July 2014 Japanese releases

Well looks like we're getting some interesting stuff for this month:

Single cut iron label, 7 string spot model? That's pretty cool actually.

The thing that caught my eye were Ibanez brand strings. I now wanna try those out

This caught my eye (again). Now it's got a maple fretboard!

I'd bet money they're D'Addario.

Re: July 2014 Japanese releases

I thought they made an orange RG with a maple fingerboard? That's what I want...

This has been there a while. I wish it would come to the states - or it's rosewood cousin.
BEAUTIFUL guitar! And I got a set of creme Dimarzio's that would go great in it.

Re: July 2014 Japanese releases

They've been using D'Addarios exclusively for many years on all guitars and basses, I'd have no reason to believe that's not what these are.

I know they've been using D'addario for years but D'Addario just released those XL strings and at the price point, wouldn't these compete with D'Addarios regular strings? Unless D'addario is planning on making their cheaper strings all Ibanez and keep the REALLY good stuff under the D'Addario name.

Re: July 2014 Japanese releases

At $15 / pack, how much competing is there?

Re: July 2014 Japanese releases

They are retailing for about 560 yen, I just checked Ikebe. That's only a little more expensive than standard daddarios.

Re: July 2014 Japanese releases

How much do you think they pay for strings when they buy a couple hundred thousand sets a year?
