    If they want to surprise me with those specs, they can set the MAP below 3k.

    Also, not enough poplar burl or cort bass pickups IMO.

    I seem to be the only person alive who doesn't like that style. I find them ugly as hell. :shrug:

    I wonder if the current vintage trend is a way to distract people from the lack of rosewood because of CITES.

    seems to me that they are trying to get in on that Suhr pie?

    alot of the comments are saying they look like generic 80s no name shredders so you are not alone thats for suhr...

    CITES is the best thing to ever happen to the guitar industry from a purely aesthetic perspective.

    There must have been millions of different guitar lines made where Ive thought "that would look amazing if it DIDNT HAVE A ROSEWOOD fretboard"

    Almost spit my coffee out at that knee slapper.

    I'm also not fond of that style, too. Plus, I'm not really jiving with that headstock shape either.

    :lol:

    yeah I thought at first I liked the shape, but having pulled it up... hmmm Im not convinced entirely by it.

    EDIT: Looks like some generic yamaha starter strat headstock or something.
    Nothing deal breaking though if it plays like sex.

    I see what you did there...

    Can't say I'm too much of a fan when it comes to sparkly finishes, roasted maple necks and rounded shapes. Wish Ibanez would do (more) RGA and RGD prestiges instead.

    It's almost as if it wants to work, but then all of a sudden it just falls flat on it's face.

    I also wish Ibanez would stop being so stubborn with their "Our logo MUST BE ON A HEADSTOCK" and tackle headless and fanned fret shapes abit more readily.

    Imagine an neck through RGA headless multiscale?!?........

    I assume Ibanez will never address the headless market - it's just too small...

    I just don't understand headless guitars that keep the tail end of a regular guitar. doesn't make any sense.
