    'Sup, fellas?

    Got a new one! I'm down to one guitar, so I figured I should have something that meets all of my needs - a seven string, 24 frets, a trem, etc... basically, I needed something where I could play any song I desired, and this is the ticket.

    This is the "Z" model with the Edge Zero - haven't gotten to fully test it out yet since I'm waiting on the bar to be shipped to me, though I will say that it's by FAR the easiest setup I've ever done with a floating trem. Turn the thumbscrew a couple times and good to go.

    I got it in TERRIBLE condition. Rust & dust everywhere, dings all over, horrible setup and nowhere near being in tune. I swapped out the pickups to my favorite set (Liquifire in the bridge, PAF 7 in the neck), cleaned it up and got everything where it should be. This thing shreds

    I'm also pleasantly surprised with the neck shape on this. Typically not a fan of thinner necks, but this one is working for me so far. I think it's more comfortable than my old 7620 (which wasn't all that great to begin with).

    Rather than a bunch of pictures of an RG that looks identical to all the rest, I figured I'd do an NGD up right. With REALLY FAST MOVING PICTURES.

    Those things absolutely have one of my favorite Ibanez neck profiles.
