Where there any ibanez guitars made out of mahogany?

What about quality model string-thru or neck-thru ibanez's?

ibanez guitars and wood

There have been several Ibanez guitars made of mahogany. Many of them had maple tops, such as the RG3120 in the current line up others of them like the S540 LTD Sol were all mahogany with the wood on show. The K7 Korn's signature model is mahogany too but this is hidden under a solid paint finish.

In the past the only mahogany guitar with a string through bridge that comes to mind is the JS6 / JS6000 which was available in the early/mid 90s. It had a mahogany body with a fender style hardtail with the strings going through the body.

Most of the sabres are mahogany.

The American series of the 90s had some neck thrus, IIRC...

There are a some neck-thru mahogany J-Customs that should still be available, and the new RGT3120 qualifies as well. See this thread

Here's a pic of two 7 stringers made out of mahogany. *The RG2027 is a three piece mahogany body as is the RG7CT but the RG7CT has the schweet flame maple top.

And some or all of the RBM's were made out of Mahogany. And those Rosewood necks they had were killer!
