Design is starting to grow on me. Not a fan of the pickguard version though.
It was mentioned earlier in this thread that it was the Seymour Duncan Duality pickups. You could see the small "S" logo on the pickup in that picture. I'm not sure about the single coils in the HSS one but I assume they're also Duncans.
Side by side picture of Polyphia's RGs and the prototypes, posted on their Facebook page. The most visible differences are the headstocks and horns.
I really want the blue one.
man that two color or tri-"burst" if you can call it like that its hideous. Specially when you put it next to a properly done 2 tone burst
yeah yeah I know "Fender" blah blah bullshit..... we are not in the 50-70s anymore.....
I prefer these polyphia ones to the MM prototype ^ . Those baked maple (or at least faked to look like) necks look sick, and they look better without pickguards IMO.
I do think though, why not just play a Fender? Or a Charvel? I kind of dig this aesthetic though, so I'm torn.
Because Ibanez. I think they're aiming for an aesthetic between an RG and a Talman, so it looks more Fender-inspired than a superstrat. The RT/Andy Timmons series is the closest one but they still look like RGs.
Guthrie Govan? Suhr? Sorry... Never heard these names...
On the other hand, I'm really gassing for Lee's green one, especially after seeing the expected specs. The bridge looks really high quality. Patiently waiting for NAMM.
going by the way the guys at Polyphia play, it must be a good bridge. Their music is like 80% tremolo stuff
I don't doubt it, looks really solid. Will be trying one without a doubt.
I can't get on with the minor headstock change. Irks me something fierce, maybe because it's so minimal?
It looks more round and less sharp than the usual Ibanez headstock. It also kinda looks like a Tele headstock was fused with it.
same as the horns, they are more rounded. I think It goes well with the look of the horns/body. Bit less "agresive" more "fender/traditional" if you will. But yeah bit weird as Ibanez tend to not change their headstocks regarding on the body shape
Still think the necks should be darker. Ideally a full rosewood or wenge neck would look amazing with that blue. I know thats how dark a mapple roasted go, oh well.... not my cup of tea. Too "brown" for me.
Hot... Do want
This will likely be my next guitar. Hopefully they keep a super fast neck on it. More classic aesthetic w/ a wicked fast neck and high performance spec sounds ideal to me. I tried a few suhrs and the neck didn't really feel right to me. A wizard neck is one of my favorite neck profiles.
I agree it's not the most appealing colour, but it makes a great touring instrument. I once toured an EBMM with roasted neck in the Canadian winter. Hot venues and freezing outside. All my other guitars moved like crazy every day but the EBMM was always perfect. Sold me on the concept.
Personally... loving it more and more. Just really hope they come with locking tuners... then it would be complete!
These are growing on me more now. Looking forward to getting one once they're released.
To me they look like old harmony cheap beginner guitars. Not digging them at all.
It's just a basic strat, come on.
In other words, it's Ibanez's take on a Charvel.
Honestly, this is more Ibanez take on a Suhr Modern. The Ibanez Talman TM330 is more likely their take on a strat.
