Now we all know the pitfalls of the JS10 finish and the cost to the end user, and we've all seen the JS2PRM which in my opinion being Aluminium powder coated is Uber soft (like lead) why oh why dont Ibanez use the "chromeFX" or similar system to mass produce the chromeboy. Hell that would be an immense seller , finsh would be as good lookin as real chrome and and fraction of the price to achieve and going by past examples a more stable finish , well just as stable as any other finish tbh.
Seems good buisness sense to do bearing in mind the number of JS
owners getting it done on their own guitars.
Just Wondered why Ibanez dont see the Light ?
That's the age old question. It is a mystery...
Check out this thread I posted. That was one of the first threads I posted once I became a member of jemsite.
The fact that there is no production model of the chrome JS
, really bugs me, too.
I really don't think there is a market for making a mass production of the chromeboy. Well, it may depend on what the list price would be in the end.
I'm going to post a poll about that! Then we'll see if it would sell or not. As will Ibanez...
Because its an expensive and difficult process.
That therefore drives the price up, making it kinda pointless to mass-produce it.
Do I think there should be more research into a better/easier chrome finish? Yes.
Now check out this chromed Darth vader.
Look at all the curves and shapes... It's tremendously complex. And yet the manufacturers succeeded in doing it flawlessly. And they made a boat
load of these.
So why does Ibanez have problems with chroming the JS
? I mean, the JS
has a lot less curves. I don't get it.
And also, just think of all the things in the average bathroom which are chromed. Shower heads, faucets, knobs... I don't get it.
