The only good thing about the boring-ness of the 2020s is that you have no remorse customizing the heck out of them!
Which is exactly why mine is totally stripped, and in the process of getting a flame maple top put on it, and already had DiMarzios in it.

Todd...maybe you've shared this elswhere and I overlooked it, but would you mind sharing who's doing the work, and give us a ball park on what it's going to cost? *What are your plans for the finish...natural, stain color? *TIA.

By the way, I know you all love the purple, but I prefer the Dark Brown Sunburst.
I am so surprised to finally see a neck thru Ibanez that's gonna be in the states that's a regular production model!
IT'S SO COOL!
WHEN DOES IT COME OUT I MUST KNOW!!!

Possibility you'll se a small quantity in late this month/early next, but the first real shipment should be mid/late April/May.

I ordered my RGT about two weeks ago, after a follow up by our regional rep, I was told that the guitar would arrive in 30 - 60 days. They come without case, so.....go figure. :loco:

Out of curiosity what is the main difference of violet chrome hw on the RGT 3120 TDB verses the chrome hw on the UVPBK777? *Is it as the name states - it has a ting of violet? *It is hard to tell from the photos. *
Out,

To me, the Violet Chrome appeared to be more of a powder-coated or brushed chrome, whereas the chrome on the UV hardware is shiny, polished chrome. *It really didn't appear to have much a Violet tint to it, but I guess the brushed finish could make it appear that way.

You sure you have a Crystal there?!?! LOL

VC is about halfway between chrome and cosmo, it's is a cosmo finish, just very light. Highly reflective like chrome and cosmo, no brushed or satin about it. But it looks like the richest chrome you ever saw! You can't even tell, it just looks like killer chrome, till you put it up against regular chrome. I can see that it'll probably have the wear and corrosion associated with cosmo though.

It's about time they came out with a Purple one of these. *The red was a good move, but purple is better. *

Damn, Rich...you're right! *What am I thinking about that's kind of powder coated? *For some reason, I had that associated with the RGT...I forgot the CP was Violet Chrome! *I must have finally lost it. *
