They did it again...

I just compared the 2009 Ibanez Prestige products for the U.S. with the German product line, after I realized that we can`t purchase the new 770 reissue down here.
I was stunned: We `re missing out on all the cool models. You can purchase 2 (in words: two) different RGs with maple fretboard in Germany and instead of reissue models or RGs with Dimarzios there is a ton of guitars with the same ibz pups and edge zero (infact it`s the same model with several serial numbers and a bunch of ugly colours)[and I am talking only about the Prestige series].
What is this all about? Why do we need a different product line? That doesn´t make sense to me. Especially as the maple fretboard seven string is a very sought after instrument here too.

Re: They did it again...

same thing i was complaining about in another thread somewhere. European market doesn't sport the new orange w/maple board RG nor the white w/maple board 7. it's a shame... do they think those won't sell here?

Re: They did it again...

hehe, hey Tak, we know it's not your fault but well, that's my only complaint about the new line of guitars. i'm so happy maple boards got back, and i'm sure those models, and others will be soon available world wide. and i'm positive they will sell tons, or at least, more than the previous years.

Yes that was my intention, too( but I`m also quite happy that there are finally some bright non-seethrough colours again).
