So after several months of constant work in variuos classfied sections I finally found a new home for both my Parker NiteFly M and ESP Mirage 7 and then ended up with this:



It's an Ibanez RG8420 and it's very red and very cool. I wish the neck profile were a little more suited to my tastes, but the craftmanship is top notch so I can't complain. The satin finish on the back of the neck is very very smooth and comfortable, the frets are perfectly finished and not a mile high and the inlay work is excellent for a production guitar.

The EDGE Zero is one of the least annoying floating trems I've had to deal with so that is also a plus. The EMGs are also pretty nice. I would prefer a nice set of BKPs in it, but they get the job done just fine and I need all my money for other expenses at the moment.

Honestly, I didn't see myself ever owning one of these. I've got a bit of an obsession with 24 fret bolt-on maple neck guitars with mahogany bodies and maple tops, so this fit that prefectly and it's cool to try out the best thing Ibanez has to offer short of finding a LACS. There are a lot of little details on this guitar that show Ibanez really cares about them.

Not too sure if I'm going to be holding on to this because it is a little flashy for my tastes, but I'm going to spend some time with it and get a good feel before I decide.

Anyways, more pictures!

I opened my eyes and found my mother standing next to me with my sheets in one hand and the other hand over her eyes. She said, "Why are you naked!" and i quickly tried to come up with an answer, but all i could get out was, "Feels good man."

I got it by trading two guitars. The other guy got the better end of the deal imo, but I had too many guitars and needed to downsize.

Will do.


And I think it's worth mentioning that although these tend to be tricky to photograph, in real life they look incredibly nice. Ibanez could finish their guitars to really make the maple tops stand out, but instead they finsih them so that they literally look like gems. A PRS may look like it's dipped in glass, but a J custom looks like it's a giant precious stone. Once I opened the case I knew why the color is called 'Red Spinel.'

Beautiful. That's one of my favorite J Customs that I've seen

Give me that exact look, minus EMG's, plus 7 string and I'd be saving up immediately. I also have a weird love for those vine inlays.. gorgeous

Congrats on the buy.Welcome to the Club. J Customs are unlike any other ibanez's that are sold. Very fine attention to detail with great aesthetics. The whole guitar feels differently than others similar to it

That is one extremely attractive guitar. HNGD!!!

Thanks. Photography is actually my main focus and music is a side thing to keep me from overworking myself and going crazy.

Way to (attempt to and fail a) hijack.

Plus the J-Custom vine is way cooler.
Beautiful guitar, I love the subtle figuring on that top.
#32
This is a truly amazing, gorgeous guitar. Even better considering I love red so much. I looked it up though, and I can't find any shopping sites for it. Any idea what it might be worth? Just curious, what I'll have to aspire to.

If you're on Ebay, check out meestursparkle. He has a fair few J-Customs on his store at any one time.

Thats very sexy, although the figuring on the top is extremely poor for my tastes.


Would you mind taking a close up pic of the fret ends with the binding? That would be awesome

You can never have too many guitars. But anyways, HNGD!
Obviously Fassa.
