    NGD!!! Just recevied my Ibanez RG1527z!! sorry for the copy and paste from another forum.

    It is made in a made in Japan 7 string with a bolt on 5 piece maple and wenge neck

    Mother of pearl inlay for the logo and fret markers [​IMG]

    silky smooth frets

    A fancy lead plug that really locks on
    [​IMG]

    The previous owner now (and has been for awhile) makes his own guitars and has set this up really nicely! The action is nice and low with very little fret buzz (none unless played hard) and aftermarket pickps which sound great! (a SH-2 and a SH-10 in the bridge) The wiring job looks very tidy.

    It also look like aftermarket strap buttons? but could just be that they are alot bigger than my other ibby

    Also comes with a quirky Japanese manual :)

    A amazing fitted case

    With a ibanez multi tools, not sure if you can buy these serperatly but if you can every guitar owner should have one! Even has a ruler in it to measure fret height! He also included 2 sets of Ernie Ball strings to keep me going!
    [​IMG]

    All and all couldn't be happier! It is a amazing guitar and blows my poor 6 string out of the water in every aspect! (Ibanez RG321EX) the tone improvement from the after market pickups is great!

    TLDR; (Just take me to the pics!)

    Pulled mine out for some photos on the weekend:

    1. Ibanez G200 - my girls guitar
    2. Saelton ? - my first guitar, circa ~1993 still gets a bash from time to time
    3. Gibson ES335 Dot - circa 2008
    4. Fender Stratocaster - US, 1991
    5. Jackson PS2 - <1995, good for silly tunings
    6. Ibanez RD300 - the workhorse. This is gigged frequently, and is a rock. It pays for these other mooches.

    Does a great job. It's got knobs and switches to customize it. Wah Range/Volume/Fine Tune, etc. Very thin up the top on full range.

    Explanation -

    This line is making fun of your accoustic guitars... grandpas guitars is the term given to such things...

    This line is suggesting that your dot and strat are awesome...

    This line is suggesting that your bass is better than awesome...

    Is that cleary-er?!?
    (that was some bad wordplay based on your username)
