Ibanez 2006

Hi everyone...

So im saving up some money to buy a new guitar, ill have about U$1500 -2000

Thanks

Re: Ibanez 2006

That would be awesome!
I guess it should be released as a hardtail, which i like even more!

Re: Ibanez 2006

The RG6EX and RG7EX should hit our shores by 2006.

Nice. Prestige 8-string too? Cool. Hopefully a new UV.

Re: Ibanez 2006

Any ideas on the prices? i thought this year prices were a little high, keeping on mind that most models came along with "ok" pickups (IBZ)
I think Ibanez have repeated some features a ˇˇˇlot!!! this last years, i mean, most models have the HSH or HH config. rosewood fretboards everywhere, floating trems everywhere! and one more thing, it would be nice to see some GREEN guitars!

Re: Ibanez 2006

I doubt Ibanez will do something as extraordinary as offering maple or ebony boards on their guitars. And I doubt even more that prices will be reduced...

Re: Ibanez 2006

Maple and Ebony isn't really extraordinary, because they used a maple board on last years 1550 and is still available on the PGM. As for ebony boards, the GBs, PMs and JSMs still have them. I doubt Ibanez will release an 8-string, cause there's not really a huge demand for 8-strings. Anyway, I'll be looking forward to next years 20th Anniversary JEM.

Re: Ibanez 2006

But i mean, maple isnt too pricey for mass production, right? i mean there isnt a huge difference between maple and rosewood boards.
And maybe something besides basswood and mahogany bodies? i'd love to see alder or even ash.
Any rumours about the 20th anniversary jem? on looks, specs, anything?

Re: Ibanez 2006

My guess is that they discontinued the 1550 is so that they can sell more PGMs (Malple board). You've got Ash on the RGT220A, and I don't think they'll release an Alder bodied RG anytime soon. Alder is reserved for the $2000 7VWH.

Re: Ibanez 2006

RG6EX and RG7EX is indeed made in Korea.(at least that's what I have been told by some dealers in Japan). They're aparently being pumped out by the same factory that is making the Schecter Hellraiser series and the ESP/LTD 1000 series of guitars. If the Schecter and ESP/LTD stuff is any indicator of how the RG6EX and the RG7EX will be, then it'll be pretty darn good.

I'm tempted to bring one over from Japan right now, but I have no use for a guitar that isn't in a category of guitars that's drool worthy.

Re: Ibanez 2006

Really. I would've thought the RG6EX and RG7EX was Made In Japan.

Re: Ibanez 2006
