Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

HAHAHAHA

Check out the new headstock pick - complete with artificial photoshop "blurring" and what looks like a crayoned-in swoosh logo.

Also, anyone think the chrome Edge looks rather like a DIY job, too? It's a little uneven, and I seem to recall that the locking screws under the fine-tuners on an original edge are black too, and not chrome...

Yep, the chrome bridge is a DIY - just compared it against the Chrome Edge on the JS1IR on Rich's page, and the screws are definitely black... ...as are the fine tuners, which a different shot shows are also chromed here.

Interestingly enough, the body looks fairly good. I'm curious how the guy chromed it.

He's updated the auction with more pics, and full shots as well, just looks like a chromed RG to me...

I guess it's a piece of alder inside the guitar, since mahogany sounds like c**k and b***s.

Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

Does the middle pickup look like an S1 to anyone else? Must really give that Cosmic Distortion tone to it.

I personally don't think it is "that bad". The guy's english isn't too good, and he's trying too hard to sell the thing. It appears to be simply a Chromed RG570, that maybe has some special things under the paint

Beats me what an alder resonance box is, unless it is actually a pedal.

I think it might be legit, Glay is a famous j-rock band.

Yeah, I was fixated on the pics and other things and forgot those things. WTF is a "resonance box"?? And personally, I'm looking for an "impure chrome" guitar myself.

Well, If he actually gets the guitar and it turns out to be a chromed RG570 with HSC, 500USD is not a bad deal. But I can assure you, the seller has no plans of selling it for 500.

When the guitar was for sale in the mexican auction site he was asking around 2K. Now that he has gone further, adding fake pictures of the headstock and a "COA", plus the doctored magazine, Ill bet he really thinks he can pull it off. So my bet is that the reserve price is way over 1000USD

I'm personally familiar with the one in the middle. ( <--<< This person, was trying to be friendly with the seller and coax some detailed pics. He still hasn't received them.)

The one at the bottom is a vendor from NJ.

Who sent the question at the top?

Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

I've seen that headstock shot somewhere before, and JS #10/200 those were easily picked up off the web. The band photo is photoshoped, the guitar in that pic doesn't have a natural JS shape, way too pointy. And I love the "sure!,but i'll put a seal or something to avoid falsifications,i hope you understand." statements made in his responses. I hope if either of you get pics back, you post them here for us to laugh at.

Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

If he actually sends me a few pics of a "real" Cosmic Wonder, I'll probably fall outta my chair.

BTW, I've never seen an RG without a tilt-back headstock. The pic of the Crystal Planet headstock in the auction is most definitely straight and not a tilt-back.

Re: Ibanez "Cosmic Wonder" WTF is this

I had asked the question about 30 seconds before I figured it all out [which was as soon as I got off my ass and walked over to the monitor for a close look at the back of the head ]
