Re: 2009 Prestige Guitars


PGM Fireman is coming:

Ibanez Fireman has a list price of $9333.33

The guitar comes with goodies. Hippie Strap, Bullet cable, and a pair of Extreme Isolation headphones, just like Pauls. My friend said "it played like a dream."

He also found out that one of the reasons it so expensive is because they have to make the guitars in a separate factory, due to the poisonous Korina wood shavings.

There is not an exact number of Firemen going to be made, or at least he doesnt know, but he was told the majority of them will be in the United States.

PICTURES COMING TONIGHT!

So many nice, yet increasingly expensive, guitars.
Man, why does the US dollar have to be sucking wind?!? :P

He is. Seems it's going to be super limited (I've heard 55 guitars). Thanks much, Ibanez.

Re: 2009 Prestige Guitars


The 55 guitars were related to the NAMM sold guitars which come with the strap and stuff. there are supposed to be more after NAMM, but they wont come with the extras.

Re: 2009 Prestige Guitars


There will be 50 Fireman's total. 45 SSS for World distribution, 18 to HUSA, and 5 in HH for Japan distribution only, probably by lottery the way they usually do.

The 20th is very reasonable at $2666, but limited to 300 Worldwide, 120 to HUSA, so tough getting allocations. I have 1, will probably have 2 if I'm lucky being in the stacked territory as I am.

Re: 2009 Prestige Guitars


Thanks for that confirmation. I'm not in the market for these guitars right now, but will definitely be hounding for one in 5 - 10 years.

Re: 2009 Prestige Guitars


My pick for shows coolest, the new 7 string hybrid bass. Short scale, plays like a guitar, at least after playing these 8 strings it does



I actually thought it was so cool I ordered them! The first new bass I'll be handling.

That bass is killer. I'm liking the SV2009SC. Nice art work.

Re: 2009 Prestige Guitars


I kinda like that. It's not black so it gets points right there. The paint job & inlay's are interesting too.

Re: 2009 Prestige Guitars


So the US keeps the 'old style' RGT320Z:


while the rest of the world gets a new one:


Or did they just forget to replace them? Strange days..
