Re: Ibanez USA Custom Exotic Wood Series

I can't believe how massive those maple tops are. Is it a very bright sounding guitar?

I used to play SA series (mahogany with thin maple top), but haven't played it for months (it's in my home country). But I haven't noticed any difference in sound (unplugged), but like I said, I don't have anytihng to compare it with.

A lot of those USA Customs and USRGs are sexy as hell. Did they not sell very well? I'd love to see more of them.

For that matter, Ikebe Gakki is always doing limited run J-Customs (like, 10 guitars). It'd be super cool if the LACS did a similar thing.

I spotted it on uk *bay. I couldn't believe my eyes. It is rare in Europe (even more here in UK). And the price was amazing, not only for what it is, but for its excellent condition as well. Catch of my lifetime...

I meant that 24 are in Germany. I know there are more of them around the world, but how many? I'd like to know production numbers. How rare are UCEWs?

Re: Ibanez USA Custom Exotic Wood Series

This USA Custom from Ericsguitars seems to have a non-standard layout. Is it a true Custom?
