An ooold HR Giger Ibanez, the RGTHRG1, not to be confused with the more recent RGHRG1.

Now, there's a story behind this. I was trying to sell my Ibanez S470DX on the interweb, I got an offer for a Crimson swirl Jackson RR3, which I though was a good idea, I called the guy over and we made the trade. Soon after he left, I plugged in the Jackson. I hated it.

I couldn't play that guitar at all, sitting or standing. It all felt so foreign, I tried to get use to it, but I just couldn't at all. Not to mention it sounded like balls. I was kind of disappointed in myself for letting that happen, so I put it up for sale.

A couple weeks later I got an email saying someone wanted to trade the RG for this Jackson, to skip ahead, he came over we made the trade and we're both very happy with the new guitars. Here's some pic-age.









Review: I really like this old Giger guitar, it was part of a limited production and it's the first one I've seen of its kind. Acoustically, It plays well. It's got 9's on it now from the previous guy, I'll switch them to 10's eventually. It sounds great plugged in, which I didn't expect from the inf 1 and 2 pickups (because of previous experience i had with those pickups in the S470) They sounds really great in this guitar, handle distortion well and are just great stock pickups (Surprising, for Ibanez)

The trem handles...alright. It's got the Edge Pro II, it's basically an edge III equivalent, if not greater. It's handled tuning stability and abuse pretty well so far, but I am still skeptical of it. It's got a very fast neck! Holy crap, it plays well. 24 frets, 25.5" scale. It's actually the first neck-through Ibanez I've ever seen and hell, do I love it!

Very durable guitar, has no dents or dings considering how long the other guy had it and how I've treated it so far. It also came with its custom hardshell case from Ibanez and it fits like a glove. All in all, pretty good guitar, but it will never replace my Schecter

Sweeeeeeeeet. I like.
Marshall amplifiers are the truest purveyors of rock and roll known to man.

"And give a man an amplifier and a synthesizer, and he doesn't become whoever, you know. He doesn't become us."

Holy crap, check this out!

Yeah, first time I saw one of these too, was a very limited run. Can't believe I traded my $600 Ibanez S all the way up to a $1000 Giger series, plus its $250 case

Well the EDGE Pro II is alright, considering it's a licensed ibanez trem.

Wel, it was $1000 new, he has the reciept for it and with the case $1250. I check on eBay after I got this and I've seen them go for half that price, easily. But I don't mind. It's a pretty good guitar.
