NAMM 2009: Ibanez RG1527M maple-boarded 7-string

Here’s another awesome new Ibanez design for 2009 – the previously-hinted maple-fretboard 7-string RG Prestige.

It’s been a long, long time since Ibanez released a 7-string with a maple fretboard. The only one I can think of is the UV777GR, a green Universe model made in small quantities in the early 90s.

Specs include:

Neck Material: 5pc Maple/ Wenge
Neck Type: Wizard-7 Prestige
Body: Basswood body
Frets: Jumbo frets
Fingerboard: Maple
Inlay: Black dot inlay
Bridge: Edge Pro 7 bridge
NeckPU: V77
BridgePU: V87
HW Color: CK
Finishes: GW

I’d love to get one of these and swap out the pickups for a Blaze set, but otherwise it’s perfect. Want!
