    I wish it was a 7 and a hardtail tho
    Same. A hardtail 7 string of this would be fucking amazing.

    Don't think it will be available in Europe that's one of the most appealing new RGs to me

    You can always get yourself a Floyd version and block it = double locking hardtail basically. I love the tuning stability of that!
    Or diveonly. Feels like a hardtail when playing, but you can still do some dives when you want.
    Thats my prefered Floyd setup, all my guitars are dive-only because I like the solid hardtail feel, but need some flashy dive stuff at times.

    Yeah, the lack of hardtail So-Cals is bad! They really should have it.
    Well, what if you hated Floyds and wanted a Tune-O-Matic? And where are the Charvel sunburst finishes? Or, from Ibanez, all the 22 fret RGs?

    Ibanez can't be everything to everyone. Not too many of their guitars are exciting to me, but I already have a pretty killer arsenal. If I desperately needed a new guitar, there are a bunch of Ibanez options that would work pretty well for me (or Charvel, for that matter, since I'm fine with either 22 or 24).

    Basically, you're not going to be happy witht heir lineup until you get a 24 fret RG with a maple fretboard and a white body, and even then you'll probably STILL find some reason to get bent out of shape about it. Let's just call a spade a spade here.

    Keep in mind a lot of the stuff on this Musicradar.com site is European; the US isn't getting the same stuff.

    It will most definitely have cosmo black hardware, and Rocka won't buy it, because real heavy metal hardware must be heated and sprayed with plastic!

    Pretty much the same target audience.

    Why can Charvel do this, and not Ibanez?

    Explain it, like now!



    And note that this isn't even all models in all colors; there's white So-Cals as well, not pictured here.
    Let me know when you have the most rudimentary understanding of how a dwindling music instrument market works.
