New Model Ibanez Destroyer?

Hey guys,

I was just looking through my local guitar shop when I come across a very nice looking Destroyer hanging off a rack. Not sure what model number, but it didn't appear to be used, and upon searching through previous production models I couldn't find anything that looked like it. It is quite a dark, shiny red with a thick laquer finish, dot inlays, fixed bridge, black Ibanez pickups and I'm pretty sure it had an AANJ. Anyone know if this is a previous destroyer model or if they have released a new one for 2007? I'm thinking of buying it next year sometime and I can always ask the store, but I thought I'd try you guys just incase

Are you sure it's not the X series that was put out a few years ago? IIRC, they did a Destroyer and an Iceman and the bodies were slightly undersized and I remember seeing pix of the Destroyer X that looked kind of like what you described.

It would be awesome if they did an another Destroyer run next year, but I doubt it.

It would be awesome if they did it right. I miss my old Destroyer and none of these reissues have been worth getting excited over

Yeah, that's the one.

Not a "real" Destroyer? Is it worth buying?

Or perhaps that's not it. I'm gonna have to check again. I just purchased a new Jem, so I've got other things on my mind
