UK Prices for B+W Swirled RG and JS2-PRM !!!

I see that 'the Ibanez Store' in the UK is getting in one of each of the Black+White Swirled RG's(the type that was shown as a Prototype at NAMM) and the 'Alumiboy' JS2PRM, they're not cheap though!

The RG is really nice but it's going to be £1250 while the JS2PRM is going to be a hefty £3600!!!!!!!!!

I'd love one of the swirled RG's (model number is qouted as RG20051,but whether that's correct is another thing!) but I'm wondering if it's just a swirled 1570. That would mean that the paint-job is costing you around £770!!!!

They've also got a bit about the Giger RG and it reckons it's a neck-through Prestige RG. Hmmmm............

It says on the site that the pictures are only 'mock-ups' and may not be fully representative of the released guitars.
Check the site out. I think it's 'www.Ibanezstore.co.uk' or something like that.

If that isn't right go to the 'Ibanezregister' homepage and it's linked on there.

Cheers!!!!!!!

Re: UK Prices for B+W Swirled RG and JS2-PRM !!!

I don't think anyone's quite sure yet.
The only one that's actually been seen 'in the flesh' was the one they had at the NAMM show and it was commented on that it looked like a Japanese swirl.

I should think they'd be a bit cheaper in the U.S. than they will be in the U.K. for sure though.

Not keen on it to be honest. Especially for the price! Seeing one in the flesh might be slightly different I suppose. The prices are just silly.

The swirled RG doesn't look in person either IMHO. Saw it at the Musikmesse in Frankfurt last week. The swirl looks dull and boring.

Yeah, now i've had a good look at it it's quite obviously a photoshopped version of the one that was shown at NAMM.They've put a set of the normal pickups on instead of the lovely swirled ones (thought they were a bit too good to be true,lol).It's definitely the same swirl.

Until they're actually produced it's difficult to know what they'll be like exactly i suppose.

The Giger RG has caught my interest because of its price though. A Prestige Neck-through RG for £750 !!!? I'm just hoping it's not a Korean RGT42 with a custom graphic. That would be terrible, the first Korean 'Prestige' RG!!!!! It doesn't even bear thinking about (oh please no!)

I think it's strange that his art is on a guitar with an Edge Pro II bridge (Korean then?). Seeing in person was a bit of a let down, I had hoped the would have carved into the body, not just painted (photocopied) it.

Re: UK Prices for B+W Swirled RG and JS2-PRM !!!

That's not good !!! An Edge-Pro II you say ? Nasty.

I agree about the finish, you'd think something as cool as a Giger finish would at least be airbrushed on.

'Fettouhi'.Did the one you saw have a 'Prestige' logo on the headstock?
