    I’m wondering if they will make J Custom AZs at some point. Not that I would buy one, but interested to see what they would come up with.

    If they would do that teal one with plain black DiMarzios, offset dots, and twilight blue finish I would love it.

    Maybe it's just me, but something about those come off looking really cheap, and not as nice as other j customs.

    It's the photo editing, it takes all the life out of the pictures. Once the real photos start popping up they'll look better.

    I also think the J.Custom line as a whole has lost much of its "wow factor" since becoming so commonplace and seeing little change in the 8000 series the last decade.

    Its the inlays that have just been used far too long. I had an 8427 with the vine inlays, it feels like 10-15 years ago. They need to switch them up a bit or stop doing them as frequently.

    Yall crazy. The J.custom is a dream, and all of those look sexy.

    I do agree that more variety in them would be nice however.

    Don't get me wrong, they're really pretty.

    I just don't really get excited about the JCRG8xxx stuff anymore now that they make so damn many of them. Back when North America got five (5!) the novelty was part of the mystique.

    I'm also a crotchety old bastard about guitar trends and hate the limited Sugi models.

    I admit it's total "old man yells at cloud"-syndrome.

    I'd love to see a quilted J.Custom. Or a Prestige, like the RG320Q-WRS Wet Rose beauty (yes, it was a neck-through Prestige).

    Yeah, they're weird with quilt. The only ones I know of were limited runs for Kurosawa.

    I'd love to see the return of the RGT series. I'm surprised Ibanez didn't continue with them.
