Amazingly beautiful, but the piezo is crazy! I guess they were lazy to do it right.

That's awesome. As explained on the second page of the thread, there was no other way to route the piezo. He also said he got it for free due to his endorsement.

Thanks for posting.

Free is about what I would pay for it. I doubt believe that was the only way to wire the piezzo. It's a nice guitar except for that, but that is just hack work. There is always a way to hide wires.

They could have recessed routed under the plate of the bridge at the top. You would have still seen a little bit of wire going under the plate but it wouldnt be a big-ole-wierd-hole like that.

Re: Have you guys seen this? Necktrough RG7 on ibanez forum

they at least should have bundled the wires together

We should ask Tak Hosono more about it.

Maybe we can send him pics of Gibsons and Fenders and Parkers with piezo pickups in the bridges that don't have all the wires exposed and a big hole on the face of the guitar.
The fact that there's a pic of a 7321 with the same bridge and the wires are hidden makes it all that much worse.

That's pretty.......... awful ...........

What a mess - you are so right Elcid - I mean, if Ibanez themselves can manage to produce an Edge equipped guitar with piezos and no exposed wiring, surely....... ummm...... that guitar makes no sense!

Exactly the way the Wilkinson on the JP I had was wired.



Nobody said a word about that, and happily sold for $5k, twice.

Re: Have you guys seen this? Necktrough RG7 on ibanez forum

Come on, the cheap Peavey piezo equipped models are neatly done, so I don't see why Ibanez couldn't have.

Otherwise, really pretty guitar. Ibanez needs to start putting this sort of thing into production. If they realise that they need to start marketing to playing players and not kiddywinks.

Re: Have you guys seen this? Necktrough RG7 on ibanez forum

Is that an Ibanez factory fitted Wilkinson Rich? Maybe I'm way too critical, but I guess I'm just used to how well Parker seem to have got around the piezo issue (although apparently a fret or two will drop off the Carbon Fibre fingerboard - details, details.....)?

Read the comments, not like they'd put a smile on anybodies face, would they? I'm not "mad", just commenting on the normal tone of this place most of the time.

Maybe someone already registered can tell him for me. That's unforgivable on a custom shop instrument. The JP is a better, but still not acceptable work in my opinion. Take the finish off the JP and take away the fact that it was his then try to get $5k twice for it.
