    I think I'm in love. Already have a 6 string Prestige and an 8 string Prestige. Figured I'd complete the set.

    RGD7UCS
    26.5"
    Ebony fretboard
    Stainless steel frets
    Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups
    And the nicest and smoothest bridge I've used so far

    The neck is much thicker than anticipated. Definitely fatter or rounder than my KM-7 MKII. But it still plays effortlessly. Easily my new favorite and best sounding guitar by far. Especially through my Fortin Grind.

    All that's left for me now is that RGR5227MFX. Hopefully next year!

    HNGD! The Tight-End R is hands down the best fixed bridge I've played, I don't know why that thing doesn't get thrown around like candy or sold separately because they'd sell like hotcakes.

    It seems like it would be a little bit pricey, as it's a lot of material. If I had to venture a guess, I'd probably put it double the darling-of-the-indutry hipshot fixed, but below something like the Schaller Hannes maybe.

    Beauty!
    Tight-End R is a great bridge, I agree!

    Agreed, have one on my RG921 and love the thing. Best bridge i've come across. Happens to look cool as well!

    Happy NGD! Always dug that model whenever i've seen it

    Happy NGD - one of my favourite Ibanez models. You can actually buy that bridge separately, comes at 125 Euro from the German Ibby distributor.

    NICE! Recently got an RGD2127z myself, a bit jealous of that fixed bridge. Congrats!

    Love it! I’ve been really tempted by this model since they put stainless steel frets on. I’ve heard nothing but good things about the tight end bridge, but have never got the opportunity to play one myself. Enjoy!!
