    The other day it was a NGD! So it's an Ibanez RGA61AL. My first "Axion Label" and it is pretty spectacular. QC is perfect, frets smooth all the way up, no buzz anywhere, super low action, it's just great. I've read some so-so reviews about the AL line but this one is a home run. Absolutely love it. The Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups sound massive. Couldn't be happier, enjoy the pics!

    Congrats, glad to hear this one is a winner! I can’t remember if I played this model or not at my local GC, but the vast majority of ILs have been fantastic. The RGA shape is so slick.

    Thanks man! It's also my first guitar to feature luminlay fret markers and the Ibanez logo on the headstock is also luminlay which looks pretty cool in the dark!

    I didn’t realize the headstock logo was luminlay too, that is a nice touch!

    Brothah! I have the 7 string version. nice job man!

    I hated the aftermath pickups for a long time, but I finally figured out how to make them really sing and I love my RGA71AL now. I love the finish on these too!

    Nice one dude!
