Re: Definitive(-ish) list of J Customs

Thanks for taking a shot at translating it. Unfortunately, this image is the best (only) scan I've found of this (or any) advertisement for this guitar.

It's definitely a special run for Rock Inn....

Re: Definitive(-ish) list of J Customs

I finally found some info and a photo of the RRG1502S:

Re: Ibanez hrg73 BKF

Seems like a version of the RG15271 with EMG pickups. Probably a spot model for Ikebe Gakki. Can you share additional pics of the hang tags and the back of the guitar and headstock? I'd also be...

Re: RG1527 Rosewood type

I'm aware of a small handful of models with "Honduran rosewood", but none with anything more exotic than that. You can assume that if it was made by Ibanez in the last 30 years and the description...

Re: RG1527 Rosewood type

It's Indian rosewood (which is slightly less strictly regulated than Brazilian rosewood). That said, I have no way of providing PROOF of that assertion that would be likely to help with your...

Re: Uppercut series, Collectable?

Yeah, this clearly wasn't Christie's first rodeo.

I have a hard time thinking any guitar is worth $4M, but I was glad to see the prices mostly because the proceeds are largely going to charity.

Re: Uppercut series, Collectable?

I didn't watch, but wasn't surprised by the prices. The guys like Irsay who are bidding on this stuff are so damned rich that an extra digit or two in the price simply doesn't register. It would've...

Newer AR2619 vs. vintage 80s AR300

Has anyone here had the opportunity to compare one of the newer Prestige AR2619s head-to-head against a 70s-80s vintage AR300 (upon which the AR2619 is based)?

When I've compared modern FujiGen...

Kinda depends on how you define "collectible". In the sense that they'll retain their value at least as well as regular Prestiges, I'd say that they likely will. In the sense that you should cash out...

Re: Ibanez 2019 NAMM Speculation Thread

5 new artists? Or 5 new guitars?

Obviously Andy's ATZ is one.

Re: Ibanez 2019 NAMM Speculation Thread

Seems Ibanez has finally caved to the reality that information travels globally at the speed of light in the Internet age. Only took them about 20 years for that to occur to them.

Re: Who has an AZ???

I'd venture to guess the difference in sound is mostly the Prestige being Alder and the Premium being basswood.

Another factor that may explain some of the difference in sound...

Re: Mysterious 550

The color looks a LOT like the Transparent Magenta burst on my '91 570FM. Sadly (for me), yours has almost as much "flame" to it as well. ;)

Re: Mysterious 550

Yeah, I can see a bit of sunburst. I've never seen a sunburst 550 (from the factory), but I won't say it's impossible that it happened. They were experimenting with lots of things back then.

Re: Mysterious 550

Ibanez printed a BUNCH of those SN stickers starting with "F7" and apparently continued using them until they were used up. They were used through 1988 and into 1989. It looks like Coral Mist...

Re: Ibanez 2019 NAMM Speculation Thread

I'd be shocked if they added direct sales to the website. That would be a pretty major change to their business model.

Given the number of issues I'm seeing with the site (missing images, broken...

I noticed this morning that Ibanez has refreshed their web design. I don't see any new models and little new content, but you guys might want to check it out. Perhaps you'll find something I missed....

If you're still looking for an HSS RG, Shimamura has a used RG2560ZEX in stock (https://info.shimamura.co.jp/guitar/e-guitar/eg-ibanez/542802/).

Re: Who has an AZ???

Pretty sure that's a veneer of real flame maple on that model. Ibanez hasn't used photoflames on too many models. Most of the ones that have them have been GIOs. In my experience they always note it...

Re: Who has an AZ???

Bottom line, you can assume that every exotic top is only a veneer unless Ibanez lists the thickness of the top in their specs. I don't recall ever seeing them use the term "veneer".
