    I've always wanted an Ibanez RG for a long while now and I finally got to own one for the first time, and the best part is that it's a Premium model. Audiophile (the distributor of Ibanez in my country) was having a sale on all guitars and one branch had this for 30% off, so I shared about wanting it to my friends and family. When I was opening presents with my family, my mom showed me the case and I got very excited.

    Incoming image dump:

    Almost hard case (and bonus dog photobomb).

    Closer look at the body, the Tight End R bridge is very nice.

    The guitar was restrung with Rotosound strings when I opened it (I believe they're 10-46 since the plain strings have the same tension as the D'Addario 10-52s on my Jackson Kelly).

    I also got this cool multi-tool device that came inside the case.

    Try putting "http://" before the link, I uploaded the images in a .moe domain and I had some browsers not being able to access links without it.

    i have a 921, which is pretty much the same guitar.

    the neck is the best rg neck IMO. the bridge is also my favorite hardtail.

    i have a set of full shreds in it now, but want to put lower output, more bluesy pickups in it.
