Anyone know when the AZ2402 in Seafoam Green, White, and Pink will start selling in the US?
I'm really digging the AZ242 but I'm thinking I want to go Prestige; and that SFG one is gorgeous!
Probably won't buy until next year though. And even then if some gorram crisis doesn't suck up all my extra cash! :p
See official site link for finishes.

I like the pearl white flat!

Best of all is that they've got FIVE different finishes on the same guitar, which is how Ibanez used to run RGs back in the late 80s early 90s. I'm really pleased that these are doing well enough to warrant the number of finishes that are offered!

I still don't like the trem, but I like the finishes :)

The PWF was my fave, the pink I'm just not sure about. I didn't order one. I'm just not sure who the buyer is for that color, but evidently somebody above liked it so what do I know ;)

TBH it would be more of a toss up for me if the pink had white pickups and knobs. But SFG would probably still win.
On a side note, I took the AZ242 Premium in to a tech for the neck issue that has been bugging me. Turns out my eyes suck and there's am ever so slight hump. He sorted it out and now I can't put it down.
Of course, when I'm not playing the RG521. :D
I'm seriously considering selling all my other guitars.... okay maybe not the FRM150.... or the RG921 (I need a fixed AANJ RG).... definitely not the RG20th. Okay, I'm not selling anything!
Those two guitars get nearly all of my playing time now. I'd like to see what a Prestige AZ is like to own. But I also hear some of the Prestige AZ's get hump too. I'd think the STECH treatment would be more thorough in general, no?

I hope they throw the Edge/LP on an AZ one day
Yes! The trem they have now may be ok, but I just have never trusted those non-locking ones after a couple bad experiences.

Even still I'll have to wait until I can pick one up used a few years later, just can't justify the cost of new. Starting to see a few used ones popping up on Reverb in the $900 range though...:plain:
