    The Black Ice looks cool, imo. The 921 only came in red and blue before this summer release.

    Still no RG2 or S2 though, I wonder if Ibanez killed off the idea because of all the snooping?

    More hardtails is good. The new fixed bridge they have on these things is really comfy.

    There was someone who actually found and played one of the RG2s and posted a pic in the other giant Ibanez thread. There were never supposed to be any S2/S3s though :(

    I'm surprised that the guitars have made their way into a store before an official announcement...weird

    Nothing too spectacular, but I can dig it. At MusikMesse, they introduced Premiums with maple boards. Those were too sexy.

    I'm wondering about the RG2s as well.

    We JUST got the red/blue ones in stock in the states :scratch:

    Going to be awhile before we get them here. On a plus note, they have one locally in blue. Might go check it out.

    Boring. What the hell is that mega ugly fixed bridge all about?

    Come on Ibanez. 7 string Iceman please! Thanks.

    I agree, I was hoping for something that was reminiscent of summer rather than a Russian prison.

    haha! Now come on, you know that everybody complained about the other fixed bridges not looking right........right? (sarcasm)

    I actually like my 1421 bridge just fine. But I don't mind these.......I just don't like my premium neck as much as my prestige necks.

    Same way with my GC, but I have a notoriously shitty GC, so I'm not surprised.

    I actually like the look of the new fixed bridge. It looks like a trem, which I think is awesome because an RG just doesn't look right to me without some sort of Edge on it haha.
