Looks like the same J Customs Ibanez puts out every year.

Double yawn....

Re: New J-custom RRG6

Did they get those colors right out of the Martha Stewart catalog or what...

Re: New J-custom RRG6

I'm so glad some of you guys seem to have such boring taste in guitars. I love the solid colour ones in yellow and white. I reckon these are exactly the guitars Ibanez should be making.

High level, functional guitars in a bold colour and I'd rather be seeing these than another flametop guitar in see trough black.

I'd like to see the limited J-customs get colour changing paint, or a faded sparkle or something out there, but on this basic formula of great bolt on superstrat. It doesn't need to be overly complicated

Re: New J-custom RRG6

The lemon one is sweet,meestursparkle has one on the bay at the moment and his pics do it much more justice.It gave me severe gas but im all out of $$$ at the mo. X(
Only 6 made too i've heard. I love JC's including these,but i would like to see them push the boundries a l'il myself! How about a 24 fret S with the vine and reverse headstock!
Keep in mind though these are store special editions not Ibanez line specials.

It's just another RG with a gaudy vine inlay. Glad you love the white one, where else does Ibanez have a white RG shaped guitar with a vine? That's definately something they should mass produce and sell all over. Maybe with gold hardware.

Re: New J-custom RRG6

Kind of funny that people would yawn over these guitars but then fall over themselves for a JEM7VWH...

I'd love to see more pictures of the white guitar. I don't think the pics are doing it justice but it appears to be trans white over flamed maple. Definitely a very cool idea.

Re: New J-custom RRG6

Nothing that spectacular here. I know this sounds strange but I would love to get the white RR5 with gold hardware. I know it'll resemble a Jem, but I personallly couldn't play a Jem without having chops near the Vai's level. I'm sure I'm not the only one that would like to have a Jem without it being a Jem.

Everytime I see an Edge Zero it just looks cheap to me.
