Agreed, brother. I don't get it though - I used to totally dislike white guitars, but that 2550 is probably my favorite of '08 as of now. But I fancy one of those blue SV's too... yummy... it's way to early to has GAS like this.

The first RG I ever played was a white one with a maple fingerboard. This new one is looking really good! Still hoping to see a killer new 7-string though, got my heart set on one for my next purchase.

Personally I'm freaking thrilled about the new the bridge on the RGs, but after this year I've well and truly done all my guitar buying for several years!

Re: 2008 line-up leakage?!?

yeah. an easy change but I was just curious. I mean the black numbered ones have been on RG's since they first came out...

The White RG I like, also the S... oh la la.

Re: 2008 line-up leakage?!?

These trems look kickass Being a guitar-tech, it looks like these guys improves EVERY aspect that is a headache to me. Intonation like that on a FR-style trem? YEEES! *Dances*

Screw-on trem-arm? YEEEES! No more screwing the mutter rambo-tight and supergluing it stuck (Kudos to you for that tip, Ibanez-Mag) and holding the trem-bushings over a lighter to make the bushings bigger! YEEEEES!

No more Stainless steel (I think it is) string-supports (Or whatever you should call it) that's so stiff they break the strings super-easy, YEEEES!

I personally love every aspect of that trem. It looks absolutely WONDERFUL

We have, but a white (hell, non-black) Ibanez that is not a JEM or some entry-level model has become an endangered species

My RG quota is full but it does look like a nice axe. Needs a new pickguard in my opinion though.

Re: 2008 line-up leakage?!?

how expensive do you guys think the new S series guitars are going to be?

hopefully the SV costs around the same as the korean S
