So I was sitting in the office this morning, minding my own business when BOOM…this little beauty landed on my desk. It’s from Ibanez, it isn’t an entry level model, and it isn’t gloss black….wait, what?! This is the first time in a long while that a left handed offering from the Japanese giant has got me interested.
The model in question is the new, limited edition Ibanez RG721RWL-CNF from the Premium Series. I don’t know about you, but I think it’s stunning…
Ibanez RG721RWL-CNF Left Handed Guitar
Built with the hard working pro in mind, the RG Premium is recognized as the ultimate workhorse guitar for the gigging player.
Neck Wizard 5pc Maple/Walnut neck
Body Rosewood top/American Basswood body
Fretboard Bound rosewood fretboard w/Off-set Pearl dot inlay
Fret Jumbo frets w/Premium fret edge treatment
Bridge Tight-End R bridge
Neck Pickup CAP-VM (H) neck pu (Passive/Alnico)
Bridge Pickup CAP-VM (H) bridge pu (Passive/Alnico)
Hardware Color Cosmo black
I have a sneaking suspicion that this may be limited to Europe at the moment as it is only currently available in a very small number of Euro stores. Chatter suggests that it is very limited, so snap it up quickly or risk missing out.
