If Joe has hung up his chromeboy for an alumiboy live, then I'd pass on it as a player. The plating appears to be exceedingly thin, based on it being worn thru to base (some sort of black primer) where his arm rests and from pick scratches.
it's good that ibanez try to get a chromey to the masses, but IMO its not acceptable to release a guitar with such a fragile finish. leave beta testing to linux users
