i saw RED! - i love red, more red

as the topic state, I love the color red, but it's harder and harder to find a true red Ibanez. *Aside from a RG170, they're pretty rare. *And no, Magenta, Vampire's Kiss or Maroon Fudge are not enough. *I want true flaming bright red on an upper level RG. *I know this seems simple, but Ibanez is the only brand I can think of that doesn't do Red. *Even Jackson does a red (even though it's a little drab). *Please give it a shot guys

i saw RED!

as beautiful as the 3120 is in Tranparent red, I was just thinking of a flat lacquered red. *You know, like Ferrari Red?! *Perfect lusterous solid red. *I don't know why, but that's one thing I always liked about Stratocasters, you could get that one perfect red with the white pickguard and maple fretboard. *Now if only I could get a guitar with a Fender's color scheme, but with the playability and design features of an Ibanez RG or JEM.

I like bright reds as well. *Fender's Fiesta Red is a personal favorite, as I agree, dark reds just don't match my personality. *I like the brightest red you can get.

I too would like to see more red. A bright red rg550 with maple fretboard and mirrored pickguard. As a side note, Ibanez' reluctance to issue guitars in decent colors is really beginning to bug me. I have bought nearly a dozen ibanez rg guitars this past year ranging from a rg350dx, rg470, 550's, 570's (many) and several rg7620. However I only bought 2 of these guitars new. The others were used. Cost was not the issue. Color selection was. I mean c'mon. Sour apple sparkle, magenta crush, black pearl, titanium ice, new penny, metallic grape!!!!!! These colors are beyond gross and what's worse is that they are the only colors on some models. I personally would like to buy some rg7420's. I don't care that it has the lotrs. I block the trem anyway, I just like the double locking feature so that I don't have to retune after every other song. But I am limited to black pearl and magenta crush. EXPAND the color line!!!! Make a white one and I'll buy 2. If ibanez has deemed there is a sizable market for these gross colors, fine. But some basic colors (red, white, blue etc...) should also be available. *Thoughts...?

I love the 3120 TW, long may the tone zone ring!! The red 3120 is beautiful. I'm thinking bookends here.
