Re: Ibanez JS Design Contest

only for a JS100 ? aaargh !

but hahahaha anyway, one of the gifts is the "Live in Paris" CD/DVD !!!

They do honour to French people !!

Have I already said that I own a JS2000 because for a classy look, they use
the word "Champagne" ?

Re: Ibanez JS Design Contest

Ibanez guitar "with winning design wrapped around it".

Just a dumb way of saying custom paint/design. The Jem contest was aimed at guitar players and collectors, seeing as how Ibanez is running it and you're designing a two-of-a-kind guitar. The Satriani thing is epic records...so you get a cheapy guitar with your design.

*Yawn* Pass. I'd be interested if they'd actually foot the bill for a MIJ JS, since Satriani is my fav.

That is pretty strange syntax -- I wonder if they intend to print out the winning design on some medium and literally "wrap" it (that is, apply it...) around the guitar. That has been done before and it'd be way simpler than having an artist reproduce whatever design wins. I can't recall whose guitar it was, but there's an old thread on here with a JS (or Radius?) guitar with a heat-shrunk graphic print applied to it. It looks great but I never figured out exactly how it was done or what the medium was. And isn't that more or less what the cheap version of the JS20 has?

Re: Ibanez JS Design Contest

If you take it literally, yeah it does sound like something shrink-wrapped around it. Ugh...gives me memories of those horrible Joe Strummer Teles that had what appeared to be a plastic "skin" with fake relic effects drawn on it.

Re: Ibanez JS Design Contest

From your comments I'm guessing you've never actually handled a Joe Strummer Tele, as they don't have a skin on them with fake relic effects drawn on- they are painted, and are then heavily "relic-ed" through abrasion, sanding, and generally being knocked around. The metal parts are rusted up and variously abused as well. Although some effort was made to make them resemble Joe Strummer's actual guitar, no two are exactly alike.
