    Got this from my local dealer, Levytukku, couple of weeks ago. I got this purely for it's looks, and as a backup for our Tuska gig :)

    There is some flaws in finishing, like the fret ends and some tooling marks on the neck binding. Otherwise it plays well!

    And this will be my setup for Tuska (pedalboard is not in the picture :rolleyes:).

    This guitar looks solid. How does the neck profile compare to the one on your RGD7UC?

    The neck feels a bit flatter on the RGD, thou they have the same dimensions on the specs.

    Very nice! I do like reverse headstocks, always annoyed me that they were either on really cheap, or just stupidly rare guitars, even though they really look cool.

    Reverse headstocks rock.

    I love to see Ibanez is putting out reverse headstocks in all price ranges.

    Does the neck have big shoulders compared to your prestige? This was what turned me off to Ibanez for so long only to find out that the Nitro neck is nothing like the Prestige necks. I found that the shoulders were so big and uncomfortable on the Iron Labels.

    It should have more shoulders than Prestige, but it isn't that bad. Wizard III is the worst one I've tried.

    what about the fret edges? I've stayed away from the iron labels because of the shoddy fret jobs, but theres a few in this lineup that I'd like to try out.

    On a 6, I can do it, but on a 7 it's the most uncomfortable neck I've ever played.

    I play a wizard 3 neck on my 7 string Iron Label.... feels great to me as I like a little bit of girth! Each to their own I suppose!!

    Also the fret finishing on my RGDIX7 is great... unlike the 6 string PRS-SE and RGA-IX6 UC I played recently.
