NGD // Ibanez J-Custom Content
 
Hello all,

It's taken me a long time to do a NGD for this guitar but finally ive gotten around to doing it. This is an Ibanez J-Custom RG8570 in Deep Red. Made in 2003, it has the old j-custom neck which is 19.5mm at the 1st fret and 21.5mm at the 12th fret, which I feel are marginally thicker than the wizard prestige necks (17-19mm is way too thin for me).

SPECIFICATIONS:
Body : Flamed Maple(Top), Mahogany(Back)
Neck : 5 Piece(Maple+Bubinga)/Wizard neck
Fingerboard : Rosewood(Flame Maple binding)
Fret : Custom Jumbo
Bridge : Edge Pro

Pictures arent great, sorry.

A picture of both my j-customs together. My turquoise j-custom still has the original Tone Zone and Air Norton in it. I plan on putting a dimarzio d-activator into the bridge.

It originally came with Dimarzio Tone Zone and Air Norton, but I have recently switched them with a Bareknuckle Painkiller bridge and Cold Sweat neck.

Thanks for looking all :)

That is Awesome! such a fan of the offset markers.

What are the Bare Knuckles Like? i have been tempted on the Bay to grab some but never took the plunge.

Nice guitars but those pups look painfully ugly....

@ robbiano

it's a bit thicker, and not as brittle as the tone zone IMO.

@ syl

i love the bareknuckles, Tim really does his "metal" pickups well. i play a lot of tech/prog metal and the bareknuckles are tight as hell, which is what you need, especially when you compare them to dimarzios (IMO)

@ ibzfrk

i like the look of brushed nickel, i just think i need to get a cover the single coil :)

Sorry no, its a vintage looking pup with a modern type guitar, just doesn't work for me.

But whatever floats your boat ;)

Nice! Maybe the photos are that bad, but I'd expect a bit more visible flame on that

Beautiful set you have there man, but "I'm with Freak" (I think that's gonna be my new sig)

Now you need to go out and find a couple of 3120's, a TW and a DR for a "no hold's barred" death match!!!!!

I'm not a fan of red guitars, but that is simply stunning! Makes me rethink my dislike of red--nice score!
