    Why the pickup rings on the S series... WHY? :( It looks so clean in the one prestige fixed bridge version and the 7 strings, why insist on putting rings on all others ??? When is this going to stop ???

    Really? Are all Fixed Edge3 parts interchangable with Lo Pro parts? The fine tuners on my RG2228 seem to turn less "fine" than they once did, but maybe its my imagination.

    When it happens, pics will be posted. And many of them. Sadly, I still have a POD, a cab, and refinishing stuff for my Agile 8 to buy before I can begin saving for this. So definitely a few good months away.

    I like trying to say them out loud.
    That's it, I'm putting googly eyes on all my guitars.

    Exactly what I did. Makes all the difference for the bridge!

    Welllll it looks like my doom burst is going to be getting a twin! That s5527 color is ridiculous. My car will never get finished! I hate these threads!

    @ a curry,

    did you compare your doom burst to any RG7 ? since it has a very slim body, i wonder if it sounds heavy at all ?

    I'll know in two days. But it may not be the best of comparisons because I have an rg2228m w/ aftermaths and the s5527 will have a d'activator/liquid fire combo

    The s series prestige I played years ago sounded massive.

    The fine tuners are interchangeable, though I'm not sure they'd be any smoother, they might be.

    If they unveil a Lo Pro Edge version of this (or something similar), it'll be the first time in over 10 years I've purchased a NEW Ibby.

    Those walnut Iron Labels look neat.

    Hard to see the trem used on the new 7420, but it looks more like the Lo-TRS than an Edge Zero. That's be great if it is because that trem can be swapped for an OFR. So we'd have a reasonably inexpensive mahogany body ready to accept the 68 mm necks and an OFR7.

    Those S-Series look nice but will undoubtedly be either Premium / Iron Label and probably not available in Oz...

    In a similar vein the new models with Australian Blackwood tops probably won't be available in Oz either.

    The S7's shown above are different colors of the S7721PB. So the standard Indonesian (I think) line. Not Iron Label or Premium.

    That fanned bass looks so awesome, but seems to me like a strange choice... I'd think a Prestige 8-string guitar would be a more logical place for a multiscale. I'm just grumpy though. I mean, can we get some production multiscales already? Like, above-Agile quality? Fanned frets seem pretty dang popular in the boutique market... and such things have a way of trickling down.

    I've been waiting for them to release a response to the recent gain of popularity in the 1527m. Maple is always a good thing!

    So, I've checked a few times now due to murmurs and posts of Xiphos, but I've yet to see anything.

    Is Ibanez holding out or is that not a new model, just a one-off floating around?
