The 540PII Reissue suggestion - Facebook users

I'm not sure this is the right place for that, so sorry if this is wrong, I'll delete my post.
I'd like to see a reissue of the 540PII model, and I believe I'm not alone. This model only lasted for 2 years and didn't met a serious success back then.
So I might be wrong, but I don't think Ibanez will ever reissue the 540PII at a prestige level, but there are more possibilities with the new Premium Line.
Anyway, I've been "liking" Ibanez facebook page in order to communicate with them, and created a Facebook page for the 540PII reissue.
This page needs 540pII fans and other administrators, so it would hopefully grow and show Ibanez the guitar deserve a reissue or a inspired model.
I have posted pictures of the 540 I have/had, and also 3D models I did.
You're invited to post your suggestions, opinions, pictures etc..., and obviously ignore this!
Thanks!!!
Some CG I did for this purpose, which only reflects my very own guitar fantasm:

I had one built just recently like your purple mock up and I love it!
I would definitely buy a production one in a heartbeat.

Liked and Shared.

This might get me to buy a new Ibanez again. Except they will likely scuff up the specs, but even then...

Thanks guys! I'll upload different ideas in 3D, and will take any suggestion as seriously as possible ^^. If we can't have it IRL, at least, I can do them in 3D!

I would like an ebony fretboard, alder body, black with orange ghost flames and matching headstock colour.
These guitars are pure metal, so the new colours should reflect that. Of course I still want one in every bright colour also. ;-)

WOW! Awesome job
I would love to see one with a natural flame maple top.
I would love to see a reissue for the Premium line.
I dont think they would have a problem selling them.

The PII would fit straight into the series with the Xiphos. I'm surprised we've seen some of the new "X-series" models without seeing this guitar make a return!

Great idea. Used to have one years ago (which I miss). Only suggestion I could ad is lose the pickguard.
