NEW MODELS FOR 2018

IBANEZ RULES - 10TH/20TH ANNIVERSARY MODEL

RG1020IR6 - RG1020IR7

Yes, it was 20 years ago in 1998 that I purchased the first guitar with the sole intent of reselling it at a profit. It was a UVMC I found at a dealer in Tulsa OK listed on the old interweb as a "Universe Splash". I still have the printed label they put on the case that bears the same name. I paid the listing fee and posted it in the old Jemsite Classifieds, and sold it. At the same time I began collecting email addresses of anybody and everybody that had anything to do with selling or looking to buy anything higher end Ibanez. I compiled a SPAM LIST and emailed everybody a monthly compilation of what I had purchased or was brokering for sale. Man, did I piss off many who screamed at me to remove them, which of course I gladly did. I was doing this as a side gig to my regular day job but by 2000 it had grown to the point I knew it was going to turn into my primary job. From those humble beginnings, Ibanez Rules was born, and in all humility is still only known to possibly 1% of the Ibanez world!

Not only is this my 20TH Anniversary in the guitar business, but as luck would have it, on July 17, 2008 Ibanez graciously invited me to became their first Internet Only Authorized Dealer, to which I am eternally grateful. The fine people at Hoshino USA make it possible for this business to exist as it does today, and I am honored to call many of them friends. Friends I can irritate to no end with my constant ramblings, but they have shown a resilience to tolerate "almost" all of my idiosyncrasies! So this is also my 10TH Anniversary as an Authorized Ibanez Dealer. Thus, the 1020 model designation, though technically that will not be their official model numbers and the boxes will bear what Japan determines their model numbers are by the process they classify each model.

While this Anniversary project had crossed my mind several times over the year, it was an extremely CRAZY year. At times I would have 30 guitars in the tech line, not that I was selling that many, even though an extra 50 JEM's in any workload will have a serious effect, but this year included several injuries that forced some process changes, and several distractions. Not the least being my Eagles having a season that nobody could have predicted!! So the task of putting together an Anniversary model came very late, and just could not be finalized before NAMM. And while I absolutely love them, I may be the only one that does! ;o}

6 months later it's finally on order. The details on each page for the 6 or 7 string.
