Does Ibanez really need to cut corners on their $2k+ guitars? Seriously, how many black guitars with Rosewood can you have in your product line?!

Here's a few axes that I think would be epic wins with Ebony boards or some nice birdseye maple... (IMO)

Oh well, rant over... they'll still get my $$$ anyways.
Why is it you think Ibanez uses ....ty rosewood? The slab on my S (an early nineties guitar, admittedly) has one of the best rosewood boards I've ever seen.
