I am definitely gonna wait till after namm to get my hopes up but i REALLY cant wait for NAMM!!

For real an RGA7 Prestige would be great. And with EMG707s, it looks like its almost the exact same thing as an Agile interceptor pro.

Also can anyone explain to me why the RG1527 jumped from 900 bucks to 1300 bucks last year?

The cost of production in Japan at Fuji-Gen went up, while the value of the US Dollar went down.

As far as I'm concerned, Ibanez is just too late for me. I found my Agile and I'm not leaving. These all look like killer models but Agile's got my vote.

But even if its 27" Im sure the 2127 is not in regards to scale length just like it wasnt with the limited only 300 made for the Japanese market 2127X. Its only cause the pic we have of it is stretched or something to appear to be 27" but it probably isnt. And since its RGD2127Z "ish" Im thinking it may end up being a Japanese Ishibashi only limited run. I really hope not.

anyway, japanese only-run is still fine. it just means that they'll be more unique once you get em over here

No one confirmed anything, in fact if anything they dismissed the fact that they were 27", but then went on to say it didn't look like they were 25.5" either. Since none of the Ibanez photos are fully in-scale with each other, there can't be a definitive ruling.

As for the "RG Diamond Cut", that's what a Hoshino USA employee over on the official Ibanez forum called it.

I'm impressed! I really like black guitars, I guess.

I REALLY REALLY wanted to get an S7 but I couldn't be satisfied with 22 frets. Looks like they were listening. I have to get that now!

I totally agree that of all the colours they could have gone with, Black is a nice simple one that's easily re-finishable and whatnot.

I know people hate the EMG style pickups but for some reason I'd find it really sacrilege if people were desperate enough to want to route out the cavity just to put a normal pickup in. I think the reason they used the EMG 707 style soapbar pickups is because they and the SD blackouts are popular aftermarket choices. I say, a company (if not EMG/Duncan) should make a 707-style soapbar shape option for their passive ranges. That'd save people doing horrendous shit to their guitars.

What I'd really like is if the RGD 6-string came in 25.5 scale as well.

It would make way more sense to me if EMG made their pickup passive sized (it can be done, see the blackouts) rather than ever other brand on the market made a second version of their pickup.

I just hope if an RGA7 prestige comes out, it's going to be with passive sized routes but I highly doubt it now.

You don't route anything to put something smaller where something larger once sat.

I know Nordstrand will make a passive soapbar shaped humbucker. Though, as long as it's built into a similar shaped/sized housing as an EMG it'll fit seamlessly.

Though, I agree with others, EMG REALLY needs to step up and make a standard sized version of their pickups, especially with SD in the active soapbar game.
