Ibanez RG reissue? 80s party 'choose life' T Shirt? Or are you talking a translucent finish over a very tasteful flame maple top?

Either colour is a winner!

i got the go ahead on the Ibanez RG2xxv 25th anniversary model. i want the Fluorescent pink. but i always liked yellow. these are equipped with the edge 2 and zero point setup. also my research has discovered it has the locking trem posts. awesome for floating bridge stability.
i am getting a break because i think here in eastern Canada the pink is moving too slow so there is a discount.

this isn't the premium model RG1xxv but rather the RG2xxv. still it has the goods and a friendlier price tag.

Mon i have to go to the store and see if i am in time for the deal they are offering, if so i am going pink.

OK, now to complete things, you need a black, button-down shirt, a bright yellow tie, and a fluorescent green jacket.

I'd suggest pink picks, too, but really you should only tap on that guitar.

Nice call Caev on the DiMazio strap smile

Pink, it's the classic look for that guitar.

I'd all but forgotten those straps, with the locking mechanism built-in, but it really goes with the guitar.

i am hoping nothing goes wrong, they are having a 3 month no interest no payments deal. this would allow me 90 days to build up some savings bond money to beat the payments. i am not entirely sure if the deal is for stuff already in stock or if i can order the RG2xxv. IF for some reason it is only for store stock i have a backup plan. which is the super sweet Ibanez S420 in weathered black.

either way it means a new guitar. of course knowing me i may also see something new that changes my mind.
but the plan is the Fluorescent pink RG2xxv. and of course a quick click strap is mandatory.

You must have a black-light shining on that guitar at all times, by the way...

I love those guitars, they are built to play right off the hanger! I just hate how thin the necks are and flat the radius is...

But that's me and my big hands.

Pink is the new sunburst!

well i am back from my trip to the candy store. they had no floor stock for the rg2xxv. i had also seen the s420 i previously pawed over 2 weeks ago admiring the round tones and full voice acoustically.

so decisions had to be made. i already knew how sweet the S series sounded and felt, and i was timid to order something sight unseen. bottom line i bought the Ibanez S420 with the ZR bridge and dual buckers in weathered black on mahogany.
all the RG series i tried with basswood were nice but there was more booty and body in the S series voice.

pics will come later after i get all this new years celebrating behind me.
