For an upcoming anniversary of the Jcraft Ibanez (hand made in Japan) they are putting out this guy. I want one smile.gif Probably costs more than a small car though.

Even though my head tells me I do not need another guitar, and I have more than enough for what I do and want to do in the future. My heart still really really really wants an RG, and this picture doesn't help quell that GAS

It really is a killer looking axe smile.gif That finish, that neck, the whole package. I can't help but want one smile.gif It's sorta driving me up a wall as I sorta promised myself long ago that I wouldn't buy guitars that my students couldn't afford, which is my most of my guitars run around $300.. I'll probably wait till I see one on the used market which could be a while as they are being released in Japan only it seems. I hope that's wrong though smile.gif

Speaking of cheap guitars, I recently got a very spiff RGT42MDX neck through body white on white that I restored a bit and got back to fighting shape and I recently sold it as I wanted it to go back out in the world and make some other ibby nut happy smile.gif I'll use the proceeds to find another ibby "Rescue". it's become my favorite hobby smile.gif

She really is a sweet axe and she is not young. 2009, but restored to play as well as she did when built. I'll miss her smile.gif She is going to a good home in Kansas.

Though I must admit they are similar!

Not only the looks but such guitars are definitly built to last forever. Almost after 20 years I got a cheapo jackson for practice 6 months ago, imagine how much I played my guitar and feel it can still go for another 20 years with minimum maintenence smile.gif

So yeah once one gets one of these (and if the spec.s fit right for the player) he/she won't need another guitar for a very long time smile.gif

Well said smile.gif A good guitar can last 20 years or more. My RG560 was built around 1989, so it's bording on "Vintage" at this point smile.gif Still plays well. My RG7620 is almost as old, and still plays like a dream. You just gotta pick a guitar that was put together by humans as much as possible IMHO and finished by humans as much as possible. The guitars I've had that were more machine builds, were simply unpredictable. Sometimes they would stay in tune, sometimes not, sometimes you could hit pinch harmonics, sometimes not, but the Made in Japan ibbys, even the old ones, are still killer guitars 20 plus years later.

I'm amazed that so many Ibanez RGs from the 80's AREN'T suffering with warped necks considering how thin they are. It really is a testament to Ibanez

Very true smile.gif To be fair, I've seen quite a few that folks put 10 gauge strings on, and dive bombed a bunch, then bam, the neck would twist a bit. They fixed that these days by using titanium support rods smile.gif
