The word "designed" should be the big clue here

Re: LA CUSTOM SHOP DESIGNED MADE IN JAPAN?

if it's the one that I know off...It's "New old stock"
it's been hanging in that store for ages, I think Feedback in Rotterdam had one as well...at least 5years ago. see this 5year old thread:

specs on this site:

I like the fact that it has a 27" scale, but I'm not sure if I like the Duncans...the knobs are too Les Paul for my taste.

There are a few models like that - a 7 string as well. The twelth fret funky inlay is the dead giveaway on those. Never really excited me, seemed more like a marketing ploy.

In what way? Is there another PRODUCTION model Ibanez 7 string with a tremolo and EMG 707s from the factory that has ever been made?

That's a CSD (mine, actually, although not for long. lol). I asked for one that isn't a CSD.

You miss my point and I wasnt really talking about that guitar initially. The "marketing ploy" I felt was that those guitars really had much to do with the LACS brand/perception. It doesnt take LACS specifically to route for EMG's. That guitar could have just as easily been called a JC or even Prestige if they released it more widely.

Oh. You're right. I did miss your point. You were talking about the funky inlay, and went right into the marketing ploy thing. I read it as if the guitar itself was the marketing ploy. Sorry for the misunderstanding.
