nothing yet. ibanez has been quite slow, per usual.
Found out recently that I get a nice bonus if my company pulls enough monthly revenue so here's hoping that coincides with this run happening.
Ok I finally heard back from Ibanez. An 8-string version of our Wild Cherry Blossom run could be done, the price would be $1999 and they could get it done by December.
thats amazing news.
Is that blank fretboard? Or with vine inlay?
They don't do vine inlays on Prestiges. It could be blank or off-set dots.
Still, either of those options are fine anyhow.
Just confirming that this would be with the maple board or the rosewood board?
@Hollowway it's possible!
@zimbloth I think we should hold a vote of blank maple or offset.
+1 for black maple
Blast from the past. Was there ever a run/sign up for this?
Nah, never went ahead. I think there was only 3-4 of us in total and the minimum for a run is 10-12 units from memory. That being said the 6 and 7 string versions did go ahead.
Yeah the 6 and 7-string runs sold out and are completed (I've seen pics of completed guitars anyways), the 8-string one can be done in the future but its going to take at least 6-8 commitments.
A bit off topic, so I apologize in advance, but is there any chance of doing either the Cherry Blossom or the Transparent Aqua again in the future?
Yeah if people want to jump on another run of them, I'm happy to do it. We're going to announce our next Ibanez 7 run in the coming days, stay tuned to our social media pages.
Will keep an eye out. I'm still kicking myself I missed the Cherry Blossom 7.
Yeah, I didn’t do the WCB 7, but I may still pick one up used in the future. I’d prefer a maple FB, but I love the pink!
And I’m down for an 8 string run if one ever materializes. I still think it would be epic to do an 8 string with trem run, but no one (except Schecter) has a CNC program for the Floyd, so I haven’t been able to get any individual luthiers to go for it, and Ibanez sure as hell won’t.
Would love an trem; I would absolutely be on board for that.
I ordered a custom Schecter 8 with a Floyd and they seem surprisingly flummoxed by it. I’m not sure the custom shop builders have used one before despite the Korean Hellraisers using them.
If somehow you guys can get this done with a single bridge humbucker im in. Fuck id buy two.
That’s that problem, I think. It’s too hard to get consensus on the specs. I’d ideally prefer a plain natural mahogany body and maple board with two hums. Others probably want that laminate top in pink or some other color. And then there’s what pickups etc.
$2k actually is a pretty good price, I think, but my eye starts to stray a bit as the specs wander from my ideal, which I think is true for everyone.
I never really understood the whole bridge only setup. Why not just use bridge only and never touch the switch? It's exactly how I use guitars with HSH setups. I never use the middle pickup so I just lower it and ignore it being there. It's also way too niche of a thing to happen for a run.
yeah for real. If they couldn't get enough people for an already niche 8 string run, there's no way they'd get enough for a 1 pickup or FR loaded version.
