    Anyone ever visit ibanez in Japan? Like the hoshino plant or maybe a flagship store?

    I went to Megadeth yesterday in Paradiso Amsterdam. Great show! First time I saw new Megadeth guitarplayer Chris Broderick. I was surprised to see he's an Ibanez player. And what a great guitar he plays! It's a 7 string purple quilted custom with a reverse headstock. Nice! Loved his playing...

    http://www.highwayguitar.com/showart.asp?art_id=273&cat_id=2 Theres the link. No artist signature. Maybe later. All i can say is, Absolutly disappointing & disgusting. From the photo, Cheap craft and cheap specs. Plain dot inlay with an Edge III??? The color them is purely based on...

    On Rich's site (IbanezRules.com), he says he's out of stock for the RGT320Q and it says 'discontinued.' Did Ibanez really stop making this model or is Rich just not selling them anymore? If they stopped making them, what's going to take its place?

    Would kill for a reissue classic Iceman II ala flamed maple top!!! (for sale in USA) In a perfect world there would be reissues of the Iceman, Destroyer & Rocket Roll, but I'm realistic! Give us one at a time. :) Then when Ibanez sees what a success they are, they can reissue all 3 in...

    End of November, already! And we didn't get much news about what is going on in Fujigen plant for 2008. So, this is a call to anyone who could have picked here or there pieces of info about next year line-up. Please,feed my GAS!

    Just like the Xiphos 7, there has been a lot of interest over at sevenstring.org about a 7 string RG (mostly people say they want one that is not made from basswood). I'd buy one. It would be the answer to many people at ss.org's prayers, ha ha. Just a suggestion.

    Hi Mr Hosono, just want to ask if these are real Ibanez strings or fakes ??? I bought them at the computer center in Bangkok whilst on holidays. are they real or fake

    Hi All Back in the late 1990s, I believe '98, Ibanez released the 90 year anniversary '90 HAM' edition guitars of a number of artist models (JEM, JS, JPM..). Since then I've been looking forward to their 100 year anniversary, and hoping they would release '100 HAM' models, and saving up! I...

    Mr. Hosono....... This is my first time in this section of Jemsite. I honestly had no idea there was a section here that we could communicate directly with Ibanez authority. Many times in other sections here, I have stated/asked about the lack of options in your Universe/7 string market. Im...

    Given that there are stores in the US with some RG20ths in stock right now, and also that people still seem to be taking orders for them, it looks like there is no real demand for a regular production run of neon RGs. Which is what I thought might be the case. I guess these facts should stop...

    Did they ever make anything to celebrate Hoshino's 100th anniversary? I imagine 90HAM was a pretty succesfull series but not such a big deal in "age sense" as 100 years.

    Now that all the new models for '07 have been released, I think the next thing to look forward to are the great modela for the 100th an. of Hoshino! Remember the great models for the 90th anniversary!!! mmm But no Petrucci model this time :( I have both a JPM 90th and a JEM 90th.. both great...

    Watch the guitar in action and then email, call or PM me if interested. I have no solid pricing as of yet, but this is going to be a rare guitar and it will be difficult to get. It's hard to tell by the video, but each guitar has it's own unique multi color swirl pattern inside the body and...

    Some new J-customs perhaps???? (Pics working now) Hi Mr. Hosono I have had my 2000 RG3120TW for some years (fantastic instrument) and I have had some other guitars as well between now and then. Now I´m looking to get some more Ibanez' and the other day I was in my local shop and try out...

    dear Mr.Tak Hosono, it would be very cool if you could take some pics to ANY Custom models you guys at the Custom Shop build for the endorsees. they would be posted here or at the "Custom" section on the Ibanez forum, just for the Ibanez community to see. it takes nothing, just a couple pics to...

    Look guys, I appreciate you have an R&D team and a board of execs who all have to be pleased. But PLEASE start and consider your customers feelings. If it is true and you do have people who often visit this site then I'm sure you're already aware that many of us are having our loyalties...

    Has anyone any info on whether there will be a 20th Anni Jem? Do I need to start saving.....

    Just read in this book that the Jem 7VWH Alder body was originally a gift for Eddie Van Halen but that they couldn't figure out a good time to give it to him so it lay about for a while until someone asked if anybody had any new good ideas for a new jemm model.....! Can anyone shed any more...

    It seems strange that such a big company does not have a genuine custom shop. Do you think there would be interest in a web based custom shop system like jacksons? (http://www.jacksonguitars.com/resources/custshopquote/) It seems like a great way to get that custom JEM/UV/RG simply picking...
