Btw, are those pickup routs a little too big and rough?I'm worry about wobbly pickups.
As someone who nearly ruined a guitar trying to install an EMG 7H set, about time someone fixes that problem.
Yea,swapping pickups with metal cover would solve the problem, but the stock nazgul set are innocent.
Oh my! I'm in love!
No, I don't think so. It's just big enough so that you can fit covers if you so desire. My horizon custom has the same style and it's not wobbly at all. If fact they don't move at all. The sugizo custom does too.
Hey everyone, I just saw this 1000 series Eclipse on Thomann and it says it's MII. https://images.static-thomann.de/pics/bdb/431670/13550856_800.jpg
Does anyone else know anything about the 1000 series being shifted to Indonesia?
Several lines have been moving there over time. I wouldn’t be surprised to see mostly $1k+ come out of WMI in the near future. Looks like the Indonesian plants have gotten their QC up enough that a lot of brands are shifting there as WMI’s capacity is reached.
The LTD Deluxe line (1000 series) has been shifting to Indonesia for nearly the last 6 to 8 months.
Any MIK is likely new old stock.
It has nothing to do with quality, it's about WMI shifting thier business model to meet the South Korean economy.
They have to pay better wages and provide better benefits to retain staff now, which means that they need to make more per unit, which means that they're focusing on products with higher margins, such as OEM direct (no retailers) for smaller brands and boutique builders' import lines.
2019 Stef B8
Just got it brand new
Let me tell you guys, a lot of ibanez universe and 7620 had the effect on some of the more fluent guitarists or technically able, but remember when you grabbed the universe and was like , “where’s the 7th string? I see it, but the neck doesnt feel much different at all??” Type of deal if you will
With the carpenter, it feels like the universe of 8 strings and I NEVER felt that way about the, not even the 2228, arguably the ONE, the ibanez flagship that started it all, and everyone followed Copied and loved.
But i mean those are amazing 2228 for the money, back when they launched they were 2k, only 1.5kl ess than a ESP custom..... but let me tell you
With the right setup, right strings, right pickups, right rig, and right guitar , you can actually have a tone that is on par the M8M
most people would say no way, but i really beleive it
ITs like i have to remember not to use the 8th string when i transition to 7 string parts.....
It’s a really amazing neck, super thin U esp style, you know their custom shop by now, and i forgot the model the B8 is based on but anyway, its truly a piece....its thin and light , the only weight coming from the Fluence pickups
I love the details: the usb charger, the all around bindingof neck and stock, the curves of the ESP body style which help with the cutaways, and then to know they have the carbon graphite in the neck makes me feel more comfortable about setups
Anyone else see these around or have one? Particularly looking for the 2016 edition
Just wanted to give a heads-up that I came across this rare Kamikaze in great condition today:
From time-to-time I see the usual brown/black one, but the blue/silver almost never comes up.
Of course, it's a pretty awful time to try to get guitars out of Japan (to the US especially).
ishibashi seems to be saying they will export only to the UK right now. Not sure if anyone can successfully export anywhere else or if it's just Ishibashi having the trouble.
I want that darn Asuka Telecaster and probably can't get it out of Japan.
Then they probably rely on EMS by default, which is backlogged for months for US shipments. UPS/Fedex/DHL seem to still operating on regular timetables JP->US but have jacked their pricing 3-4x. I have a guy interested in one of my guitars, and I'm currently trying to sort out if there's any way to ship it out to him without paying $900, so can let you know if I figure it out.
lol, I got a phone notification of the Asuka tele today. And I already got yelled at last night by my gf for touching like 8 different cans of UCC coffee to find one with Rei on it...I'm really getting hit with this eva marketing.
yeah that marketing... A 6-string has basically negative value to me as it takes up space that could be used for an 8-string. But... Asuka!!!
TL;DR: He loves it.
Damn, it's already gone, but that converts to $1877 USD, that was a good price!
