Traded my S540LTD away this week. I never got along with the body shape, and lack of 24 frets. Instead of selling it, I got a trade deal off HC on something I've always sorta wanted...
So, this is what I received in the mail:
There are more than a few dings, which is fine, I was expecting them:
Little fretboard wear:
So, after taking it out of the case, and cleaning it up a bit, I swapped on some knobs while I wait for parts/etc. What is this guitar you ask?
Just a Laser Blue RG565.
God damn this thing is fun to play. It needs some love, which I will give it(have touch up paint coming as we speak). I also plan to swap the pickups for a Pro Track in the neck, and I'm not sure what bridge pickup(Super3? Breed? D-Sonic?).
Much happier with this than that S though. Sorry S lovers.
I notice there is some string-pull on the headstock. Is that common for all reverse headstock Ibanez's?
