100th Anniversary - S100SPL

You guys seen this yet...?
Haven't found any reference to it here so I guess not.
The images and news have come from another forum so I take no credit for breaking the story. Just be sure to thank Captain Ibanez.

Re: 100th Anniversary - S100SPL

List price was an estimated $10,000, for an S that had body inlay of silver blocks to represent confetti. The reason you don't see any is because I doubt anybody was fool enough to order any.

This is the JS forum, not the Other Ibanez forum.

Re: 100th Anniversary - S100SPL

That's just awful. Are they trying to pinpoint the price level at which even the most hard-core collectors won't even bother to make a purchase? I mean, they could smear a Jem with poo, call it an anniversary model, and probably sell a few at $5k. But ten grand, AND ugly? Wow. Buy two Black Dogs and walk away happy.

(EDIT - It would have to be Vai's poo, obviously)

Blurk, it looks like Gustav Klimt threw up on a coffee table.

Re: 100th Anniversary - S100SPL

LOL, wow. I usually can find something good to say about just about any Ibanez, but this one has me at a loss. Is GM giving them ideas for new models?

Re: 100th Anniversary - S100SPL

I wonder why this thread is on the JS section?

Re: 100th Anniversary - S100SPL

That would be my fault... I can't tell the difference between a 'JS' and an 'S' cause I'm an RG kinda guy... :-p

Re: 100th Anniversary - S100SPL

''Ibanez S100SPL, e-guitar, limited run - 15 pcs worldwide because of the 100th anniversary of the Hoshine Gakki Group, body made of the famous Camphor tree,''

Anyone know much about this wood they have used? I have never heard of it

Re: 100th Anniversary - S100SPL

Ahh... come on guys... cut them some slack...!
There's so much whining on these forums about Ibanez not producing anything different... and when they do... it gets trashed...!

I'm not a huge fan of it but it's one of the more unique and creative pieces they've come up with lately. Ooh... hang on... creativity... isn't that what music is built on...??!!

I respect all of your opinions... but let's not forget the big cojones it takes to release something creative and unique these days.

Cudos to Ibanez for breaking the rules and trying something different...!

Oh... and for the collectors out there... your collections will NEVER be complete if you don't have one of these... LOL...!
