So why does the xiphos 6 have a trem and the 7 a hardtail?
good question, huh? my other guitar player was stoked to see the xiphos when it first came out. he almost bought one until i told him ibanez was coming out with a 7 string version. he was set to get it until we found out it was a hardtail. WTF? he ended up getting a custom ESP made. ibanez, i own over 50 guitars and an overwhelming majority are japanese made ibanez's, 4 being pre 2002 prestiges. i personally love rg's, but ibanez has dropped the ball on the weird shaped guys who like trems.
i am sure i am not the only one who feels this way. with as many of the endorsers playing xiphos guitars, please expand the line. i'd love to see a 7 string iceman or destroyer with a trem.
