Sorry if this is old news.

Very interesting!

It's only listed on a few Euro stores. I'll have to do some digging.

EDIT: It's not listed on any of the Ibanez EU sites. Perhaps a dealer jumped the gun?

But it's not listen on the official Ibanez website, and it's only available in some Norwegian and Czech stores.

It definitley wouldn't be the first time a dealer posted a guitar before it hits the Ibanez sites. Ibanez does send out materials before updating thier site.

Can anyone fluent in those languages see if these are listed as "in stock"?

They are out of stock (or not in stock yet, really) at the moment. I guess I'll buy one soon enough, as they're the same price as the six-strings.

I've played the 6 string version and if they are anything like those i will definately think about snagging one of these. I am expecting a silly price tag though

Nice. Not really loving the mix of gold and black hardware though.

I know this website has put out some guitars that are supposed to be japan-only before, so could it be made for the japanese market?

that is pretty sexy, the last thing I need is another 7, but this might be too hard to pass up.

According to that site the prices are identical to their 6-string counterparts.

Gold? Where do you see gold? It looks like all Chrome, just like the other Premiums.

If it's real, I'll need a mod to help update THE GREAT LIST.

Looks pretty spanky though, if it's legit.

EDIT: Ibanez has a page for it on their Russian website, although there's no info, but the text is definitely on the page.
