Re: The ugliest Ibanez

But it's not even an original design?! Oh well, a matter of taste.

It's not ugly, it's awesome.

Maybe not an original design, but if you get your hands on a Rex Bogue doubleneck anyt time soon, let me know...

For me, it's got to be the RVX220. Not pleasing to the eye. --Jason

Re: The ugliest Ibanez

+1 on that V. never liked the look of that one. i don't like the standard Ibanez headstock on the IC200 either. it ruins it for me. i'll take the IC400 any day of week though having the original headstock but it needs the pickguard.
"one mans trash is another mans treasure".
i don't care for that dbl neck. it's cool but nothing that inspires me to play.

I want one too!!! Those things are gorgeous. I love all of Ibanez's 70's guitars, I'd love to get one.

It's a reissue of the '70's Artwood doublenecks. What's not original about it, that Gibson made a guitar with 2 necks first? It's based on the shape that would become the Artist, so the shape, headstock, inlays, layout, etc are all original to Ibanez.

On the price question, these listed at 10 grand, and I don't know what they sell for, or if any are still available. The originals pop up on occasion (there are VERY few of them) in the 3 to 5 grand range.

Re: The ugliest Ibanez

Yeah, I have to agree; I think it's pretty ugly. But I don't like double necks, I always think they look a bit silly and unwieldy.

Re: The ugliest Ibanez

The headstocks are what really kill the appeal, in my opinion.
