    Hilljack read through the quote from Max about very low production numbers.

    Yes, I read those. I already knew about the 28 (I've heard 25) but didn't know about the deal with Korn. Anyway, Rich is whom I ordered from and he hasn't gotten anything from Ibanez yet. They are obviously getting shipped, just seems a bit slow considering the site shows the production has come and gone a few months ago now.

    It’s a global pandemic; everything has slowed down - he probably told you it would take forever before you bought it.

    He did, I'm just getting antsy with it. I know they are done, just not a priority for Ibanez to get them out apparently.

    Not alot of info has been passed to dealers. The one I purchased has also still not arrived at my dealer (Rich @Ibanez Rules) and he is within driving distance of the PA factory and picks up id say at least weekly. He has gotten the first one already but that was for the first persons sale before ne. Seems spotty in where and when they are being sent out. I know Ibanez was shut down/limited staff for a while due to covid. So production has sufferred. I cannot confirm nor deny that they were all built in Sept/Oct. hope to see it soon myself.

    Not to “correct” Max Of Metal, but its the 20th anniversary, not the 30th. So the numbers produced have nothing to do with the anniversary unfortunately. But that was a cool idea.

    The APEX 200 guitars that I had played a few years ago were among the best 7s I have played, ever. I was sorely disappointed when those were discontinued. Unfortunately, I really don't like PAF-7 pickups or gold hardware, so the anniversary model is not on my list.

    Apex200 was easily my fav of literally dozens of Ibanez 7s that I've had. But I particularly liked the block heel which lots of folks don't.

    I do like the All Access heel on my RGDs and RG3727, but there was something about the combination of everything on the APEX200. I particularly liked the single coil neck position pup. I wish more guitars had a hum-single setup.

    You're 100% correct, I think I was conflating it with the UV30th that wound up not happening...at least yet. I should see about whatever happened with that.

    Thanks for the info. I knew Rich already had two reserved when I asked him about a third. So looks like your #2 and I'm #3. Probably going to be waiting a good while. When you do get it or know it is on the way can you post? I'd like to get an idea of the wait times between shipping. Hopefully he gets them at the same time.

    I just asked Rich on the stock. Says he has three but has bit of backlog. No issues there since we all know he is ass busy. Anyway. The K7's are in and we should be getting them soon, I had an upgraded package so if that delays my delivery so be it. Can't wait for this one!
