Or nice to see my old guitar too I had it years ago did I buy it from you
I doubt it is a 1 piece neck. Most likely it's a 3 piece maple neck... roasted...
If 6-string FR800 is in Europe about 1199€, then sevenstring is about 100 more. 1299€ from standard series model is ridiculous. Not that I would want to buy one, but still.
Does it come with a Digitech Whammy pedal?
From what I can see, all of the roasted maple necks (AZ, RG HP, RGA HP, FR) seem to be one piece necks excluding the scarf joint/headstock (I think the AZs are a true one piece, no scarf joint). I'd imagine its due to roasted maple being more stable.
I wish the FR807 came in red, I have way too many black guitars. Then again what's one more.
Some times the glue joints are hard to spot on photos. Until someone with hands on experience on these guitars tells me wrong, I'm fixed on the 3 piece neck...
Eh, folks have been paying even more for Iron Label and Axion Label, which are pretty much Standard series.
They're one piece with scarf joint, just like the Indo AZ models have had since release.
I think all the non laminated necks with a flat headstock are true one pieces (AZ models, Andi Timmons sig), whereas the ones with an angled headstock get a scarf joint to minimize wood loss.
Fair. If they're the same as the RGEW from the last few years it was a one piece + scarf joint. I hope they do a better job on these, the contrast of the two pieces was pretty stark.
Good to know, thanks for the info.
The one piece necks with scarf joints are pretty good. That's like the same as the rg-7620's have and they are really nice. Some of them can develop issues with not being able to get enough backbow with the truss vs tension of strings but I only ran into that once a long time ago on an rg7621 I had (same basic neck as rg7620). I think it was because the grain was wonky and not quarter sawn like most of them. I'd be fine with these necks I think. There's so many intereseting guitars this year I'm getting really indecisive.
One piece necks have no issues. Unless you go nuts like Dillenger did, i doubt you'll find issues. Look at every UV7 and 7x2x and every other FAMED 90s Ibby.
anyone got more leaked pictures of the catalog, for the models that were not listed yet on the website?
What is all this procrastinating, lolligagging, beating around the bush? It's 2020. Show me the goods! You wanna sell guitars or not Ibanez?! Sick of waiting, trying to make some decisions.
Did I see some new or reissue pedals for 2020 ?
Give us the nums nums. I want a headless 7
Ibanez wouldn't release headless guitars and basses for the first time same year. Mark my words, if I'm wrong, I'll buy one brand new guitar and bass. But from recent history, FF was bass only, then years later went to guitar.
Same thing here I bet. If not, oh well, I love headless.
I already preordered the bass. I hope you're wrong so I can get both and then have to answer to my Fiance why I spent all that money.
"They have no heads which makes them pretty"
What really sucks, is that the FR800 does come in a Candy Apple Red with a matching headstock and it looks awesome. I 100% agree this color should be available for the 807, too.
However, I am 100% sold on the 807. I didn't really like the Iron Label FR because of the EMGs, but I've been wanting an FR7. This comes with Aftermaths, has unique inlays, locking tuners, and a Pau Ferro fretboard, and I can deal with black, so I'm definitely getting one.
He's been spending a LOT of time with Tosin livestreaming on Twitch. I wouldn't be surprised if he ends up with Abasi guitars.
