It's not technically mine, but it showed up in our store today, so I decided to snap a few pictures of it, so you guys can finally get to see some real life pictures of this thing, instead of just stock catalog photos. What I like: Uncanny resemblance to my J. Custom, save for the veneer top on this one. The heel joint, neck profile, and even the figured maple neck binding, inlays and even down to the script on the back of the headstock is in the same place. Also this thing has ridiculously good fretwork. The veneer looks very nice and the headstock matches up very nicely. Also, the back of the neck is oiled and natural all the way up to the volute, then it was masked off and the back of the headstock is lacquered. What I don't like: The pickups, but that is a matter of personal preference. Still better than the Ibanez Infinity pickups though. Also, there are a couple of small finish flaws, but nothing to complain majorly about. A couple of small spots on the "binding" that the purple stain seeped into, also the neck bolt holes have a little bit of discoloration, you can see that in the picture. The paint line where the lacquered headstock meets the oiled section of the neck was masked off kind of harshly. It's smooth, but it's just a hair crooked. All in all, this is a really cool guitar, it's nice to see Ibanez bringing some of the features of the J. Custom and old US custom guitars into the market in their imports. Here are some pictures!
