Everyone loves end of the year top 10 lists! I did not count the Natnick since she ain't built yet or the Swirlnick since putting a custom on the list seems kinda wrong anyway. Took a few pics out because most saw the NGD pics anyways.
Atomic batteries to power. Turbines to speed. Ready to move out!
#10 - Ibanez Axstar AX-75
Hard to find, easy to love.
#09 - Ibanez VX500
The Ibanez history book was right. It IS a motherf**ker to play above the 13th fret.
#08 - Ibanez USA Custom (Lizard)
This guitar is so sweet it's like eating a box of candy bars and chasing that with a bottle of molasses.
#07 - TIE!!! Ibanez Maxxas MX-3 & Ibanez Maxxas MX-2
Both are awesome and couldn't pick between them. Both equally gorgeous as well.
#06 - Ibanez 540PIISH
Do I really need to say anything?
#05 - Caparison Apple Horn Orange
This guitar surprised me. Sounds and feels awesome. Wasn't sure about the outer material or the carved image top but became one of my favorites.
#04 - Ibanez USA Custom (Get Me Out Of Here)
My other USA Custom for this year. Dead frickin' mint. Sounds frickin' mint, too!
#03 - Ibanez RG765 prototype
Another surprise. Sounds amaaaaaaazing with the EMG-X's I put in it. Sacrilege? Perhaps. LOL.
#02 - Caparison TAT Special Amber
The spiritual child of my old Hamer Californian that I sold foolishly in my youth. Better bridge and feel, tho. My #4 guitar on my collection faves list.
OMG! He's crazy!!!!!
Really, this guitar has been a blast to play. Very comfortable and better since adding the EMG-X's (and saving the Hot Rail pup for another day) and taking the paint off the neck to reveal it's natural state. She's just frickin' SINGS and the sustain is insane (in da membrane).
Quickie! Top 3 worst guitar I got in 2010.
#3 - Hembry Iceman - Not horrible but nothing spectacular. Plus, dude didn't put strap buttons on it!
#2 - Alvarez Dana Scoop - Korean krap. Hates divebombs. Hates staying in tune as well.
#1 - Bunker Treker Custom - One buyer returned it. One buyer never paid. I'm gonna Townshend this POS soon enough.
There you go. Replies on how much I'm hated now being accepted and appreciated.
I have a question though... Do you still own ALL these?
