Ibanez also re-released the RG1521, so the question is when will we (USA) get the 1521 with maple?

One can dream...

Re: Maple board is Back!!!

I'm guessing we won't see these in the states.
Just like we're not going to see 100 HAM's.
I still want this Samurai RG.

Awwwww, sick. Listen, I'm definitely gonna get my hands on that 2550z with the maple board. That's wonderful news! It's like a souped up 550.

Re: Maple board is Back!!!

I'm still not a fan of the smoke mirror pickguard on the 2550. And I have a black one. Maybe I'll swap the pickguard out someday . . .

Nor me. I'd go with a black guard and white pickups or a white guard and leave the black pickups in there.
