Cool, pups can be a good investment, not sure if they are for an S though. I put the same pups in my $700 Jackson, I really like the singles.
So the pups cost almost as much as the guitar, add the FR and that's a pretty expensive S. Probably more than what I paid for my slightly used Prestige.

I don't think you can go wrong with a Black guitar, white ones are almost as good but black ones are better, white ones just don't sound quite as good.

MY perfect guitar?

'59 LP with some original pickups or some alnico wound ones.

That's it.

I don't know how long you've been playing but you'll soon come to the realization that your gear should be taken to the next level. Eventually you'll also realize you can never stop taking gear to the next level. Check out the Gear Overhaul thread haha and you'll see!

good for you.

I don't know why some of you are having a hard time accepting that someone's found a cheap guitar that they like better than any other guitars they've tried.

Nothing wrong with that. It's just like how i find my les paul studio faded better than any of the higher end gibson LPs (except for the R8/R9 etc). I know it's not the best guitar in the world, far from it, but i haven't found another one that i've liked as much under the £4500 price margin.

Hmm? I think i've seen a "team J-craft" custom ibanez S series with a floyd. Perhaps they made the inner part of the body thicker than usual for that particular model though? Unless i'm thinking of another model? The S series is the one where the body is fully contoured to the point where it gets very slim around the edges isn't it?

Well it's just that typically when a 16 year old says that he has yet to find a guitar that is better than something that has been modified in that price range it's just because he hasn't been able to really play something extraordinary. Not to mention at any age guitarist are constantly redefining what they once thought was the best.

I felt the same way about my Epiphone ; it's a Les Paul Std. Desert Burst. I threw some SD Distortion in them and it made that thing sound amazing. I thought I'd never find something that sounded like that. I've played countless Gibson Traditional Std and Std that completely kill it. Not to mention some vintage gear and the RI's. It's not that I don't think he doesn't love his guitar it's just a bit over-the-top...

On a serious note, perhaps you should've posted this thread in the Customizing section. To say you've yet to find a better guitar is a bit of a bold statement.
I'm glad you love your new improved guitar, but next time perhaps think before you post statements like that.

@ Blompcube, I see your getting a red guitar, NICE! LOL

yeah, red guitars have faster necks, but they don't sound quite like black ones

My simple opinion is that the ibanez I have customized is not only my favorite but in MY OPINION the best i have played SO FAR (i would agree to the fact that i have sampled my fair share of guitars) and not only is it MY favorite so far im also very proud of the fact that its a guitar by ME.

and by the way LMAO the color of the guitar has NOTHING to do with how it plays unless you are reffering to if the neck is painted or not.

TS, please maintain your enthusiasm! The world is too dark and cynical.
