What would you like to see from our company?
Tak, I think we can expect a huge flood of different requests since you asked this question! I really hope the members here don't see this as a chance to list every last detail of their dream Ibanez. It's great that you did ask, though. Guys -- let's not take advantage of Tak and bombard him with unrealistic requests. Bear in mind that Ibanez have to consider what would sell and be worthwhile building.
Once again, I think the RG550 was always a winning formula. To me it's a real classic Ibanez guitar, and a 7-string version would be wonderful. The RG1527 is a great guitar, but I sure miss that pickguard and the maple board. I guess a stripped down version of the UV is what I would love to see, and I think it could be popular model, just as the RG550 was a popular affordable version of the JEM. Rather than taking a risk on a totally new design for such a small market, it makes sense to me to base it on what's already popular, only with the necessary changes and adaptations to a 7-string.
Reissue the RG770DX!
As far as I know, the RG770DX was discontinued because it was "a production headache". Read the Untold Story. As it's inappropriate to the thread, I won't dwell on this model, as much as I'd like to see another RG770DX available, I can honestly say I doubt it will ever happen. Now, if we were talking about a 7-string version of that guitar, tell me where to sign! RG777, anyone? Dream on.
