I can perfectly adapt to that difference. My point was that all prestiges and J.custom are at 430mmR for shredding matters I'd say, but hell when they make one with Edge bridge that everybody's asking for, they decide to use the not so shredding friendly JS
series radius. I'ts not just me, many fellows guitarist I've talked about this feel the same and in other forums ppl agree as well, but actually I was talking about inconsistency on Ibanez decisions and about NOT using their best trems on their current high-end guitars... Perhaps you didn't read (understand) my full post huh?. Cheers!
I read your post and I'm fairly confident to say I understood the letter of your post, if not the intent of your post. Having moderated the site for 10 years, I've seen plenty of threads like yours where the OP sees a guitar they quite like on the internet and finds a reason not to buy it, then makes a thread about how it's "not right" and it's "not just them that feels that way".
Yes, I'd love to see the Edge trem on every guitar Ibanez makes, you would too. That's what they've done here. Great.
You don't like the fretboard radius. Sorry, but there are 1000s of guitarists out there (like me and Mr Satriani) who do. This guitar is for us, not for you, unless you decide to admit that if Satch can handle a 250mm radius, you should make the effort to as well, especially if the rest of the guitar is exactly what you're after
Don't think of it as Ibanez being inconsistent, think of it as them offering variety. If this J-custom isn't for you, maybe the next one will be.
If Rich is right and it is a larger radius then the spec sheet says, then take it as a lesson of "don't beleive everything you read on the internet". Hop on a plane to Tokyo and go investigate for yourself
Meanwhile I'm gonna start a thread about "why don't they offer RGs with vintage radius fretboards..."
