Is this a legitimate Ibanez Prestige Gigbag?

Hi, I scored this on an auction site. It's a sweet gigbag, super padded....was just wondering if this was a genuine Ibanez issue, and if so, what it came with? I don't recall these ever being sold individually, and I've never seen another like it. Thx, Mike

Ive never heard of a prestige gig bag before. Im not a prestige nut, but I think its just a embroidered bag. If its a good price, you should still get it, still cool and everything.

Thx you! Now I know it's real. I paid $25 for it and it's really really nice. Why does Ibanez Japan have such cooler stuff?

If you Google 'Ibanez EGK5PR' you will find all the other sites that have these gig bags for sale however they are all in Japan I think.

Ain't that the truth?!? I certainly don't want to end up with a" Stir a Slice."

Re: Is this a legitimate Ibanez Prestige Gigbag?

Rich and some of the other members will know this. A few months ago, there was a seller on eBay listing Jems. The item description was translated into very bad and broken English. In the guitar specs area at the bottom of his listing, it said Stir a Slice. We all thought that this guy was selling Chibanez junk via the old bait-and-switch method. Rich confirmed that he is an authorized Ibanez vendor. Nevertheless, we all had a good laugh over it. You may be able to do an advanced ebay search that includes item description, and type in Stir a Slice--he may have more on there.

Yeah--that was a classic, wasn't it? I'll have to check and see if there are any up on eBay again.
