Yo @zimbloth Can you price these? WE will love you forever
The blank board is pretty sweet looking. I’m somewhat tempted. I’d probably immediately send it off to be routed for a top-mount Floyd 8, though.
We might be waiting a while (which is perfectly fine). I'd imagine dealers would be still trawling through enquiries from NAMM and other post NAMM shenanigans. In the meantime, it would be best to see if it's possible at all to sure up more people on the bandwagon. Even if this thing is $2.5k USD base (arbitrary figure pulled out of my arse) people will still be down with it because it's a killer looking guitar. Heck I'm consulting the bank to see if I can afford this AND one of the 7s ha.
I would sell anything to get an 8 string that looks like that. Oh my god. The vine. Oh. Sweet mercy.
somebody hold me
I just talked with Nick. No way Ibanez will do the vine of life. Sigh. I just asked them if they're OK with the BEM FB, though. Did we already get confirmation on that?
Just re-read the thread, bare maple fretboard not confirmed in writing. Worth getting confirmation
OK, cool. We'll see if anyone else on here has any confirmation from Nick, otherwise I'll see if he answers my latest message on FB.
why don't they give us what we want
edit: there's at least ten sales guaranteed from this forum. ten is enough right?
I would think they’d hit 10 easily, but a lot of us are kind of waiting for a price ball park.
Thats likely where they go wrong. Do they actually listen to to the market and do research?.
Or do they just churn out what they think people want?.
I think its the latter personally.
If this one thread generated this interest, think what an entire official announcement from Ibanez would do to garner interest?
End of the day most of their 8 strings look boring as shit. Alot of dudes mod them to not look so average.
I think we need 10 deposits before he will order. No inlays would be best imo. Gilbraltar bridge instead of edge III FX.
If you don’t like that bridge there is a replacement version on the market
wish I had the cash to spare for this.
Well lucky by the time we get this going, you'll probably have some
I'm standing by eagerly for that precise reason.
With the JEM inlay and the trem, I'd have a hard time saying no to that, but since Ibanez won't do the inlay on a non-JEM and the trem does not exist, and since this is likely going to be well over $2k without any of that fancy stuff, I, personally, have to pass.
Best of luck with this!
Nick said yes to the BEM FB. Next stop: Pricing. This is going to be the big one for most of us.
They don't do Prestiges with Vine of Life inlays, and for every person who thinks the Vines are awesome, theres another person who would say "if only it had a blank fingerboard id buy this". I think a Prestige 8 in WCB with a maple board is damn sweet enough, right??
Anyways Ibanez is notoriously slow with communication. I am currently awaiting final pricing on some other Axe Palace runs I've scheduled for later in 2018, hopefully after they get back to me on that they'll have pricing on this theoretical 8 idea
I should also point out that we don't need 10 deposits to make it happen. While that would be nice certainly, I think we could make it happen with a few less than that. 8 would be a good number. This is just for our own security, as sometimes Ibanez will force us to take 12 or even 20 of these things and I wouldn't want to get stuck with a ton of niche 8-strings you know?
^sweet. Definitely let us know! I’d love to get this off the ground!
Just a bump to see if there was any progress.
None yet sadly
