Now, I’m not a fan of flame maple finishes (I just feel it’s been kinda overdone ever since PRS cornered that market in the late 90s/early 00s) but even I, in my cynicism, can’t help but be freaked out in the best possible way by this axe. I love how unnecessarily over the top it is. All the bling is just so… superfluous.
Of course, you’re not likely to see an Ibanez this gaudily spectacular outside Japan, so it’s all the more reason to hurry up and finish my CD so I can get famous in Japan and go on a guitar buying spree… Maybe not this one, because I’d rather look at it and think “I can’t believe they actually made
that” than actually own it, but seriously, have you seen
some of the J.Custom stuff out there? I’d lose my mind if I was turned loose in Japan with a wad of money and a translater with a gift for haggling.
BUT WAIT! It gets better/worse (depending on your point of view and tolerance for outrageousness):
