S Content. Played a S770PB!!! Impressed
I was in a small shop today at lunchtime that carries Ibanez and while talking to the proprietor, he handed me the S770PB NTF because I mentioned I played Radius'.
Plugged into a Vox VT50 and OMG, I love that guitar. It was so light in my hands but had a very ballsy sound. I have never owned an S and everyone I played in GC's and such were always setup like crap. Not this one. Setup nicely, sustained fairly well and was easy to play.
I ran it through some scalar stuff and then some chording and it handled both nicely. I was really impressed by the ZR trem, I never really played one before. It is different than the Edge series of trems in that it has a definite zero point that you can feel. Nice feel to the trem, easy to use. Didn't try to flutter it but I'm not Vai so I don't really care.
Although it sounded good through the modeling amp, I gotta think the INF pickups could be better. Those pickups in that stock model is about my only beef. Mahogany body, poplar top. The 24 frets were nice and playable with no obstructions besides my lack of really knowing how to play down there.
Overall, It really got me thinking about an S.
