First of all, I had no idea how gorgeous the Ibanez 2027 would be. Pictures just simply don't come close to conveying the class and 3d beauty of this thing. Secondly, everything I've heard about DiMarzio Evolution pickups has gone right out the window. This thing sounds AMAZING. Maybe it's because this is a mahogany guitar, but the Evo7 in the bridge sounds incredible...for rhythm or lead! Superb articulation, very hot but still very toneful with loads of dynamics. I love this thing. The Blaze in the neck of course is superb too. I haven't tried the piezos yet but I'm sure it's nice. It's surprisingly heavy. It weighs more than my Schecter C7 Blackjack. Still very comfortable though. I could not be happier with this guitar. It's cheered me up, making me forget the fact I just had $900 robbed from me (pictures soon, I'm off to bed).
