RG920QM - Ibanez introduces a new Premium line of guitars that are being built in the Jawa Timur factory in Indonesia. Before you balk at their origins, these guitars have the goods. In a joint venture, Hoshino Gaki and Fujigen have purchased a portion of this factory, sent their finest craftsman to train the employees, and several have stayed behind to oversee operations to maintain the expected high degree of quality. Premium guitars are based on J Custom quality, without the J Custom price. These guitars feature select wood, Japanese trained craftsmanship, close tolerance, neck profile like Prestige Wizard [not Wizard 2!], and Dimarzio pickups. To keep costs down they're using figured wood veneers instead of 4mm tops, so you get the high end look without the huge price tag. The new Edge Zero 2 bridge is less refined in finish than the EZ, but has the right stuff under the hood, individual knife edges pressed in the base, EZ locking studs [that I replace with Lo Pro lockers on Silver and above], the ZR-V1.1 arm holder system, and a cleaner rout behind the trem as they have removed the intonation bolt from the EZ. This trem will perform like an EZ. High end Japanese features for low end Japanese money. I have 3 of each of the 5 colors on order. Due in February.
