Love the guitar, but the frets need to be filed down! Bad job on that, gonna take it to a shop as soon as possible. Love the guitar though.
Finally! Finally! Finally! I can say that I own a Wizard 1 neck...This guitar is nothing short of sick. A faithful reissue of the '87 classic RG. I missed out on the 550 reissues, and was pretty bummed...but no longer. The neck is the thinest, flatest neck I have every played on. It is absolutely built for shredding, espically sweep picking. I got the Lazer blue. The quality is through and through. The pickups are amazing. Similar to a Dimarzio PAF Pro but with a higher output. And add to the fact that they only made 500 (250 in each color) of these bad boys available to the US, makes it all the sweeter...Totaly worth the money. Basically a jem without out all the pretty inlays and monkey grip (which I also have...hehe).
It's great to see that Ibanez in bringing back the guitar's that started it all. Even if it's a limited run. I have owned many Ibanez's from RG's, S-series, Vai's, to Satriani's and I would put this guitar in the same catagory as the prestige models. I also own the original RG770DX from 92' and this guitar is exact to the original. The 87' wizard nect is possibly the best neck Ibanez has even made in my opion at 17mm and it's using the original Edge tremlo which can't be beat. The Edge Zero is good but the Edge is what started it all. This guitar is mainly set up for 80's metal and shred but is versitle when coil tapping and messing with the tone knob to achieve even jazz tones. Pick-ups are clear and responsive as they should be made by DiMarzio. Neck is flat and fast, great for metal and shredding. This guitar is a little pricey but it is a great guitar and they are only producing 200 red and 200 blue and that's it. Get them while they are still available. Can't go wrong with this one.
I have been playing guitar for many years now. Since I was 14 years old. I have owned Les Pauls and Ibanez's. It wasn't until I started learning to fix and repair guitars (working on a tech bench) that I began to see the quality and versitility of the Ibanez RG guitars. I had a friend who owned an original RG770DX in Laser Blue. It was a smoking mad guitar with amazing stock pickups. My only critisizm of Ibanez is that nothing compares to the guitars they make in Japan. They are the original and they are the best. I've played many korean, indonesian, Ibanez RG's and the quality isn't there. Spend the money and buy a Japanese Ibanez RG. You won't be disappointed! Two words for Ibanez - start making more maple neck fretboards again, and return to the Ibanez Edge & Lo-Pro Edge trems. They were by far the best tonally!
