Been a while since I've had a NGD! Got this off evil bay for a steal the other day, quite smitten with the finish but it's killer to photograph, pics below. I know I probably should have waited for the S5570QDPB to come out with the low pro edge but I hate trems anyway and have already blocked this one off. Dropped a set of Blackhawks in her and so far I dig them. I've had to pull all of my setting back after using Aftermaths for so long that it was nice to be able to just plug in and play. The finish is one of my favorite that Ibanez has put out, absolutely love it. I won't bore you with the standard NGD flowery adjectives. It plays like it should for a guitar in it's price range and the Blackhawks, especially the neck (which I found surprising) are refreshing after the onslaught that are Aftermaths, really nice cleans on the neck.
