More hard tails please

Even though I just got my first Ibanez with a tremolo bridge, and loving it to bits, I'd really like to see a wider selection of hard tail models. Unless there's something I don't see, it would be dead easy to just not route out some examples with tremolo cavities, and voilą, you have the hard tail model.

Just yo encourage you, I will buy an RGT320Z RRB with a fixed bridge the moment it's announced - although I guess it'll be called the RGT320F then

Re: More hard tails please

Congrats on getting your first Ibanez. Homebake is correct about the 1451 but of course you can also experience the magic with a little guitar known as the PGM401. Mmmm, sunbursty...

Re: More hard tails please

Both the RG1451 and PGM401 are looking good. Still, it would be nice with a wide selection of hard tails. I'd like to have a choice of finishes, woods, pickups, inlays etc.. E.g. a PGM401'ish guitar with flame top, no F-hole graphics, shadow shark fin inlays and open DM pickups with black bobbins would interest me greatly...

I realize that Ibanez traditionally is a very trem-oriented marque, but why not offer more fixed bridges? Good for Ibanez, good for us. I'm not suggesting losing any trem models, of course, and not complaining, just airing the thought

Re: More hard tails please

I love my RGA321. Too bad the fixed bridge RGA is no longer available. The bridge on the RG1451 looks cool, but the colors suck and you don't get a case with it. Gig bags are worthless

Now we're talking, Jack! It's, uhm... very blue (maybe I'll be ready for blue finishes eventually), but on an absolute scale that's a beauty. Not easy to find - seems like you have to stand by, ready to snap up he odd hard tail that takes your fancy

Less than a year. Bought it on the 'bay last year for about $600 USD. I've haven't had the guts to remove the headstock from the neck yet.

EDIT: Why do you ask? Hoshino bringing back USA customs maybe?

Re: More hard tails please

Yeah I agree, what a great deal for 600. That's one hell of a good looking guitar, I didn't realize that even existed. I love Ibanez hardtails!
