VM-1 Vinnie Moore model - my new fave!
I bought this on Evilbay as a "74 Ibanez with Sprezels" and have totally fallen in love! I don't know if it is the DiMarzio Double Whammy pickups or the Mahogany body/neck combo(or all of the above of course) but this thing has a tremendous"grunt" for lack of a better word. I have become so accustomed to the sparkle of Alder+Maple and such that the tone was quite a nice shock. The Edge on this thing is pretty cool in that it allows through the back stringing like a traditional Strat bridge as well as individual height adjustment for each string(no fine tuners of course). The Ebony 'board and flatter radius combined with Jumbo frets make for a fast and furious ride. All in all, I am really digging the whole package and am considering a swirl job. Anyone know production#'s for this model? I am gonna hook up with an image hosting service so I can post some pics of the bridge as requested, as well as some of the rest of the guitar. Yet another oddball in my Ibanez "Forest of Oddballs". Z
