I was reading THIS topic on the forums the other day and it got me poking around on the Ibanez website.

funny thing is up until a couple of months ago I wasnt a huge Ibanez fan, more of a Jackson (and of course my custom smile.gif) fan, I bought as a backup an Ibanez RG1570 prestige, it was cheap on ebay, well I loved it from the moment I first picked it up and its pretty much become my main axe, especially since I`ve changed the pups and getting a tone that I like out of it smile.gif

anyways, poking around I really liked the look of the S series prestige models, searching the net for prices and they are pretty pricey, ranging from £800 - £1000 (UK stirling), I decided to have a poke on ebay as well, just to see what was going on of course, not to buy.... just looking... honest wink.gif

Well I stumbled accross an S2170 prestige, couldnt help myself! had to have it laugh.gif so I went straight in there and won the thing! biggrin.gif

Picking it up tonight! cant wait to get it home smile.gif

Couple of pics from the ebay listing but I`ll take some proper photos when I get it to try and capture the colour (Purple chameleon)

SWEET!!!
Those Prestige series are lovely instruments, I had a Natural Finish with a Walnut Cap!
Had to sell it to cover the rent a while back! Shame!

biggrin.gif well I`ve just got home from colecting the new baby! biggrin.gif

It was fairly close to a friends house so I dropped in there hence why its so late!

I`m kind of speechless about it, turns out the guitar is only a few months old, not a single mark on it, not even a pick scratch, completly 100% perfect, like brand new! It looks way better in the flesh, the photos dont do it justice at all!

Cant wait to get some serious playing out of it tomorrow! biggrin.gif

Congrats again!
