I owned this guy several years ago:

Ibanez Komrad 20 (Head Signature) in white spatter. Really cool looking guitar but one of the worst instruments I've ever owned lol. The fret ends and bridge were SHARP (theres a video somewhere of Head splitting his hand open live on this very model as I, also, did one day) and it produced this unbearable haywire distortion sound if you touched the selector switch in the wrong spot (likely a wiring issue somewhere). All of these issues and the realization that I just could never fully bond with the feeling of an extended range guitar led me to sell it at a loss, eventually.

Sucks about the issues, seems like Head was really disappointed with it as well. Based on this video right before he left Ibanez, his favorite part about the Komrad was the paint job and Ibanez adding a tone knob really irked him, lol.

That guitar always seemed super, super cheap looking. His Jesus-painted RGD looked much better. But his ESP sig is a major improvement over both.

Also when he was talking about the Konrad, it was weird how he called it a "semi-baritone" or "half baritone" scale length or whatever he said. Yet the guitar releases and it's a 25.5'' scale length.

I don't know how I missed the Komrad guitar, I guess I'm not a true fan! Despite them sounding kind of crappy I want one lol

Some of Head's LACS that were sold (or given away) after he left the band. Most of Head's LACS were spec'd on a Les Paul he had, hence the extra thick RG body and Greenburst/Silverburst finishes.

That Greenburst has one of the most comfortable necks ever! It was a real pleasure to play it.

Glad to hear someone else shares my view on the Komrad. There's even nicer/more expensive looking GIO models these days than that crap.
