    Ever get one of those deals that are just too good to be true? This was actually a used buy at GC. Everything is practically brand new (including the case).

    Anyhoo...on to the pics.

    The pickups are actually stock, but the Quantums aren't half bad. I actually got this for $349. It still had all the hang tags and case candy included. I mean this is a NEW guitar. I always feel a bit bad for the person that must have been so desperate for cash to sell this to GC at such a low price. I say new because I'm pretty sure this finish is a late 15 or new to 16 model finish.

    I love the look of these. Almost pulled the trigger on a similar looking S- something-or-other a while ago. :yesway:

    Swap that floyd for a Graphtech one with the ghost system and you'll have an RG2027X clone... or something similar...

    Model number on the back of the headstock should give you an idea of how recent it is.
    Looks kill though man. The vaneer on that one is super nice.

    HNGD, these seem to be like the 7421pb with a trem.

    I've only seen them on ibanez's website this year. To find that for that price like that is a pretty nice score.

    I think Ibanez is trolling me, I got a 7421pb and love it, now there dangling one with a trem in my face. I must resist!

    I've been eyeing the walnut finished model, but must resist!! I'm now thinking of throwing a Crunch Lab in the bridge, or maybe a Blaze.

    let me guess the headstock is gloss black?........... :wallbash:

    If it had the awesome same blue finish up there too I would of bought one of these. So tired of companies not colour matching and I honestly dont understand why

    For the same reason all Indos have a Wizard-II neck. ;)

    It feels very similar to the LO-TRS bridges that used to come standard with the lower to midrange Ibbys in the 90s/early 2000s, before the Edge III days. It's your basic licensed Floyd type that does the job as well as need be.

    I did think it looked pretty much the same as the Lo-TRS to my eye. I think that one got an unfairly bad rep.
