    Damn... gasing Ibanez's again. My opinion after owning about 10-15 RG's, RGD's etc. is that generally they kind of sound boring and thin, but damn their necks are just a breeze to shred on. I just don't know if that Solar neck is just not my thing, it's not too thick but it's not the most comfortable neck I've played especially in the upper register where it gets even thicker. Why is it that I always end up buying more Ibanez's? :ugh:

    Maybe try one of the new 5000 series Ibanez with mahagony body then. They probably sound a bit different than your average basswood RG.

    Really on the expensive side for me right now, but BKP's did sound really gnarly judging by couple of youtube demos. Not a believer of noticeable differences in different wood species either, for me they all just sound like Ibanez should sound; kind of snappy and certain kind of midrange blooming out. There is one guy at neighbor city who wants to trade his RG3521 Prestige to a Solar, so I'll maybe see how that goes.

    I've been on the hunt for these for a while and now this is so close to my grasp it's sickening. With Free The Tone's Future Factory being released next month, getting it would be perfunctory. But I still want it. :lol:

    I had these 2 with me for a while. They belong to a friend and I was to sell them, therefore the reason for making this video, which happened after a while...

    $400, I wouldn't sweat $30 in parts too hard for an ESP. Then again, in no position for any of it. Would if I could, will probably regret this pretty immediately.

    Actually saw that one before, it’s a 1995 model I believe. Might be an easy project to get it into a solid player. $250 of that is in the pickups, so it’s pretty damn cheap. Only issues I’d be concerned with are is the replacement fret work shit and was the crack repaired correctly.

    all the talk about hot rodded marshalls really has me GASing for a ceriatone chupacabra or a splawn (not sure if I should look into the quick rod or the nitro) or another peters :lol:. Still planning on grabbing a ksr orthos or revv 100p at some point first though.

    ESP Prototype Roasted Maple Snapper-AL/RM

    Goes really well with red in my opinion.

    I absolutely love my Gibson, but I can't stop GASing for a straight up Les Paul w/o like the Floyd or body contours. Might as well start a thread dedicated to my Gibson GAS.
