    There's more energy around shortscale basses than you'd expect, just not in the metal world. Tony Grey just did a sig Fodera that's 30.75" straight scale...



    That shortscale headless would probably fit in a guitar gig bag, which is reason enough I think!

    From what I’ve seen so far, only new short scale headless basses are being added to the existing headless bass selection; no guitars. But they might be holding that back from everyone at this point.

    Not sure if it's this year, but they're apparently working on a new 5150 head that sounds like the original Peavey 5150.

    As much as I hate Ibanez and think they specialize in making the same fucking guitar over and over again..those are kinda nice. I wouldn't want one...but they're nice.

    Do they normally hold out the super crazy stuff til the end, or the super expensive stuff, or? Like, what sorts of things might they be sitting on for later release?

    Why? There's already a 5150. Why the hell would anyone buy a "new" 5150 for more than likely 4 digits when you can just get one for much cheaper used?

    Because the hype for an authentic "block letter" tone has resulted in an ungrounded feeling of scarcity which belies the bevy of available authentic block letters that are actually out there. In other words, magic is still very much alive.

    6505s go for 3 digits all day. This is clearly a dead guy cash grab trap for idiots.

    I'm not arguing, I got my 6505 for about $500.
    That said, this trend vastly predates Eddie's death. But no doubt, Eddie's death will up sales.

    Well at least the good thing is with the new 5150, all the retards will claim it's just like the "block letter" 5150s...all the morons will either spend shitloads on the new one or shitloads on the block letter..and the 6505 prices will go down because no one wants them.

    Exactly. With all the retards trying to get 5150s, both the old and new..People with sense should be able to scoop up 6505s for cheap

    Not really digging the new Ibanez stuff. When will we see any Fender or Schecter stuff.

    Some cool new Ibby stuff. The shorter scale AHBs, the Axion and RGDs with the Fishmans are cool, the 7-string AZs pretty daring.

    I did see one of the catalogues had those old spiky RG-style basses reissued. I was waiting for that! Weird it's not shown on the main site's new stuff section though.
