    Well, I've always thought my first foray in to the Ibanez guitar world (I do already have, and love, a BTB bass) would be with an RGD. With this color (and price) it looks like I'm gonna have to find one to try out.
    I'm not real keen on pulling the trigger sight-unseen on an IronLabel without a good return policy.....

    And of course, I would rather have the pearl white one, but not for the price difference.

    I haven't really been able to try it.I took it out the box twice,but that's it.It's still in the box it got mailed in.My Eleven Rack is enough for what I'm doing for the time being,and I have way too many things going on to even focus on taking the time to dial in some tones.

    I had a Bones on order for the last year. When I put down the deposit it was a going to be a three month build time. After my last inquiry on status, Mike offered me a refund of my deposit and I took it. I know they've had alot of growth this year with the pedals.

    I think I'm going to get the PoweredByOmega Obsidian 50w once released instead of the Meshuggah amp.

    Yeah I'm a bit hesitant when they can't hit their date to get information up about the amp... and I really hate preorders to begin with.

    Dunno how I never heard of this company. Damn that's one beastly-sounding amp.

    If you're referring to the Omega thing, supposedly Kyle at KSR helped out with it, so you can expect it to be pretty awesome.

    I have heard that Kyle helped with the amps also but don't remember where. I may ask them next time I talk to them. I have a poweredbyomega 4x12 paired with my Rhodes Gemini that sounds beastly. Also have one of there 1x12s for the bedroom rig and they just finished building a 2x12 for me that was to be for the Fortin Bones that I mentioned above that fell through.

    Oh really? I was just looking at their ported 1x12s -- can I ask what kind of price range that's in? I guess vs. the mesa thiele is around $400.

    It was around $450 for my 1x12. It's not the ported version but I had an upgraded colored grill. They have good to deal with, seem to know a lot about speaker & cab designed and have been very helpful with any questions I had

    No kidding, just listened to the clips on their website. That sounds awesome. I guess it better for the price.

    That is probably the best description I have ever read for a speaker. Any clips online anywhere? Can't seem to find.

    I have always wanted a Fortin and almost bought one several years back. I contacted Mike and asked him what he had that was tight and articulate in his arsenal, similar to a Fryette, and he told me just to buy that instead lol. I was kind of turned off. Maybe he was trying to just be honest (there's no tone in text), but it came across as kind of an F you lol.

    He could've just meant, "If you really want a Fryette, just get a Fryette."

    Someone on rig-talk just posted a new KSR amp, modded Marshall style. Might be another option if the Fortin situation stays sketchy.
