    The SynchroniZR doesn't have the ZPS system in it.

    It's called that because it uses the ball bearing design the ZR does, but if you look here, it doesn't have the second set of springs that touch the sustain block from behind - http://kkcdn-static.kaskus.co.id/images/2012/12/29/3538795_20121229024119.jpg

    Those springs are the ZPS system so there's no patent issue with the SynchroniZR.

    No ZPS bars on the SynchroniZR. Just a thumbscrew that acts as a tremsetter. :yesway:

    I'll preface this with saying that Marco is one of my fave players, and I agree with him being a better player than Petrucci (songwriting is a different story), but Marco sometimes overtly copies Petrucci to almost ridiculous levels. I don't even think there anything wrong with it at all, but to say he isn't/doesn't isn't entirely accurate.

    Example:

    He definitely has copied him for sure, I think its hard not to copy Petrucci in some regards due to his influence on that Genre and players, me included :). I think he has really shaken that tag in the last few years though, all his newer stuff sounds like pure Sfogli to me.


    Does anyone know when this guitar will be getting released? After Namm I would assume?


    Apparently Australis (OZ distributor) knew nothing about his sig even though he is on the OZ Ibanez page, weird.

    Official spec sheet for the MSM1. And some clarification regarding scale length, bridge type, etc.

    Looks like the EU will get the ZPS system.

    Also, don't see many Ibbys with that small of a radius.

    Yep that is an uncommon radius for an Ibanez. IIRC the Andy Timmons models are also 12" radius. Or at least his Premium models are. EDIT: the new Talmans are also 12".

    What about the Satch? I thought they were a 11 or 12" radius?

    ...., those are 10''. :lol:

    But yeah, besides their sig models and their vintage-themed models, they don't don't do anything 12'' or below very often. I just thought it was interesting since Marco is a more modern player.

    Just personal preferences I guess. Hell, Chris Broderick has a 12" radius on his Jackson signatures and he's most definitely a modern style player.

    Interesting radius choice but I can dig it. Anyone reach out to any US dealers to see if we can preorder this ? I hope I dislike the pickups so I can replace them with one of the original JP6 sets I have sitting on my desk lol.

    Linking for ease of access. Though I noticed it was an unlisted video. Anyway: sweet! Nothing we didn't already know, but some great shots of the guitar and Marco playing it.

    Marco is a great player, but I must agree to this.

    The fact his sig Ibanez is just a JPM without the double-locking tremolo just makes this worse. It would be no surprise if it came with some sort of multi-colored graphic finish. :rolleyes:

    Doesn't make really him a JP clone though. The volume knobs aren't in the same spot anyway, the MSM1 looks closer then where the JPM sits. Plus you get wenge neck, fatter and narrower profile, the only thing it kinda shares with a JPM is the control layout, that's it.


    I wish Ibanez made more RG's with the volume knob positioned like the MSM1 anyway, don't know why they put it so damn close to the bridge, I have to re-position mine to the the tone position on all my RG's.

    I actually really like the volume position on my RG - It's excellent for volume swells.
