Re: Ibanez RGR521 with Reaper Inlay or Barbed Wire Inlay
I can't believe they've tagged that thing with an RG5XX series number. Unbelievable. They should have tagged it an RGR321 because that's really all it is.
People have been asking for Prestige level MIJ hardtail RG's, better colors, and more models with reverse headstocks. So, rather than make something nice, they throw this thing together. It's almost like they're teasing us. Like someone said, "It's not really what they've been asking for, but lets see if they buy it anyway".
If they want to make a new RGR521, here's what it should be; Prestige MIJ, basswood body, flush mount jack, two DIRECT MOUNT humbuckers, 24 fret ORIGINAL WIZARD profile necks with rosewood OR MAPLE fingerboards And, maybe just to be different, offer it with some freakin' color choices. They don't have to be the old neons. Come up with something different. Orange, baby blue, candy apple red. Something to go along with black, BESIDES BLACK! A guitar like that would be worthy of the RG5XX series nameplate.
Come on Ibanez, I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU to make it. --Jason
