After months and months of waiting, it's finally here! My RG1027PBF
Oh damn i lusted after one of those for months. Decided to go with an string schecter but that finish still haunts me. Amazing
NIIICCCEEE!!! Love it
I ordered mine in January, and its scheduled for FedEx delivery by EOD tomorrow!
Here's the guitar they shipped me:
Congrats to you too man! You're going to love it. It looks surprisingly better in person, you won't be disappointed!
aww yeah I've been wanting to order one of those so bad! Congrats!
Wow this looks absolutely phenomenal!!!! We need a review of this bad boy asap.
Hows the fretwork?
Oh, and the action?
Will do! I'll play with it for a little before I post a short review up
Honestly man, the fretwork feels better than my Prestige. And I absolutely love my Prestige. Every one is rounded perfectly and the stainless steel feels smooth like butter.
Looks like they have the action set at about 3/32" (not sure if zzsounds sets up guitars before shipping...First time ordering from them. But that's what it's at at the moment.)
Cool! Enjoy it! This is my first Ibanez and my first 7.
I am speechless.
Early review: The look is stunning (glass like gloss) and as I mentioned before, the fret edge treatment is better on this Premium than on my Prestige. I was anxious to see how the neck played and felt. It's definitely different. Not a bad different, but different. I'm used to the smooth necks and this one you can feel the grain and feels like a different shape. I can also feel the texture on the Wenge fretboard as well. The sustain on this guitar is pretty much out of this world. Credit goes to the 11 piece neck. The guitar feels very high quality and is heavier in weight than I expected. The Tight End R bridge is absolutely solid. Which I have in my Prestige as well, but this feels more solid due to the solid and heavy body. That plus the Gotoh tuners keep the tuning very stable. The Dimarzio pickups are actually very clear and articulate beautifully. All while the 5 way switch gives it very useful voicings. I can see myself using each of them. I wish the side lumilay dots were brighter though. I also prefer my volume knobs on my Prestige than this Premium. Just personal preference. And honestly... That may be about it. I'm sure the MIJ fan boys are going to come rushing in, but I don't regret buying this over another Prestige at all (which was my original plan.) This isn't the Premium series of old. They definitely stepped up their game, and not just aesthetically but materials and craftsmanship as well. Beautiful finish, stainless steel frets, 11 piece neck, etc etc. Not one regret buying this guitar, I'd recommend it to anyone.
So these don't have the finish feel on the back of the neck like the Prestiges, rather the raw feel of the Standards? Might kill it for me, but that's great to hear that craftsmanship has improved. Hopefully this isn't an exception and is the new standard.
mmmm dat neck. I love a wenge neck.
It doesn't feel like a standard but it is more on the raw side than the Prestige side. I'm big on things having to feel right in my hands and it hasn't bothered me at all
Usually the pictures people take of those kinds of guitars are worse than the stock photos, but that looks even better in your pics. That guitar gives me eyeball boners.
How's it balanced compared to other RGs? That neck must be pretty heavy...
I tried one of the iron labels recently with the open pored wenge necks and fretboards. It's so sexy.
The balance is good, no complaints. I think it's balanced well cuz the whole guitar feels solid and heavy
