Your dream Ibanez

Hi fellow Jemsiters, i was wondering if any you have a dream Ibanez guitar, you know a guitar that doesn't exist but you wish Ibanez would build, like if you could get your own signature guitar, how would you spec it?, so if you have one post it here, i'll start with mine:

The shape would be an RG 7 string, with an ash body and flamed maple top finished with a blue color (something similar like PRS whale blue) and a natural finish back with natural binding.

For the neck i'd like a Jem carved flamed roasted maple neck and fretboard, with 24 SS jumbo frets, and mother of pearl small dots with matching headstock, with gunstock oil and wax finish.

Hardware wise would be a Lo Pro Edge bridge with piezo (two output jacks), in a gunmetal grey finish like the Jem 7vsbl, HH direct mounted configuration with a 5 way blade switch, the PUs would be Blaze Custom in the Bridge and Blaze in the neck, in black with black bobbins.

And thats pretty much it, another version would be one with a spalted maple top in natural finish with black binding and hardware.

Re: Your dream Ibanez

Mine would be like a cross between an RG570 and a PGM301.
Basswood body with HSH config.
2001 Super Wizard neck with bubinga stripe.
Maple board with 24 jumbo frets and black dot inlay
There was a time when I would say reverse headstock but I think I'd go standard
Creme pickups: Tone Zone bridge, HS-3 middle, PAF Pro neck.
Tight End R bridge strung with 10's.
Metallic orange finish with matching headstock.

Re: Your dream Ibanez

Fortunately, Ibanez did make my dream guitar. Unfortunately, it was a very limited run and not available in the U.S.

RG7680

27" scale!
Glow in the dark inlays and binding!
Unique finish that no other Ibanez has(correct me if wrong), in two very cool, not black color options!
H-S-H!


the rest of the specs are basically a RG7620, Lo-Pro 7, etc..

Re: Your dream Ibanez

I think I saw my dream guitar in a recent NGD: http://www.jemsite.com/forums/f16/ng...mz-136081.html

That is one of the most beautiful guitars I've ever seen

Re: Your dream Ibanez

I don't think mine would be all that fancy.

RG655 body and and HSH setup in Galaxy Black
Swap out stock pickguard with smoke mirror pickguard
Keep the Air Norton in the Neck, swap in a Steve's Special in the bridge
Unsure yet about the middle pickup, but want something very Stratocasterish (I'm open to suggestions)
Coil tap
Lo Pro Edge tremolo

Everything else the same, except, and here's the difficulty...

Dunlop 6140 frets (from the early JEMs/UVs).

Everything else could be swapped out pretty easily, but refretting a new neck just seems like a waste.

You lucky bastard lol, yeah JS3, 4, 5, 10th, Universe MC, Jem777LNG are all dream Ibanez for me but if Ibanez had a custom shop or if they offered you to make your own signature guitar, how would that guitar be?
