    I've been searching for an Ibanez prestige ever since my other guitar player got one. It played so nice so I have been GASing for one ever since. Recently got in contact with ben (or watsonb2 on here) since he was selling his. Awesome guy, helped me since i'm not too good with online transactions. Well, a week has passed since the transaction and i'm happy to see a nice lady delivering a large package to my doorstep.

    It is an Ibanez prestige RGA 121 in trans black finish. It is in awesome condition and it plays like a dream.
    I only wish I could have gotten this guitar earlier for it is amazing! Plays fast and it is light weight. The tuners keep to its name....for it stays in tune very well.
    I love the Gibralter bridges and it feels nice to palm mute with it. The pickups....are gonna be switched out for dimarzios (i'll probably post a thread about that, why not).
    I am a happy camper and this definitely will NOT be my last prestige purchase. :agreed:

    Ha I'm not. My step grandfather have that to me. And yes it is my favorite bridge. Probably why I like rga's the most.

    I was actually looking for either violin finish or a natural one so I wouldn't rip off my other guitar player's swag when we played live. But I couldn't pass this up! haha

    As I scrolled down the pics I was really expecting some drab, brand new Ibby, then :scream:

    Needs me a 121 so bad. Rare in America, gold-dust in the UK.

    Seriously jelly. HNGD.

    Haha don't get me wrong. It has its fair share of scuffs, but from the pictures it really shows how unnoticeable they are. And damn that sucks. I've seen a few UK FS threads here for them but not much. Good luck man

    Very nice!The RGA121 is one of the most underrated IbanezĀ“s ever.Just put some new pups in it and you have yourself a shredding tone maching.
