PINKIE GETS A MAKE-OVER

The Ibanez RG7420MC 7-string, affectionately known as Pinkie (thanks to my daughter), got a make-over today at the Ibanez warehouse in Bensalem, PA.

This looks almost brand-new now!!

Their tech Mike really knows how to work his mojo! He serviced my Universe 7 back in 2019, and he’s done work on guitars for artists such as Steve Vai, John Petrucci, Tom Martini, and the like. His attention to detail is truly amazing. Things we can’t see he zeroes in on with laser precision.

Pinkie got the bridge and pickups cleaned up (they look new!) as well as installing new volume/tone pots and a new pickup selector. Fixed the next, put on new strings, adjusted the saddles, and you’d think this guitar came off the rack this morning. IT’S THAT GOOD!

I can’t play it for a day because the glue is settling in on one side of the bridge. Otherwise, it’s good to go. And I got to take a nice scenic road trip there, so win/win.

But the Philadelphia Mills mall was DEAD! Oh man…
