So Excited...Special Run Prestige RG...pre-pre NGD

So we all know you can't get a true custom Ibanez unless you are a signed artist, but I am about to get the next best thing! Im in a FB group called Ibanez RG series Fans and we were able to put together a special one off run of Prestige RG's. Ibanez is really strict on the options but we came up with something great I think. We payed homage to the 3120 with several twists. Anyway, here is the teaser pic we got back from Ibanez on how its going to look.

sthing like pale sun !

sorry for my bad English, I can't really explain this well
In French it's called "oxymore" : two terms with opposite meaning

But if firstly insane, why not poetic ?

It must be a very large group if you could get 12 buyers to agree on a spec

Is that retail? That relates to a list price of $2133.33, which I would consider high in relation to a 652KKB which is basically the same guitar, veneer top HH.

Thats the sale price, which is great compared to the other special runs that have recently sold for 1799 from some other sources. Yes its more than a stock model, but I fully expected it to be.

As long as you're happy with it. The best thing about a prop model is there is no MSRP restriction, and if you're getting no "group discount", you're not getting a "good deal" at all from whatever dealer you're getting the order thru.

Re: So Excited...Special Run Prestige RG...pre-pre NGD

Very cool!

So is the minimal required number of identical guitars 12 or 6?

Is it a Japanes dealer like Ikebe or Ishibashi?

This is a US dealer. We are looking at 15 of them at the moment.
