Wow. When you put it like that, it's pretty unbelievable, really.

I'm with him ^^^.

No maple, no colours, no choice. No point. When a 20 year old design (RG550 20th) is the most desirable and talked about thing in the 2007 range, something must be kinda wrong.

Ibanez might deserve a round of applause for their cheap RG4XX and lower series RG's, Artcores, X-series, and the 20th ann. RG550's. There is some original stuff there, and the RG550s are super nice. Even with the old neck joint.

Re: I think the folks at Ibanez deserve a big round of applause

Well, Ibanez IS going into the right direction, with more colors and variety, they need to keep going with more options. Like the 80's and early 90's. More Vibrant Colors. More Maple necks. More of those "Picture/ Decal" or what ever you call them guitars. (Me finding a Necromancer's Castle would be a total nerdgasm for me. http://www.ibanezrules.com/catalogs/...scan0011_1.jpg )
Thats why I see so many people switching to Jackson, because they offer these options. If Ibanez wants to survive, I believe they need to offer more.

They could've done a joint Becker/Friedman special edition although Marty's Ibanez contract may have inteferred.

I would still love a Becker DC for sure!!

Yeah his carvin guitar was cool . Didn't it have a Kahler trem?

Could they be production guitars anyway? Possibly, but no word yet. The mustard sparkle one's inlay would be rather hard to photoshop, especially, but the pink wouldn't be too prohibitive.

Also, that "Oxblood" S series looks like something I've seen photoshopped before, and is too close to a Louis Vuitton pattern, IMO, for me to believe Ibanez would really release it. My money says that one's not real. The blue UV has also been confirmed to be a fake - Shawn over at www.sevenstring.org did that one himself.

EDIT - also, those three natural stained finish RG7 fixed bridge guitars have been a Japan-only small batch run for that japanese shop that'll ship to the states, drawing a blank on the name... The official designation is something like HR7-4 or somehting like that. It's not a new model, though I'd LOVE to see those widely available in the states.

He rotated all 3 at the same time i believe.

I don't think he was contracted to 1 particular company so he used all available.

The Carvin DC was definately he most used guitar though. And i'm surprised THEY haven't released anything.

Yeah I know he has several. He also had a LACS Ibanez. But I was sure that he was with Carvin back in the early 1990's.
