Not enough reverse headstocks!

I've got a major fetish for reverse headstocks, and I honestly don't think Ibanez make enough of them (which is probably why most of my guitars are either ESP, Jackson or Agile Interceptors).

The one guitar I have lusted for for ages is the Chris Broderick signature. Are there any current Ibanez models similar to it? I'm looking for a reverse headstock, Floyd Rose and a quilted/flamed maple finish, ebony fretboard and a maple neck. The current models I found (121 and 321) are not the greatest in quality, and they lack the paint job that I like.

Can anyone recommend any models that I could look at?

(Anyone in the UK selling one that matches this description? )

Re: Not enough reverse headstocks!

I TOTALLY AGREE!!! I've been shopping for a reverse headstock guitar for a while...but I'm still really hoping that Ibanez makes a reverse headstock s series! I've even toyed with the idea of getting an RGR465M and putting the neck on one of the 24-fret s-series guitars :P :P :P

Re: Not enough reverse headstocks!

What is the appeal of a reverse headstock? (Just curious)

Personally, it's a 100% aesthetic thing for me It just looks so much more badass in my eyes. However, I have read that on guitars without locking nuts, it makes the higher strings easier to bend because there's less string to bend. I haven't played a non-locking rev headstock yet so I can't confirm or deny that :P

Re: Not enough reverse headstocks!

The only guitar I know of that's close to this list is the '89 (pre-production) USA custom, UCEW-FMNT, but the board is rosewood.

I think there was a reverse head J-custom with an ebony board, but I have no idea what model it was.

'89 UCEW-FMNT:

What kind of neck pickup is that? Looks like a single width humbucker.

Re: Not enough reverse headstocks!

I heard a rumor that the RG3XXV (3rd quarter RG 25th anniversary release) will have a reverse headstock.

I saw it mentioned on another forum, not sure how true it is. Cannot find a pic anywhere (supposedly there were pics but they've been removed).

Yeah the RG3XXV is like the RGR465M they released in limited quantities/countries in 2010. You can still find the pics on Ibanez's website (lol...) except the US one haha...I'm really hoping they decide to change it a bit cause of the leak and make it a Premium model! I'd snap that up in a heartbeat :P

I'm not sure, It's not my guitar unfortunately. It's looks like a Seymour duncan "Li'l Screamin' Demon" or a "Li'l 59"

Re: Not enough reverse headstocks!

Hi everybody,

I gotta tell ya, I agree on all counts!
I recently bought an RGR321 and an RGR465 for I really liked the Slipknot's Mick Thompson's so I bought a black and a candy apple reverse headstock (no Mick Thompson's available near here) and copin' with basswood bodies instead of mahoganies.

Neck pickup in the pic over there I too think must be a Seymour Duncan's, for it's quite resembling the ones on Iron Maiden's Janick Gers' Strats.

More reverse headstocks!

PS: Dres...
Yeah, I got it: I love the S series, and those "Fenderish" not-so-sleek necks (you know, I'm a bass player, so I really need a 25,5" scale, at least, and I'm not scared of thick necks at all) reverse'd be great man

Cheers,
Wallace
