    I played this at my local today. Was actually surprised by how well it played. It looks so much better in person as well, Ibanez haven't done themselves any favours with the stock photos this year.

    Cheers for the heads up! That's reassuring as nowhere in my country will have this in stock, and I'll need to order online.

    Took a chance and ordered a Majesty pedal from Tomasz at Longamp, Mesa mark 4 inspired drive pedal.

    Will have offset dots and black hardware instead, but the Luthier did the initial mockup before I mentioned those things. This is what amounts to my dream modern singlecut.

    Amazon has the M-Audio EX-P for only $22 bones right now, so fuck it, gave me a reason to get a 2nd expression pedal for my Helix, since I've read it's one of the few compatible expression pedals.

    I hope to be owning a late model Prestige RG within 12 hours.

    Locking tuners, straplocks, and a new flight case for my New Kevin Bond Jackson.

    Stupid Jackson thread giving me gas.

    I need to stay off this forum. Every damn time I browse....

    Nice! thanks for sharing. I just ordered one too. Used my points on my card and only paid like 8 bucks for the pedal.

    Unexpected opportunity couldn't miss. So I gotter. Mint 2018, PO swapped for Tone Zone and Air Norton. That Ibanez multitool is in the case too, not sure if that is original to the Prestige purchase these days but cool....

    Had to sell my Kemper, so I'm having to slowly rebuild a rig now that'll match its versatility and apartment-friendliness, and get close enough in tone for me to be happy. I'll be brushing up on my tapdancing skills I guess. :lol: Got an AMT M2 and R2 already, and just ordered this. Hopefully it'll help ease my pain. A reverb or delay will probably be next on the list.

    Exactly. To both :lol:

    The R2 definitely has that Recto flavor. Thick, chunky, growly. Just not as fizzy or scooped which i really like. The cab sims an old school analog lowpass EQ, so don't expect anything fancy. Just go straight into impulses.

    @Smoked Porter why get the C.A.B. when you can run the R2 straight into an interface if you want to use IRs? You can use a pedal power amp if you want to drive a cab too and it'll be apartment levels.

    @ATRguitar91 It will be for jamming with my buds too, not just for in my apartment. I already have a powered speaker, and didn't want to have to get a cab and power amp, for now anyway. Plus I like being able to play I tethered from the computer if I want.

    Yeah, I've been running it into free redwirez IRs on my laptop and really dig them both. I did try the cab sim out just out of curiosity, and yeah, no bueno. :lol:

    Yeah I agree there. I like the ability to just plug in and go when I just wanna jam by myself. Not needing to load up a bunch of programs

    The Mooer Radar is another nice little cheap unit for this also.
