Is that a new release? First time I saw that finsih and quilt top.

I got a good deal on a RG652AHM nebula green burst. Can't wait to get it.

Thanks guys, glad you like it! One small technical note for anyone considering pickup swaps to hotter Dimarzio pickups in the RG652s, the Evos are quite a bit thicker than the TZ/AN combo, so I had to fit the foam cushioning blocks on their sides or else the pickups would have be too close to the strings.

I've had the guitar about 6 or 8 months, imported from Germany, haven't seen many other RG652s in this colour for sale.

I'm guessing you're UK based like me. Did you buy it from Thomann?

very nice mahogany/maple RG652. Just a question, are the pots of prestige ibanez metric or english? I want to change the knobs mof my RG652AHM to blue.

I have used Thomann on many occasions, however their GBP price is only a very poor estimate to try and lure you in, the last guitar I bought from them had a £100 price difference between their advertised price and what I was actually billed, plus their delivery can be very slow. The RG652 above was from musik-produktiv, these people quote in GBP and charge inGBP, and offer free returns if the guitar is damaged. I hate having to use the internet to buy guitars.

Thanks. I'll keep them in mind. 🙂

...having got bored of the TZ/AN combo I dropped in a couple of Green Evo's, a little more green cant be a bad thing. Or can it?!
Gotta love the green DiMarzio's. I put a pair of them in my Floral Print JEM and it never ceases to get compliments. Much more to my liking than the stock pink.
