Cool RGR 1220 (Belated NGD)

Hi everyone! I recently got this guitar 2 weeks ago, thought it may be cool i shared it as i guess we don't see many RGR1220s around! Enjoy the pics!





Ok, looks like everything's stock and all... i however plan to make a few changes with the look! (sorry to those who like black on black!) I was thinking of changing pickups to white Dimarzio TZ/AN combo 3 way sw with pushpull. I also thought maybe chrome hardware would look pretty cool! What do you all think?

Re: RGR 1220 (Belated NGD)

Congrats! you wont regret it.
It' s my all time fav rg. And funny thing is.. I've just scored another 1220 also!
So now i own two of this.
But i'm going to get it heavily modified. Still won't far from black on black concept,but maybe i'm going to make it humbucker only on bridge.

They so need more reverse headstock in the Prestige (and up) lines. Cool guitar!

Re: RGR 1220 (Belated NGD)

Hey everyone!!! Thanks so much for the positive comments! I really like this guitar a lot as it suits my needs. I like the guitar to be simple hence just 2 humbuckers and 1 vol knob (no tone knob).

Maybe some of you want to give some comments on the upgrades i may do? I believe it may look similar with one of Steve Vai's early Jems, with the different handle grip, black guitar with white pickups!

Thanks once again to all!

I feel you may end up getting one similar to a RG2610!

PLUS a direct mount H-H configuration..............add a tone knob to it and this would be the perfect guitar....

I wonder what neck it has on it?? Super Wiz maybe??



EDIT: I just checked Ibanez wiki........It does have an SW....AND a Steve special/Air Norton from the factory......Screw the tone knob, This guitar is AWESOME!!!!
