Review. this is a stellar guitar in all aspects, simply amazing. the neck will take some getting used to for me, since i am used to gibby's and wolfgangs, but this carve is defintely more tolerable than others i have played from ibanez. the only thing that i haven't really had a fair shot at messing around with is the trem, since it was MIA. he will get me a new one and knocked a ffew more bucks off of it.

anyways, pickup wise, it sounds great, i am glad it has actual dimarzios and not those (IMO) crappy dimarzio/ibz pickups. the neck is nice and smooth and creamy, the bridge has a nice bite to it, and it gets a good pissed off sound.

the reason i bought the guitar was because i am expoling other genres (atm shred type stuff even though i am not good at it yet), it had a full floating trem (wolfgang is dive only) and 24 frets. i had watched it go down in price over the last month $1200,$1000, until it was at $950, my good man knocked a few hundred off of that, and it was just too good of a deal to pass up.

the quality is amazing, inlay work beauitiful, really everything is perfect, tightest neck pocket i think i have ever seen. its just a killer guitar.

Word... I love my Prestige and you're right about the neck pocket... tightest fit ever... that thing is sick and even though I got a great deal on my own, boy am I jealous of you snagging that for 700. That's unreal for a Prestige... let alone a new one. I got my S new for 900 and thought I was special haha but damn... nice find! Thing's gorgeous dude and the maple neck is pure sex...

thanks. it was actually under $700 after tax. i have already owned 50+ different guitars, and having it just for these past 8 or so hours i know its going to be a keeper.

i really like the maple neck and fretboard as well, i was worried about it being a little on the bright sidee once i got it home and put it through the Splawns, but she sounds amazing.

now i will need another... lol. i have to have two of everything... hahaha

i would have bet you would have been the one to get it. wouldn't have suprised me one bit.

you seem to be one of the more knowledgable ibby players i run accross here on a regular basis.

how are those trems? they seem pretty solid, but how are the knife edges and tuning ability and the like? i am not one to hammer or abuse anything, so should the trem hold up?

Yeah, they're a very solid trem. They love them so much at Ibanez that they're going Edge Zero on everything made in Japan, except the JS and JEM's.
It'll stand up to a lot of abuse, so if you don't use it heaps it should stay in tune perfectly.

Taking the ZPS bar out of the trem cavity will make it feel more like a traditional Floyd, its meant to make the trem return better but it doesn't really do a heap, and it makes the trem feel stiffer. If you find its a bit too stiff, take it out.

i am glad that its got a good trem on it. i liked the response that i felt from it, but then again i haven't played with a full floating trem in three or four years.

what do you think of the red velvet in the middle position? i can't imagine using it for anything other than cleans, even at position two and four.

thanks in advance for being patient with these questions, because this guitar is quite different than what i normally play.

i have a couple of questions. with the edge zero, what exactly does the +/- adjustment do? i am assuming that it is to make the trem flush with deviations of settings?

for example i know with floyds you want the plate flush to the body, the 3550MZ is at a slight angle, and the salesman said (he is a good guy, so if it wasn't correct i am positive it was with the best of intentions), that it needs to be the thickness of a pick off of the back of the trem.

does that sound legit?
