new 2012 prestige rgs with edge pros???

about a week ago i was on the ibanez website and i could've sworn i saw new prestige rgs with edge pros, but i just checked today and they're gone! no where in sight!

they looked like the discontinued 1451s but with the edge pro.

was i hallucinating or what?

I love how the Edge Pro doesn't feel like a Floyd when you rest your hands on it. The LoPro did too. But not as ergonomic.

I have the Pro flush with the body.

Re: new 2012 prestige rgs with edge pros???

The RG you are referring to is the RG1450, its not available in North America or Japan, but if you set your region to Asia in the Ibanez website you can still see them.

The one thing interesting about them is the nut. For this model, there is a volute behind the nut, but the bolt for the the nut is a thru-hole, you can see the bolt from the back (similar to the way they used to attach the nut on the Lo-Pro's). All my older Edge Pro's have a volute but you can't see the holes from the back, they look to be screwed in from the top.

Strange, eh?

It never fails...

Every time I see a model that I really covet, it's not available here in the U.S.

Figures...

You can see them if you pick China as your country.
Pretty sweet! I'm hoping Edge Pro makes a comeback.

Hell--I'm stoked that the OE has made a comeback! While the EP is a great trem, I'll take an OE over that every time.

Re: new 2012 prestige rgs with edge pros???

Yeah, it's enough to piss you off. Sure, we have the J-Custom, which is a hell of a nice guitar... but it's too ornate for me. I love looking at the Japanese Ibbys. They always have the coolest models. I lived there for 2 years, but I was in the military at the time and always flat broke, so I couldn't afford to buy any guitars what with the exchange rate and all.

The J custom can be ordered through your local distributor.
it depends on how dare your distributor taking some risk on stocking this kind of thing.
in this suck economy, it's not easy to sell USD 3k guitar.

We have some J custom model here ( indonesia).
the distributor is having some balls to stock this maybe 1 or 2 only, which surprised me a lot.

Re: new 2012 prestige rgs with edge pros???

I haven't played a J-Custom but I'm sure they're top notch in quality. Looks-wise the only ones I really like are the RG Paints like what Freak owns. I'm not really huge on quilts and such.
But, yeah. Too rich for my blood - even when I have the money.
