Black J-Custom S?

That would be a definite "yes". *If the ARCH doesn't have gold sparkle binding, I don't know what does. *Let's just put it this way: the RG-ARCH has binding. *It IS gold. *And, I find it to be quite sparkly! *

But...don't take my word for it. *

Black J-Custom S?

i know a guy who has *the same one like that white one, but in black. bindings are all there, the only difference is that his fingerboard has all inlays (not only on 12th). but maybe his headstock says prestige and not j-custom, not sure.

Black J-Custom S?

he is not really my friend, i just know him because my friend playED with him in a band, so i had a chance to talk to him about his guitar once. he told me he bought it in Germany where he was living for few years (and playing some african-etno-something), and that it costed around 4-5000DM, don't remember. he didn't gave me much of other specifications, but if i remember corectly (i might be wrong, it was a year ago), he replaced super-distortion from bridge position.
i have some really small pics on his cd, and i will ask my friend (his ex-drummer) if he has bigger pics, and i will try to post them here.

Hmmm...odd. *
Looks like an S-5400-NT...but in black.
The headstock (where it doesn't say "J-Custom, Reg. #blah blah", it's just "Ibanez" in MOP or abalone) and the "propeller" inlays are the same as on the 5400NT. *
Same p/u config. *
Same gold hardware. *
Same gold sparkle binding.

Maybe Ibanez did an S-5400-BK(BP?)...or someone painted it black. *:-)

Hey guys, look what I´ve found!
On the first page someone posted this pic:
http://jemsite.insomnia-vhosting.com...ear%20lata.jpg

That was the guitar i ment, but no one knows it.
And now I found this guitar:


I´ve got it from this site: http://xstrange.com/lipe/
It says that it was made for L.A. musician Steve Fister. Don´t know that guy but his guitar nearly looks the same as the guitar from the link above.

Mike Lipe used to work for Ibanez. That's an interesting body shape...to me it looks like a fusion--the silhouette of an S and and the profile of an RG. The pickups look squeezed together...or is it distortion in the pic?

Hey you´re right! The PUs are really squeezed together... but nevertheless, the guitar looks awesome!

24-frets, anybody? My ideal guitar - an S-series with 24 frets. Mmmmm.
