First ever NGD on UG (though i'm sure more will follow)!

Picked this sucker up for $399 on Friday. It's a used Ibanez SZ Prestige, although the shop just called it "prestige" so I'm not positive on the exact SZ type. According to the serial # its a 04/05 model.

Pics! (Hopefully i resized these small enough)






And a Family pic:


Plays real nice!

That is one snazzy guitar you've got there mate. Looks to me like you got a good deal on it.

C'mon, man. We're just kidding. We all know that drummers are important.

After all, without drummers, who would bag my groceries?

Ok, So I've done some research, and from what i can tell it is a 2005 SZ2020FM in TKF (the transparent black finish). 2005 Is supposedly the first year they made SZ prestiges, And since my serial is W450028 I bascially scored the 28th ever SZ presitge made (if i decoded the serial right... Probably not ). Very nice!

Love the bridge. HNGD



agreed. Most of the hardtail Ibanez' have those shitty cheap fixed bridges, but that thing looks like a tank.

Mind you they are starting to change their ways these days.

Someone has def. tinkered with this, btw, as i just opened up the back cavity to investigate the tone know cutting out. It's shielded, the pots all say "gibson" on them and it has a "Mojo Dijon" 22nF on it. Next time i take the strings off, I'll have to investigate the pickups, cause they arent stock either. They look like maybe dimarzios?
