I would like to see them add some quality hardtail bridge options to the AZ line. Not the cheapo stamped ones like they use on lower line guitars, but the nice Gibraltar Standard II bridge. They can't cost that much more than the cheap ones... Just put the good ones on all hardtails that don't say GIO!
HEY! You bashing my RG5000 now?

Ha ha... My RG3XXV was blue with blue dots and I didn't like it too well. Love the RG565 reissue idea though, would be nice to have an H-S Ibanez RG again!

You're not bashing my old 22 fret lipstick red Saber are ya? ;-) You know what would rock... A 24 fret Saber with H-S pickup configuration and Edge trem.

For the love of God please bring some Prestige RGA's to the US. Why has this not happened yet?

Re: Ibanez 2019 NAMM Speculation Thread

Well, since dreaming is allowed


A RE of the PMC and GMC, Darren Johansen ATD would do the swirl,

And a RE of the JS3 (Donnie), JS4 (Electric Rainbow)and JS5 (RainForest).

And some more RGA EU market pleeeaaasssseeee!!!!
All of these would be Sugi Custom built by Nick SugiMoto. This would be a strike of genius from Ibanez!!!!!

If anyone from Ibanez PR is reading this, you can still make this real.

Cheers,
H.

Re: Ibanez 2019 NAMM Speculation Thread

I think a Lo Pro 8 would be the only thing that would sell any more new 8's. That market shriveled to a raisin.

I predict further quality degradation as Fujigen tries to meet the increased demand, which won't offset the difficulty in getting guitars in the US as China digs into the allocation further. I predict they'll have to expand production output to the point I see a partnership with Sugi to build their own production facility under Sugi management as the only real solution.

There is something good coming you won't be expecting.

Darren will be doing preswirled bodies for sale after completion, but JD's CNC trouble is delaying everything.

Maybe we should all start writing letters to Steve demanding he demands it, lol.


Back on track though, this would be a killer release from Ibanez though it would be strange to have a signature signature guitar...

YES. Give us solid colors, More focus on the genesis models, and some decent S series models that aren't a Herman Li signature or natural finishes.

Oh **** if they did this, even in a limited way like Fujigen does with their custom shop, Holy hell will I be saving my pennies for THAT.

Just look at Gibson rebranding Les Pauls (signature models) as someone else's signature models (Slash, Zakk Wylyde, etc)

I'm with you on the Les Paul being a signature model, it has his signature on the headstock for god's sake. I just wonder how you'd divy up the royalties between Steve and Munky without it being too pricey.

That's a good point, but Gibson did it for a long time so that's why I wonder why Ibanez can't do it.
