    There are variations in neck shape, and different series have different hardware, but for the most part that has always held true.

    You'd be hard pressed to find a brand that doesn't do that with certain legacy shapes. There's no equity in switching up something like control location or slight contour variation on every iteration.

    I need that catalog to include decent S7ā€™s. Iā€™m even okay with a comeback for S7421.

    C 32.5"
    G 33"
    D 33.5"
    A 34"
    E 34.5"
    B 35"

    I am not too impressed.
    Very many bassists happily use 34" or 35" for G so there is no need to go shorter than 34" on the G.
    I can understand the popularity of going shorter than 34" on the C though, seeing how many complain about the tone of high Cs.
    They have missed the chance to extend the B out to 35.5" or 36", both of which still allow many brands of string to be used (anything with winding length 38" is enough for a 36" scale, such as D'Addario 'super long scale').

    35" certainly is not 'plenty' for low B, although it is functional. 35" scale basses still have very significant tonal problems caused by the stiffness and/or undertensioning of the B.
    35" was chosen due to string availability concerns, not because it was tonally right for B.
    I am bemused why manufacturers have not done the obvious and used 36" scales, they either seem to play safe with 35", or go straight to 37" which is far more difficult to find strings for than 36".

    So, if 0.5" steps must be used, my preference for this EHB 6 string would be adding an inch: 36"-33.5", which results in a 34" G. The fanned 5 would then be 36"-34".

    :cheers: To someone in the clothing business, this is gold. :fever: I'm having a hard time deciding how i feel about the looks on this fudge brownie of a guitar, but it would all become clear if i saw myself holding it.

    Looks like they finally found out about the existence of pore fillers. The burl model doesn't look that bad at all...

    I only now realised that ichika's bass is an Ibanez.
    I thought in the "hardest bass solo" etc. videos was a Strandberg.
    So Ibanez's plan here is clearly to get a piece of the Strandberg headless bass pie (if there is one).

    dav43, you're the MVP!!!
    thank you

    So what do we have:
    Cool maple fretboard Satriani guitar
    Insane gold cracked mirror Paul Stanley guitar (but it'll surely be expensive)
    The blue and turquoise RGAs are cool
    An S!! They had abandoned the S shapes for a long time. But it's an Axion Label one, with a binding, so it's a bit different
    The AZ224BCG is cool
    Contemporary looking new George Benson model
    The metallic SRMD bass is cool
    The BTB basses are awesome

    otherwise it looks similar to the previous year

    (Looks for ibanez evertune tweak...) This the first time they've used a non-proprietary bridge?
