Been avoiding the ZPS like plague but I got this at a criminal price so I jumped on it...
Ibanez 2XXV, the non Premium 25th anniversary models.
I wanted to give it a Jem throwback vibe. Pink Dimarzios Evolution Neck, FS1 middle, Evo2 Bridge, pink selector and yellow knobs. Unfortunately 2 drawbacks occurred:
The store couldn't get me the yellow strat knobs on time, so they've put those pink ones instead temporarily until they get the yellow ones. One of the guys in the store said that Dimarzio have discontinued certain coloured strat knobs... but I don't believe a word of it. Either way...
They've put the Evolution 1 bridge instead of the Evo2, so that's another one to exchange. Unfortunately, getting pink pickups to Melbourne may take some time, so that'll be a while.
Minor quibbles aside, the guitar is pretty sweet overall. It's also the heaviest RG I own, seriously this chunk of basswood is ridiculous, which is good as the thing is acoustically loud. The real test is going to be the EZ2 bridge. Most players ditch the ZPS, but I've specifically kept it on. I wanted it to have a different feel. And yes, I'm not gonna be nice to the trem at all. I'll be treating it the same way Chris Brown treats women.
Wish me luck!
