Default Ibanez Swandive

This just arrived

I thought it was unique enough to go for it. It's actually an 86 RG425PR...The pearl red is much darker in person...almost Ferrari red.

It's what I consider the era when Ibby began shreddifying their axes so I figured it would make a nice low buck ol' sister to the FP JEM.

Kind of a Roadstar/Rg/Kramer composite. Sweet axe man!

Never seen the Nightswan pickup setup before on an Ibanez. Love that red!
