Fitting ANY tremolo to a signature series guitar, other than what the artist is actually using, is not really a good idea. --Jason
Dear Jason, I do understand what you are pointing out,but NOT everyone can afford to buy JEM7V or JEM77B guitars.We wanted the JEM series guitars to be available to everyone.
We are building Custom shop version of S6 with ILT-1 tremolo for one of our endorsee right now. I can't reveal who this is but he is a very high profile artist so you will see his guitar soon enough. Best Regards,

Re: Ibanez, if you only read one thread here make it this one !!

My comment about the tremolos on the signature guitars were aimed at the high end JS and Jems, not the js100, jem555, jem333, etc. I should have been more clear about that.

The ILT-1 tremolo is what's used on the very lower end models, so you can surely see where one would wonder why an endorsee, who could get any bridge they wanted, would choose that particular bridge. But, they're an endorsee, and if that's what they want, that's what they'll get. It'll be interesting to see the custom shop S6. Probably winter NAMM? --Jason

Re: Ibanez, if you only read one thread here make it this one !!

I love Ibanez guitars but, like many here, do find the recent models less inspiring. Some more variety in the Prestige line regarding inlays and binding would be nice.
It would be great to see some options like having the control layout from the JPM (for example) applied to other models, too.

Tak Hosono, How about bringing back the Ibanez Proline PL2660 probably as a Prestige model? I think Ibanez really needs a V back.

Cool to see someone from Ibanez on here. More seven-strings are needed, there's no doubt about that. A neckthrough (RGT7) would be marvellous, available both with and without tremolos. Something like an RGT7620 and 7621? Not to mention more fretboard options (personally, I'd really like ebony) on the sevenstrings.

Re: Ibanez, if you only read one thread here make it this one !!

i may as well put my 2 cents in and ask for something i want,


I WOULD LIKE TO SEE MORE COLOUR IN THE RGT PRESTIGE LINE

i'm not a fan of the RGT220A or H, and the RGT320Q is nearly double the price and it's still a wood tone. i want real colours!

cheers
