    Here are some pics of the guitar so far. I still have to have it fretted then I can put some whip cream and a cherry on it and we can eat it. :) The Eye Of Ra is made of gold mirror and the scarabs are made of flamed maple to match the "binding" look of the flamed maple on the body of...

    OK, I bought a couple of 540R during the last couple of years. One of them was transformed into a Donnie, the other one was kept a radius, but an alien radius... so even though its not really a JS, it's definately the guitar that the nemesis of the silver surfer would play ;) Here is a video of...

    Has anyone here found their 'perfect guitar', the #1, the 'cannot be beat' axe that is perfect for them in every way? Maybe it's nit-picking but I'm still searching for that elusive super-axe. I've got a few guitars right now that are close, but not quite there 100%. I've been playing Ibanez...

    I went to Megadeth yesterday in Paradiso Amsterdam. Great show! First time I saw new Megadeth guitarplayer Chris Broderick. I was surprised to see he's an Ibanez player. And what a great guitar he plays! It's a 7 string purple quilted custom with a reverse headstock. Nice! Loved his playing...

So here's what's for sale: Ibanez J-Custom MRG1 QMG (sorry Gurj) - One of six in the world!! Deep black quilted maple top, mahogany...

    I'd like to get some opinions on this. I've owned at least 20-25 Ibanez guitars over the years. Mostly RG models but I also had a JEM and a JPM model for a while. Now I realize that Team J Craft is a specialized group of Ibanez's most experienced builders and the VAST majority of their guitars...

    Hey... I have searched for this topic and I haven't found it! I suppose it would be a great idea if we showed the world our beloved J-Customs! (Why not leave this topic as "sticky"?) To start off, here's mine: (crappy pic, I shall shoot some new photos tonight) It's a J-Custom RG Paint 4...

    Anyone noticing it? I know it is not big deal, just put some lemon oil on it, but I've been seeing alot of Jcustoms lately with really pale fingerbards, my 8470 came with a really bad one, even after the second application of oil, it still doesn't look as good as it should. A few more times...

    Hello! Very recently I acquired 3 J-customs which are amazing machines, but after much thought we (my gf and I) have decided that it would be better to grab a high end JEM rather than 3 guitars that sit unplayed. All 3 of these guitars are in the exact same condition as I got them in (only had...

    Up for your consideration is a couple of fantastic high end guitars. Before anyone asks, look closely at the reflection on the back of the peavey. You can see a few of the 25 guitars I own hanging on the wall. I need to move something and these are the first on the block. First off is a usa...

    Just like the Xiphos 7, there has been a lot of interest over at sevenstring.org about a 7 string RG (mostly people say they want one that is not made from basswood). I'd buy one. It would be the answer to many people at ss.org's prayers, ha ha. Just a suggestion.

    Hi everyone, I'm selling my j-custom, as I'm trying to finance a car purchase. It's j-custom RG9570 (also known as JCRG-2 I believe) in trans blue: Neckthru construction 5-piece Maple/Wenge neck, Hondura Mahogany wings 17mm J-Custom neck with an Ebony fretboard offset Abalone dots and flame...

    Anyone else spotted this? Can't find a pic on the web anywhere but check out the Ibanez TBX ad on page 63 of this months Guitar World (December issue). Kirk Kolaitis is playing an awesome reverse headstock 7 with a blue/green flame (& matching headstock of course!), "Dragonburst" type thing. Or...

    I don't really need to sell this, but I'm just not playing it enough. I don't like the Tone Zone/Air Norton combo which is coveted by many of you here, so you can gain from my disdain for it. Has the DiMarzio Tone Zone in the bridge and Air Norton in the neck and Blue Velvet in the middle. Has...
