So you're saying that they've photoshopped only that guitar to appear darker? Why would they bother?
i can show you one of my guitars in its case is without editing, with me playing it was poorly edited but you see the change in color, the last one where i’m standing has a better editing in lightroom, is what photographers do. 93A9D354-303C-46FA-9D2B-CBA789C2EE90.jpeg 979422DF-9DA6-42BD-BA3F-6DA09F72DA7B.jpeg 819CFC88-4F43-40D6-8575-4520FADDFB92.jpeg

No, just that the guitar is obviously blue in that photo which is clearly quite dark compared to Ibanez's renderings.

I want Ibanez to rerelease an RG3120. Offset dot inlays, rosewood fretboard, black headstock, and powder coated hardware.

Also, now that CITES no longer applies for musical instruments, I hope rosewood will make a return.
Ibanez has used rosewood on some models since cites ended (e.g. the 8XXX series J. Customs).

I bought a J. Custom RG8520 in 'Sodalite' (dark blue) 1.5 years ago, as it was the closest I could get to the 'Twilight Blue' RG3120 that I'd wanted for years. Not identical, but overall a slightly superior guitar with very similar specs.

Just found these two Rosewood topped RGs that just released mid year. Sadly Japan only, per usual. Would love the Edge one with black hardware. RG3070BR and RG3021BR.

Anyone with dealer contacts hear anything more about the release dates of the powder blue PIA and the new Jake Bowen? I have a deposit down on the PIA. I know they said November’ish initially.

Apparently Brazilian Rosewood too. Probably also why Japan only.
