Fixed bridge and a reverse headstock. i_sleep.jpg
The white pickups are a nice touch, though.
It's rosewood per the specs at the link.
I'm not gonna lie, this one is growing on me.
I would buy one in a heart beat if it's not overly expens- wait what am I saying? This is ibanez we're talking about
It's like 12 years later they decide to put out something to compete with Blackmachine.
Ibanez Rules says its coming in September:
Also apparently getting a J-Custom 7 again:
Pretty bummed it has the Edge Zero, which I thought they weren't doing in the US any more.
What a sexy babe!!!
They're probably willing to eat the licensing cost since they're on high margin J.Customs.
Just wanted to bump this thread with Ibanez's US website. It's now listed on their site.
Surprise, surprise it is a rosewood fretboard. When will Ibanez learn?
I just pre-ordered mine with Rich. I got pick of the litter
100% would order this if it had an ebony board and no dots.
I'm an ebony fan, but for this guitar I like the stained rosewood much better. It's almost pitch black, but it has got the striations that match up the body's raw finish.
I suppose I can agree with that, still hate the dots though.
A lot of competent luthiers can plug the dots with matching rosewood and you’d never be able to notice. I’ve had it done to one of my basses.
In the flesh in the US
Hope they all look this good. 2-piece center-joined body and a nice dark board.
I wish they would have done the smaller inlays like on 1527s and 2127s.
This model confuses the hell out of me. I know there are some people on SSO who got one so please enlighten me: Is the fretboard dyed or did they go out of their way to select the darkest and least streaked rosewood boards in existence for these guitars? Why did they not go for ebony straight? Or Richlite/Phenolic, or hell - just paint ot over black? The small hint of brown on a black/white guitar triggers my OCD.
Ebony can be harder to work with (can crack) and is more expensive (though CITES might be changing that?) and typically has to be dyed anyway.
So even f they have to dye the rosewood that dark, it’s not a big deal.
Synthetic materials I think are great and should get a lot more use, but I’m sure people would flip out at Ibanez for using them and we’d have pages of people ranting and wished they’d just used rosewood instead.
