[size=1]Yep, that trem is completely reversible. I think ALL trems ought to be made that way, so as not to require a different part for righties, lefties, AND K-7s. Saves money and hassle.
That's actually a rather good idea. Cosmetically the other hole isn't really the greatest thing, but you could ship the 6-string version with a U-bar as well for those who are bothered by the cosmetics, and by having a completely reversable bridge, it'd lessen production costs for lefties...
At any rate, i'm a right handed guitarist who plays lefty about as well as i breathe underwater, but i still wanted to both voice my support for the lefties on the site, and congradulate ibanez for a job well done in introducng a few new lefty models. good job, guys.
By the way, i actually rather like the WII neck as opposed to the original- the original wizard on the RG i used to own was hard on my wrist- between bad posture (which i remidied within a month or two, but by then it was already too late) and the paper thin neck, i gave myself tendonitis within about 2 months of getting the thing. Sold it for a RG-7620 (with a girthier neck) and the problems cleared right up.
anyway, you guys at ibanez absolutely rock. keep up the good work.
