    Is this official. Will Ibanez start selling them in retail stores in the States and Europe?

    It's official, look at the PDF MEGAUPLOAD - The leading online storage and file delivery service

    It's an European catalog but I'm positive it will be available in the US too, it's a signature you know...

    Hopefully it doesn't cost much over $2000.

    Disappointed... ibanez is cashing on meshuggah, another black guitar with its ugly head

    For me it is a fail... But I am sure it will reach way over $2g

    Most likely not at all. The fact only that it has a Lundgren in it will drive the price up. Scale length is probably the most interesting spec on this guitar for me. 29.4? I've never heard of Meshuggah going with this scale length so makes me wonder why they choice it. (inb4causethatswhattheywanted) Also where did that tuning come from? Is that what Meshuggah is tuning to on the new album?

    Looks pretty cool, if you're into that superstrat thing. If it sells well, maybe it will encourage the release of more longer-scale instruments, and everyone can stop bitching about how much they hate 27" 8-strings. =)

    Remember this is Ibanez, and as much as I love em they charge a bit more than they should for some models. The 2228 was damn expensive despite it's specs, so you can be sure this will be quite expensive compared to that.

    Meh... They had me at the 2228 anyway. AND they seem to be planning to release a passive pickup'd version of it so it might not be that bad. Plus the 2228 has a scale length I'm more interested in. All in all I think it's cool they have a variety of 8 strings to choose from now even if they don't have a lot of interesting colors.

    I'm also one to refinish a guitar in a heartbeat, so that might also have something to do with why I don't care what color it is. Most ppl only plan pickup swaps when they buy Ibbys. I typically plan a pickup swap AND a paint job/refinishing of some sort. :lol:

    It was expensive compared to the cheap Korean and Chinese made 8-strings that were so popular on here.

    If you want to see expensive, look at the $4k ESP STEF8. :lol:

    I see this guitar being in the $3k range, mainly because it's a signature model with some pretty exact specs. They will sell though. Look at all the guys who spent $$$$ more on custom builders to make them "Meshuggah Special" models.

    I guess the bridge and pickup are a little behind their usual position, so that the scale is 29.4" but the actual lenght from bridge to nut resembles the sound of a 30". Just guessing eh....

    O sorry if I worded what I wanted to say wrong. I meant that I really don't see it at all be under $2000. Biggest thing that will drive the price is simply who its a signature of and the Lundgrens.
