(probably) a USA custom graphic!

There's a guitar on ebay that appears to be VERY similar to the "streetwise", but not identical to the one available for viewing at the ibanezregister...with a cool H-H config instead of H-S-H...as the seller only ship in the USA I consider myself out of the game, but, please, a tip for the info if you win! :P

hope that the site sponsors doesn't consider themselves disfavoured by my post...or have they in stock some USCG like this? (if some sponsor have, please, contact me ASAP and let's make a business!!! )

Edit

I think this is a very valid question but I've removed the link to the live ebay auction in accordance with the site rules.

Thanks for your understanding,

Jono

I'm sure it's an original "Streetwise." Just because the configuration is different doesn't mean anything. You could get them set up pretty much however you wanted. I've got several USAC's that differ from the catalog pictures or ones featured on ibanezregister.

taorama, please, compare the art itself to the "official" streetwise graphic...they are very (but not perfectly) similar...

...perhaps a pre-production model?

...or the artist where naturally doing variations on a general theme while painting all those bodies?

You're not going to find any that are absolutely identical. They're (mostly) original artwork. Sure they use the same basic design, but there are going to be differences. I've got two "No Bones About It", and they have the same design, but the details are very different. Same for my "Chopper" and "Grim Reaper". Look at the others on ibanezregister - they're all slightly different. I know there's been talk about some of the artwork being duplicated and then laminated onto each guitar, but at least with the ones I've got, they're original airbrush work (well, Angel's Depart is pencil, but you get my drift).
