    Kinda warming up to it now. The Magic Touch seems like a wise choice. Ibanez used it in some of their past archtops, so it will be able to do that tele neck pup jazz thing. Additionally, they may have put a mini humbucker so the split mode would be similar to an undersized tele neck pup. Now I can't wait for clips to arrive.

    Is it a regular thing that the US market models eventually come to the EU market or should I not get my hopes up? Sti pining at that cheap pink sparkle RG standard series model..

    Just email the distributor for your region. They choose which models they import, but are usually open to ordering something "out of region" if you have cash in hand.

    I did at thomann and they said they couldn't get it. So my question was more if they (as in Ibanez) sometimes change their minds on which models come to which markets / distributors (as you cna see I have no idea how big international brands work)

    I wouldn't hold your breath, they'll probably be scalped on Reverb anyway.

    The RGB we already had last year, North America got them new for this year. If the model you want sells incredibly well over there then I guess maybe next year will also be here. But don't ask me how often those things happen.

    Thomann is not the distributor AFAIK, they are just a shop that gets guitars from the distributor.

    I swear you guys wanna make some money, seems like you could see whatever it is I'm selling at the moment and wait for it's value to triple in few months. Just sold a Matchless DC30 so I fully expect them to go out of business and all their amps to soon be worth like $8,000.

    I don’t scalp. If I wanted to make money, I’d work on my masters degree and all my project management certs

    This will be it for now. Possibly something new/cool announced next quarter and so on but the bulk of this year's line-up is locked in. The pandemic probably has a bit to do with it however this is one of the most mediocre years for Ibanez that I can remember.

    I bet they'll sell a ton of those AZ 7-strings but really was hoping for some more Prestige RG 7's. Oh well.

    Just surprised they can make so many variations of rgs but never a blank ebony fretboard rg prestige with a low pro...

    On the AZs, if I switch the hyperions for a different set of Seymour Duncan’s, will the dyna-mix5 switching still work?

    Assuming all you change is the pickups, and the pickups are splittable, and you don't mess up the wiring... Yes.
