    seems to be from the same line that the guys at Polyphia got too.

    I like the headstock matching the neck/fretboard theme. Like the whole thing is made out of the same wood. Prob roasted mapple, but I recon would looks best if it would be a darker color like rosewood.

    I also like the Polyphia guys guitars better with a single color body

    It looks like a homemade guitar that someone stuck an Ibanez sticker on.

    I like em.

    Though is it just me or does it look rather reminiscent of the proto shape for Jason Beckers?

    EDIT: Hadn't realised how short the top horn was till Boojakki posted that pic. Perspective of the first photo makes me think of the old proto.

    Excuse him, he's german. We germans look like this when we're happy... :rolleyes:
    But really: He's a super nice guy and a killer player/composer, check him out (youtube) if you don't know about him.

    After playing Suhr for a good part of his career I'm sure he knows exactly what he wants out of a guitar. Good for him, I hope he is getting a good deal with Ibanez. He's a badass player and his writing sets him apart.

    Less chrome and offset dots would have me gassing for one. Cool guitar.

    ...and that Becker proto is beyond cool.

    Yeah definitely looks like the same from the Polyphia guys. It is like a suhr, ebmm and an ibanez had a love child. I personally think it looks great.

    I still don't get any relation to EBMM when people make that connection, this is almost fully in the Suhr Modern camp for me. I think it looks good, and it's a classy look.

    Yes, and if they want to bring it as a new line of models, I'm all for it!

    Probably the roasted maple neck, the 2-point bridge, and the colors. Some features the JP-series have.

    My hope is when these drop that they have a top tier option. I would be very interested in a prestige level version of one of these.

    Kinda interested to see if they put any trem wizardy on these in the future, or keep it vintage-ish. Not a huge ibanez fan but they sure know how to make a good trem.

    Are you Suhr that's an Ibanez?



    I realize that isn't even how you pronounce Suhr but I'm using it as a terrible pun anyway.
