I really still can't comprehend why people are so let down by this even if this was already announced months ago and is not even out yet. Seeing all these negative posts getting lots of likes is making me feel depressed. I get it, you want them to bring back Prestige RGAs and they already did, too bad they have a trem (at least it's a Lo-Pro), only six strings, and are only available in Japan, and most of you can't even afford it (which I find laughable because they already own a bunch of expensive guitars and are very OCD about the quality control, which they're mostly skeptical about Ibanez's), and even if they're widely available there's still gonna be a way for them to bitch about it.
Personally, I love the aesthetics of the AZ and the slightly offset headstock, it gives it a more unique trait compared to the ones found on almost every solid-bodied model. I bet if it was reversed, they'll go nuts about it.
Speaking of Ibanez headstocks, how come I never hear anyone talk about the Roadcore series, let alone complain about not having the traditional sharp headstock?
Back to the AZ, the only thing I really don't like about it is the bulging backplate, hopefully this could be fixed when it's out. I have really good expectations for the series when it comes out and no doubts that there will be a good amount of NGD threads that will be posted here.
I think Ibanez has done really good in their non prestige lines this year. A lot of stuff I'd happily buy. At this point I'm more constrained by space then by budget tho. By all accounts they've been selling really well too.
The rgaix, the six, the rgat, gc's exclusive rgar. I'd happily own all of those.
