Nice top, looks remarkably water-esque.

My favourite is my own guitar, as I would not have bought it otherwise. It is the RG 2550Z Galaxy white.

Re: what is YOUR favorite prestige/j-custom/usa ibanez?

RG8427bx Looks so amazing with its fancy top and inlay. I'm mega keen for an RG7 too so if i had the cash id be ordering one of these babies.
RG8620s I've fancied this since i first saw it, i really like the look of the spalted top and inlay. Though im told the spalted top does the guitar's sound no favours with it basically being soft, partially rotted wood but hey, i'll take that chance lol.
RG1520bp My main player has to go in really. It may look relatively boring but not only is it a great sounding and great playing electric guitar it also doubles as a synth controller which is useful if like me, you want to add keyboard parts to your home recordings but dont want to learn to play keyboard!

Very nice! Just bought a brand new one myself last week exactly the same, RG2550Z in GW. The store had 3 RG2550Z's left, two in GB and one in GW, they where gonna move them to one of their smaller locales to put up more '09 models in the main store, I got a GREAT deal on it w/case ($700).

I've aready finsihed what little pimping I wanted to do - new PUP's (Tone Zone, HS-1, PAFpro) and old skool knobs, done! Beautiful guitar in every way, looks, sonics, playability, etc. Prestige line = best bang for buck guitars out there, period!

Day one pics...







And this week, after the minor upgrades...

8420ZD? It's very similar to that I'm not sure whether the model number changes between the SD and EMG equipped ones, I've seen both but never looked to see whther they were the same model.

3: s1520bp: simple and effective, like a dagger to the throat. killer aesthetics and neck from hell.

good lord!!! i can't believe i started this thread 10 years ago!!! since then i have acquired many more guitars, the rgt3120 being one. i still love that guitar dearly. funny how i was just trolling the site just to see if anyone had a 2027x for sale. it would be a welcome addition to the family as i have 4 prestiges(all of which are 2002 or older...i do not like the new trems at all): the rgt3120, an rg3120dr, rg2120x, and rg7ct. the rg2027x would be the perfect match for the ones i already own.

it's really funny how my tastes have evolved. i could care less about an rg-gear and own a pair of sabers: a bubinga top and a sapele top. the s1520bp is not as enticing as it once was back then.

RGA 121 series. the workhorse. almost no lacquer on the body, just "breathing' wood . country to metal, cover band to original instrumental project. really stable live. aftermatrket pickups, though.
