    Hmmm gotta be honest, that combination makes the guitar look like a toy. I think I'd prefer it to be that purple but with an ebony board and everything else blacked out.

    Not a fan of the purple and I prefer a Hardtail these days but that is one nice looking neck.

    If ibanez would offer this color along with the “lazer blue matte” for the fixed bridge iron label rgd, i’d definitely go for it.

    Despite the scale length being too long, satin finish, and maple board—three things I don’t like—I kinda want one just because it looks so cool.

    You pick the 2jz every time. Guitars can be custom built any time so long as the money is present.

    I had a purple neon RG550 and that color is awesome. The RGD body would be a tough sell to me at $2k. I'm really still pretty salty I missed the WG Purple Doomburst RG awhile back

    I like the White pups on the Maple board, but then don't like the Purple finish with the White pups, but then like the Matte Purple finish with the (maybe it's the photos) dark-ish looking Chrome hardware.

    Dislike the RGD shape in general but even if I liked it I feel like this is one of the weaker looking Axe Palace Ibanez runs.

    If you get the turbo you can probably win some street races and afford the guitar. :thinking:

    Purple seems to become an AxePalace signature, but satin finish is a no-go for me
    Solid axe though :cheers:

    I was hoping for a Red Doom RGR752FM with a hard tail. Maybe next time

    I like purple, but I prefer metallic.
    RGD are build for metallic finishes.

    Goddamn that’s pretty. The only tiny little change I would make is white pearloid tuner buttons.

    Honestly, I really like the DSY one a whole lot more. This would have worked a lot better as a gloss translucent finish over swamp ash.

    Edit: or a gloss purple flake.

    Thank you! We try to keep mixing it up and offer things that we hope people will like.

    <3

    Happy to!

    Trying to keep the costs down. Its still $500 less than the 2020 RGDR model thats been released.

    Stock pickups are included if you do a pickup swap. And we're installing it for free along with a pro setup. Only are paying for the pickups themselves :)

    We cant ship to Russia anyway, so crisis averted :)

    Keep in mind bro that its a computer generated mockup that Ibanez provided us. In real life its going to look 100x better. Every single time we post these mockups for our runs, people make similar comments, and then say "holy shit" when real life pics emerge :D

    It's $500 less than the 2020 RGD7 model Ibanez just released, and only $200 more than last years RGD3127 base model. Prices go up a bit each year I'm afraid. It was hard for us to even keep this under $2000, frankly.

    Ibanez would never have agreed to those specs anyways. The options are supremely limited with them, even this took 4-5 months of back and forth to convince them to do :) They're not as chill as ESP or Schecter rgearding options on runs.

    It does need to have the nut shim adjusted and I am undecided on the Fusion Edge pickups.

    But, I do have an effin' purple RGDR!

    (Excuse the Miku.. I have been listening to too much UTSU-P lately.)
