Yeah, it does have a Wizard neck, not sure why I wrote Wizard II, thanks for pointing that out!

Here's the catalogue from the year mine came out:

I'll have some more picures up soon, been really busy the past few days so I haven't gotten a chance to take any more.

Now that I think about it, the flame maple top probably adds enough treble to balance with the TZ...

My point is: is the PAF Pro brighter than most neck pickups, but still sounds like a neck humbucker pickup?

Awesome find, I've never seen that ad. I'll post picks of my Twilight Blue when it gets here too.

Do you know the story behind these pre-2003 models being made in the Fujin Factory and the post-2003 models being made elsewhere? I was told the Fujin Factory Ibanez are some of the best build quality they've ever made.

edit - Soz, "Fujigen" was the name of the factory I was looking for. Some details here:

I got the same Trem (Lo-Pro) on my JEM and I love it. Best trem you can get by Ibanez IMO.

Really nice guitar man. If I get the S prestige, I'll have almost the same setup as you, lol. I also have a Mark IV.

Very similar setup here with a RG2020xtb through a Mark III, absolutely plays itself.

Are the prestige Ibanez's made in Korea or Japan?

I was looking at an 800 S prestige, yet it was still Korean made for top dollar..

most of the Ss are korean, I think (there are a couple of exceptions- the 24 fret ones, i think). The prestige RGs are still japanese. I think, anyway.

Well my RG3120 finally arrived from the US so heres some pics as promised. First impressions are that it's simply sublime. The feel and action seems perfect, the pickups offer a really usable variety of tones and with loads of distortion dialled in they clean up beautifully when the volume is rolled off. Only problem is I busted the B over-tightening the locking nut (I assume, I cant feel a burr and the string doesnt look old) so I only got about 10 mins of playing in!! Gotta buy new strings tomorrow, can't believe I didn't think to grab some today. Anyway, heres the pics:











Shes even more beautiful in real life, the blue changes from really light to dark depending on the lighting and the natural binding contrasted with the dark back looks pure raunch imo. I've fallen instantly in love with this guitar, the build quality seems faultless and I just can't imagine getting anything better for the price locally....

It was US$900, with shipping and currency conversion it was about AUS$1100 landed. By comparison the RG1570 is AUS$2500 rec retail locally, although you can find it for AUS$1500 (source http://www.guitar.com.au/guitars/el...banez/index.htm) I've played the RG1570, imo its a terrific guitar but I think the RG3120 is its superior so I'm just stoked to get my 2002 model in such excellent condition.

Nice! Really like that blue, but there's always been something about red that I like on guitars, unless it's just plain red, eww lol.

Cheers, thought I'd post one more pic of the RG3120 before the month is over - here it is alongside the amp I've bought to go with it, they make a great sounding pair.

i'm not a fan of ibanez's but that one looks quite nice. it was a great review and tbh, i think its the first guitar i've ever seen with a mahogany body.

Hi, I'm just curious why you stringed it through in reverse?
