    This one is a few weeks old now, but I finally got my first J Custom and I'm over the moon!

    This one is a 2001 RG8527/JCRG7-1. These things don't pop up often/at all in Australia and when I seen this one for the price, I couldnt help but make myself broke to snag it up.

    It has a few decent dings in the front of the guitar, chipped the clear coat out down to raw maple. Hoping to do a small spot repair with some super glue and amber colouring to match in a bit better.

    Needed a decent shim in the neck to get it to where I wanted it for playability. But fretwork and overall feel of this thing is incredible.

    Anyway, heres some pics with some of my other sevens as well, hopefully these Imgur links work.
    Thanks guys,
    Mick

    I Love that guitar man! Congrats.

    I use to have two of those. If it's number 01 or 36 then it use to be mine : ) Sold them off because I had to many guitars at the time and played others more. You can't go wrong with these though. Absolutely incredible instrument.

    At first I was impressed by the beautiful J Custom... now you need to give us a room tour. You must be a pretty big deal in Australia with a collection like that, shit you even seem to have every neon Dimarzio cliplock strap haha

    Thanks so much guys!
    Thanks so much! It's a beast! The room goes alright too haha

    Alright haha room tour tonight, I'll post it up here after work!
    I wish I was a big deal :rofl: But just an avid collector on a super low music store wage haha. I actually do have every neon strap they have yeah! The blue one is hiding somewhere

    Dude you know the struggle! It's so hard to find cool shit like this down here. Finally someone else knows the struggle :agreed:
    So stoked to be part of the club. If you're a Bris local we should meet up!

    If I were to get an Ibanez again, it would be a J Custom or a JS2410.

    Happy NGD! Looks like an incredible instrument.

    One of my true gear-related regrets is selling one of these a few years back. Absolutely wonderful instruments, through and through. Congratulations!
