    It's always great to open such threads!
    So, here's the beast of the day: a bargain on an 2009 Ibanez S320 WK. "Weathered Black", they say...

    I was hoping to receive a really beat up guitar. But no!!! Actually, it was in really good conditons! Minor scratches on the edges that came off nicely with the water/hot iron trick and a black Sharpie.

    It might have been the gunkiest fretboard I've ever seen, but it was only superficial gunk. Lots and lots of dust and grease. But it came off nicely and revealed a pretty well preserved guitar!
    The frets are new, basically. Practically no wear.

    I have fitted it with a set of Elixir Nanoweb .012s and it is now tuned down to C (two steps down).
    Plans in course for a pickup replacement: DiMarzio Titan set, with matt black covers and chrome pole pieces.

    Also, a custom truss-rod plate is being designed...

    There aren't enough S models out there. Love these guitars... HNGD! I need an S5527 (preferably) or an S5427 in my collection...
