Post NGD - RG 550 Inside
OK, I bought this thing about 2 weeks ago, but I've only just managed to get around to taking photo's of it and the best I could do is take them with my phone.....

I bought this baby of the bay for 1300 AUD, which in my opinion was an absolute steal. The person I bought it off was fanastic - bought it Sunday, it arrived Tuesday sealed in bubble wrap.

This is my first MIJ Ibanez and I have to say, it is just a supurb guitar. The neck it simply outstanding - it's effortless to play on and gets me that snap back when shredding on the maple neck. I was also suprised at the level of sustain this guitar had for a floating bridge guitar - she sings for ages......

Honestly, if you weren't sure about picking one of these up, I would say go for it, they are simply excellent value. I plan on keeping mine completely stock - I know some people complain about the pickups, but honestly thery have more than enough output for me.

I lurb mine, although my pgm301 steals away most of its play time now, I still love to pick it up all the time

Thanks guys.....


Pewtershmit, the PGM 301 rocks big time, if only they were cheaper here in Aus (about 3K AUD here)....... I can understand why it would get the majority of your playing time.....

Sir Robin, if you can get your hands on one, they are f$cken awesome........ I must admit I got sucked in when I watched the clip with PG, especially with technical diff playing in the background - but seriously, if you can pick one up, they rock. I was just playing her then, the sustain brings a giant smile to my face.

I just love the colors...but as a musician...I really don't need one. I already have a 301, and I like having different guitars for different tones. I really want to get a Les Paul or even a Mockingbird next....I'm sure it will take several years, though
