Thumbs up New prototype

Taken from Ultimate-guitar.com

"I did one song on another prototype that hasnít got a model number as yet as weíre still working on it. It is something Iíve been working on for years with Ibanez, it is a three DiMarzio single coil guitar. I toured with it on the Experience Hendrix tour back in March and really fell in love with it."

Re: New prototype

I'm afraid it's 22 frets, but it does look good.

Re: New prototype

I know he said single coil, but they look like humbuckers in single-coil size. I'd actually prefer if they were 'splitable' humbuckers, especially in the bridge, since I like everything else about that beauty.

Single-coils are just too noisy in the bridge for what I play and the tone I like. But I love the JS single-coil split sound PAF Joe and PAF Pro in the neck.

OH, and one more thing Ibanez. DO NOT GIVE IT A BLACK HEADSTOCK! Matching body and headstock is a much better look, ask most people.

-cp

P.S. Oh, and NOT BLACK!!!

Re: New prototype

Eh.... that's pretty cool, but honestly, I was expecting an HSS version of the JS2400. This one looks... kinda generic. But hey, maybe those rails are new signature pickups, or something.

I'm mostly curious to see how it sounds though. Satch is the supreme master of tone in my book, so if the guitar sounds good, I have no gripes whatsoever

Re: New prototype

Looks like a Fender pickup layout. Joe used to play Strats way back. Sweet color too. Looks like Fountain Blue. And the maple neck is sweet too!
Hopefully more colors and pickup configurations make it into other lines, like the RG.

Re: New prototype

This is great news! I saw that guitar on the Hendrix tour and it looks and sounds great. They may have been working on it for years, but now all they have to do is pick a couple of colors (I know, not likely) and build the guitars. Hope they don't mess up a good thing between now and NAMM.

Peace

Mike

Re: New prototype

Hmm... wait a sec, considering the Strat-like layout of the guitar, I'm guessing that it has a master volume control and 2 tone nobs, one for the neck and one for the bridge/middle.

That, or they could be 3 individual volume nobs for each of the pickups... that'd be pretty sick
