    No. They've used TonePros, Gotoh (not Ibanez/Gotoh), and Wilkinson in the past. Typically on artist models when they request a different bridge. I'm talking about production.

    Cool seeing Munky go RGA

    Sea Floor burlf Premium RG I'm sad to say looks pretty good, would buy
    Bowling Ball Prestige RG looks killer

    Only 2 new Sabers my heart is berken :(

    They put RGD bevels on the FR that's kind of sick too

    This isn’t it. There will be more announced.

    These two are absolutely amazing..... I just would like to know where that Apex is made? Is it Indo or Japanese?

    Also, they did it! They have a modern RGD and with an evertune of all things!

    Per naming convention, it is Indo.

    :( I had a feeling that was the case.

    Well besides that, I gotta hand it to Ibanez, this is looking miles better than previous years. Also you're saying there's even more?

    I'm so happy they didn't ruin the RG5320 with regular dot inlays

    I hope so...
    Now I'm only interested in the RG1127PBFX (BTW, where is the one with the gold hardware in the video of Remy Hansen?) and, partially, in the APEX 30... sadly it has no EVO gold or SS frets...

    They always save a few models for the show. This is definitely the bulk of it though.

    Don't expect anything earth shattering.

    The RG5170G is like the Ken Susi ESP model and an RG had a baby and I'm in love with it. I know I'm for sure getting something from this catalog in 2020.

    I don't believe they're discontinuing all the current MIJ 7s with trems. This is just the new stuff, not the entire lineup.

    Anyone else think its kind of nuts that they have center dots, offset dots and bass-to-treble dots, sometimes even in the same line

    Not really. It's just inlay patterns they've used before. Since there are different headstocks (reversed vs. non, some color matched) they can't share part numbers like they used to, so if they're making a whole new neck might as well use a different inlay.

    Schecter has like five variations on weird crosses, ESP has like five different block patterns. :lol:

    I'm sure Ibanez is holding that for NAMM.

    I'm getting that 5320. I'm not even a trem guy but that thing is way too cool to pass up.
