    Crappy winter/rainy day pics first:

    You're thinking: "Wow, he sure does have the worst camera skills ever".

    Case.jpg Best case ever. Pissed Ibanez Premiums no longer will come with these.

    So, crappy pics aside, this guitar is pretty slick. I've been playing it nonstop the last few days and I've made some observations.

    1) Sounds great, don't know if it's the whole tonewood thing, or the pup's being the PAFs, but I like it a lot.
    2) The 11 piece neck is awesome. Looks cool, feels good. I'm somewhat of a tonewood believer, so I'll say sounds good too :lol:
    3) My fretboard is crazy figured. Like, better than the top on this thing, or any of my other figured guitars I've had.
    4) Locking tuners are cool, and I like the ZPS3. First guitar with the zero point, so far I like it, but I'm not a Vai kind of guy with my trem either. The luminlays are cool. I'm not playing live, so they only really help if the sun goes down and I'm too lazy to turn on the lights. But still cool.
    5) Stainless frets feel good. Bends are really smooth. However, and this is probably the only con to this thing I've found. On the treble side, the 4th fret is pretty sharp. The 7th, 14th, and 23rd are somewhat sharp, not enough to bother me while playing. And there's also a few somewhat sharp fret ends on the bass side, but I don't normally feel around up there, so it doesn't bug me much.

    All in all, crazy happy with the purchase. Bought it mint for more than 33% off original price. So I'm pretty stoked. All it's missing is a middle single coil, and it'd rival my UV for play time. If all Premiums I play are this good, I'll have a hard time to justify not buying them.

    Little quick video of me playing it:


    Thanks for looking/reading/watching!

    These are awesome, Ibanez really specced these and their six string brothers out to the max. Congrats!

    Congrats! I have one, and it's exceptional in build. Sorry about the sharp frets.

    God I want one of these. Why did Ibanez stop with this one? It was just such a nice model!

    Those are awesome guitars. You can get the used indo AZ's and these special edition 6's for $800, I wonder which is the better buy?
