    I used to have all the maple boarded 7 models Ibanez made. Now I only have half of them. I am so excited.

    Its not ridiculous at all. It's a Japanese made, signature, high end guitar. That's like saying a Porche costing more than 50k is overpriced.

    Nobody's asking because they all have googled the shit out of it already ;)

    This seems to be the Euro catalog:

    And non surprisingly, Europe does not get the cool models....again....sigh

    Marbled in the guitar world means figured/streaked. So I'm guessing it will be a mix of light brown to black streaks.

    The oil finish they are using on the Maple 7 puts their J-custom necks to shame. Hopefully the Blackwood topped 6 has it aswell.

    The ziricote veneer on the Premium 7 looks awesome but we are missing most of the better US models.

    Because people are realizing that a good fixed bridge just works better and takes less time without any real drawbacks.

    That is why I asked, to get your already done google research work... :hbang:

    Those 8 string acoustic guitars (steel string core) in this link are odd, they don't feel like the electric ones, double strings, maybe...?

    The specs explain more than the name !
    please Ibanez, stop those illegible references, better have some memorize(able) names :wallbash:

    RG652AHMNGB is a bit ridiculous sounding.

    It looks more like a licence plate number than a guitar.

    Yes but we could get some models in the EU. You can always just order from a US store and pay the shipping + import fees.

    Interesting at least that there's no DCM100. Europe had it last year, right? There seems to be confusion over whether it's actually limited production or not.

    Haha. No draw backs other than you can't dive or pull up notes or add that beautiful warbling vibrato to cords that only a floating trem can do.

    I long for an RG752 Oiled Mahogany Galaxy White Trans Finish Black Burst Quilt.

    AKA, the RG752OMGWTFBBQ.

    When I read BKP in the image my mouth foamed, but then I checked the specs and it has EMGs and not BKPs :(
    Anyway, so glad the Xiphos is back. :)

    It's overpriced as is, bro, I couldn't imagine what would importing do to my wallet. But, fingers crossed that some of these will be the part of the EU lineup.

    Although I'm losing faith that Ibanez will ever fully expand their business to a small EU market of 500 million people :lol:
