NGD Anniversary Prestige content

Just got this RG1421fBHB in a trade.
So, I'll just let the pics do the talking for now.





This thing is on par with any other Ibanez, Caparison or EBMM I've ever played.
Just absolutely flawless. It's loaded with a Dimarzio Tone Zone/Air Norton combo, which I like, but want to swap out. I'll post a better review once I get some more time with it, been pretty busy lately.
Enjoy!

I believe they were made to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the prestige line, and they made 132 of each of two colors, black haze burst, and the blue one, whose name currently escapes me. This is #101 of the Black Haze Burst.
These things are the tits.

Is the color in these pictures pretty close to how it actually looks?

Indeed it is. I'm going to take some outdoor pics over the weekend, but these, especially the first two, are pretty spot on, color wise.

I dig the white pups/knobs; standard black everything is so boring. I really dig these things!

I owned the blue one and I have to say I disagree with this statement. I mean, I suppose part of my issue was the terrible stock pups, but it just didn't feel all that great. I wanted to like it, but couldn't gel with it. Certainly no where NEAR the RGA121 in terms of playability or tone, and I wouldn't even bother saying it's in the same league as Cappy's and EBMM's.

And for anyone looking, I bought mine on GC's used page for $420 shipped and they had a few other fixed models for less than $500, so worth a look. In fact, I'm pretty sure I saw this exact guitar on there

Don't like what I post? Tell me why and defend your position like a man.

Well, the thing I like about mine is the neck feel.

@pups: Hmmmmmmmm. Well, I wasn't super happy with the stock ones and now after doing a restash, I like these even less

My 1420 (the twin) sounds much better, I think I'll leave those alone.

Must've had a dud, because this guitar is amazing.
I don't really see why you find it necessary to counter my experience with your own, though.

My bad, wasn't directed at you. Let's just drop it, I don't want to argue the merits of different Ibanez models in here.
