Am I wrong?

Going through the current ibanez catalog... I realize... they dont have any midrange guitars any more. What happened to the rg550/s540 types... Is this what the "premium" line is supposed to fill?

and Ibanez really should do something like this :

Cool Re: Am I wrong?

Not such a thing anymore, RG 550's and such have become way more expensive which put them closer to high end...

I wouldnt consider ~900-1200 to be "high end", definitely not "cheap" either, but besides the premiums which is one model, theres no "mid range" ibbies any more

Are you serious?

I'm surprised that a company like Peavey participates in some crappy "use more than 16 million colors!!" print stuff. it sounds extremely basic... yes, I can imagine that it does appeal to a lot of guys that want to design their guitar, but in a way it just seems cheesy to me.

It's just a matter of global economy. The price of the prestige gutiars hasn't really changed in Japan it's just that the Yen is worth more than it was 5 years ago.

So The RG1550 and the like are still mid range guitars it's just that the western currencies makes mid-range more expensive. Hence the premium line to fill the void created by the strong Yen.

People need to think on a more global scale when looking at guitar ranges too. There are several Premium models it's just that the US distributers don't bring them into your country. We have different ones over here in the UK and there are probably others available elsewhere in the world.
