Yeah, they should keep making JPMs but rename them, like Music Man and the AXIS/EVH situation.

i agree on the jpm, but redisignate it as a prestige rg with some other inovative graphic. The viper neck is so cool and dont know why it didnt make it on other guitars.

What's the deal with those handrests? I saw one on Ebay a few weeks back, went for like $5 or $10... couldn't figure out how the hell it was supposed to work...

Basically they give you something else to rest your palm on when muting so you don't push the bridge and knock the guitar out of tune.

Wow! I guess I must have seen it earlier on...

Again.... WOW... that's a lot of money for a little metal bar across the trem...

But now that I know how it works it does seem pretty damn useful...

IMO it's ok if it's featured as an X series even...

YES, there is a ****load of many Euro Heavy Metal players (Power Metal) that would love to get hold of an Ibanez flying V guitar.

How I know that?
Check out how many of these guys plays ESP and Jackson and you see how many of them plays the V2 (Jackson/Warmoth name of the body) type of guitars with that bodystyle.

Musicians that I met when I performed (or worked with/for at some Swedish festivals) that I have spoken with would in almost every case prefer Ibanez over other brands. Not just for the advertisingmoney , these guys would choose Ibanez because of the Ibaneztrems, necks, feel and tone.

However the only models that Ibanez offers has bodyshapes of superstrat (and similar). These musicians consider that a superstrat looks plain stupid and doesn't look cool on stage especially when wearing "metal-attributes", dressed in leather, stagetheatrics (this is what a VERY famous guitarist in a worldfamous Swedish Metalband told me on why he used Ibanez only in studio and NOT live).

Besides tone and feel the looks of an guitar is important!!!! Ibanez get the V-body models back. AND remember to make some Vbody lefties as well with Wizard I necks, ok?

The Rocket Roll please!!! Not the Gibson Flying V copy, but the early 80's version. Maybe some old copy guitars like the LP and the SG and the Firebird and even the Dan Armstrong lucite guitar. I know you can't do them exactly the same as the 60's and 70's, but Ibanez makes them so much better than those OTHER guys :-)

Forgot to mention...how about a few more models of the Iceman...like a set neck version and maybe something with more ornamentation. I also 2nd the Voyager. That thing was awesome. How about an RG with a less pointy headstock...like the Roadstar. That Holdsworth model was also awesome from the 80's. Also, could you maybe make a guitar with a Floyd Rose vibrato that DOES NOT float...a la Eddie Van Halen's original Frankenstrat. A little more wood on the guitar would be good and also not all of us pull up with the whammy...lot of us only go down.

RG550 with maple board and ...umm... colour choices (Fire Alarm Red! Yay!).
BFP.
PMC.
The Radius jobbie with the Wizard neck (540R LTD?).

All with proper trems - Edge.

Oh. And I wouldn't mind a re-issue of the sharkfin V Proline model I once had. Real sweet.
