Re: AANJ? Is there a need for it?

Why would you need to adapt, if they (and other brands) can do the AANJ, or neckthroughs? You could adapt to not having A/C in your car, you could adapt to almost anything. Why would you, if thres no...

Re: USA Custom Master Thread

The imported a bunch of them in argentina (I'd say about 20/40). Since Argentina is a very conservative market when it comes to guitars (PRS don't sell very well, and Ibanez used prices are extremely...

Re: Any news on this?

The "problem" with the RT line as a starting point for this endeavour is that, though they were great, they were always affordable guitars (hardly a problem I agree, but you ll se my point). So...

Re: Any news on this?

Te guitars appears to be a trial balloon to see what reactions they get. They clearly looking to tap into suhr success with more traditional super strats.

I agree with Glen on this one. The...

Re: 2017 Ibanez premium guitars

What I meant is visible there. What I mean by the arm rest is the "drop top part of the guitar". Because the body is thinner there, even though the top on those is thicked than the tops in the...

Re: 2017 Ibanez premium guitars

I ve just realized you were referring to the RG6PCMLTD tops being crap, I thought you meant the PRS CE24 tops (which usually aren't that great either). I agree, the only bummer of the RG6PMCLTD is...

Re: 2017 Ibanez premium guitars

No, you most definitely can't, and neither can you buy a 655 for 1200. I'm talking US prices in all cases.

I would expect the CE24 top to be bland. You have to use a rather thick top (though not...

Re: 2017 Ibanez premium guitars

As I said a PRC CE24 with a carved flamed maple top and bird inlays has a street price of 1999.

Look at the price gap between a USD1200 bare bones RG655 and a 4000 USD J custom. If they wanted to...

Re: 2017 Ibanez premium guitars

It is a guess. It is a somewhat informed one I believe. I have an idea of how much each of the things involved cost, but I don't know what fujigen charges Ibanez, so yes, it is a guess (I never...

Re: 2017 Ibanez premium guitars

Agreed. I'm not dismissing cost as factor altoghether. I do think it has an impact. I'm just not convinced that it is the main driving force in the strategy. I could see that when the yen was at mid...

Re: 2017 Ibanez premium guitars

I can see what Glen means. The prestige line has been neglected, and you do have to look into signatures for anything that has desirable features, bue the pricing on those is insane. That's a...

Re: 2017 Ibanez premium guitars

About the 2017 line up.... may be Rich, but there's not much to get excited about in the RG prestige line. There's nothing that would make me say "I really need to get one of those"

To me the MIJ...

Re: 2017 Ibanez premium guitars

I get you point Glen, as I'm sure you get mine. At the end of the day, since it worked in me, I can't call it a failed strategy. Time will tell.

Re: 2017 Ibanez premium guitars

I was going to post the same thing.

The analogy would be: They still serve espresso, but they serve it on a paper cup while you are standing (RG MIJ bare bones).

If you want the espresso the...

Re: Signature Prestige vs Premium

The price gap between any signature premium and regular production is similar (may be even less), as a percentage, to what happens between MIJ signatures vs MIJ regular production. But if your are...

Re: 2017 Ibanez premium guitars

I actually love the grainy feel of those neck. I had an RG927WZCZ and I loved the feel of it.

Also, I think that the new Premium guitars make sense. Aside from J Customs, I havent been excited by...

Re: Is The Ibanez Mikro any good?

Pretty good Little guitars. I own one. The pickups are OK, but I would change them along with the switch in order to install a 5 way switch configuration.

Re: Fair price for Mint GMC and Jem 10th?

The 570 swirl is not mine. I have several guitars painted or built by them, but not the swirl. The current Price for a swirl would be around 150/200 USD

Re: Fair price for Mint GMC and Jem 10th?

It was stellar indeed. I remember you also like the PMC very much and we were close to doing a trade for it (at the time I thought I was going to visit NY, but finally posponed that). You probably...

Re: Fair price for Mint GMC and Jem 10th?

just as a reference, for what it's worth, I sold a sweet very clean PMC (with minor blemishes) for 4500+shipping. And an amazing (may be among the best swirls I ve seen) UV77MC for 6K (no dings or...

Re: Fair price for Mint GMC and Jem 10th?
