    Well, I'm not sure how to search in here with only three letters (BFG)... I wanted to get some input from the masses about these guitars.

    Can anyone pipe in on their take? I checked one out, and the neck is nothing like a 50's neck (at least the BFG I checked out) - it's a lot thinner than my '57 Historic Black Beauty.

    Anyone make their own personal modifications?

    Thanks, appreciate the input!

    How do those Ibanez compare to the Gibson BFG's?

    In real life the Ibanez looks like it was dipped in crude oil mixed 50/50 with dog sh/t; the Gibson has a nicer matte finish.

    The BFG play decently but the switches are not conventional: upper bout toggle is on/off and the switch by the other controls selects the pup(s).
