This is actually a little belated as I received both of them about a week ago, but there were some lovely ebay issues with the Ibanez. So, my first guitar I ever bought was a Jackson Performer PS-4. That guitar was stolen from me. I've bought two more of them since then, but they were Korean made, mine was MIJ. Well, I just got a blazing deal on another MIJ one in excellent condition of another forum. I'm pretty excited. Don't get me wrong, it's a cheap guitar. It's no where near as nice as my Jackson USA's, but I also think the Performer series is vastly underrated and can usually be had for under $200, basically because they don't have the frills other models have. I plan on replacing the stock Jackson pickups with either a Seymour Duncan Custom or an Alternative 8 in the bridge and a Jazz in the neck. (I have all of the pickups in my box of parts, so I am not putting anything else in it. ) And eventually I might put a new Floyd on it, but I'm fine with the stock one for now, besides the fact that it needs a new collar piece for the trem arm. And pics... I used to have an AS73 in flat black, but the color bothered me enough that I had to sell it. Well, here is it's replacement, an Ibanez AS83 Semi-hollow. This one is going to get upgrade with new tuners, Dimarzio 36th PAF pickups, and a new wiring harness. It's a sweet guitar, but it has already left a sour note in my mouth because of ebay issues and I delayed an NGD for it for a week because of damage to the guitar. I almost returned it to the guy, but he reluctantly refunded me money. Seriously, how do you miss a caved in output jack? WTF? I got some money back for it, but I have to screw a Les Paul jack plate to cover up the damaged part.
