I don't get the jack... looks like a nice axe though, I like that its 24 frets.

Interesting take on a S series, thicker body. I like the top and kinda dig the jack. I wonder if that is just a new body for his signature guitar or if Ibanez plans to make it into a new series?

Very nice, although I'm not completely sold on the jack design. There are more elegant ways of getting a similar placement without taking a chunk out of the body.

That color is great but the initial pics with that green color were so much nicer. Wonder if that's his normal sig and just the prem is red

Looks like a regular SA body, just with that newer pseudo-JEM jack placement. Needs a maple board and that green finish his first one had, then it would tempt me. lol

Yeah, it's a SA standard body.
The jack cavity is odd for an Ibanez, but it was done before by Yamaha and i love it.
Both Premium and Prestige versions will be red color and i agree the green one is sexier.

Woah, sweet. Original Edge is awesome. Is it just me or is Ibanez finally listening to fan demands and bringing back the Original edge for their stuff?

BTW, did they have a retail price for the premium?

Hi there!

That's a nice output jack solution, but sorry to inform this is not an Ibanez original idea as Yamaha started using this on their guitars since the late 80s to the early 90s (SE, RGX, RGZ series).
Patent may be outdated now...

Cheers, JPB

I still think Hamer had it right with the input jacks on the Centuras.. also the guitar Charvel built for Guthrie Govan has nearly the same thing.. a strat style jack on the side of the body.
