    I have absolutely no interest in buying and personally find it repulsive, but good on him for getting a sig model, talented guy for sure

    That looks noice.

    I've been hoping for more hard-tail options in the Prestige series and this one looks really neat.

    I love the green fade, it think it looks amazing! I've have preferred brushed nickel hardware or similar, but that can be changed :)

    Maybe even on prototype number 2 ;) ?

    Seems like the Indo factory is getting decent at doing those fades.

    Better they get spot on frets, because every Premium is trash-ready unless you refret it.

    Guess the 3 I owned must have been exceptions. They were a while ago though.

    I think everything about it is perfect. The colors, the gold hardware, the pickups... Fade DOES need some work, but it looks nice.

    About time he gets a sig, though. Hasn't he been using Ibanez since... forever?

    Yup, my bad. Looks remarkably nice for a Premium but never been a fan of the line.

    Reminds me of Jari’s Daemoness in terms of palate. Also in terms of having the headstock facing the wrong direction. I hate gold hardware personally, but there are times where it can work. Not convinced this is one, but not immediately repulsed.

    He had jumped ship to Mayones recently, he's on their site with a Duvell going on about the level of detail and such, but I remember he had some sweet LACS Ibanez with Blue Jays art and stuff.

    I like it but it needs a hipshot bridge and Prestige factory construction or I wouldn’t even pick it off the rack at the store.

    I refuse to buy anything not made in the US, Japan, or select EU countries. Call me discerning or call me a snob I care not:cool:

    The green/gold combo is pretty sweet.

    I don’t mind the gold in terms of looks at all. But I know it tarnishes over time, so I tend to avoid that finish.

    But I’m all over that color and fade! I like that it’s not a brown/gray/blue like a lot of similar ibbys.

    Looks pretty cool!

    Although I would be more excited if they were to release a version of that blue RGA he has.
