    Ordered an Ibanez RG1121PB from Sweetwater last Saturday and it arrived today. Sweetwater was great, as usual. The finish on this is awesome. The neck is super nice and feels fantastic. I've only had it for a little over an hour, but so far I have zero complaints with it. The pickups sound better than what I was expecting. The fretwork and everything is spot on as well.

    Yeah, that was me. All is well so far. I have 30 days to return if I somehow end up not being happy with it.

    It would be nice if people would actually stop using imgur. Can't see shit.

    Nice! I’ve really liked all the Premiums I’ve played in the stores around me.

    the bridge on yours is cool too, I dig the individual saddles

    I wish SSO embedded imgur images correctly like every other forum does.

    If you hit the reply button on the OP's post however, you can sometimes see the images fine.

    It's an SSO problem.

    It's a very cool looking guitar. The hate on premium Ibanez's is so annoying. There was a time when people hated on Japanese made guitars. People...

    Didn't know Premiums had million piece necks. Awesome.

    Congrats and happy NGD!

    Yeah the high end Premiums have pretty tasty necks.
    The RGPCMLTD were similar, although they were textured because they had a wenge base. Those are among the best feeling necks in the industry IMO (regardless of brand or range), and I don't see why the one here would be any different in terms of quality (feel-wise, of course those would be sleeker with the maple vs the more textured Wenge).

    Imgur blocks this domain, probably for using enough bandwidth for them to notice. There's nothing SSO can do about it. There's a giant stickied thread about it that nobody ever reads

    Yup. If the forum owner gave a crap about this forum beyond ad impressions, I bet they could figure it out.

    The reason given in the sticky is BS, since TGP has far more traffic and a classified section, yet works fine with imgur.

    Rig-Talk and TGP are much bigger sites than SSO but they embed imgur files perfectly fine. I'm not buying their excuses.

    that's nice but you have no clue how these things work

    we had this happen on a much smaller forum I frequent, it's completely up to whatever the fat bluehairs that run imgur decide they don't want to be associated with

    And neither do you, apparently.
    Notice what, exactly? What could SSO be possibly doing so vastly differently from sites like TGP who also have classifieds that imgur forbids SSO from embedding? And if embedding truly is forbidden on this site, why do images embed correctly when I reply to a post with imgur images tagged in them?

    SSO has been so vague and coy about giving any real information about this.

    They see the referrers from people clicking imgur links and viewing embeds on this domain and block the site. If it fixes in your browser it has something to do with blocking referrers locally. SSO could completely block referrers on the site but there are reasons to not want to do that
