Usually I can always find an Ibanez I want and like in my Ibanez USA market catalog, but recently there's a later 2015 addition in Japan's Ibanez catalog that has my eye.
It's the flamed sycamore, chrome hardware AS83 with Super 58s. The neck profile is similar to a 1960 slim taper Gibson neck, but somewhat thicker. My main Ibby is an older AS73 with fattish 1959 profile neck with regular output ACH humbuckers which lack high end clarity but I think the Super 58s should resolve that issue.
A very rough Google US translation of non-English portions of this page is below:

It has become a bluesy and semi-hollow type that strike a classical impression.
AS83 is, John Scofield has become (John Scofield) signature model of the same size, AM83 is, we become a smallish round. I'm happy point also where it has adopted a knob equipped with a non-slip rubber. Rock, blues, jazz, and so on to be active in the almighty, hollow type of guitar is a smoothly entered to able model also anyone who never played. ※ synonymous presence of Ibanez humbucking pickup, it is equipped with a Super 58.
All that being said, it still comes in line after a used MIJ black RG I saw which has original Edge trem and black hardware throughout. When getting guitars/amps/pedals there must be some sort of sane method of narrowing stuff down, but I haven't found it yet.
