    I love wenge. I would like a new mahogany body and maple fb Ibanez 7 string. I don't want to pay extra for another paper thin veneer. At least my 8 string with the bubinga top has binding to cover up the fact that it is a paper thin veneer. :noway:

    Give me a painted mahogany body with maple fb and I'd be all over it.

    I'm complaining a lot in this thread and sorry about that, but two new maple board ERGs and one looks like an end table and the other looks like it has herpes or something. Thinking I'll pass on both.

    Wow, some great options in the Prestige line-up for a change. I look forward to them not being available in Europe. :lol:

    I like the Ibanez RG752WMFX and the Ibanez Prestige RG852 (Blue 8 string). I think those look like great guitars. :coffee:

    I do find the neck description of the Ibanez Prestige S5520 interesting though: 5pc Maple/ Walnut “Super Wizard High Performance.” Finally, we won't have to deal with those slow, clunky, old Wizard necks anymore! :nuts:

    That burl 8 will be mine, and is begging for white ionizers.

    Wow! Incredible models !!

    I love that Ibanez Prestige RG852!
    FINALLY an 8 strings with a REAL fixed bridge! ;)

    Not a huge fan of this damn Edge FX... screw and saddles issues on some RG models, even on the TAM 100...

    Do you think this wonderful RG 8 will be available in Europe ? :/

    That's the same bridge that's on all 852's from last year.

    The double locking system is really nice for 8's, I absolutely love fine tuners on a fixed, but, the Edge3 string lock screws are soft and break easy. Replace with Lo Pro screws once and they'll be good for life.

    I actually wish that the 852 had the Edge FX, but either one is fine by me. That guitar is too nice to pass up.
