Can't really compare an Indonesian S to an MIJ RG.

How about a MIK SZ to a MIJ JEM?

The SZ I got in ‘05 for $500 was flawless, the $1650 JEM7V I got in 1997 had the wrong color pickup screws, the middle pickup wasn’t functioning and the lion’s claw route is a mess of sawdust/wood burs .

I was just so damn happy to have the JEM I didn’t care enough to return it and eventually took care of the issues on my own, minus the lion’s claw.

I was pointing out that an S521 and an RG521 are not the same line / spec of guitar but with a different body shape, despite both being "521". 🤷‍♂️

Looking through the Ibanez releases and a few thread pages back is it correct to conclude there were no new 7 or 8 strings for 2022?

@MaxOfMetal Ah, ok my mistake. Thanks. Wish I liked the AZ necks, guess I'll wait another trip around the sun.

Yeah, I don't think that many people were stoked about it. I think it's kinda ugly, but I suppose others like the cheapo burl look.

Yea burl is not my thing either personally. I like the prestige blue model cosmetically at lot, though.

Yeah, the Prestige ones nailed the esthetic, I feel.

The Standard/Essential ones too. It's just the Premium that are an "acquired taste."

The blue top fixed bridge model with the swamp ash body has been available since 2021 I believe. I have been tempted.

So you're saying that they've photoshopped only that guitar to appear darker? Why would they bother?

In photography and videography the editor plays with color lightning and shadows, so in the video when they are editing with computers and software they add colorgrading so the colors change, the same with photos, yhe photo that you shared was edited in lightroom
