Xiphos in 7 String!

I really dig that new Xiphos but I'm a 7 String player. I would really like to see some Xiphos 7's made, Specifically MIJ models. Also offer more Chameleon finishes other than Red and Blue, like Green, Yellow, Orange etc. Anyone else feels the same way?

Give them a chance man, Ibanez just released that goofy thing a couple of months ago.

Re: Xiphos in 7 String!

I'm sure they will do oodles of stuff to the xiphos if it sells well.

But forget about Japan.

well I'm not gonna lie, personally I feel their 7's have gone down bucket since they went with Korea and Indonesia made 7's. But I wanted to bring up the idea of the Xiphos in 7's in case they haven't thought of it yet.

Re: Xiphos in 7 String!

its such a metal guitar that if they do a new 7 at some point its probably gotta be the xiphos!

Re: Xiphos in 7 String!

Well, I'd like to see a Xiphos 7-string.

As far as MIK and MII goes - I've yet to be dissapointed by one factory-new Ibanez.

Re: Xiphos in 7 String!

If Ibanez released a prestige quality guitar with real dimarzios, a none black finish and a top bridge you'd be looking at J custom prices.

You can see it being built in the custom shop pics thread..
Whether that will ever become a production model is a whole different thing though I guess
