    One detail I didn't pay attention before having it : the middle PU ring is recessed ! what a great idea !

    That "Champagne Gold" is definitively not the one you had with a JS2000 ! more greyish-greenish, but not really "gold"

    At first touch, the neck is quite surprisingly comfy : it's more thick than expected on an prestige Ibanez, with a roundy shape 1-12 and near flat 13-24
    Need some use, but looks like to be smartly designed, interesting

    Pickups : need more use, have to find what sound goes with which PU
    I think they are really between HB and single coils, will tell you after more practice
    I see on DiMarzio site they are 4wires - maybe a fancier wiring ? future will tell

    Congrats on the PGM - They are such stunning instruments! and this is like no other.

    Fake Fholes make you play 10% faster.

    Awesome! I was thinking about getting one of these mainly because I don’t have a guitar with mini hums as I already have an HH PGM. What do you think of the mini hum’s in your new guitar?

    As said before, they sound between a single coil and a HB or maybe like a vintage HB I'm not used to ?
    Definitely different from what I use to have , that's nice though - I' m still searching for a good setup with my AxeFX and I didn't want a guitar sounding like my others.
    Also not very versatile - the 3pos switch plays more like a varitone
    I need more time to refine my appreciation
