Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

Until somebody that has a 2005 Japanese catalog can confirm [buddroyce?], I say, elaborate hoax.

The front of the headstock is Crystal Planet
The back of the headstock is also Crystal [edition of 200, what a coincidence] and is of smaller size than the rest of his pics.
I've never heard of it or seen one for sale anywhere in the Jp market, and if the edition was 200, I would have.
50000yen is $430.
There's not one picture of all of it together, just "component" pics.

Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

There is no shot of the whole guitar, which is one of the reasons I say elaborate hoax.

Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

You can't hack up a Crystal and end up with that guitar because the Crystal is 22 frets. It has to be seperate headstock pictures, false of course.

Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

Looks like a Hoax.. I've never heard of it, nor have I ever seen it advertised in any issue of Young Guitar that I've come across.. EVER... and just to prove this is a hoax, I just checked my 2005 Ibanez Japan catalog seeing that he says I can find this guitar on page 8 in the 2005 Ibanez Japan catalog.....I SEE............ J.CUSTOM..... and nothing there about a "Cosmic Wonder" or any ad that looks like the one he posted.

Btw... Dimarzio Cosmic Distortion?? WTF??

(damnit, I need a copy of the Ibanez 2006 catalog.. if it's out already..)

I figured you'd have the 05 catalog. My guy dropped the ball and I didn't get one ;/

Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

Actually I'm starting to build quite a library of Japanese catalogs.. (Ibanez, ESP, Edwards, Navigator, Killer, Caparison). I just gotta figure out which box they're in...

Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

I have catalogs 1994 to 2005, looks like a hoax to me too but what's up with that ad with the chromed JS that features a HSH config, what guitar is that?

Elaborate Hoax for 430 USD? Someone needs to think bigger.

*******DANGER WILL ROBINSON********

If it is a "Cosmic Wonder" (whatever that is, if it exists) why oh why does the guitar in the auction not match the one in the picture of the band??? The body is way different in the pic of the band.

Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

And if you look at the pictures that show the trem, it is obviously NOT an Edge Pro even though they say that it is. It's got the little things sticking out the back which you only see on more traditional Floyd copies like the Edge, Lo Pro, Lo TRS, etc.

Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

From the photo of the back of the headstock it does not look like a "5 PIECE MAPLE /WALNUT NECK MATERIAL PLUS MAPLE AAA NECK WITH BUBINGA REINFORCEMENT" neck.
