Well I was browing craigslist today and I saw a very nice BC Rich Ironbird up for trade, so I made an offer, and the guy didnt like the offer and I asked him if he had any neck-through guitars and he said he had this:









I present to you an Ibanez VBT-700, aka the V-Blade, with Dimarzio D-Activators and a Wizard II neck and this baby is damn nice.

The finish is sexy with the body and neck/headstock binding and the pickups absolutely scream, they sound much like active pickups but without the battery, and the associated hassles. The bridge is very hot, and the neck sounds great clean, and overall this pickup set will be there for a while (I might put a D-Activator X in the bridge in the future ).

The string-through-body design, combined with the neck-through and pickups, create phenomenal sustain, and it's just everything I hoped for.

Overall this guitar is going to be my main guitar for quite a while, and I cant see the need to replace it anytime soon, and Ill rate this guitar a 9.5/10 on overall features and quality.

It is pretty awesome, and yes, Budweiser is about the only decent beer :P

Also, let me add some pics of the back of the guitar

That guitar is sick... It's exactly what I would want out of a flying-v. I like how it has the wizard II neck with d-activators... not a very common combo.

Call me old fashioned but I prefer 'rock music' that has electric guitars.

The neck is to die for, also the pickups are incredibly clear and the palm mutes are powerful

Do you guys think it'd be worth it to change the bridge pickup to the dactivator x?

HNGD! That is one sexy Ibanez...

I prefer Yeungling though.
Then there's this band called Slice The Cake...

Bunch of faggots putting random riffs together and calling it "progressive" deathcore.
Stupid name.
Probably picked "for teh lulz"
