    I wanted one of those back in the day. Except after the lawsuit era, Ibanez got swelled in the head and their prices followed suit. Not to mention the weights, some of those Artist models were quite zaftig.

    I love yours too! They're one of the best kept secret in the world of guitarists: they play well, they sound great, and they look gorgeous.

    As always, you're mastering a smooth, tasty chord progression, my friend... The thread is about the guitar but I can't help but pay attention to the nice playing there. Sticks to the ear. No idea if this is something you came up wit or if you're covering someone else's song but it's beautiful, I tell you that.

    Thanks. Just came up with it. Not an original style though.
