      Got this from another forum

       

      Okay I got back from my Ibanez dealer. Here is what I saw. I am not associated with any dealer. And I don't care if anyone believes me or not.

      1. 7 string RGD with Tightend bridge. 26.5 scale (duh). BLANK EBONY fretboard (no inlays). Bareknuckel Aftermath 7's. In the invisable shadow finish. Street $2099

      2. 6 string FR, tightend brigde. 25.5 scale (I think), blank ebony fretboard (no inlays), Bareknuckel aftermath 6's, It was black, might have been invisible shadow also, don't remember the price but it was around $2000 street.

      3. Ibanez prestige RG 6 string with pickguard, HSH pickups, Dimarzio pickups (Tone Zone, true velvet, and air norton, if I remember right), with an Edge tremolo, 3 colors, oragne metallic, galaxy black and the new cobalt blue (that has already been shown). $1199

      4. all the prestige RG fixed bridge guitars that have already been shown. No orange 7 though, Just Black and that wine color (for fixed).

      5. My favorite, 7 string prestige with lo-pro edge 7, Dimarzio PAF's in blue cobalt and galaxy black, $1299.

      6. Korn, there are 3 new Korn guitars, a standard line Munky and also Head, Munky is the one that has been shown, Head is an RGD looking guitar with a black body with white (?) splatter (chrome hardware, I thought it looked REALLY cheap, even though I really like Head). No scale length listed. Then there is a "Prestige" Korn, it was blacked out, with no specs, to be announced. Probably the one with the red pickups, but I don't know for sure.

      7. two new 9 string guitars, I'm sorry, I didn't look at the stats. Sorry guys. They are both RG's, probably similar to the standard RG8, and then an Iron label 9 PROBABLY. Both were black only.

      8. TONS of new 8 RG's. I did not look at the specs of them all, but they did have 3 new prestige RG 8's that were somewhere around $1200, didn't look at the stats, again sorry guys. They did not have the fixed bridge edge III RG8 bridge though, it was a gibaltar design. Basically like the prestige fixed bridge 7 strings. White, black and a natural finish model.

      9. 25th anniversary PGM, Basically a flame top fireman with humbuckers, it has been shown on these forums also, $1200 (probably indo).

      10. A lot of new S's, the prestige stuff was REALLY expensive though, like fixed bridge for $1700 and V7 and V8 pickups, I am like, huh? They must have REAL maple tops. The S tremolo guitars I seen had the edge (or lo pro edge 7), no new prestige ZR tremolo guitars this year.

      11. a 30" scale "crossover" looked like an SR bass with a tightend bridge. Really strange, will need to read more about that later.

      And a lot more other stuff, A TON of new stuff, I would say Ibanez's biggest year in a VERY long time. And I do mean A LOT more.
