I actually got this one about a eeek ago but didn't have the time to make an NGD post for it. I bought it as somewhat of a b-stock or floor model and costed about 600 USD (a bit less I think. The problem is that the phenolic fretboard actually turned yellow in some parts due to being exposed to the environment (my guess is that they had a piece of paper with the price covering the middle part of the fretboard and therefore preventing ONLY THAT PART from getting yellow), kinda defeats the purpose of having an all-white guitar I guess. But well, here's my review (I'm kinda new to this so take this as a first attempt). First here are the photos: The guitar itself is pretty heavy, I'm kinda used to light guitars, i would say it's pretty much the same weight as my EC401 (both are mahogany so I'm guessing that's the reason). It's not super resonant, I don't know how many pieces is the body but I'm guessing it's more than 2. I think Ikebe Gakki gave this a really good setup before shipping it as it was perfect out of the box. Frets are pretty even, the nut has to be one of the best cut nuts I've seen on this range of guitars, relief is pretty spot on. The knobs are OK, I don't usually care a lot of their shape or anything, so far they have been just OK. I guess everybody knows how EMGs sound, I don't even know the exact model on these ones! But they do the job so I'm fine with them. The tuners seem to have tool marks, I'm not even sure why. Also, tuning stability is good, given that right now Japan is pretty dang humid, but as soon as I make some mildly extreme bends the thing goes out of tune, I don't know if it could be related with the nut or something. Neck profile on this one caught my attention immediately. I think it's the slim taper D, however I believe I used to have a SG G400 with the same profile and didn't feel as good to me. However this is kind of spoiled due to the gloss finish on the neck. I'm used to play with satin necks by then again, I'll probably never play this guitar live so I can live with it. Upper fret access is good, not the best but at least is better than my EC401. The fretboard is really smooth, but that's not really useful as I almost never touch it when playing. But it's a nice detail, smoother than my maples (I'm a maple guy). Aesthetically it's a very pleasing guitar without doubt, even with the yellows stained fretboard (which, by the way, if any fellow member knows how to whiten I'd be grateful for). It plays really good for a medium ish end guitar (lets face it, having Matt Heafys name is what makes this thing more expensive than an average Eppy LP). I'm pleased with my acquisition as a kind of a rarity, maybe because I grew up hating myself for not having enough money to buy a Buckethead signature, but I kinda prefer this one now. Veredict: if you plan on playing live, maybe this guitar is not the best, super heavy and glossy it will be hard to tame. Unless you are in a trivium cover band I guess. However, if you are a bedroom player or you just want to have a white guitar, it's a good deal if you find one used or B stocked, I wouldn't pay 999 for it though. Also, sorry for the abuse of parentheses (I guess?) EDIT: I don't know if the pictures are showing, anyone care tohelp?
