Just remembered I had this pic

I dont know how many people knew about this but I'll post about it anyway.

Last year, Ibanez did a collaboration with the discount clothing maker Uniqlo to make t-shirts (Of course, I bought 2 of them, 1 to wear, 1 to store). Along with that, they also had a raffle to give out this guitar:



There were only 3 made and only for the raffle. 2 were displayed at Uniqlo stores (the largest Uniqlo store in Shinjuku, Tokyo and the Nagoya store). I managed to take this pic of it on display. I think the design sucks, but it's based on the RGA with H-H setup. IIRC the pups were Dimarzio IBZs but I dont remember exactly

I dunno about that. I think it might be a fake. The person would have to live in Japan to even be eligible to get the guitar iirc, and the fact only 3 were ever made makes me think it's fishy.

I may be wrong, but there are too many factors to make me believe it's true:

1. IIRC, this guitar was only available to customers of Uniqlo in Japan (I may be wrong about this, my memory is fading lol)
2. They would have to understand Japanese at my level (basically fluent in not just speaking but also reading) or be Japanese (I dont think there are that many English speaking Japanese people here).
3. The fact that only 3 of these guitars were made and it SOMEHOW makes it here (if the criteria in both 1 and 2 are met).

Oops, just realised that I was thinking of a different guitar, my mistake.

Nice! It's almost 80's, but not.
