    Depending on who you ask there were anywhere between 48 (24 each color) and 200 (100 each color) of the RG7680 LTD-1/2.

    Fuck me that's gorgeous. I've actually consider buying that
    Edit: Looking at it again, do those cutouts for the jack and the trem look super jank or is it just me

    Might be just that they are not painted black in the cavity, which would be my preference. The output jack edge looks like it might have a chip in it but that could be from use.

    Damn, I'm not even a Nita Strauss fan, but I would buy the shit out of it and play it too. YES with a trem system even.

    Hmmm...

    I wonder if this means, more new AZ colors. I’ve been in the market for the prestige sunburst AZ2204 but if winter NAMM gives us more colors this might be the perfect time to wait...

    I think there'll be new AZ finishes for sure.

    Sometimes I think Ibanez just uses whatever discounted leftover paint they can get for the sake of saving money.

    I think this quote from Tom Howard of Bethesda is relevant to the Ibanez/black super strat conversation:

    "If you want us to stop releasing Skyrim ports, stop buying them"

    I was talking more about the other colors like the oranges, lime green, yellow, the blue toilet water with barf chunks in it burl tops, the green with a blue burst thing. Bizzare stuff I've never heard anyone in my life actually wish or ask for or anyone actually praise either. It's like it was randomly generated by a computer or something. I may have been for all we know. I'd rather just have plain boring colors or natural wood colors than stuff like this that's out now. Better yet, just offer them plain, make limited runs and special orders of prepainted ones, and let everyone have what they want. I'd rather save a few hundred bucks and give it to someone else to paint the guitar how I want it or paint it myself than not buy the thing because it looks that ugly. Removing paint and redoing it is a much more labor intensive task than just starting with bare wood. Again, My wish is Ibanez would just sell parts like a neck or body etc and let me build the guitar I want. It's never gonna happen so I'll just get along with other stuff like I have been. I hope this year they have something I'd actually want to buy though.

    Most people do.

    Which is why there's been so little RG752DY or RGD3127PWF/ROF action on here, but a handful of black RGR752 and dark blue RG2027XL NGDs.

    The folks who want wild colors either don't buy anything, or they're so picky it has to be the exact shade of neon so they go project/custom.

    If I could mesh with ibby necks I'd grab some of the more obnoxious finishes like desert yellow or that fluorescent green. I love ridiculous and obnoxious finishes.
