazy on the specs on this guitar since there is so little info available on the net (that I've found anyway). It appears to be a Ibanez J-Custom HRG01FM NK (Elegant Pink, and yes NK, it's that way on the Certificate). Made in 2004 for the Ikebe shop ONLY, a very small number made. I was told 15 total, but I have no idea as to how accurate that is.

Mahogany body
AAA flame maple top and matching headstock
Natural binding
Natural flame maple binding around the fretboard
5 Piece maple/bubinga neck
Ebony Fretboard
Abalone side markers
Stainless Steel frets
MOP vine/tree of life
Edge Pro trem
Coil Splitting push/pull volume & tone knobs (recessed)
Neck- DiMarzio Air Norton
Center-DiMarzio Blue Velvet
Bridge-DiMarzio Tone Zone
AAJCNJ
Serial#4A015

This is such an awesome axe. It looks awesome and play awesome and sounds super f'n kickazz. It's a little weighty, but that's expected from Mahogany.

That would have to be my idea of the ultimate Ibanez!

Congratulations on a gorgeous guitar!

So what are they worth Rich - about a million bucks? I'd sooner buy one of those than a JEM 20th!

I got it for $2000. I think it was a steal.

It came with Gotoh strap buttons/straplocks in little ziplocks with Japanese text iinstructions. Do you know if that was something they put in as an extra in addition to the plain strap buttons currently installed ?

That's awesome man. Ebony just owns any other board wood and works great with clean sounds when you use the single coil. Congrats!

The green is nice as well. I don't understand why we can't get them in the US. Why would they not take advantage of the US market? It would look good with all white pups too.

Rick my understanding is they (Ibanez) sell all the can make and the US arm does not want the hassle.

Sweet guitar!

Re: Pink J-Custom HRG01FM NK pictures

Thanks guys, I'm real happy with my new axe. The pups in this thing are great. I'm even impressed with the single coil. I've never had a single coil that sounded good, but this blue velvet one actually sounds awesome.
