OK I've finally put the thing down after playing it for Friday, Sat and most of Sunday.
My story is....
I've always liked these when I saw then in the 98 cat. Again I think it's a PGM-alike. It has a cheesy finish which I dig and a reversed headstock. Be cool if you could get them in gold and silver tho
Several months ago I was considering a PGM90th after trying one (used) I wasn't that impressed with the price for what you get.
Patrick Deno had given me the link to his site as they had a new one (Which I've now lost) but I saw one of these RGR's *At this point I didn't have a credit card so no go.
But The Card is now active. and a PGM is on it's way BUT in the mean time......
I got a flyer through the door from a guitar store which list's it's deals and the rest is history......
OK the actual guitar playes quite well. The strings are a bit light but I'm adjusting. The action suits me. It's not super low like Simon's custom but not bad.
The pups arn't bad V7, S1 and V8 but a set of yellow dimarzios would look swell in there. Dunno what though !
Now I'm convinced I've got a strange necked 550. My 520 and 570 have the same neck but the 550 is bigger. Not Jem like though. Weird !
Anyway I've actually been praticing seriously for the first time in months. The way you do when you get a new toy.
Anyway thanks Ibanez, for another cool guitar that you don't make anymore !
