RGA72TQME

Anyone have any in hand or in inventory shots of this 2011 model? It seems that many of the online retailers began to get these in late last month (at least some of them have changed their status to "in stock"), but all I've been able to dig up are the Ibanez.com illustrations.

I did also run accross one 2011 NAMM shot which looked considerably different in terms of the color of the finish compared to the artist renderings on the official site. I'm just trying to get an accurate representation of that this guitar actually looks like at the end of the assembly line...

Thanks for any help.

The only pics I can find are here:

Unless the guitar is black or white, the actual finish almost always brighter in person. The blackberry sunburst looks almost brown in stock pic and bright red in actual pic.

That's the NAMM shot I was referring to. Yes, much, much brighter and "redder" in this pic than the "official" website illustration. I prefer the more muted tones, but I'm guessing I'm in for a let-down. That's not to say that its not beautiful in the brighter presentation, just not what I was looking for.

My understanding is that the NAMM show guitars are pretty much production samples as opposed to prototypes (prototypes being subject to some degree of change), so I'm confident that what we see at NAMM is what we will get.

Hope to see more soon...
