Hai there. So I woke up early to greet a new guitar inside my home. Let's get on with the pictures and we'll work out a review later on. It's what UG would want anyway!



Seems like some sort of Ibanez headstock, which would mean it's a...



Exactly. Now without further delay, let's post a whole array of pictures.

Review:

It's an Ibanez RG2020X. It's a Prestige MIJ. Manufactured in 2000, later replaced by the 2120X. What's so special about this? Well first of all, it uses the famous wizard neck although not as slim as the one in my RG550. It comes stock with V7/8 Pickups although the previous owner replaced them with a D-Sonic/Air Norton set. It has dual dot inlays in the 12 fret in a almost markless rosewood fretboard. Rather than using a japan quality basswood body, it's constructed with Mahogany wood while having a 1 piece neck with top design details on the back of the neck itself proving how beautiful and well thought out this series was. The color is a blueish-green top with natural binding throughout the body. It's quite hard to reflect it on pictures, but by eyesight it's simply beautiful.

Tone wise, it has 3 knobs. The usual master volume knob, the casual tone knob and a piezo tone knob. That's right, it has a piezo alongside the tremolo regarded as the "Double Edge Piezo System" from what I've read. I still have quite a bit of info to gather on the guitar itself, since it isn't that common it seems. It has dual jack inputs for the main guitar and the capability of using the piezo alone to a second amplifier without having to switch to a clean channel on the primary one. A nice feature for the professional guitarist I'd say. It boasts a switch that changes from the humbuckers to the Piezo mode, and a button to turn it on. The switch I just mentioned only works when the button is activated, otherwise it's quite an accessible killswitch. Besides that, it sounds pretty chunky on quite a rapid neck such as the 24fret wizard it possesses. Quite an axe for every genre out there, although shredding feels heavenly on that neck out of them all.

My 2 RGs.



My dog, tired after such a sonic-like shredfest from my part, approves of this.

If only your laptop was as high spec as that guitar....
Only kiddin'

Very nice, HNGD :]


That's an HP HDX laptop if im not mistaken. I've got one, and it's pretty high spec despite being about two years old. Super fast, Blu Ray drive, the works :-).

Happy NGD dude.
Custom guitars, vintage amps, boutique pedals. Blah, blah, blah.

Yeah, HP has been upping their quality as of lately and they're really making formidable machines for low-mid range prices without worrying to switch it for like 5 years minimum I'd say.

Thanks man. =)

Nice buy, man. But:
Errr...?


What I meant was that it was crafted as a whole, rather than many other Ibanezes which have a point near the 3rd fret in where the pattern of the wood changes meaning it was glued together to finish the neck. My RG550 for example, is like that. I probably phrased it horribly. I did that review in like 1 minute anyway.

You mean a scarf joint. If the neck is unlaminated then that's actually a pretty good way to increase strength. Anyways, yours is a three-piece so you have plenty of stability and strength.

I recommend them Prestiges too! And my dog scared you?! He's actually a lovely wimp which I prefer him to stay as that anyway. You know how much chicks I'd score if I take that to my college campus?!

Both I guess! At least the RG550 with the pinky/purple thing I've got going on in there.

That indeed is Initial D. I still play Arcade Stage v.3 near my campus. Irohazaka is my main stage in v.3 although it's really hard on Extreme Stage for PS3, which is a japanese port of v.4. Really addicting games really. However, I find myself playing Maximum Tune 2 as of lately, don't know if you're familiar with the game.

Man I'm jealous. A MIJ RG with a Piezo is pretty much my ideal guitar. Once I'm done school I'm going to have to start saving for some of this JDM jems.
