Any new J-Custom for 2009?

Hello!!

The J-Custom line was really "light" in 2008... less models, less colors...

When are supposed to be released the new models for 2009??

Any inside somebody??

A H-H model would be cool, but with some changes... ebony board, other colors... Koa or spalted maple tops... I already have a 8470 in black onyx and a 8320 with EMG and I waiting for something new... GAS is BIG!!!

Then you definitely want this. Too bad about the EZ trem though...

Re: Any new J-Custom for 2009?

Apparently not,the 08 released 8420(HH) and 8470(HSH) in red or black is a 2 year run im told. So it looks like there will be no changes at this stage.You still may get some different tops and colours in the limited store specials for Ikebe and rockinn etc,though ebony is no longer an option. They cancelled a run of limited edition 7 strings last year so maybe its to do with the financial crisis.
I was hoping for an S version with vine this year X(

Yeah I saw these ones... The honey gold ones are nice... but I would prefer a H-H... this one is too much like my 8470

I really regret no to have bought the limited edition Koa ones that were sold by this guy some time ago I did not have the cash at that time....

If Ibanez doesn't release a great J.Custom soon, I think I'll go for a Koa Petrucci from EBMM... (or both... oooh GAS)

I saw one of the vine models in Lemon Yellow on evilbay last week. Needless to say I thought twice about pulling the trigger.

There nice indeed... but paying more vs the regular model just for another color is a bit strange...

Actually the honey gold ones are great and around the same price... reminds me of the FE color 2 years ago...

It's not just the color. The body is ash rather than mahogany, and it doesn't have a maple cap.

So there's nothing to look forward to in 2009? Probably just as well for me - it will give the poor old British pound time to recover before the 2010 models are released- at the minute the exchange rate to the yen is almost half what it was a year ago!
