Re: Is there a market for a Re-Issue or Re-Working of the X-Ing guitars?
I'd have to say a big "no" to demand on this one really.
Guitarissts didn't take to that sort of kit the first time and I don't see them doing so even now. Even things like the Axe-FX and before that the Line 6 stuff have always met with the reaction that it's not a "hand wired valve amp" etc and I think it's even more the case with guitars.
Guitarists want guitars to look and feel like guitars which is why the Strat, Tele and Les Paul aer still so popular today. I think if Ibanez could maybe take the RG1820X (or whatever the actual designation is) and spruce it up a bit thatmight work, but even then, I'd reckon it's a fringe market.
