    Nice overall, but it would be far better without the binding, imo. Also, there seems to be some kind of flaw on the photo: an uneven black line between paint and binding?

    These don't exist yet, it's just a mock up that Ibanez does.

    even in Ibanez mockups the ebony board is just poo brown.

    looks interesting though. long scale, ss frets, and an edge.

    just remember that its a mockup. im sure the actual beast will look much better :) The actual 2027XL looks better than the mockup we got back in Jan :)

    poo brown fretboard ruins it.

    If this was jet black ebony, it would look military'esque and be awesome.

    I don't believe they do, no. As for pickups, we can do whatever you wish! And yes it comes with case. For more info check out our website :)

    No, thats not accurate. We're only getting 12 of them.

    God why don't ESP and Ibanez consult with you first before releasing guitars?

    Its just a mockup dude. Its Macassar Ebony. If Macassar Ebony isn't your thing, we easily can dye it for you which is all the majority of pitch black ebony you see is - dye jobs.

    They pretty much do man. Did you see the new ESP Stephen Carpenter model? That was literally my custom shop guitar first. Or Ibanez' new Desert Yellow Satin RG? Again, my design for an earlier run :)

    Poo brown is more "military-esque" than black these days. Metallic silver never really has been.

    This is the one that Ibanez should have released in the first place! It's so awesome! Stainless steel frets is REALLY worth the extra 100$ :agreed:
    Hope these will also turn up for purchase here in Europe like the Ibanez RGDR7UCS-DYF already did.

    We could always send you one so you can support the guys coming up with the designs rather than those profiting off our ideas :p

    I totally wish you were in Europe because from what I see you look like one of the best places to shop for guitars. BUT I'm anxious regarding international purchases and shipping so to be honest I don't see myself ordering from you at the moment. I wish you all the best with this model though and that it sells well so that Ibanez maybe also offers us one here in Europe.
    How did it work with the RGD? Did you make a special order and Ibanez decided to just make a few more and offer them to dealers on other continents?
