It has finally arrived












Bought it through Ibanezrules.com. The setup out of the box was PERFECT. The site owner himself does the setups, and he does it ridiculously well, better than any setups I’ve ever had. I advise anyone who wants to grab an Ibanez guitar to buy it through there.

The Edge-Zero bridge works great, it’s sturdy and when the nuts are locked in it stays solidly in tune. The thumbwheel spring adjustment in the back is very convenient, no more having to open it up and use screwdrivers. Neck is pretty thin and fast, just the way I like it.

Flamed maple top looks stunning, and has areas that disappear at certain angles and appear at others. The craftsmanship is top notch. The tree of life inlays are always great eyecandy!

As far as tone goes, this guitar is my all-around guitar. My 8420ZE has EMGs and will handle anything heavy. With the Air Norton/True Velvet/Tone Zone pickups, this one will cover everything else. In short, this is one of the best guitars I’ve ever played and I'm extremely happy with my purchase!

Here is a tone test video I hastily made, so please excuse the sloppy play: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xgT2ghxHgzA&hd=1

Nice, love me some J Custom winnage

The edge zero II on my guitar is better though

That thing is ugly as fvck.

HNGD though, even though you'll probably sell it soon since it's a pile of shit.

Either this was a troll post or you don't know anything about guitars. I'll go with the troll.

Beautiful thing, J-customs are pretty much the best ibanez guitars around...

Ibanez guitars: Serious ****ing business.

This is kind of coincidental, because I bitch about Ibanez guitars not fitting my hands well all the time, even though I absolutely love them as a company. I was just looking at some models on their site, and I'm considering just sucking it up and switching back over to them anyway.

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

That looks awesome. One question, though. Isn't is bad to string up the posts with the ball ends of the strings? I've seen it done on many guitars but I always see a comment on how bad it is, saying it'll basically tear up the post holes over time and start cutting into the strings. Is that just a myth? Personally, I think it adds a little color to the headstock, especially with D'Addario strings, lol. My favorite strings, by the way.

Nice ass guitar, though. That case is awesome, too. Nice score. =)

Beautiful, aside from the inlay. It's overbearing IMO.

A nice simple dotted fretboard or even a blank fretboard would make it jizz worthy.
