Talking Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?

[FONT=&quot]Hi all,

I've just joined the Jemsite to poll you all on a VERY EXCITING & realistic possibility.

I live in Tokyo and today I met the grandson of the original Hoshino who is responsible for Ibanez even existing. I put something to him as an Ibanez owner and I need to know how realistic of a demand there is.

So, what I said to him is that I very strongly believe that there is a huge demand for Ibanez Prestige Guitars with Reverse Headstocks. I also said that there's a lot of Ibanez players who'd love to own a Japanese made 7 string with a Reverse Headstock too. Rather than everyone thinking that this is a chance to request some crazy custom shop idea of their dreams, the feedback I'm looking for is this.

How many of you would seriously purchase a guitar with the following specs?
Ibanez Prestige RG, Reverse Headstock, Twin Humbuckers, 5 way switch, 24 frets with volume & tone pots. That's a basic start. Chances are there would be some type of binding & minimalist inlays, but let's worry about that later.

The open ended questions I'd like you to answer are...
1. Flame or Quilt top?
2. Would you buy a 6 string, 7 string or 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?
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.
5. If you did have the choice, Maple or Rosewood fingerboard?

Also, tell us where you are so if it was to happen, we have an idea of which markets are most into the idea. For example, Ohio USA, Turin Italy, Melbourne Australia, and so on.
[/FONT]
[FONT=&quot][FONT=&quot]I'm not making any promises that this will happen. I will simply hand on the feedback that you guys (and girls) leave on here.

Re: Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?

1) quilt if it's AAA or above, flame if it's below AAA
2) both, but if they'd do it at j-custom level and i could only buy one, it'd be a 7 string
3) H/S would be rad - prestige/j-custom level RG565 would be the bomb yo
4) For a change - satin finishes in natural, amber, black, green, ruby, and purple
5) Ebony, again because Ibanez doesn't do it enough, and for inlays the American master m.o.p/abalone shape/style would be stupendous

Re: Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?

Hmm

1) Flame. 99% of ibanez quilt tops are just lame imo. Ive only seen a few good ones. That said, if they managed to make a GOOD quilt top, I would be far more interested in that. IF they can pump USRG quality tops, I would love that...

2) 6. Would prefer multipeice laminate neck as well, with some figure.

3) H/S would be awesome, but not mandatory. H/H works fine too. theres enough H/S/H ibanez's out there imo...

4) Purple, Blue, Red, Violin Burst, and Tigers Eye

5) Maple! MAPLE! MMAAAAPPPLLEEEE!!!!!!!!!!



This... just... ya know, ibanez ... haha

1. Neither. I'm bloody sick of flames and quilts. More solid colors please.
2. 6 string but a reverse headstock 7 would be cool.
3. HSH or HxS.
4. Red, orange, or white.
5. maple board.

I've been admiring your collection of Reverse Headstocks for a while. What a beautiful selection you have, ya lucky boy. I'm very envious.

Re: Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?

Please direct anyone else you know on here who would also be interested to this post so that we can seriously show Ibanez/Hoshino Gakki how in demand these guitars really are. I'm pretty sure the 7 string version will be requested the most. Time will tell.

thank you for you kind words.

just want to add one more thing ( If I'm not asking too much) : I only interested in RG3XXX prestige level, since it's the only level that has 17mm wizard neck today.
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.
