and if.... it did not against their any rule, the 98-99 super wizard neck spec is the best for it.
yeah...we can only hope.

but I sincerely thank you for your effort bringing this up to the PIC at Hoshino gakki.
I feel the same way. My 540Pii has the same neck and it's magnificent. I would ask for that neck for sure. I actually mentioned to him yesterday about how amazing that neck is. All I can tell you is that I'll do my VERY BEST!!! It's in the best interest for many of us.

Re: Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?

If it were available in a blue flame maple/maple fingerboard/off-set fret markers/H+H p-up
configuration/no binding.
And a reverse headstock 7 string...?
You bet!!

Re: Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?

Would I buy a reverse headstock prestige?

Yes, without a doubt. I don't care about configs as long as it's reversed. But then a solid black HH would be nice for sure.

Problem is, the OP gave only two options for the top: Flame or Quilt maple. To me, highly-figured tops = transparent or natural finishes.

Now, on the other hand, if he'd included non-figured options... e.g. "just maple"... I would've assumed solid colors were on the table as well. Personally, I love black guitars... especially matte/flat black finishes like on the RGD's.

However, I'd never put a solid finish over a flame or quilt top.

Re: Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?

Absolutely, hells yes to the original question of reverse headstock, 2 humbuckers, 5 way switch, one volume one tone.

as for the other list:

1. Flame or Quilt top? Neither, I think both are generally quite tacky.
2. Would you buy a 6 string, 7 string or both? 7 string, multiple, if it were a plain color finish and not flame/quilt top.
3. On a 6 string version, would you prefer a Humbucker with Single spaced pick up in the neck or the standard Twin Humbuckers? question not applicable to me.
4. Colour? I'm leaving this kind of open. Of course they will all be transparent. Please keep it kind of basic like, Red, Blue, Purple, Green, Orange, etc. Feel free to post photo/photoshop colour ideas. If the bodies were say mahogany, I think a semi-transparent dark red would look evil as ****. That or your basic black, red, and white options would be enough for me to jump on board.
5. If you did have the choice, Maple or Rosewood fingerboard? Both, but all of my current guitars have rosewood fingerboards, so I'd lean more towards that.

I'm in Calgary, Alberta, Canada.

Re: Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?

1. Flame or Quilt top? No thanks, they’ve been done to death now. Solid finishes or something more adventurous is where I think Ibanez should be focusing.

2. Would you buy a 6 string, 7 string or both? I’d be interested in both.

3. On a 6 string version, would you prefer a Humbucker with Single spaced pick up in the neck or the standard Twin Humbuckers? Standard on an Ibanez is HSH, that’s what I’d be looking for.

4. Colour? I'm leaving this kind of open. Of course they will all be transparent. Please keep it kind of basic like, Red, Blue, Purple, Green, Orange, etc. Feel free to post photo/photoshop colour ideas. Swirled, graphic, racing stripes, or solid colours. I’d prefer solid gloss black to a lot of the flame maple finishes we see today. When I see “reverse headstock” I think “metal” and black is the right colour for a metal guitar.

5. If you did have the choice, Maple or Rosewood fingerboard? It would depend on the colour of the guitar.

Re: Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?

Guys, this is great. It's very cool to know that some like a Trans Top & some like a Painted Top. Well should they go ahead and do this, the conversation we had is that Hoshino may well just do a short run of 50 to 100 world wide as a test run. I still can't believe that they would be skeptical about the popularity of Reverse Headstocks, but whether its that or a manufacturing issue, this will hopefully help to convince them at last.

As a progress update, I can tell you all that he has replied to me and is looking forward to the results.

Oh, and about the Painted Tops it's an interesting fact. In my eyes, I thought Guitarists who'd want to buy exclusive instruments like this would prefer the class of nice Trans Tops to standard paint.

Re: Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?

My absolute preference would be a reverse headstock 7, no inlays (or very small dots on the very edge), straight black gloss finish with a white/cream/abalone binding, two humbuckers, single volume, single tone, 5 way switch.

I should've also mentioned that I would be more interested in a hardtail option.

Re: Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?

1. RG shape, Quilt maple top, mahogany body, and cosmo hardware.
2. 7 string with "edge 7" not lo-pro not edge pro no edge zero, ONLY EDGE 7 in cosmo.
3. H-S (if S is a hum, blaze single is not a hum and will be noisy) or else H-H. 1 vol, 1 tone.
4. Blue-violetish see through
5. Rosewood or ebony, with offset dots and blackmore scalloped fretboard, 17" radius, 24 fret.
Am I asking too much?
Location Norway.

Re: Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?

1. Flame or quilt top - Flamed with different colors, not just VV
2. 6 or 7 - Both, I'd take either
3. config - On both a 6 and 7 I'd sure love an H/S config but H/H will suffice.
4. Color - If solid, anything but black, depends a lot on the fretboard choice.
5. Fretboard - ebony as first choice, then maple. Just make the dots abalone offset.

FWIW, love the reverse headstocks and I too would like to see more of them, just quit painting them black all the time. I would also request to bring back the lo-pro. I know that won't happen but I've gotta throw it out there. More super wizzard profile'd necks, and direct mount pickups.... No more pickup rings.
