I thought the Talmans were more like the offset Fenders like the Jaguar/Mustang/Jazzmaster.
wait a damn second. I think I am commenting on the wrong picture.
EDITED AGAIN: Yeah, I don't know what the hell I was looking at but it wasn't the guitars I am seeing so many pics of. Either that or I was seriously medicated and was seeing shit. Looking at the pictures without seeing double I like the body but I'm not feeling the headstock. But then again for me headstocks are just something I think is really hard to get right. And I would just prefer a regular Ibanez headstock that I know and love. But that's how I am with all brands. I want a strat on a strat and a open book on a Gibson and a pointy on a Jackson.
From a design perspective, yes. And the older talman models definitely were more geared towards that, and even gone through some quirky specs. The current talmans, while still maintaining design, are more functionally geared towards the traditional strat/tele side.
For me the new talmans are cool because I can play strats and teles whilst still playing Ibanez.
Chon's Rig Rundown. Erick shows off his prototype here and says the neck is chunkier and has smaller frets.
I get a strong feeling those dudes are not gear heads.
But if ibanez can drop that no nonsense matte black colorway in a prestige, I am in.
Some more about the Ibby Proto (Martin Miller content) from GuitCon, not that much new about the guitar itself though, but nice anyway...
Great vid I really enjoyed it.
Yea, so there are locking tuners and the Duncans seem not to be Dualities but some other new (passive?) ones, just with the same new logo.
Anyway, I so dig this exact guitar as it is and I really want it. *sigh*
I've heard today Ibanez seem to plan doing an upper-priced Prestige model (~2800-3000k) and an upper-priced Premium model (~1200-1500k) for this model.
I like the look of these but why why why would you spend 3k on a Suhr clone when you can get a Suhr for less than that...
[toilet flushing sound]
Where did you get information for this? I don't believe Ibanez would charge J. Custom levels of prices for something that looks basic spec-wise unless it's some limited spot model. I would only trust this if it's from dealers who are ready to have them in stock, which I doubt they are doing it until around early next year.
Not everyone lives in places where you can buy a Suhr, there are definitely no dealers for them here.
HP42 said it in a livestream. When he talked to Martin Miller at GuitCon, Miller said that's what, model-wise, seems to be planned. The prices are estimates from there, I would take this with a grain of salt, nothings fix yet... And these are also not the street prices, as I see it... But also, as we know, Ibanez want to get their prices in the Prestige and Premium line up :/
I wouldn't be surprised if those prices are close. Prices have been going up across the board for all brands. Ibanez' current Prestige-level sigs are in the 2500-3000 range. The roasted necks on these will probably account for some price increase over other models.
If it really is 3k I redact my statement and will just order a suhr
Most likely the MSRP, the street price might be different so don't expect it to be J. Custom levels of expensive when it drops. Or you could just not be picky about countries of origin and try out the Indo-made ones instead.
Yeah I am hoping that 3k is msrp for one with a nice top and that street for a painted prestige is closer in line with what they have rgs at.
I have nothing against indo guitars but wouldn't consider buying one at that price when you can get a US made prs s2 for that price.
Just to keep you guys updated, Ibanez Japan retweeted this image of the guitar in solid red with a pearl white pickguard.
For me the pickguard makes it just look like a strat copy that you would get in a starter pack.
I was thinking the same thing, looks very cheesy imo.
I really hope these aren't super expensive, would rather a J Custom if they are priced around the same as one. I was thinking maybe around 2k RRP and 1500 street, otherwise not really worth it for the features imo.
