    Just got a brand spankin new Ibanez Prestige RG652AHM. Yes!!!!
    I've been missing a guitar that "brings it"....exciting to look at and exciting to play. Something different though. An ash body, bound, bound neck, Birdseye maple board....this color...the edge trem.....awesome!!!! 5 way switch with HH is very cool. Absolute fantastic quality, nice Dimarzios, Gotoh tuners, great wiring and electronics!!! Beautiful case. I recommend!!!

    I really like that bound top and natural wood back. The RG's are a guilty pleasure of mine, although I prefer a hardtail to a floyd. Looks like a rock machine to me. The Prestige models are so nice.

    Hey thanks!!! I like it too!! Haha...
    I just wanted to break my own mold and get something totally different, I hate Floyd style bridges to but felt I needed one. I will probably get another RG with a solid color and basswood body next, hard tail bridge, rosewood board, hsh.

    I actually have quite a few Ibanez guitars. My first was an RG550 that I bought in 1995 and still have. Definitely great guitars! :thumb:

    Nice. I like the contrast of the top to the natural back. Enjoy!

    Nice, same wiring as I have on my SA120. (Which I find amazing, the same wiring as a guitar costing 15 times as much,,,, gotta love Ibby!)
    I always loved Ibanez, and have 16 of them now.
