Time to get another Multiple-Guitar Stand ;-)
Found this 2009 Ibanez RGT42MDX last week in Yahoo Auctions here in Japan and snagged it for a whopping 180€.
Turned out I got an unplayed totally MINT Neck-Through RG with Mahogany body wings and a 5-piece maple/walnut neck with maple fretboard. It even had the original factory strings still on.
First impression: this has some serious oomph for a double locking 25.5" with the right amount of shimmer/sparkle courtesy of the maple fretboard.
Factory INF 1 and 2 pups positively surprised me but will get replaced by a DiMarzio Evolution bridge and Humbucker from Hell neck I still have in the parts drawer.
Trem is an Edge 3 that generally gets mixed reviews...I have it on another Ibby and once set up properly it`s a rock solid trem (will add an FU-Tone Brass Block though).
Fret 2 is a tiny bit high on the bass side and fret 13 a tiny bit on the treble side. I´ll drop it off at my luthier next week and invest another 80€ in a complete fret dress.
These guitars retailed for 699 so I guess a got a sweet deal.
