    Not to be a contrarian (and ruffle feathers), but am I the only one that doesn’t like the new horn contours on that Jake Bowen prototype RGA (which I assume will be the basis of the new Prestige RGA)? I much prefer the gentler curves on the RGA121/321 and RGA420/8420 generations. *shrugs*...

    Not sure how I feel about the aesthetics of this model… https://www.sweetwater.com/store/detail/RG8570CSTNT--ibanez-j-custom-rg8570cst-electric-guitar-natural The pickup rings remind me of the golden 90’s era of Ibanez, and fretboard inlays scream “vintage”, but I don’t know if it fits the...

    Some of those "Kill Em All" vocals were pretty high! It was pretty smart if you think about... James was able to maintain a decent level of singing over the decades (whether you like the change in his style/technique is a matter of personal taste), whilst his contemporaries faceplanted.

    The "NAMM 2021" Thread

    I vaguely remember seeing a picture of it like a decade ago, but had forgotten about it ever since. I just searched "kill bon jovi v" on Google (as per CapinCripes's post).

    Duncan or DiMarzio - Which Do You Prefer?

    If you look at some carved-top/non-recessed-tune-o-matic guitars such as the Les Paul, you'll see that the neck is tilted back at a slight angle at the neck joint to compensate for the taller bridge height, similar to an old arch-top hollowbody. Manufacturers employ "tapered" pick-up rings to...

    Muddy PRS Custom 24

    Agree to a certain point. I own a Custom 24 and initially, I had the same complaints as the OP about the bridge pickup sound (as well with the neck humbucker sounding like a middle position pickup, but that is a different story). Pickup swaps can mitigate the problem, but will never “solve”...

    Ibanez 2019 New Stuff

    Hello to all the old SS.org members. Sorry if you were bombarded by my "likes" on your posts. I just came in to do my yearly "Ibanez New Stuff" lurking. Can't believe I just read all 53 pages (25 of those pages must have been debates on Evertune Bridges, tonewood, "Ibanez messed up one spec...

    Ibanez NAMM 2016

    This was probably done to address the poor fret ends of the previous Prestige maple fretboard necks. Basically, if I understand correctly, maple fretboards aren't as oily as rosewood or ebony boards, so to protect the wood from humidity and finger-oil stains, a lacquer coat has to be applied...

    Ibanez NAMM 2016

    I just wish that they would release more guitars with the Wizard HP neck (The FR6UC is the only current model that sports the Wizard HP, I believe.) That 17mm Super Wizard HP neck profile is just a little too thin & flat for my taste. Funny how 1mm can make a difference, I know. :scratch...
