Why no hard tail RG's?
I favor hardtails, too. But I wish IBZ would offer the option of hardtails on upper line models along with reverse headstock, pickup options & neck inlay options.
I know, this is dreaming, but it's nice. It's very sad that IBZ got hip around 92-93 & began the big changeover to what we see today. Back then they offered Lo-Pro edges on RGs as well as 3 different pickup options. Never had a problem selling them either. The sad reality is that it's all about $$$$. If buyers will buy a $900 guitar that's cheaper for them to make in Korea than Japan, then that's what buyers get. *
