Played my first J Custom today.....
So I went to my best friend of 25 years today to hang out and talk about a new song were working on. I get to his practice area and he has it sitting there in the middle of the room, safely on a stand, taunting me mercilessly!!! A brand new JCRG2011Z BGA.
It turns out that Mike (my buddy) has been talking with Rich for about the last month without my knowing it........ THAT A**HOLE!!! LMAO!!!!!!
He's going to take some pictures of it for me to post in this thread in the next few days, but I wanted to get on and tell you all what an AMAZING guitar this really is........ It's an RG, but by name only. It has nothing in common with any other RG that I've ever played. From the unbelievably silky neck, to the amazing fretwork, an edge zero that feels as good as any other trem I've ever used......Even the AANJ is VERY different from that standard RG's. It's so much closer to perfect than even my RGT prestige that it's hard to believe they were made in the same factory!!
Rich, Mike said he went all out when he ordered this. He said he got the ultimate service package with it........ whatever you did was like magic man........ that guitar is perfection in my eyes....Incredible work my friend!!! Anybody that doesn't believe that you do this for the love of the instrument and your customers is full of ......... well, you know. You have humbled me......Again, very nice work.
I want you guys to know that My friend Mike is NOT one of those "Richy Rich", can't play a lick, "collectors"....... He works long hours at an extremely tough job and provides for his family first.......... He's been wanting a JC for over 10 years now.
I'm proud of him for finally getting it.
Way to go buddy...If anyone deserves it, IT"S YOU!!!!!
Pics to come soon!!!!!
