    NGD! It's certainly been a while. I'll skip the small talk but when the new XL series was announced I knew that I would be getting one.

    Here she is with my old faithful 1077. The main difference (other than the absence of a middle pickup and now a matching headstock) is the neck certainly feels bigger than the older model.

    Also what looks like marks on the headstock was just crap from the case. The guitar came out covered in it

    Nice... could you elaborate on that neck difference, please? What do you mean with "it feels bigger"?

    Just thicker than the 1077, which has a very thin neck. I think I like it more actually, it reminds me more of the RG927 that I used to own

    Happy NGD, 2019 Ibanez is killing it!

    Are these cases only for that model or replacing the red interior moulded cases?

    Is it actually the same blue as the 1077XL? Almost looks like it. From the first photos I thought it would be a different blue.

    I purchased an identical case from a friend for my 1077,who got his with a RG852 so I guess its being used for their 27' scale instruments.

    No it's darker, almost with a purple hue.

    These are the newest version of the "extended" cases that have shipped with just about all MIJ 27" scale and 8-strings since 2007, with the exception of the RGDs which had the blue lined UV1000C cases for awhile.

    Thanks for the reply! They look like really nice cases. I had an RGD a few years ago but it came with the regular red interior molded case.

    Yeah, for some reason the RGDs never got these, even though they work in them. Just blue lined UV1000Cs for a year or two and then the standard TJC cases.

    The original RGXLs got UV1000Cs too, so it's cool they went for the "upgrade" to the extended case.

    wow, that looks nice. the fretboard looks way nicer than on the ibanez stock photo. Can you upload a close up of the fretboards of the 1077 and the 2027?
