New Guitar Day

Hey, everyone! Been awhile since I have posted. I ended up getting a new guitar today from Reverb. It’s a 2004 year model Ibanez SZ720. I’ve had my eyes on one of these for years - since I was a kid. I used to have an SZ520 model years ago and I remember having a hard time deciding between it and this model when I got that one since I liked both. So, I ended up randomly choosing the 520 model. I wound up putting Seymour Duncan Blackouts in it. I ended up giving that one to my oldest brother. I got to thinking about that guitar and started missing it a little and remembered the 720 model and how much I really loved the look of it, too, and told myself if I were to get another one, I’d get the 720 model. Well, here we are, haha. This guitar is absolutely beautiful in person! Pictures won’t do it justice. Overall, it’s pretty straight up, aside from some minor buzz on a few frets, which I’m going to have straightened out. I’m thinking about throwing some active pickups in it some day. For those who aren’t familiar with the old SZ models and have the opportunity to check one out, do it! These guitars play fantastic and are build fantastic, too! They made a Prestige model or two in this series, too.

Nice score! Toss a set of EMG 81/85 or Seymour Duncan JB/59 in it! :rock:

Funny you say that because I’ve been thinking about dropping either EMG or Duncan pickups in it. Thinking about the EMG 81/60 combo or Seymour Duncan Blackouts.

Either set will sound great. Have fun with it!
