    NGD! A bit late but...

    Ibanez RG1550M!!

    I've had this for a couple of months now but I didn't have a camera until today! I was GASing over one for about a year and finally got one about two months ago when I was in the US for xmas. This is an awesome axe and it plays like butter. My GAS levels have gone way down since I got it, maybe that's a good thing

    The whole process of finding one and finally bringing it home was adventurous to say the least . I bought it from GC (yeah I know ) and it was the only one they had available in the whole country. It took them a few days before they had it in store for pickup.

    The worst part is that... as I was flying back home, on my last flight from Athens to Cyprus, my luggage never got on the plane. I arrived at 8pm on new year's eve ready to celebrate the new year, only to find out that my shit was still in Athens No guitar, no clothes, no nothing. I did not celebrate anything that night... I was dead tired and fucking pissed and I felt like killing someone, not celebrating.

    Thankfully I got a call from the airline the next day telling me that my guitar had arrived and is ready for pickup. I jumped in the car and drove to the airport hoping that nothing bad happened. It turned out that the guitar was just fine and I felt very relieved, BUT I had to FUCKING PAY 150 VAT to customs to get it. As if leaving my luggage behind was not enough. That infuriated me even more because if my shit were on the plane in the first place, customs wouldn't have bothered with my luggage. The minute I got home I plugged it in, and after the first few notes everything was good again... I was glad to have my guitar at home safe and sound but this shit should not happen. Needless to say I'm not flying with that airline again

    tl;dr On with the porn!

    ...and while I'm at it, here's the complete rig.

    What's awesome about the color is that it changes from kinda dark blue to light blue, depending on how much light there is in the room.
