Check this out--Japan Market has a KILLER Prestige

I was browsing the Japanese site, as they have all of the cool models and colors we don't get. I came across this little beauty:


It's almost a surf green, but that maple neck is supreme!

These were shown by someone else a while back.

I didn't like the natural headstock then and I don't like it now. I think it looks cheap - Matching headstocks please, Ibanez. Matching!

I do like the colour though.

Fountain blue. Same as the much celebrated PGM200. I hope we see this in the US market one day.

Yeah--I love the maple board, but not the maple headstock.

I thought you were "ditching" your Jem in favor of a Les Paul.

Re: Check this out--Japan Market has a KILLER Prestige

if this had the white binding around the fretboard and headstock!! also with the sharktooth inlays this would be SO BRUTAL! I had a ibanez neck like this i regret selling it! Why wouldnt IBANEZ continue making these neckS!!! The pain i suffer!! lol

That's a pretty nice axe. I don't mind the natural headstock either.

Re: Check this out--Japan Market has a KILLER Prestige

That would be sweet....if it had an Edge Pro. I love the maple though.

I wish they would at least offer the Edge Pro in SOME models...oh well, at least I got my RG1420F.

Normally I would vehemently disagree with you -- after all, Fenders and Charvels have natural headstocks and they're quite pleasing on those guitars -- but on an Ibanez, a natural headstock doesn't work unless the guitar has a white pickguard like a Strat.
