is there such a j custom?

hey guys, ive been a user of the rga321 for some time, and felt it was time to get her a sister with a floating bridge

Ive been looking at the various j customs discussed here and was wondering if there is a model which is basically like the 8670 in blue but without the middle pickup. I'm really a H-H kinda guy and the single coil hinders me due to my picking style.

In short, Im wondering if you ibanez gurus can point me to a j custom with H-H config, ebony board, vine, and preferbly if it came in the tb colour which i think would really match my rga321 in spb. Oh and i know this is purely preference, but the new models with the Edge Zero bridge would be out for me.

So far the closest i can think of is the RG-ART which looks sweet as hell but is even rarer to find..

You could always just sink the single coil into the body if it gets in your way, like I did on my 1570

If I remember correctly, there was RG 8620 or 8520.
That one... no middle pickup.

8520 in Trans Blue or a 1702 in Marine Blue. Neither have ebony or vine inlay though.

The closest you'll get is the RG8520, which has a rosewood board with offset dot markers. I believe they were only produced in 2004. Here's mine:

Holy damn, that's one good looking guitar.

the 2009 lineup allso includes two jcustoms without the midle singlecoil pickup
the 8420 ZD with Seymour Duncans and the 8420 ZE with EMG active pickups

I happen to own a 8420 ZE and it's one mean metal machine!
