    Love what Ibanez does with basses and the workshop series. I wish they would be that adventurous with guitars, but I guess bass players are more forward thinking.

    Freaking love this way of doing the logo.

    I really hope they stick with it and don't go for some chintzy inlay or sticker moving forward.

    I hope this means Ibanez will dabble into the headless market. I’d much rather go for a prestige Ibanez headless if it’s priced similarly to a Strandberg. Also heard that ergo designs are very popular with the Japanese market.

    Headless Ibanez, weird... but interesting. It would mean that bigger brands go to manufacturing them more. I wouldn't imagine something like ESP or Jackson to do it, but it fits to Ibanez.

    Shit, that's the first headless bass I've ever seen that didn't look like goofy nonsense

    Uh oh... please don't tell me this year revolves around Ibanez headless guitars. That bass is freaking sweet though.

    What I meant was the modern headless market. It would be interesting what they would come up with as far as proprietary Ibby hardware for them.

    Pretty cool to see a headless design; but as someone with only Ibanez guitars, that doesn’t really identify as one to me. Still interested, just wondering if the headstock is that important or if I’m just a boomer.

    Holy shit, that is quite the markup. Even the most expensive Gotoh 510 Evolution bridge, with the X-Gold finish, is $132 from Japarts.

    It's done on purpose as they [Ibanez] don't want to be full-time parts suppliers. They don't care to be competitive.

    Ha beat me to it! I'm guessing it's either an LACS (especially since it's exactly the specs he likes) or it's an actual production model but with the upgrades he does to all of his guitars. Those being the Ibby Hipshot bridge, Hipshot Tuners, and a set of Seymour Duncan Pegasus/Sentient.

    Really? That must be new (as in the past year) because I remember he used to love the SD Pegasus.

    Damn. This has me in a state of eureka. I've always wondered "If all these manufacturers have to do is read these forums to get in touch with their customer, to make the perfect combination of spec's... Then why does it never happen?"

    Maybe that question has been answered for all time.
