Ibanez RG470MHZ

Was out guitar testing yesterday :-) Ibanez's RG470MHZ is now available at Swee Lee (BB) branch (pending price listing). Simply love the gloss-free finish. The guitar per se is a lively, bright-sounding unit, well-made as well.

We'd be quick to dismiss this guitar as bass-deficient but keep in mind the nature of its manifestation- the dual action locking whammy bridge + gloss-free body are crucial factors in accepting what it is capable of doing. If you are keen on the build & playability but put off by the tone (this happened to me)- the pickups have to go, unless you are a firm believer of the INF pickups.
