2014 Genesis Collection thread

Okay, I know people are gonna go crazy once they know about the GCs for this year so I decided to make a dedicated thread for it.

As the first post to this official Genesis Collection thread, I will provide the first round of info I got today:

I had Aikyoku call over to Hoshino to get some information about this year's model lineup. They haven't decided yet (or so they say) and the release date is (supposedly) going to be late Fall, unless Hoshino is trying to screw with me and Aikyoku (which I seriously doubt, Aikyoku is a very well known local shop that has been here for decades).

So it isn't much, but as I learn new info directly from Hoshino, I'll post it here.

That's cool, but we generally trust Jemsite members more than we do oversees guitar stores......LOL.

Think of it this way, would you rather buy straight from Guitar Center or have a member go see the guitar, buy it if the condition and price are right, then send it to you for actual shipping costs? I would take option 2.

Yes. Ikebe leaked it to get preorders and ALL the links I posted are pictures of different bodied/topped ARs. Hog body/Flame maple top, Ash body, Mahogany body... Not a single RG or S in the lot. Why not just add a stinkin 540R to it? God this sucks so bad...

I dont mind the fact they did ARs... I just mind the fact there's NOTHING else being offered.

Re: 2014 Genesis Collection thread

My $0.02.
The Genesis Collection should eventually do a proper MIJ / Prestige level Iceman and Destroyer.
Just a thought...

MY THOUGHTS EXACTLY. I'd so buy one. Probably an iceman but jeez, this year's GC is just so disappointing.

I'd want an iceman with a lo pro or OE, not string through. Destroyer can be string through.

Re: 2014 Genesis Collection thread

I'm sure everybody that wanted an AR last year was sorely disappointed in all those shredder models. And now they can get a Fujigen AR for $1300?! I'd call it a win.

Dont get me wrong, I'm not disappointed in the AR itself... Just wanted one model that wasn't an AR. ALL of the models they are releasing being ARs sucks. Oh well, if I want something cool, I'll just get the RGCL37JB. Closest thing to an RG655 over here we'll ever get.

Re: 2014 Genesis Collection thread

I love RG's but Ibanez has a ton of heritage to draw from and I'm glad the AR people are getting Genesis gear. I don't think I'd buy one but the pre-Jem Roadstar would be neat to see redone.
