    Default Unexpected ngd

    Well, was a gc this morning visiting a friend of mine and saw this beast. Ive been eyeballing these for years but could never get over that $4500 tag. Well, a deal and a half came up and we worked out a trade and she came home! It really is an amazing guitar. I can honestly say though, throughout all the years Ive been playing I would have never thought I'd buy an Ibanez lol. Played, sounded, felt and smoked the HELL out of my EVH so away it went. Brand spanking new! Its been a while since Ive bought an actual new guitar. Have another nod incoming too.
    Whats interesting is its loaded with a dimarzio tone zone and air norton which is pretty much the ebmm axis pups so it sounds close to an axis but with more girth behind it. Also means Ive been able to coax out a fairly close evh tone.

    Yes those pickups are exactly as you stated. Pretty much the same. My main guitar is a USA Wolfgang Stealth. If I still played out I'd go back to Ibanez. For some reason I play better on them. I've still got my original guitar. A 1987 RG550 in desert sun yellow. First time I played an RG3120 prestige model I said if I was an endorsed artist, this would be my signature guitar. Same pickups in that too minus the middle single coil. It's a great combo. They are in the new RG655 too, which I plan on buying in 2015. No new gear for a bit.

    Beautiful guitar! Congrats!!

    That July 4th sale at the GC killed me. I got a new amber EBMM Axis Tribute for $600 less than my pink one cost. I had to take it home. Had to do it. I used it for the whole gig this past Fri. and it ran like a top.

    From what Ive been told by more than a few people theres a reason behind the recent price slashes of ebmm, prs etc. Hence how I got this ridiculous high end guitar for a price so low I won't even bother putting it up lol.

    There's no shortage of rumors as to why they give stuff away like they do. I don't know how they make any money on that stuff. Selling new EVH Wolfs with case for $499, new Axis Tributes for $1259, etc. But that's how I like to buy my gear.

    No, those are two deals I got in October and last weekend, respectively. Just gotta be in the right place at the right time. Another GC here let a blue EBMM EVH in excellent shape go for $1000 about two mos. ago. It hung on the wall for three weeks and those were about the only three consecutive weeks I hadn't been in there for years.

    The EBMM price drop is still good until the end of the month but you have to call around to find them. As far as the EVH prices go, while I was buying this one I noticed the Natick Ma guitar center had some of the EVH Wolfgang specials in white priced down to $500
