I'm very pleased Ibanez is moving in this direction. It seems they're willing to give it a try and see what happens. I would be a hell of a lot happier if this was a 621, made in Japan (as I suspect this 421 is Korean), with the super wizard neck instead of the wizard II. And I assume it has the AANJ.
But if this sells well, and I think it will, then Im sure we'll see many more fixed bridge RG's in the future. (How about a Prestige mahogany 6-string RG with fixed piezo and flame top...Oooo...)
edit: My RG7-421 was japanese and so wasnt the 7-420, so maybe this 421 is too. But those RG7's may have been exceptions because looking at the RG line everything from 470 down is Korean.
