    Is that a set neck or bolt on model? I saw one today actually but didn't dare touch it lol

    There was actually a white version for a few bucks more down the road from where I got this, but the burst looked so much better.

    Noted on the Aldrich. All told, I only spent 5 minutes with it plugged in so I suppose it's too soon to pass judgement. I might actually spend more time with the guitar as is, and A/B it with my friend's Gibson LP Custom to get a better indication of what I want out of the instrument.

    I thought about that too, and that seems to be the knee jerk reaction when it comes to Les Pauls around these parts. It does look great on it's own but...



    ...so does this.

    Snag one when the opportunity presents itself. I missed out on a lawsuit Flying V and I'm trying not to regret it...

    That looks gaudy. I might keep this "traditional" so the P-Rail route is out. I'll probably put those on an RG or something.

    Bolt on. That was actually the reason why I hesitated getting the aforementioned Flying V as well as a 3 pickup SG. Both were bolt on and I thought maybe if I wait for a set neck model I'll snag that. Of course I haven't seen a lawsuit V for sale since. I even hesitated at this too. But after picking it up and playing it, it felt and sounded like a real Les Paul Custom, nice and heavy. With this, I get to play an awesome sounding Les Paul while still playing Ibanez, so it works well.

    Dude, that is nice!

The accumulated filth of all their sex and murder will foam up about their waists and all the whores and politicians will look up and shout "Save us!"... and I'll look down and whisper "No.” ― Alan Moore

    Versatility? Got to be EMG 81's then

    On a more serious note, that's a lovely looking guitar, but for the love of your deity of choice DO NOT put a guard on that!

    The bolt ons are the one to get, and it does look awesome with the pickguard Congrats man

    I'm too petty to buy one of the vintage Ibanez bolt on versions of traditionally set neck models (even though it's the same functionality), but I've always wanted one of the single cut "Agent" models with the gorgeous mandolin style headstock.



    That one looks like it has a nice tight pocket. I've had a number of pre-RG era Ibanezs, and the bolt ons are prone to substandard pockets or misalignment, that one looks great.

    The Custom Agents sometimes come up on the Ibanezcollectors forum
