My new prestige logo idea.

I know I saw in this other thread that some people where saying how the prestige logo leaves the headstock looking blank, I agree. So I had this idea the other day for the classic check logo and here it is:



What do you guys think?

Re: My new prestige logo idea.

That's what you'd think Ibanez would do to begin with. Instead this seemed to happen:

*Ibanez marketing dept.*

Manager guy: Ok, we need a new logo for our prestige line. It should be really cool and stuff, and highly eye catching.

Guy #1: How about we just put the word "prestige" in plain bold text with no capitals right next to the regular logo?

Guy #2: That's a great idea! but we should get rid of the swoosh because it looks cheap.

Janitor who happened to be walking by: But the swoosh is the only eye catching thing about the logo!

Guy #3: Screw you Phil, go back to your corner

Guy #1: We should also add sparkly stuff to make it all shiny so it's impossible to see our logo, but people will still be blinded by it's awesomeness!

Manager: That's all we need. Great work people!

Yes I totally agree. The mirror logo is really annoying. It actually is keeping me from buying a newer ibanez, I just hate them, especially with the rest of the logo black. They should really, really get rid of it, it's so unattractive. I just like the all White logo like on my old square heel RG.

Re: My new prestige logo idea.

I like that very well. Simple, yet effective. IMO the body styles especially RG are a dime a dozen. Not that I dislike them, quite the opposite actually. So many different brands have something like that. The swoosh and pointy headstock combo are probably as famous and more recognizable as Ibanez than the rest of the guitar. The smallest of things can make or break a guitar and you would think if anything, the lower end would have the prestige style headstock format and the high end would have the swoosh. It's a loud statement.

They should make IBANEZ parallel to tuning machines.
It always looked to me like somebody glued it in a wrong position.

Re: My new prestige logo idea.

TOTALLY agree with IBNZ-RG and Magical Muffin (about the impossibility for the logo to be read because of the mirror shining). what Ibanez guys should understand is that we NEED to have the people in the last row of the venue READ the word "Ibanez" in our guitar headstock, and for those at a mile distance to see the swoosh. that would be the only Prestige for us. and the only way for it to be read by distance is to be white on black, or black on white, or black on yellow or whatever CONTRASTING colors. the swoosh is like our own identity shown to the world, it's like to say " yeah i'm an Ibanez guys, so what?" in a Gibson/Fender/PRS filled world.

SO PLEASE STOP THE MIRROR CRAP AND BRING BACK THE MONOCHROME SWOOSH AND LOGO AS IT WAS IN THE GOLDEN ERA!

(and thanks to you folks for insisting on the logo discussion, that's very important to us Ibanez freaks. now let's make Ibanez guys understand this. never stop it till they do it)

I like that headstock a lot. The logo looks way better than the prestige logo they use now.
