    700 total, it looks to be in great condition minus a small ding on the headstock and a 2 inch or so area on the edge on the back where the paint is scraped off, no wood damage though. Has an alpha/omega set installed as well. Maybe not the cheapest for a used prestige but to be fair I dont see alot of these

    Definitely worth the price imo with those alpha/omega pups. Would love to see pictures once you get it!

    ya to get one cheaper you'd have to wait for another one to pop up. The ones left on reverb are way high. 500 for the guitar and 200 for the pups is a great deal.

    Seeing the other ones out there, I have high hopes that there will be decent color options which I'm excited about (but I like tobacco burst too anyway). But I think this picture brings up a good point with these new models. Of course Ibanez has noticed how popular a superstrat Suhr has become and no doubt has helped these models come along, but I feel like they know that these guitars will appeal to people in the pop or country scene, among many others, where as a very similarly specced RG would probably be a little too metal looking.

    I know Mario from Chon as a light purple one...though that may just be a one off for him. Others I've seen have been that sunburst, white, blue, and red. So theyre at least testing a good amount of colors.

    Congratulations on making the correct colour choice ;) Me, I couldn't be bothered to wait and see if Europe also got the "new" RG550s... Instead I simply ordered a DY from Ishibashi - it just cleared customs and should be with me in a couple of days... THEN, it will be soldering time!

    I haven’t read all 15 pages; so apologies if it’s been asked/addressed: Any RGs in the cards? They’re my favorite guitar of theirs.

    RG550s and 570s reissued. Again. And that's a great thing.

    Jewel Blue is back :) I wish it would be with the maple board and reverse headstock. It would be so RAD.

    I am in the minority that actually likes these guitars as a whole package and look at it as a way to get a poor man's Suhr type deal. I know Ibanez has been hit or miss on quality for quite some time (and is why I've been leaning towards the higher end of the Schecter MIK stuff) but these look appealing. That said, probably going to run for the Schecter Sun valley shredder models instead of these in the end.

    this, there are very few offerings on the market right now for anything similar in design to Suhr, Tom Anderson, etc... even the more traditional designs like the TA Drop Top don't have many cheaper alternatives. The only ones I can think off of the top of my head are some Schecter Japan models, Edwards (like 2 models), and that one recent Schecter prototype that DCGL posted, and all of those are the TA DT style not even Suhr Modern or TA Angel.

    edit: Jericho is already making a copy of the Mayones Setius, so why shouldn't Ibanez (and hopefully Schecter USA) copy Suhr/TA?

    After buying my first and last Suhr, I'd way rather support Ibanez.
