Any prices? Could it be possible to get one in the UK?

I'm not keen on the pickups but those can easily be changed. The rest of the specifications make it seem quite tasty! Love the finish.

painted pickups... well.. ok.. got the bobbins, get them rewound\. no way in hell i'm leaving those shit ass pickups in there

and that better be an original edge... and i'd like those lightning inlays too on an ebony board please... and do make a chunkier neck too.. i hate those wizard necks..


about the RG being the best guitar for metal.. you are joking right??

the paint looks nice though.. i'd like a matching headstock though

cos for that price i can get an USA jackson

Mr. Igor
I get the feeling you may not like this guitar. :wink:
It is just one of those hunches, you know.
I do however get the feeling you may just like this guitar if it were completely different. Brand and all. :lol:

For the record I am working on a Jackson right now and it is a fine guitar.
Headstocks are a bit demonstrative for my taste. but plays great. I Eb'ed it. In the finest tradition of Mr. Rhodes

which guitar is that logic?

the ibanez?

well, i'm 'ok' with it.. once i replace the pickups, the neck, the bridge (unless it's an original edge) it would be a pretty cool guitar. i can look past the ibanez headstock, they're on the OK threshold with me. they're not bad, but they're no jackson or fender hehe. most of all, they aint rippin anyone off .. and after those modifications.. yea. you can pretty much say it's a totaly diferent guitar since just the body stays LOL


and it's RHOADS!! not rhodes i swear, if i had a $ for every time someone misspels randys name i'd be freakin rich

Well you know what they say, To each thier own.
Me?? I want one of everything..
This Jackson may turn into my Eb guitar.
Sorry about the misspelling of the venerable Mr. Rhoads name.
I do the same thing with my kids.

oh TOOOOO BEAUTIFUL!!!

I am a HUGE RG fan and I really want to buy this limited one.

But why they don't put DiMarzio/IBZ? With the particular finish and stuff you can't even change the pickups. :cry:

you can

you have to send them to the peeps that you want to buy the pickup from.. be it duncan, dimarzio, bareknuckle, fralin etc. they will take the bobbins and rewire them to the desired pickup. the price is pretty much the same as buying a new one anyway

It's an Edge Pro.... they don't make original Edge trems anymore... It's listed on the top of the page and you can probably find the same info on the Ibanez site.
