JS Mahogany Short-scale

Has anyone heard the word on the short scale mahogany JS, or the 7-string, as far as them being mass produced? *I've been trying to find the mahogany JS with a fixed bridge and twin humbuckers for a while now, no luck. *I was hoping Joe would make these available to the rest of us, why did Ibanez stop producing those anyway?

It boils down to the fact that Joe just wasn't using the JS6 & JS6000 as much anymore. *Plus, they really didn't sell that well new. *At the end of the run in '94 or so, Hoshino & Chesbro were both blowing them out to dealers at ridiculous prices, and still couldn't give them away. *The store I was managing at the time picked up a JS6000 for $450.00, brand new. *Had it for about 3 years before we were able to sell it, even after I got it signed by Joe!

Great guitars, and I love my JS6, but they appealed to a limited audience. *At the time, Joe was more associated with the JS1000s and the other Edge-equipped models. *

I don't think there's any chance of seeing a short-scale, fixed-bridge JS model. *It was something that Joe had custom-made for him, kind of like Vai's triple-neck heart and VWH guitars. *Ibanez learned their lesson the first time around. *The JS2000CG is probably about as close as we'll ever see to a fixed-bridge model JS again.

That's a big surprise, I would expect the total opposite. *I guess I will browse over at Warmoth. *Thanks for the info.
