    I don't have any experience with it, but just had to mention how slick that neck looks. Love the combination of offset dots with binding!

    Absolutely fantastic guitars that are a bore to play.

    But I've been playing Ibanez stuff for like a million years, so I'm probably just being a stick in the mud.

    Again, absolute beasts, but just nothing "new", but if you want a fixed bridge Ibanez RG, it's probably the objectively best one they've ever made.

    Slap some F-hole stickers on there and you have your own PGM.

    I have one. Swapped the pickups though. The neck feels really nice. It's a bit thicker than older Super Wizards, IMO. Compared it to old RG550. The guitar itself is quite heavy, but it feels really solid. Plays smoothly. Currently selling it because I just can't get used to flat bridges.

    I just bought one of these last week. Am planning on a NGD post eventually.

    sneak preview: it’s really good. I love the stock PUs. The neck is great.

    2DCF72D2-9ADB-43FE-957F-00226EB3EF14.jpeg It arrived today! The build quality is outstanding. Really digging the stock pickups. Playability 10/10.
