The Ibanez JPM-P1 (Petrucci) Gets a Re-Fret

I finally got my JPM-P1 back from my luthier. He did a re-fret on it for me, and I must say the job is impeccable! ;) I was very pleased with the fret ends and nice even leveling and polishing he did afterwards.

I bought this guitar last year off eBay and got very lucky because it was in perfect condition. The only thing wrong with it were the frets, which had just worn down over the years from lots of playing. Considering this guitar is about 10 years old, it's miraculous that fret wear was the only major thing that needed to to be fixed on it. It was obviously played to death, but dings are very minimal and the trem is very clean with almost zero corrosion and spotting.

This guitar is one of my favs, and is certainly my most collectible guitar. It plays like a dream and sounds amazing.
