my vote goes for the entire radius line. also would like to see them make some mahogany radius' for a change, ex. the js6XXx with the controls mounted regular, trem, 5 way...
also... HOW ABOUT MAKING THE CUSTOM SHOP AVAILABLE FOR CONSUMERS AGAIN?!?!?!?!
times have changed, technology has improved, we have more options due to the innovations of the past 10 years since the custom shop was readily available, i am older...have more money(am not a drooling 16 year old anymore) and most of us don't mind shelling out the cash for a $2000+ ibanez axe. this was already made apparent thru the j-customs, MCs, and anniversary models. i mean look at it this way, had ibanez not come out with the rgt3120 in 2002, i was going to go to jackson, esp, or carvin to have a custom axe made. ibanez is leaving alot of money on the table by not having the custom shop as an option.
i know that this would affect vendors like EKGco, LGM, and others, but to a lot of people, a laundry list of options for IBANEZ to build from would "make more sense" to the average name brand conscious consumer. not that that includes me(because it doesn't).i know plenty of people that have switched to jackson/esp/bc rich because they have a custom shop and ibanez didn't. most consumers are ignorant of the fact that there are third party vendors that are willing and able to do custom work, and think that if you want a custom *name brand* guitar, you go straight to their custom shop.
