I had one briefly in '99. I cant believe I let that guitar go....
Hey, I'm glad to hear that. Maybe it improved with later production batches, but the first few were horrible. I heard many complaints from people with similar issues.
Didn't The Axe Palace also say that they sent back every single M80M they ever got?
Could well be with the earlier ones. They have one in stock now.
What guitar did you put the sfty-3 8 in?
Wonder if Ibanez will ever do a non sig 29-30" scale guitar?
Would love to see more ibby's with the rounder Wizard 3 neck. I don't want it on everything just a non-sig S would be fine. I'd be down for the current sig that has it if I could be sure of the quality.
I'm just wondering what you mean by "rounder" exactly? Because rounder makes me think of the more traditional C-shaped necks that are on the new Talman Prestiges but they still feel like an Ibanez neck to me and I love them so if you haven't you should give those a try. If not that then do you just mean thicker? Because if so why would you like a company that only really does ultra thin U-shaped necks? There's plenty of other great companies out there that would give you more of what you want. It took me a long time to figure out that I really only liked Ibanez, because no matter how good a guitar was I would always end up preferring the feel of a Prestige neck. But if that's not what you want, try elsewhere.
He may mean the "squareness" of some non-prestige Ibanez necks. They're quite thin, but the shoulders are not round but rather somewhat squared off. Like playing a 2x4. I'm not sensitive to neck thickness, but I do think those square shoulders uncomfortable.
You mean like the Premium and Iron Label and Standard where they are a bit more of a hard D-shaped kind of curve? I can see that, and they who reason I love the looks of some of those guitars but never buy them because everyone I've tried has had the same feel that I don't like. However, while I dislike the Indonesian stuff I do really like the Chinese Artcore factory stuff because they have a nice contour to the neck and a lacquer that doesn't feel thick or sticky like some. Have an AS93 and AR325 that I love apart from my Prestige stuff. But that's also why I was asking him to clarify because I would try to help with other options for them to try if I knew their preferences.
Gotta say i'm expecting alot (other than the 777 reissues) this year for the whole 30th anniversary thing, the suspense is killin me.
Did anyone see that LACS FR model? They've been including that body shape in more stuff lately, first with that Iron Label and now more people I guess are starting to dig them. Would be sick to see another new Prestige FR, maybe with a trem or something.
Bring the Ballbacks back!
I think it would have been cooler if they just done a limited-run of the Stoneman to see how they would sell but make in Japan or the U.S. (that would be an absurd amount of money) just to see how they would do.
Personally, I rather pay more and get the highest quality out of a guitar like that than rather a Premium model.
Just my opinion. Cool though they are releasing it. Always hoping they would.
Which artist's guitar was it? There aren't many Ibanez artists with custom FR series guitars. (Sounds like you might've seen my post on Facebook the day before yesterday.)
They actually have NOT been including the FR body shape more lately. It is still hardly used because it is still hardly in-demand. There is the Prestige FR6UC, the Iron Label FRIX6FEAH, and the FR365 Standard model which is a little more old-school. Those are the only FR series guitars that are currently available. There also is the BBM1 Ben Bruce signature model, but it isn't made anymore. All of these guitars are from 2014-2015.
Back in 2008-2011, there were the Prestige FR1620 and FR2620 models. They were the first models of the FR series when the series was introduced. Later around 2013-2014, Ibanez briefly made two cheaper versions of the models that were Indonesian-made and almost identical in specs (minus obvious stuff like the neck, electronics, etc.) The FR320 was a cheaper version of the FR1620, and the FR420 was a cheaper version of the FR2620.
Aside from that, there aren't that many FR models out there.
Speaking of FRs
This in a 7 string would be sweet, but unlikely to happen
damn i thought for a second it was an EVH ripoff !
I'll be happy with any FR model with a lo-pro edge at this point
Definitely unlikely to happen. LACS custom built for Magnus Olsson.
Yeah you know I may have seen it, was it like a dark tobacco sunburst looking FR with a regular gold 6-saddle trem? It looked sorta like the FR365. But thanks for the detailed post - I think they are great guitars and would love to own the prestige FR1620 with the tight end!
Perleguitars on ebay makes 7 string bodies.
With ....ty QC and ridiculous turnaround times
Inspiration always comes from somewhere . Highly unlikely though.
