    Speaking of rare Ibanez models that actually went into production, ever seen a Mac 10?

    I've never seen one in person, but definitely a cool and lesser known model. Under 500 made I believe.

    I would like to see the AZ series with a reserve headstock in addition to my request for a AZ 7 string. I got a prestige RGR652AHBF this past year (which I love and is my main current guitar) and would like to see that body a non floyd rose trem.

    It's supposed to be a blatant reference/homage to maccaferri guitars- the guitars that Django used.

    Mario Macaferri actually worked in collaboration with Ibanez on them. By most accounts it was the first modern reissue of the original design, of which there are dozens of builders and companies producing it today. According to Ibanez only 440 of the guitars were built. I've personally never seen one come up for sale but if I do I'll snag it. I've missed a few sold by Djangobooks over the years, they never last long.

    All i know is i'd be afraid of going ham on the high e and the fretboard breaking off into the sound hole...

    A few more options on the AZ would be great (Ibanez..hint hint....fixed bridge)!

    The only thing I don't like about the EZ is that I can't fit a Tremol-no to it.

    Only the LACS has been doing some customs with Evertune bridges, Dino had one in black color.

    It's not a classical tho. It's a steel string. Technically classified as an archtop because the bridge isn't glued on and it has a tailpiece. It's a gypsy jazz/manouche shred machine.

    Also, this may be my favorite LACS ever. 3448CF54-C277-4385-88A6-65F8E0C16945.jpeg

    You would think with how many RGAs come out of the LACS, Ibanez would get their head out of their asses and make more RGA prestige production models.

    That's nice. Looks like the finishes Aristides does on some of their stuff.
    I've lost all hope in Ibanez years ago. They always fall just short of making the perfect combinations in a single guitar in favor of really bizarre stuff. They can't honestly tell me that poop burl blue, bright lime green, bright orange and bright yellow are actually selling better than "normal" colors like red, black, blue, green, white, etc. Like every year I just hope there's one new model I actually want to buy, but it never happens.

    It has gotten better in the last few years with small independent shops doing small runs. There's some bangers out there at the moment.

    Then this is my favorite “not a lacs, it was an Axiom Label RGA that got a new paint job at LACS.”

    I don’t care what it is. It’s sick as hell.
