Why no Tele style Ibanez??

Wonder why there is no RG body style tele available from Ibanez. Might look kind of neat.

Actually.............they made one many years ago. Roughly teleshaped body *different enough to avoid law suits* edge tremolo system tele style pickguard. They are somewhat rare but you can find them on **** the model name slips my mind at this point though sorry.

it's called the ballback. It's a great idea, but a really bad looking shape. The regular tele shape that kramer and charvel used looks much better.

the ballback came with ibzusa F-2's if I remember correctly.

That would be cool if they made a super-tele like the super-strat. You know sharper lines, an overall more metal look lol.

Looks ok, but it'd be cooler if it had a sharper lower horn. It's one of the many reason I love Ibanez, ah those sharp body edges.
