lefties, I'm writing in to Ibanez to request for 7 string models; who's supporting?

-- to request for 'left handed 7 string electric guitar with tremolo' models--

The best I could do is link this topic in my mail to them, to show on all the people who's supporting this; hopefully to be read and given real consideration by Ibanez themselves. Hopefully, to reissue discontinued models or produce new models.

In saying that, which discontinued models you would like to see again, or you would like a newly produced model?

If the latter, how would the guitar be like? what kind of specs you would like to see, etc etc?

Let's hope and pray real hard to Jesus.

In the meantime, post away!

I'd be in for either the RG7321 or I guess I could stretch to the RG1527..

Let us lefties have access to some of those nice quilted tops and great colors you have offered righties in the past with gold hardware of course .

It seems a little mean to be leaving the 100,000s of left handed playes from having a good range, after all you only have to mirror the CNC settings hardly brain surgery! I think lefties should be able to order ANY Ibanez left handed for only a SMALL fee, after all your not cripples so why should you be discriminated against if you have the cash and want to choose Ibanez??

Re: I am writing in to Ibanez to request for lefty models; who's supporting me?

As frustrating as it is - being a Lefty - I will say that it is a great moment when you find a really nice guitar. There are plenty of nice Lefty's out there to choose from, but if you are obsessed with a particular model (JEMs for example), then you are up a creek and will have to make your own paddle! I have 4 lefty Ibanez guitars (JEM555, 2 X RG570 and one 1570 Prestige), and I recently bought a 50th aniversary Strat, and a Custom Shop Les Paul. But for the higher end Super Strat style guitars I have turned to Jackson. Everything is available Left Handed! Plus the quality is second to none!
I support the letter to Ibanez for additional consideration to Left Handed players. I support that motion to any guitar manufacturer. Espacially for quality instruments.

Re: I am writing in to Ibanez to request for lefty models; who's supporting me?

in the meantime,

for lefties who're in support of this and have been waiting and waiting for ages to have an Ibanez 7 string left handed electric guitar with tremolo in your hands, could write in to Ibanez via e-mail or give them a call (for those in the States).

The proposal only grows stronger and only be given real hard consideration if they can see a significant amount of people that would be in this market for 7 string lefty model(s).

Otherwise, it would not be cost-efficient for mass-production.

number of people proposing = the strength of proposal

cheers!

I just want Ibanez in the end to us lefties some decent guitars, i.e. the higher end stuff, sig. models, JC's etc. whatever they can do. It just has to be something decent with a bit of color that means NOT black.

Re: I am writing in to Ibanez to request for lefty models; who's supporting me?

Im afraid you wont get enough support to change ibanez' lefty lines from this board alone. You can count the number of left handred players on this board on two hands (which seems to be up from a month or two ago by some bit) and im afraid that wont be enough to make them even consider a change.


Oh, and yay for lefties
