I bought 4 new guitars over the last 2-3 months, but I never got around to posting any NGD threads so....I'm going to post them now. My wife bought 2 of these guitars for me and in even more exciting news, she has twice asked me if I was playing a new guitar this week, when I was actually playing one she had already seen. This is fantastic as it means I can start buying more guitars and tell her they are old ones. The first guitar I bought was an Ibanez SIX70FDBG (yeah, I just had to look that up!), which I bought secondhand from a dealer in Bangkok. It cost less than twice what the pickups cost here so I thought it was a reasonable deal. It's a mahogany body with a bubinga top and abalone binding. The pickups are USA DiMarzio (yeah man!): Tone Zone in the Bridge, True Velvet in the middle and an Air Norton in the neck position. The Iron Label series was designed to appeal to shredders I think and while this guitar is easy to set up with a nice low action, I find myself getting jazzy on it as much as I do trying to shred. One thing I have always loved about DiMarzio pickups is that they generally sound great clean as well, even the high-output models that were designed with overdriven tones in mind (to my ears at least).
