yeah, yeah, yeah. Someone else already pointed that out to me.

If some uses a female user name I'll refer to that person as female. Not my issue.

She's doing well Mike the last time I spoke to him, As fierce a gear hound as ever, I'm sure that She occasionally reads up on some threads despite not actively posting anymore :tu: A really awesome dude and gentleman

Anyway the latest addition to my descent in to madness is...

I won't rattle on with all the specs as they can be found here:
http://www.ibanez.co.jp/products/eg_pag ... color=CL01

It plays absolutely fantastic and sounds fantastic, I was expecting the additional 2.4" of fretboard to take some getting used to but quite honestly it took about half an hour and I simply don't notice it when switching between the three guitars I have which have the traditional 27" baritone scale-length. The neck is as anyone familiar with Ibanez's wizard series profiles knows a real treat to navigate. It is obviously wider than I'm used to but again it took little time to get used to and I can only say Ibby have done a fine job. The single Lundgren model P8 humbucker at the bridge sounds extremely good from crystal clean with the tone and volume backed off to full on high-gain savagery with everything set flat out. It is one of only very few humbuckers I have tried/am aware of which is capable of such versatility. It isn't ridiculous weight wise which is a big plus point also, I was expecting it to be a total back snapper if I'm honest, It feels solid and robust in every aspect and can easily be made to sound as brutal and intimidating as it looks yet as mentioned is capable of some deceptively deep, rich clean sounds (you know the sort that don't require any effects to work well which is a typical problem with most heavy/extreme metal orientated guitars I am used to and indeed own a number of). I honestly could see/hear modern jazz players making fantastic use of the M80M and I wouldn't say that lightly.
What have I done to it or had to do it out of the box? Well I haven't done anything yet apart from tune it, The only thing I plan to do is drop a heavier gauge string on the lowest position as the factory fitted set are fine (D'Addario EXLs, Which I use anyway along with DR strings sometimes) but the lowest string for my particular preference needs more tension than the .65 offers. So once I have put a .70 or just above on it, It'll be champion

What does it sound like? Well when I get to changing the lowest string and laying some ideas down, I will gladly post some of my own shit (for better or worse)

Gotta catch up on some pages of this thread and some really good looking eye candy to gaup at which is exactly what I'm going to do, Best to everyone as always :D

i don't play too much and i'm not very good at all (mainly into blues and rock as far as guitar goes), but was able to pick up my dream guitar last year. a 1966 Hagstrom III, it's got a handful of blemishes but really is in fantastic shape for being almost fifty years old.

absolutely love it.

Yeah, the early-mid '70s are confusing as far as Gibson serial numbers go. Have you seen this?

The most brilliant sounding strings I've used are the Blue Steels, followed by Elixirs. Maybe try those?
