Reverse Prestige headstock RG's anyone?
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="]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.
