Prestige (RG1527) neck question
As many of you might remember, I had a 2008 RG1527RB. And as I'm sure you could tell, I loved that guitar to death. I could never get any guitar to play or sound as good as that beast. The action was the lowest I've ever played on and it still resonated as if the action were 5mm off the fretboard. But in reality I think it was about 1mm. No buzz. Even on the lowest string.
Anyway, all I want to know is how consistent the neck feels and shapes are on the Ibanez Prestige models. Because I've played a couple 2006 RG1527's and it just wasn't the same.
So if I find myself another 2008, how close will it be to my original and most beloved? Because no guitar on this planet has ever felt that good.
I also know that Prestige necks are finished, to some extent, by hand. Which leaves me to believe that I will never have a neck feel that good again.
Thanks guys. Sorry for the depressing thread. I just miss that thing and would give anything to have it back.
