feedback, keeping a fair distance from the amp is

Sound Rating: 8


Changing the setup is something I only do when I
totally dismantle the instrument to clean it. They
like to gather dust in the nooks and crannies
which eventually get me to disasemble it
completly and set it up again.

Setup Rating: 8


This Ibanez is a blond, the saying blonds have
more fun, that I'm not sure of but it is a very
pleasing instrument.

Appearance Rating: 8


The gold plating is showing signs of tarnsih.
Several times I've considered having it redone
however, the used appearance goes well with it's
tarnished owner. :-).

The Scruggs Tuners are Shallers, they seem to have
a mind of their own at times, I put up with it as
