Re: Custom models pics from the Custom Shop?

HEY TAK! , do you think it would be possible to get pictures of mick thomsons custom shop guitars?
they look awesome and he speaks very highly of them at any opportunity. i have a guitar magazine, where he says that his ibanez custom shop guitars are easily the finest guitars he has out of his guitar collection. i think he said he had 90+ guitars aswell!

i know you will be busy and you may have to get permission, so i dont want to put pressure on you, but it would be so cool to see more pictures of his guitar/s.

Re: Custom models pics from the Custom Shop?

Tak,

I know you've talked about not being able to release some of the custom shop pictures, but what about pictures of some of the OLD endorsee guitars? I'm talking about stuff like Jennifer Batten's Egyptian-themed guitar, or some of the customs done for the band Warrant, or Laaz Rockit, or some of the other 80's/90's endorsees? Surely it wouldn't be a problem to share older stuff like that? I'd love to see some of those old, non-production graphics!

That would be cool. Maybe get some pictures of old artist models like Stanley Jordan's custom ibanez (the one with the graphite neck), etc.

I saw them too and one was the "Get it Away" USA Custom but the other one had a unique graphic.
That was couple of years ago now.
Vai's BiaX RG550 was right next to them back then.

OT, JTM45 I don't do 7stringers but that Dino made me jealous.
Great score.

Mr. Hosono,

Any chance of this guitar "540P Nech through Prototype / 2006" making it into production?

Thanks

Re: Custom models pics from the Custom Shop?

We made this 540P as a production prototype for 2007. Hoshino gakki did not like the idea at all. I'm sorry guys.

Re: Custom models pics from the Custom Shop?

Dear Glen, how are you? I'm still lobbying Hoshino Gakki asking them to bring back the locking studs for our Edge Pro unit. Tom Tanaka, Mike Shimada, all the big guys, R&D team guys knows that I'm really pushing for the locking studs.Some guys agreed with me but some are not. They are still very skeptical about the product warranty problems caused by the locking studs as I told you earlier. The good news for now is that they are really considering this Locking studs issue once again. I can't promise you anything right now but something is moving under the surface for sure.
