    look around for an RGD2127 FX, the fixed version of the 2127, even though I actually think old 7621's are "better", there is something in the RGD that just grabs me much more, hence why it's the only 7 string guitar that have lasted more than a year with me :lol:



    Damn, do you have any info on that early model?

    There's some info around the web, just search "Ibanez potato-caster" or similar.

    Management hated it, so it was moth-balled.

    The Talman does weirdly good in Japan and developing markets.

    Here's one more vote for the FR shape being rad, the Talman shape being fine, and the new AZS shape seeming aesthetically odd and redundant. But I'm not privy to the calculus so I'm sure they had their reasons.

    @MaxOfMetal I was indeed thinking of the JPX/JPXI with the RGD comments, having thought about it more and read the subsequent discussion/comments - fuck I was full of shit :lol: Sorry guys, I was completely off on that one!

    I still think the AZ comments are accurate, they are trying to tap into that boutique strat market given the pricing.

    As for Ibanez being in trouble, I think you are right - I view them as being in trouble as because a lot of what made them big they don't seem to be producing anymore (which I happen to be a fan of), when in reality they are doing just fine in the markets they are actually targeting.

    Don't think I thought much before posting that, sorry again guys!

    I knew someone would post about these, but in all honesty I don't of jazz or blues when I see 97% of the Ibanez guitar available in stores.

    It's definitely not my first thought when I think "Ibanez," but I feel like in reality I see just about as many hollowbodies and acoustics in local GC/Sam Ash stores than I do RGs. I can definitely imagine younger players associating Ibanez with more than rock and metal.

    Damn, now you mention maxxas.. I know a guy who has a Maxxas. He bought an Ibanez like 20 years ago. It was no known model but the serial stamped in the neck pocket said it was a Maxxas that somehow got mixed with Ibanez parts in Japan and ended up here with some dealer. Last I heard he has that guitar completely disassembled in his house for the past 10 years or so. Appareantly maxxas stuff is highly sought after by collectors. Never saw or played the guitar myself but he plays in a band with former bandmates of mine. That's how I know about it.

    Yup, I see mostly basses, acoustics, semis and hollows, and some RG’s and Jems. Not really one more than the other, but RG’s are in the minority usually.

    I can remember when RG’s first came out, thinking they were a sort of Super Strat copy.

    Ibanez was always about hollows and semi-hollows, a former Classical guitar maker that started importing some low end electrics later on.

    Obviously they’ve become one of the greatest
    Guitar companies worldwide, and the various Wizard necks are some of the most comfortable I’ve played.

    One of these is currently for sale on a Belgian used market app. Cool design, only I wouldn't know what to do with it :-D

    The Model # is IMG2010
    Research it on youtube or the internet. You can also play it without the peripherals. Has clean pickups, and sounds nice straight into an amp.

    On the subject of their hollow bodies. If you go on jazz guitar forums most of the users use ibanez.
