Yeah, it's great that they come with DiMarzios too. Great work, Ibanez!

Re: RGR465M - RG565 test?

If anyone at Ibanez is viewing, PLEASE make these available in the U.S.! This is exactly what I have been looking for! Is there any way we can contact Ibanez to ask them to make these available over here?

A question - it looks like the red one has red dot inlays. Can anyone tell if the blue one has blue inlays? I would assume that it would, but I don't like to assume.

Re: RGR465M - RG565 test?

They definitely look the part.

The Wizard II neck doesn't really bother me in the slightest. I don't mind the profile as long as the fret work and finishing is reasonable.

Edge III is easy enough to replace if it doesn't work for you.

I really hope that this guitar is a test for Ibanez to see if there is a market for a larger release guitar in this configuration. I have a feeling though that the particular store selling these may have just done a spot run exclusively for them.

I hope it isn't though, and that the RGR465M makes it's way around all markets.

Re: RGR465M - RG565 test?

Great for those on a budget,great guitar,it looks the part but........meh.

I'm disappointed,this should MIJ,super wizard,edge trem.

Ibanez please stop making cheap replicas of classic era guitars,it takes the shine outta owning the real thing and it sucks when some thinks you are just playing cheap indo guitar when your not.Congratulations on the pickup selection,lets see more of it.

They did this with the S320DX (540LTD clone) and i feel the same about these as most JEM owners feel about the 555.

Just my opinion and i hope we get a 'real' 565 re-issue in the future.

Re: RGR465M - RG565 test?

I think it's a great idea. Yes, it may be "cheap" and Indonesian, but it's the correct line of action if it is just a small run to test the waters. If these sell well, then hopefully they'll bring these to the global market, and maybe we'll be lucky to see an RG1565/2565/3565 that's MIJ. If they make 500 units at 450 pounds, they'll sell better than 500 units at 1050 pounds. At this point, it's a welcome addition, even if it's limited, to the current line up. It shows Ibanez is listening, to a point.

It could be worse. You could be in my shoes, and only have dreams of a factory lefty RG4/565.

Re: RGR465M - RG565 test?

Kinda meh about this. On the one hand, it's nice to see some color in Ibanez's line, on the otherhand this wouldn't hold a candle to a real 565.

Re: RGR465M - RG565 test?

They're releasing this so they don't have to reissue real 565's. They want you to embrace the Indonesian "goodness". Since the proposed buyer from here never did send me the money for my 565, I guess it stays with me. Enjoy it's blue wonderfullinity.

Bump for this and a "no" from me, the store still has them on "pre-order" status though.
