I'm a classic rock guy: i play all of that good 60s-70s music (Beatles to Clapton), and I'm currently playing on a G&L Comanche Hardtail and a Gibson SG. They're great guitars! I have big hands and they both have extra big necks so they fit me well. Recently I was hit with a curveball, though. My shredder friend and I were hanging out and I got a chance to play his Ibanez Prestige RGA121. Wow!!! This thing was awesome. It has a mahogany body with carved maple top, and a 5 piece maple neck with a quartersawn section in the middle and flatsawn side sections. It's a bolt on neck and the heel is contoured so it feels like my 61 SG RI all the way up to the 24th fret. It has twin humbuckers which can be set up series/parallel and sound really great. I played some clean blues lines on it with my amp at the edge of distortion, and I couldn't believe how good it sounded! It was very crisp, responsive, and full sounding, especially the neck pickup. NOT what I was expecting! And it was just super, super easy and inviting to play. This guitar has a fixed bridge unlike most shredder guitars, so I would think that made it sound a lot more full vs. something like a floyd. Still, I was blown away. Adding distortion, the guitar never got muddy and stayed articulate, which I guess I did expect. So I'm wondering, who else is playing classic rock, blues, and other non-metal music on a guitar like this? Also, does anyone know of a similar guitar, of similar quality, that has a bigger neck? The neck felt great but I'm not sure how my huge hands would like the thinness of it (front to back) when playing for a while. My 61 SG RI also has a wide thin neck which sometimes drives me crazy. I loved the super wide nut on the Ibanez, ideally I'd like something similar but about twice as deep.
