I like them a lot, especially the QX527PB.

Interesting to see slanted frets. Not fanned, but slanted. I wonder what they feel like.

(Also, I'm away on holiday, but Ibanez news....had to comment!)

This is blowing up all over the interwebs and youtube. The only thing I don't like so far is the neck profile is 19mm at the nut so it's not the hyper thin profile but it's still slim relative to many builders. It's only 19mm at the base which is new. Usually thicker at the base. I'm very curious to play one of these.

Videos are already going up about these long before anyone can get hold of one smile.gif

I understand headless are more economical but I can't get on the train - I just like the headstock. It's part of the guitar's personality. Maybe I'd understand more if I played one

I hate to sound like a traditionalist but I have to agree smile.gif I like headstocks and the Ibby headstock itself. I'm not against headless axes, I want to try these, but it may be a while before I actually buy one.

I've never played one but as a guess, the extra free space may give a lighter feel psychologically.

I had a cheap chinese headless, and while the quality was not great, the weight and feel (not of the neck etc, but of the guitar as an instrument) was great. I REALLY liked that part of it.

A very good entry level headless guitar is from Harley Benton.

From what I have read, it plays great for the money you will pay (430$).

The look I don't mind so much but my hand 'falls off' the guitar when I'm playing in the first position.

Thats a great price on the benton! I bet they are even made in the same factory as so many brands are these days. I would like to find a used benton to try out as it would be only $300 or so which would be a great test guitar.

I wish the new ibby headless had thinner necks but that's just me smile.gif

Agreed, headless guitar looks kinda amputated to me.

But I never played one, I can imagine the lighter feel can be amazing.
