    I was an Avid jem collector for almost 10 years. Had 2 GMC Green Swirls, a 777VBK, 2 DSY's, A Blur Floral, A Root Beer, 2 Pinks, and a 87 LNG #167....

    I loved those guitars, but they are also the reason i have carpel...lol Those damn skinny necks !!!!

    DiMarzio IBZ pickups are real DiMarzios. From the DiMarzio FAQ:

    "The DiMarzio®/IBZ pickups in the Ibanez RG2120 and RG2570EX are specifically designed and manufactured by DiMarzio® for Ibanez, and they are not available separately. Like all DiMarzio® pickups, they are made in our New York factory."

    Personally, I'd rather get a JEM10th. It's so pretty.

    Yeah, they're nice for a lot of things. A friend of mine got one as a graduation gift and it plays pretty well... I just wish it was thicker, made of mahogany, had a larger neck, and was cleaner inside so that when I put new stuff in it for him I wouldn't be taping wires to everything around them just to get to the right lug.

    I found a guitar that outdoes the ironbird: the FastStar from the Neal Moser custom shop, designed and created by Dan Fastuca. I'll have it with the same specifications that I gave in the Red Bich/Ignitor thread. This will be my next guitar purchase. Now all I need is $2500. :cry:

    Still intend to get the "Steve Smyth Signature Ignitor" (haha) as my main 7-string.

    My dream guitar would actually be two, first a straight away MII ESP, I love this thing and have for years, just need to commit the 1500 bucks or so.

    Second would be finding the same guitar and setup that I played some years ago in Houston. I went to Rockin' Robin (they make the brand "Robin" guitars) I played on one of the employees guitars that he had setup special for him, that was the hands down, smoothest guitar I have ever laid my hands on. He did a custom set of string configuration and setup, I almost creamed myself playing this thing. That would be a find indeed...

    I've always wanted an original version of the kkv. The one from back in 86 with the reverse headstock.
