    Grats, man! Thing of beauty right there! SO much nicer than his Jacksons. The body shape is just weird to me, but this is just right :)

    I was wondering where this one ended up; I was sure Chris would've sold this at some point.
    Super congrats on the score, that's one of my fav LACS! :agreed:

    Its got to be an eye opening experience and maybe partially why he left Ibanez? Imagine being an artist who has been a fan of Ibanez for years and years, playing Prestiges and thinking 'man this is great, but someday I'll have a LACS that will be my holy grail of guitars' and it being any less than stellar. I've had that happen to me a couple times now with various higher dollar guitars, but they weren't hand made for my by that company haha.

    I think this isn't quite what I mean. I mean to say that no guitar is a significant improvement over a j-custom, not even a made-for-mega-star instrument. Not anything particular to Ibanez, more something about our general perceptions regarding instruments and quality and unicorns.

    I have an LACS RG7 and it differs significantly from my other made in japan ibbys. I mean, it doesn't necessarily play better but it feels WAY different. Better fretwork, hardware, better wood quality etc. I feel like its built to withstand a lot of abuse, its a solid heavy instrument for sure.
