Ibanez FR-reverse M.O. Custom

My hot-rodded FR-custom reverse headstock is almost done now. The body was handpicked by Magnus Olsson out of 30 other bodys, The tele-designed pickguard is also his work. He has done the routing, coppershielding and wiring. The reverese neck has been refinished in white with a nice custom logo . The pickups is tonezone S in the bridge, angled paul gilbert style. Dimarzio Area T in the neck. Itís in need of a proper setup but other than that, ready to go. I only hope Ibanez would pick up this great idea with the reverse headstock

That turned out really well, I think.

As said, would be cool to try it one day.

I will tell them.
But for my personal test would I suggest them to turn the head stock the right way :-)
I am not a fan of up side down guitar heads.

But I would like to see a stock FR with that pickup configuration (but a normal telepickup in the bridge). Also with a pickguard in that style on the FR would be cool to see.
With that said, I think the sales potential of a guitar like that would be very low, Ibanez people don't seem to like singlecoils.

The new FR365 are sexy enough for me to be hard.

I think they would sell good over here in Japan, considering the market is flooded with Tellies, strats, and LPs. Ibanez releasing a single coil guitar would be really nice for this market. We didn't get the single coil roadcores, which is a mistake on Ibanezes part imo. At that price point, for the Japanese market, I think they would sell. heck, I contemplated an indo FR because the body shape and wiring configuration are different. MIJ roadcores came so I gave up on that, but FRs are really cool guitars.
