    RS-1 Ralph Santolla Italian Flag model - made in the Ibanez L.A. Custom Shop in 1992.

    OK, I got it more for being the Italian flag than being a Santolla model but it's a great guitar. Neck's a little fatter than normal Prestige models and sounds great.
    Original DiMarzio custom pickups and decided to leave them in until I can get a feel for them and see if I like them or not.
