Hi Guys, I'm willie, my first post here and I'm glad that I have found this thread.
I have looked on this websites page on 'Ibanez 7 string guitars' that aren't UV models and I noticed that Ibanez Japan have a lefty RG1527 available, but it's only available in Galaxy Black, now the 1 thing that ticks me off about Ibanez is that they make awesome guitars and some are leftys, but they give us lefties much lesser available options and it is pure discrimination and I don't care how you put it, ALL Ibanez models should be available to ALL guitarist reguardless of being a lefty or righty guitarist.
Now I'm gonna have the nightmare of trying to ask The Ibanez Suppleer in the UK to try and order me a RG1527L (Lefty) from Ibanez Japan all because that Ibanez is too lazy to get off their carcus' to open their eys and see that lefty players do want a 7 string RG or UV and that it is not just in Japan that they want them, it's world wide that lefties wnat a 7 string with a tremolo and that Ibanez can deliver that if they get off their butts and make them.
Now as far as I'm concerned, it's about bloody time that Ibanez stopped being so damn lazy and blatanetly ignorant towards lefty guitarists and offer all US lefties more guitars with more finish choices. and when I say that, I know 2 other lefty players that are looking for a lefty 7 string the same as myself, so there's another 3 lefty guitarist to add to the list of wanting a lefty 7 string, plus I know of another lefty i holland that would very much appreciate being able to get a lefty 7 string, so there's another 4 altogether, OH!.. I almost forgot, I know a right handed guitarist that plays a lefty guitar and he's peeved because he can't find an ibanez lefty 7, so there's another person that wants a lefty 7 string model, How's that for you?
If I seem peeved, you better believe I am, I have went through at least 200-300 hourse of internet searchs trying to get a lefty 7 sting RG and I'm at the point that I would like to walk into Ibanez HQ and speak to the damn management myself asnd ask them to make a lefty 7 string model that is available EVERYWHERE!
Now whatever you guys are willing to do to get correspondence to Ibanez to reuqest a lefty 7 string, count me in and I'll also be submitting the names of the other lefty guitarists I know of that want a 7 string also.
In the Mean time, I'll be calling The Ibanez Distributor for the UK tomorrow to ask if they can possibly order me a RG1527L from Ibanez Japan and if not, then Ibanez are really gonna hear me because I'm sick and tired to the back of my God damn stomch of all the righty favourite BS!
Now I feel better getting that all out of my system
Let me know what you guys have in mind Astrocreep.
Take care everyone and I appologise about the slight venting, but I have had enough of getting the runaround by biased guitar companies and enough is enough, it's time that US lefties were given a fair cut of the cake.
See ya soon guys and peace always
