Technically not a NGD as I got it about a week and a half ago, but I've only just got round to uploading some pictures.

Its an Ibanez s1220tks Prestige, I made a thread about it a while ago (I evidently bought it ) It cost my £479 with a hard case, and some lem-oil and strings thrown in too.

It has a few dings in it, and a repair with resin on the bottom; but with it being made in 1992 you'd expect that. All the damage is purely aesthetic. It had a full fret dress and service just before I paid for it. It plays amazingly, the neck is hands down one of the nicest I've ever played.

I hope you enjoy!

Full shot:

Showing how thick the body isn't next to a tuner

The Duncans that replaced the stock pick ups, need to find out exactly what models they are when I restring (Yes that is a reflection of an Anchorman poster )

Whoever had that guitar before you was a complete moron. Didn't even consider getting F-spaced pickups and a trem-equipped guitar.

I really like the head of it.


thats what she said :P
sorry that's just impulse! haha

on topic, that's one good guitar....i kinda prefer RGs cuz they look sharper,but thats just me its all down to personal preference of course,enjoy!

I'm 99% sure its an Edge Lo-Pro? tremolo system, the body is solid mahogony so it still has a nice weight to it

I may swap out the SDs though as they are a bit shrill sounding for my liking, that being said my brother loves them (he is a much better player than me lol) and his sweeps come through them crystal clear, so I may leave them in and see if they grow on me.

Its an Original Edge, same as my S540! Looks really nice. If I were you I'd put Dimarzio's of some kind in there, but thats just my preference.
#13
thats the same guitar my old room mate has. sounds nice and plays great, but i find the neck a bit thin for my tastes (or more than a bit). its a great guitar and im sure youll be happy with it.

I was thinking of a set of Evolutions, thoughts people?

I'm not a fan of Evo's. Too harsh and trebly. What do you play?

Maybe not in that case

I play anything and everything, I have my Fernandes that'll do most genres fairly well, so I guess I could try pickups with a little less versatility, but I am completely open to ideas.

The only thing that goes is I normally like a warmer tone from my pickups

Nice guitar, but it's not from 1992. It's from 2002.

I love those wavy inlays that Ibanez used to put on the S. I don't like playing S' but I'd still grab one if it had a lo-pro Edge and those inlays.

I've got to say, I have never been a fan of Ibanezs in any way, but I walked into the shop and this literally blew me away. The price:playability ratio is win

Am I the only one that thinks it's weird that a Prestige has a bolt on neck? I mean, obviously some people like them because of the sheer number of bolt on neck guitars, but personally if I was going to get a $1000+ guitar, I'd at least want a neck through design on it.
#21
That's a Lo-pro Edge. I just bought a used S540 sol with a maple board and was removing the old strings when i realized the fine tuners got in the way of the wrench so I need to get a shorter allen wrench. The second pic really shows how thin these Sabers are. Mine gets to less than 1/2 inch along the edge!

No, I don't think it's weird that an S has a bolt on neck. Most of them do. Having it neck-through wouldn't give you the same sound anyways. You'd have a maple neck with a big maple tone block. I'd rather have my pickups resting in mahogany.

It's an original Edge. Good job on that one.

Well yeah, but I mean it would be just as easy to have a neck through with a mahogany neck instead of a maple one.

*shrug* I don't know. I guess I shouldn't say anything, considering that I'm more into the RG shape and feel than the S to begin with. I just thought I'd ask.

On second look yeah it is. I saw the angled fine tuners and automatically thought Lo-Pro. I thought they phased out the original Edge a while back. I guess not.

Mahogany neck wouldn't feel the same as maple

If the string lock screws are in front of the fine tuners then you're dealing with a lo-pro Edge. Otherwise, it's an original. Everything else looks different enough that there shouldn't be any confusion.

Yeah I know I confuse it sometimes with the difference between an OFR and a FR Pro which in addition to the fine tuner location, the angle of the fine tuners is different. Either way its a quality trem.

Wow nice! HNGD!


On a side note, I really prefer bolt on necks to set necks, but only if it has the AANJ, or at least some type of cutaway heel. My iceman has one, very comfortable.
#28
Yeah this is the first AANJ I've played, I'm really impressed with how comfortable it is and the access it allows.

A buddy of a buddy of mine as an S-series prestige. I try to play that thang whenver I am there.

Excellent guitar, HNGD!
