I've been playing my Ibanez RG331M this entire week. I am re-visiting my effects collection (the reason you see me letting some go for bargain prices) & this is the best guitar for the job. It being an Ibanez is half the reason, the other being the DiMarzios in there. You would've read in my accounts here that I'm not too keen with DiMarzios but these are the pickups to be testing effects with. Personally, I can hear them withstanding severe signal processing & still manifesting some tasty tones at the end of the chain. I could have Duncanized it like the rest but I'm not averse to the stuff not on my preference list. They have their applications & I'm one to acknowledge this.
