Sorry for making that face, it just kinda startled me for a minute there.

That was my reaction the first time I picked one up, and it last to this day. Can't get rid of my JEM, but I'm probably not ever going to play it on stage again, because S-5570.

I had found a grape ice (i think, possible PN) 540S a long time ago and I wish i had gotten it, but having only 22 frets bothered me a lot. I shoulda remembered i coulda gotten a neck made for it with 24 frets and that woulda solved my issues but still. It was an awesome sounding guitar.

I would love to have an Ibanez made 24 fret neck for some of the colors I've seen only there in Japan. Actually I need to get in touch with my friends who still know my ex to see if they can get my maple boarded RG-550 from Morioka for me.

I have an RGR580 with an MIJ wizard 2 neck in Deep wine (2001 catalog). I had an RG5000 but i decided to sell it because i wasnt using it at all.

I'd probably always be an RG player if it weren't for the S-series. Only RG's I now own are my JEM and a 550 which is still in Iwate.

You can't just 'make' a 24 fret neck for a 22 fret body, there's a neck pickup in the way and S series don't have pickguards to hide any butchery, it's a nontrivial problem to solve.

Nontrivial he says! It's both funny and true at the same time.

So, I follow Top Gear on Facebook and they had a story on Honda anniversary models for Australia for the Civic and NSX wrapped in gold like chrome. It got me to thinking of the current JS Chromeboy.
Any chance Ibanez would wrap another model in a similar fashion? A (cough) RG perhaps? The stuff comes in a ton of colors. Might be interesting to see.
Or maybe they just want to keep the JS1CR unique?
