    I'll bet they're just still updating the website or something. As of now there is no 7 string Prestige RG with a LoPro, They took away all the other RGD's except the new one. I'm hoping in the following days they get it all updated.

    This I dig too, because it's black and stealthy as guitar can get :agreed:

    This HSS AZ Premium is perfect. Love it's blue burl cousin too - some design cues from the new ESP Snappers put out this year?

    And it's waaaaaaaayyyyy better than the gross brown stain color they used for the 2019 version.

    The "new stuff" page is not the catalog.

    The RG752 is still in the lineup. Though the rest of the RGD Prestige 7s have been discontinued.

    Would the richlite top resist getting glossy and covered in fingerprints like a normal matte black finish?

    Considering it's probably underneath a regular finish, I'm going to say it'll be no different.

    New finish coming for the 752, anyone know? Or a new RGR 7 besides the green? I’m underwhelmed on MIJ 7s here....disappointing.

    Starting to question if I'm even an Ibanez fanboy anymore as these are all :facepalm:

    Much of it reminds me of cheap LTD/Jackson indo guitars. Mostly due to the finishes. Seems I'm the minority though so hopefully Ibanez has a good year!

    I think I'm in the same boat. I just realized that for the last 20 years I've been a fan of their potential more than actual guitars.I do like the new Apex 30 though.

    This is probably my favourite of the bunch so far. I'm really tempted to get one and tune it to F# or drop B with an additional low F#. Veil of Maya did something similar if I'm not mistaken.

    This is, quite literally, the only thing I wanted from Ibanez. Give me a stripped down hardtail-equipped extended scale seven string with a solid finish and you will have my money.

    I think some regions are getting the current 7-string RG5k in a different color.

    The thing with 7s is the store runs are just so successful. We won't really see "better" than that.

    It will probably require some polishing, but this year's model is excellent, and this one looks great too.

    Seriously.. if I did that burst myself as an amateur I'd be fucking ashamed. Looks like a total botch job, and the color choices don't help it either. And it's Axion..

    I feel the same way. So far I'm underwhelmed. Somebody had suggested (way back in this thread) that Ibanez should have a "Genesis" line for the S-series. I would be up for that.

    I know this isn't everything that is new, but so far I'm not reaching for my wallet. Waiting for what Vai has in store for NAMM.

    So is this new Apex 30 gonna be the "cheaper" model like the previous Apex 20 was?
