RG565 Re-Issue Speculation Thread

Let's start this one early. What with the trend for Ibanez to reissue milestone guitars, what are the odds we'll see an RG565 reissue next year? 1991 was the first year for the RG565, so a 20th anniversary reissue is a natural.

The popularity of the 565 is undeniable. Prices for originals keep going up. I don't think they'd have any problem selling a reissue run. Your thoughts?

Rich, I'd like to go on record as saying that I will take one of each color, should it actually happen. Just let me know when you need the deposit.

If only we could be so lucky for Ibanez to re-issue the 565... I wouldn't be able to control myself.
I would for sure get the re-issue of the EG to match my original

Re: RG565 Re-Issue Speculation Thread

i'm kinda tired of all that reissue thing.
just put it back on regular production with resonable/fair prices, and VOILÁ.
Don't forget our Original Edge trem and nice NEON colors.
RG565 for everyones

This is exactly how I feel too. But I didn't realize that until I read this!

Re: RG565 Re-Issue Speculation Thread

It would be nice to have it as a regular production model, but Ibanez seems to have different business plans. I think they're trying to be progressive with their product line, but they're also trying acknowledge what fan-base there is for the older models with the reissues.

It seems like the reissues have been put out in just enough numbers to satisfy the true vintage fans. The die-hards snap up the first ones out, then the rest sell off slowly until they're all gone. I don't see a lot of posts where guys are saying, "Man, I really wanted a RG550/RG770DX/PGM100RE/etc, but they all sold out before I could get one!" So probably their marketing plan is pretty on-target for these models.

Agreed, and likely for the most part a large number of Ibanez sales now are to people who aren't even aware of those older models.
