    Can't believe it's almost November and this thread hasn't been started, shame on you all!

    Wishes? Leaks? Info?....all the usual stuff.

    All i've heard so far is there's something different coming for the JEM line that's been shrouded in secrecy (I'm hoping for a new MIJ UV too), and there's that whole "custom shop" thing apparently coming. We shall see...

    Wishes? I wish they'd do something with the S series...

    Edit: Guess I should clarify, something new with the prestige line, by new I mean a 7 lol.
    S7 with a lo pro edge, Mmmmm

    The universe will be 30 in 2020 I believe. Created in 89’ but mass produced and sold in 90’. So a 30th Anniversary should be in the works. Maybe a MIJ UV, maybe something Lochness green? Well green actually. As only JEMs were Lochness green. Im personally hoping for a unbranded Korn K-7 reissue that has all the same specs, no K7 inlay and new colors. That would be epic. Thats my taste though.lol I also am shocked there is no leaks so far.

    I would like to see:

    J custom AZ
    Fixed bridge J custom and less tree of life-inlays
    New S series prestige models
    Ebony fretboards, preferably without inlays.

    I'm hoping for more crazy stuff. I love their bass stuff that's off the wall, yet still production. Their really nice guitars are way out of my price range, but their cool basses are surprisingly affordable.

    All I want from them is an Rga 7 string with a lo pro edge, blank black ebony fretboard, with EMG's, Duncan or Fishman soapbar pickups. Oh, and a heavy basswood body. Enough cheap fake mahogany already. I've been pestering them for literally 20 years now. After about 5 years they finally came out with an Rga but never a blank black ebony board model with a LoPro in a 7 string. The closest they came was a $4k J-custom 6 string with a TOL inlay. I think they purposely aren't building it to piss me off. Yep, It's all a conspiracy against me :lol: If they come out with this I will buy two of them and have my tech mod them. I can't believe Ibanez's never ending, infinitely bad taste in guitars and colors, which would be understandable if you at least made the obvious basic plain stuff people want. At least come out with an Rg-752 with a blank black ebony board so I can part it out.
    - All I want is that neck. Basically an Rg7-cst neck, 3 or 5pc, I don't care. Preferably 3. That's it. If only one thing ever came out from Ibanez ever again, That's all I would want. The only way to improve that neck is to make it a top mount nut. Keep the volute too. I have no doubt if they offer it they will screw it up somehow, like with the skunk stripe and no volute on the Iron label necks and a 400mm raidus instead of the 430. They always do enough to peek you're interest and then do something to totally screw it up and break the deal for you. I have no doubt this year will be any different. Why is it so impossible to get something so freaking basic? There's a ton of people that want it and their all asking you to do less work. End of crybaby rant.

    I second the wild bass stuff, but I really want the bass VII back but more affordable like the sc6crossover. 10 string haha and a rerelease of the 12 string RG. Also an HSH XL 7 but in the standard or iron label line. Oh but most of all my dream guitar a semi hollow 7 string 35.5 scale like the AS73-7

    I missed my chance on the AFJ957 and AEL207. I'd like to see a 7- and 8-string jazz and acoustic guitar.

    Isn't the big Ibanez 2020 rumour the new "J-Custom - Custom Shop" ?

    Steve Vai has said he's doing "something big" for 2020 as well.

    Josh Rand's custom AZ with a Gibraltar bridge. I would love to see Ibanez do production models like this (the finish is something up to your taste though).

    Well, since even BC Rich is starting to make production models with evertune, I'd like to see one or two axion label/prestige models with this option, but my hopes are pretty low

    We're on the same page here. Would love it also not to cost a eye or a kidney...

    Yeah, I missed that train because I grabbed an RG2027XVV instead. I had to... My funds aren't that healthy so I can grab 2x guitars per year...:oops:

    Just new solid metallic colours for the 2204 AZ. Maybe a SSS version too?
