I simply adore the neck and fretwork. New frets are wonderful, and this is only my third brand new guitar (and the only one since I knew what I was doing), and I simply love new frets. The neck on this is the best I've ever had thet pleasure of playing.
In the thread linked to above, I mentioned that the locking nut wasn't routed low enough and the action was sky high. It was sent back to Jaden to be fixed, and he did a stirling job. Even did a set-up on the guitar whilst he had his hands on it (I'd ordered it in parts to put together myself).
Why am I trading? I suffer with back problems, and this guitar i just too heavy to play standing up. All guitars are, but this wood combo is even more so. My 'home' guitar is my irreplaceable 2027, so this is meant to be a 'live' guitar.
Tone-wise, it's ace, but not so significantly different to my 2027 that I can justify keeping it as a home guitar (plus, I can't afford to buy a back-up live guitar).
Enough waffle. Trade-wise, I'm only interested in higher end Ibanez 7s. No 7620s, 1527s, 7421s, etc. Could also be tempted by either a super-duper computer or an amp head.
My refs are mostly on ss.org as 'leec'. PM me if interested.
