Well, I picked up my third JTV59 yesterday and so far, so good. I couldn't find another Cherryburst I liked, so, this time I went with the Black one. One thing I'll say, is that I have found these guitars to play consistently well, I really like them. The neck is much different than my Old Ibanez RG-440 which was thin and very flat. The profile fits my thumb really well, and I'm able to get some bends and vibrato going that I have not been able to do on other guitars. One other thing about this black beauty is that it is significantly lighter than the two Cherrybursts I had. I don't notice a difference with the sustain or tone though, which I though I might notice due to the difference in wood density.
I hope that the electronics stay strong on this one, cause I sure do like it!
