    I honestly wish more companies took that approach. I dig the Fender-style no-cover look. Either that or the spokewheel adjuster.

    Also it's weird seeing EMGs on a brand new instrument, given all the new companies have been fellating Fishman like crazy.`

    I've got the 6 string model of this, the RGR4620E and it's spectacular. If they release another model similar to it this year I'd grab it in a heartbeat.

    Sorry to derail but y'know what I'd like to see? Reissues of the old Roadstar or Blazer basses with the P/P&J configs. Bit of vintage fun. No gov't subsidies for active basses and all that.

    It would be cool to see them refreshed to AZ spec/trim.

    A reissue of the old Roadstar would be glorious.

    But the later versions with the OG Edge, not the Rockr. :lol:

    If there's an old school series to bring back, it's definitely the Proline.

    Also, don't hate on the old trems. Those Hard Rockr and Pro Rockr were pretty badass for the time. It would be neat to see today.

    Won't somebody please think of the Maxxas!

    Maybe the new JEM model is a Maxxas, that'd be so cool.

    That preset system on the PL's looks fiddly as hell.

    You didn't have to use it, the regular controls bypass it.

    I never found it to really be that helpful as most of the different configurations were just the slightest bit different to the regular positions on the 5-way switch.

    Most of these I run into have the system either disabled or removed.

    He was a big Ibanez player in the early 80's. Especially the Rocket Roll, Destroyer, and an RS.

    Adrian Smith, too.

    Just do it, Ibanez. Just know, I, like most everyone else here, still won't buy them. :rofl:

    There was some speculation on FB that the new Jem would be Vanta black. Which is stupid, because what people keep failing to understand is that Vanta black gets its blackness from the outside texture of it. As soon as you start handling it you lose those properties.

    What's up with that 7 string Iceman? New for 2020, or a custom shop?

    It's LACS, highly doubt we will be seeing one in the future.

    Dude that is so 2018. Literally nobody uses the Drake pedophile format anymore. Geordie LaForge has replaced it.
