No thanks. I'll pass on that and spend just about 3k and get a customized Suhr Modern

Come on guys, it's not just expensive, it's also hideously ugly.

... That is ridiculous. I'd rather get a new vigier or a suhr.

Re: 5K new Ibanez J custom

Someone needs to call a landscaper to trim the vine back cause it's growing past the neck and onto the body.

WOW! Bet the domestic (Japanese) market loves it. Gotta remember they aren't designing the JC's for gaijin.

Far too expensive, but I do love it.

Re: 5K new Ibanez J custom

I think it's ugly. I wouldn't pay $500 for that, nevermind 5k.

Re: 5K new Ibanez J custom

I quite like it. I don't $5K like it, and I don't like the Edge Zero, but a nice idea

Re: 5K new Ibanez J custom

Frozen Ocean, their finish naming department has a vast pool of creative ideas .

There will be enough people in the Japanese market that can and will affort the guitar, don't worry.

It is beautiful, nonetheless, spare the EZ - ebony fretboard, neckthrough, comes in a solid flight case, not the regular J Custom one. And they mention something about it having an "Asymmetric Super Wizard neck shape" and lots of hand labor. I would't refuse if it came as a gift. And I think it shows one more very well that Ibanez is first a Japanese company with a sustainable domestic market, and only secondarily an international guitar producer.
