Im not sure if Im happy or sad that this is in the Iron Label range (I mean, now it's in a price range that I can actually afford :lol: ) but IMO it's definitely a beauty

Electric Guitars S - SIX6FDFM Iron Label | Ibanez guitars



they definitely have studied well the dj0nt market between this and the new RGA's/RGD's Iron Labels :lol:

Yeah saw it on FB earlier and my first thoughts was 'Mayones'.

Not really for me, but if Ibanez are starting to do more reversed headstocks, then more power to whoever is designing for them nowadays. Especially if they do some 7s :)

Yes because Ibanez never made S series guitars and nobody else ever did a Carribean burst finish before Mayones :facepalm:

This should make all those people who keep saying "if only it had ebony, fixed bridge, direct mount passives, reverse headstock, and didn't have that gigantic stupidass plastic switch housing that nobody can seem to figure out why Ibanez uses on the S series" happy.

I'll buy a blue one and put pink pickups in it and play songs about miami

e: still don't know why they have a different radius than prestige Ibanezes. especially when they use hardware with a baked in radius here(not that it can't be adjusted around)

Come on, you know the second you saw this, the first thing that came to mind was Mayones. It's nearly a clone of the Djentleman Regius. :lol:

Pretty obvious Ibanez is trying to get into the bootique crowd with the funky looking RGD and these Sabers.

And yes, I want one. :lol:

EDIT: ...., the one with the trem is blackburst only. :(

Pretty sure Mayones probably copied the Ibanez S first which lead to the Regius. If this is your thing then you probably get a guitar just about as good for a fraction of insane US mayo prices.

It's not the shape, it's the aesthetic. The colored-to-natural triburst, the matching reverse headstock, the blank fretboard with binding.

I mean, it's full circle now. Mayones copied the Saber/RG to make the Setius/Regius, and now Ibanez copies Mayones' aesthetics. :lol:

The S and Regius are completely different shapes and designs..

And personally, no Ibanez will ever touch a Mayones in my book. Especially not an Iron Label :lol:

FRAK ME THIS IS THE FIRST TIME I'M ON IN MONTHS AND I SEE THIS?

God damn I want one of these now. I got back into playing my 7 string and I gotta say those are gorgeous.

It raises up the mounting height of the switch and allows it to be closer to the edge of the body. ;)

EDIT: it also undoes the angle of the arch top at that point, making the switch parallel to the strings.

I don't like the coil tap possie either. Though granted that I get one of these (I am due for a new 7, particularly a hardtail), I'd probably swap the 2 switches around.

though the same, but good luck with that.

the pickup switch its a normal 3 way, standard size. The coil split is a mini toggle, so the holes on the body wont match.

Im guessing the body of the guitar is too thin on that part to accomodate the 3 way switch??? I hope thats the reason, and even if it is, still a stupid idea to put the coil split in there .. QICK EDIT: I just realize the two switches are at the same distance to the edge of the guitar, so thats not the reason :wallbash:

Throw out the toggle, put the 3-way in its place and slap in a DiMarzio EP1111 wired as a parallel/split/series switch*. :shrug:

* aka skervesen world domination mod.

From the wood choice this Ibanez is a clone of the new upcomming Mayones Regius Core, which will also come with a mahogany body and maple top and a maple neck with ebony fretboard.

This Ibby might be a nice modding platform ;)
