    Thanks! I followed this video for installing them. It was pretty easy. I might start doing it with a couple other guitars. Covers just look so classy! If only most of my other Ibanez guitars didn't have the older rounded routes. :wallbash:

    I was wondering when someone who had also seen it, was going to call me out about it. When I saw it on GC used, I figured I might as well take the risk and see how the guitar was for that price + Dimarzios included. Gotta love that 30 day return policy on used items.

    EMGs got delivered today. Should be installing the pots, etc. today after work. :yesway:

    The TZ people say are muddy is the 7 String version which is nothing like the awesome 6 string model.

    I'm not an Ibanez fan, but those look killer! I especially like the blue one. HNGD.

    Thanks everyone!

    Installed the EMG 66/57. Haven't been able to actual hear them.
    I'm running into an issue with either the 9v battery being old or the output jack just not working right.
    I'm getting a muddy low output mess going to my amp.
    I've double checked the wiring (from EMG diagrams), and it seems solid.
    Going to have to go out and buy a battery to test with later.
    Didn't have any spares on hand. :wallbash:

    Anyway here are the pics of how it turned out.
    I think it looks great! :agreed:

    Every time I see an RGA321 i immediately think that my RGA121 is inferior. :(

    Loving both axes!

    Don't feel that way!
    I have two 121's and they both definitely hold their own with the 321.
    The satin finishes are among my favorite.
