She finally got here and I am stoked! Not much to look at finish wise, but the bevels are killer and she sounds great! The fret job is impeccable and the neck is immaculate! I noticed the 26.5 scale adds the slightest bit of baritone timbre to my tone and i'm loving it.

Also did a quick tone test, tell me what you think?

Didn't see the D in the model number, thought there were more fixed bridge Prestiges that I didn't know about. Damnit. Looks nice though.

The Bridge on this thing is actually a lot better than I expected it to be. Very stable, looks nice, and easy to adjust. I'd wager all that metal helps transfer some vibration to the body as well. :shred:

Cleans aren't too bad rolled down, but i'm still wanting to get a push pull coil split installed on her one knob :lol:

The only question is which Pups to throw in? I was thinking Lundgren M7 bridge/Coldsweat Neck (for shred)

I also like my cleans really glassy though, not sure how the Coldsweat would be for that.

Opinions?

I have the 2011 6-string version so your mileage may vary on the pups but I outfitted mine with a calibrated Holydiver set and love it. HNGD!

A pickup that I REALLY love for basswood for HEAVY, chunky rhythm would be a BKP Warpig. If you're looking for more of an overall good pickup for basswood, Miracle Man. This forum is full of this kind of info. Good luck, and sick NGD! I want one so bad. :(

Gonna be the odd one out here and suggest the Duncan FullShred for the bridge. It's slightly scooped (ON PAPER) but the cleaner mids allow for the pickup to breathe a lot and with a djenty esque EQ it will do the midrange snarl as well as any other pickup. The difference is that it stays tighter than absolutely any pickup I have played, ever. The leads also sound a lot better than most due to it's Alnico V magnet rather than the Ceramic quack you get with most run-of-the-mill ''voiced for metal'' pickups.

I love this concept.

I've always loved the aesthetics of Ibanez trems, real futuristic. Now a fixed bridge that looks like a trem is just awesome.

Congrats mate! HNGD!

I'm seriously thinking of trying to ditch my 1527 for one of these. I can't get my setup right at all. Think I got's a lemon. Need me this 2127!!!

would kill for one with a no inlay ebony board and swamp ash body :scream:

Still, I want one [w/the trem]. Still my favorite super strat shape, those bevels and the bouts are full metal in the best ways :bowdown:Love the control layout too. I so want to refinish one for fun.
