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...


have a black one myself. its the best out of all my guitars. hell it can play anything you throw at it. even jazz(nice neck pup) .. not a fan of middle pickup though. overall i wonder if i'll ever like another guitar more.

RG7-CST (RG7-PB1-VV) J-Custom

I'm a little unsure of the model--hence the parenthesis above. I've never owned one but this is, without a doubt, my absolute dream Ibanez. I mean that seriously--I literally dream about it. This guitar has every feature I've ever wanted in a single Ibanez:

- 7-strings
- Lo-Pro Edge 7 Trem
- Ebony FB
- No dots on fretboard (I love dotless fb's)
- Piezo Electronics
- Mahogany body w/maple top (my fav combo)
- 2 humbuckers
- And more!

If Ibanez ever again releases a model like this, I'm all over it. I'd sell-off the rest of my guitars just to own ONE of these.

EDIT: In addition to selling all my other guitars, I'd gladly streak naked through a crowded church to own one of these.

That is spalted wood, probably Maple. Spalted means that the wood is literally starting to rot...


My favorite is the RG-PR1... The natural flamed Maple is teh wants...

Wish I had the scratch for this. Although I do already have the wood I would need to build one

Yes, spalted maple. That's what the "S" in RG8620S means.

Here's a couple closeups of the body.





I actually sold that guitar over the summer. It was just in too nice of condition and worth too much money to play it. Ended up turning a tidy little profit on it.
