Re: Petition to open a Semi-Custom Shop based upon J.Custom.

So Ibanez just keeps churning out new models with the vine no matter what. The only happy exception is Ikebe j-custom HRG7/2012 , but there's no 7-string.

Re: Petition to open a Semi-Custom Shop based upon J.Custom.

Great idea with semicustomshop, just add a limited run for us lefties.
But please do some markering so that we that are interested can get a chance to order those leftyguitars.
Paoferrofretboard would be awesome

Re: Petition to open a Semi-Custom Shop based upon J.Custom.

This thread has stopped (or never really started) being a petition to Ibanez and has become another "I want my favourie guitar from the custom shop please" thread. Thus I've de stickied it, if there's sufficient interest in the thread, it will keep itself going.

Re: Petition to open a Semi-Custom Shop based upon J.Custom.

For me the options wont do. so sorry, no signing.

The only J-custom i am willing to pay the bucks for would be a Custom 540PII.

I do think this petition is a great idea.
Im verry curious where this will lead to.

Good luck!

Dots on J-Customs for the first time in 6 years. At least we have some choice. They need to add the option to the 7-string line-up now.

Wonder if they've read this thread at Ibanez. Or our hate-on-vine thread:

I would suggest that Ibanez has plenty of experience understanding the guitar market, they have folks whose job it is to understand what actually sells in the stores rather than what overly vocal individuals post about on internet forums.

It's great that you feel passionately about this, but you've said your piece, time to move on...

That'd be quite logical to cater to both of these groups, not just the vine lovers then.

Repetition is the mother of wisdom, sometimes at least.

As to Ibanez, adding more models with different fingerboard patterns (which they did) is more of a "Moving on" than being stuck with the vine as the only option for 6 years on end, isn't it?

Re: Petition to open a Semi-Custom Shop based upon J.Custom.

I've never understood that there's no Ibanez Custom Shop.

I mean this would have to be a bonanza for the company, wouldn't it?

I have at least 8 guitars and basses in mind that I'd like to order...

Maybe there's a saboteur in the management

Who keeps slapping the vine inlay onto everything to drop the sales.
