    It's just a Steinberger, isn't it? Ebay and superglue.

    Well it's aliexpress, so I'm not really sure what they do. Whether they're using stock images of real guitars or building crap versions themselves -- I'm only aware of the reputation the resulting instruments have. But I haven't been able to find actual Steinbergers with the flame tops / double necks, etc.

    Will probably go for the later but damn the RG1027 must be one of ibanez best looking guitars ever.

    ... or you could mod into "THE ONE", one that is closer... that's how people do it, they go custom or get the closest possible and mod it.

    Just tell her next time you traded this new one for an old one. Then keep the old one in hiding like witness protection, and when she forgets, slowly start using it again and see if she notices. That or just flat out be like, "Look, I bought another guitar. Yeah yeah, 2 this month, I know, but this one looks pretty sweet."

    My wife has slowly come to understand I must buy a guitar once in a while. She's totally cool with it, as long as I buy what I can afford.






    ... which is the hard part. :ugh:
