Loch Ness Green reissue not on Ibanez website?

I noticed that the DY and SK are there, but no LG. Anyone know why it's not there anymore?

Yep, LG not there when coming into Ibanez.com. Only Yellow and Pink.

The intrigue continues. Did they make only 450? Will they do another production run?

So many questions and so few answers.

They said it was a limited run and must have sold out. No point of letting a product that is no longer available take up valuable website real estate. There was clearly a lot more demand for LG due it it's limited initial run. Soon the other two colors will be gone also.

Then they should load it into the "Past Models" listing as you scroll further down.

I see another run coming here in the fall since there was never an official notification on the limits.

At NAMM they said that 200 LG were allocated to US and 100 of each for SP an DY. There are other videos you can find from NAMM with Ibanez reps saying the same thing.

Check out Rich's website. They put the kibosh on the lefty LG for some reason.

Seems that my direct link no longer brings the LNG up, either.

Probably oversold.
Easy way to fix.
Do a quick reissue of the JEM777VBK.

If they were planning on doing another production run, it would be pretty stupid to take it off the website.

I did find it rather strange that Ibanez took out an advert in the recent Guitar World for the 30th LNG. By the time that ad had hit shelves, the guitar was long gone via pre-orders. What a waste of money.

What people can't have they want even more. Taking it off the website just creates more pent up demand for the second run.

Note they did NOT put the 30th LG in the prior JEM models listed at the bottom of that same JEM page. Would have been an easy addition. But not done. Hmm.

I was talking to this buddy of mine from Pluto, yes, he's still pissed about having his homeland demoted to non-planet status, but, he was talking to his best source on Ur anus, and Ibanez is definitely not making another batch of these guitars. And he would know.
