It's been about a year yea, he started with them in his Blue 6 string if I recall.
The thing is, the 99% of folks who vehemently ask for a given feature set will never buy the instrument even when available.
Ibanez, and really all mainstream makes, look at what endorsed artists use and request via custom orders and what actually sells at retail versus what doesn't.
Beat me to it.
Can also put it as "The reason manufacturers keep putting burl tops that look like swimming pools with turds in them is because you fucks keep buying them"
The burl year(2019) is over, the sandblast year(2020) is coming.
did you just have this chart in case of emergency?
They're right on the Ibanez website.
This in the $1400-1800 price point would be awesome.
Does that answer the question though?
That's very true. I'm operating with like 50% sarcasm on that last one. I would be totally in that camp with everyone else to ask for certain features, and then find something to nitpick as soon as exactly what I asked for was offered to me. LoL. Even if it's hard to admit that.
I thought we’d escaped from these a few years ago when Mayones did their ‘Gothic’ themes ones. I saw PRS did some earlier this year and hoped that was a one off for a cheesy Halloween feature.
And now Ibanez?!?!?
Come back turdpool burl, all is forgiven!
Yeah, there have been attempts over the years for SSO group buys where they fall apart as there aren't even 10 people here that can agree on specs.
The cherry blossom RG8 was the latest one. So sad that didn’t happen
saw the pic of the new bass, took me a while before I clicked in it was an Ibanez.
burl is meh for me now, but looove that wenge neck with the two laminations <3 <3
shape seems interesting. Would love to see a front pic of it, rather than a side low angle photo that doesnt help to figure it out the shape.
also seems like a huuuuuuuge fret access :O !!!!!!!! DAAANG..... but, in order to do so, they moved the leg cutout sooo far back..... so all the point of making a headless bass is useless.
-take away the headstock to reduce neck dive while sitting down.... leg cutout is so far back that youa re going to endup with the same "neck dive" as a SR model (or maybe bit more)
-reduced body to access the tunners...... this only works on guitars as basses already have the bridge at edge of the body... so no gain here. If not they missed a huge opportunity to angle the body shape to go with the multiscale fan of the bridge.... if not this bass body would be "bigger" than what it would be a regular scale bass (as its shapped to accomodate the long low string scale only)
-chop headstock to reduce overal size and neck dive..... Ibanez already had the smallest headstock for basses in the market, so the gains are not really THAT much... it all depends on how big this "headstock piece" would be
in other words, this is a headles bass for the sake of making a bass with no headstock
and yup, I never been a fan of headless basses....(can you tell ) .....I think they serve no purpose
Im exited to see if this new shape gets a headstock version too.
having say that, I LOVE they keep pushing the envolope for basses and keep doing weird and unique stuff.... now if they only could nail a decent color/wood combo on a SR premium I could retire happy hahaha....
I wonder why they havent started an "Ibanez Guitar workshop" too
I hope they release a headless model. I would buy it. 6 7 or 8 doesn't matter to me
Apparently there is a non-fanned version coming also:

Awww.....I can see the chintzy logo from here.
I can see the poop in a pool burl from here.
Big fan of the Ibanez SR, totally don't like this shape for now. Have to see one in the flesh.
That shape looks like a Carl Thompson meets Status.
I don't hate it. looks '80s as hell.
