Re: Original wizard and edge on non reissues please?
Since I've been playing Ibanez, they've been through so many new designs that never seem to improve on the performance of the Edge. The Edge Zero is a huge reason why I have not picked up one of the new J-Customs in Violet. It's a beautiful guitar, but I'm not spending $2k on a guitar that performs worse than my beat up '91 RG. Bring back the Edge or Lo Pro Edge, please.
As for neck profiles, my understanding has been that Ibanez has switched in favor of increased stability. If this is true, it's a valid reason. But the brand built its name on providing the thinnest, slippery necks you could find. If that changes, I'll stop buying, regardless of how stable the new necks are.
