    Has Ibanez ever done a production 8 string trem? I don't remember them doing one, but I would love one.

    EDIT: I mean, I know that this mockup is supposed to be with a Gibraltar bridge, but I would still love an 8 trem. They're so rare that I just think it would help with sales (and be super cool!).

    We thinking of taking the dots out for the actual run? (No need to re-render the image on my account, though, Lewis! But thanks for doing the work on it!)

    Bare maple for days. This is getting more and more pornographic by the post.

    Yeah, we still don't have a price, but hopefully Nick can get something together. And I'd LOVE for this to be premium, and not prestige, because saving a few hundred dollars would be awesome!

    To be honest I've thought about this a lot because I've only got Indo Ibanez's in my current line-up and I'm pretty happy with those. Went into the dealer yesterday to try out a Prestige because it's been ages since I've played one. I'm happy to pay the extra coin for Prestige now xD

    Was thinking of saying I'd be in for the run when I saw the deposit amount, but once I checked how much the six and seven string runs were ($1800 all in?) I think I'll have to say I'm out. I'll definitely keep monitoring this thread once a price gets posted and potentially just keep living vicariously through you all. :lol:

    I can't tell if Nick is actually considering this, or if he's like a parent standing back watching two 10 year olds trying to make a time machine in the garage, not wanting to ruin the fantasy.

    This is probably just me nit-picking but unless it's coming with the j-custom logo on the headstock I don't think it'd suit a vine of life. That's always signified high end Ibanez.
