Best Ibanez Guitar Ever!!!
I own 21 guitars 7 of them are Ibanez (4 are RGs). This is by far the absolute best Ibanez, dare I say best guitar I ever played!! Right out of the case (and it comes with a beautiful custom case with an embroidered logo, the first I've seen) it plays absolutely amazing! Super low and fast action, smooth fretboard, and completely comfortable radius (you can hardly tell your playing a 7-string). Even my other, older Ibanez 7-string doesn't compare to this baby! I played one of the original universe guitars from '94 in this exact color scheme (John Petrucci, DT music video from the mid 90s). I wanted a used one that was in my local ship for longest time. Even quite a bit worn the guy wanted $1300 for it. I've lingered the Internet for years hoping for one to come out. When I saw this at NAMM, I was ecstatic!! They were on back order with Sweetwater and my Sales Engineer, Randy, remembered long after we spoke when they finally came in and alerted me that there was one left unclaimed. Having just liquidated all my cash due to divorce, I was hesitant, but I didn't wanna let the chance slip away again! Thank God for the Sweetwater card and no-interest financing!! You only live once! And I'm so glad I did it!!!
