    Got this hot rod from S2K9K in a trade for my RG2228A. Aside from Paul being a sweet dude, he takes great care of gear. This thing's as impeccable as a matte finish Ibby can be. Set up almost EXACTLY how I'd tune (at least one of them ha!) down to action and string gauge. I'd had notions of ganking the pickups but in retrospect the Blaze Custom and Dactivator neck mesh well and give a really woody, organic bent (the scale length probably helps a bit). I'm fast envisioning this guy to be in rotation for my #1 piece. Killer, killer guitar, really unique/ special production model Ibby for sure. Thanks Paul!

    And without further yammering... here dem pix:

    Oooh it's here: (The UPS guys INSISTED on carrying it in label side up because they didn't want to be responsible for damage)

    Like is an understatement bro...:hbang::shred::lol::squint:

    And you've seen the majority of the other ones... this one's awesome. Likewise I'm stoked that you dig the 2228A. Worked out to be in the right place at the right time.

    That was all Paul. I have some bobbin toppers enroute to try a zebra look, but i doubt it's doing to work well...these pickups sound great in the guitar so there's really no reason to swap them.

    Drool! I must have one of these sometime down the road!

    I'm thinking about the new Uppercut Prestige series RGD they have out with Bare Knuckles in it...$500 difference between one of those and one of these with stock pick-ups, not sure if it's worth it...

    Awesome NGD! I love my 2127! Quick question though, do you know exactly which model of locking tuners that is? I've been trying to figure out which would work for mine and I can seem to find them anywhere.

    Would you happen to know exactly which set? They have a ton and I know not all will fit the RGD
