Always loved the looks of this model, but since they weren't sold in North America, I thought I'd never be able to own one. So it got added to my bucket list. Found one in great shape and couldn't stop myself from buying it. Why was I so horny to own one? It's those magical letters after the 5470. The burled walnut red viking top is just jaw droppingly gorgeous.

It plays like a dream, but the neck doesn't feel as wide as my other Prestige necks. So it did take a bit of time to get used to that.

I really liked the stock pickups while in E standard, but I've beefed up the strings and have gone to D. And the Hot Grinder in the bridge just loses too much definition in the low end. I do find that notes about the 12th-14th fret don't have a great deal of sustain, but I'm a metal player. So lots of gain fixes that

And yes, this thread is worthless without pics, so here are a few. Haven't had any nice weather or mowed lawn to do anything spectacular. But the burled walnut red viking finish IS spectacular. Also nice that is has a matching finish for the headstock.

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.

Presumably because the CCF (Combined Corksniffing Forces) of MLP and Gibson forums would rise up against them, plunging the land into war.

Not a big Ibanez fan but that's a good looking guitar with nice lines to it. Congratulations.

Sexy guitar. HNGD!

I never did like the 5 way switch plate though. It seems weird to me.
