  • It's nice having a guitar again! NGD!

    Picked up an Ibanez RG6003FM. First time I've bought a 24 fretter as well.

      Cool guitar! I gotta say, Ibanez really has the weirdest model names. How are you supposed to remember that?

          Ibanez model numbers make for great passwords don't they?

            I'm not too particular about necks. No complaints about the profile. I will say it's very fast neck and it just felt wrong playing simple chords on it. Also, the entire guitar has a satin finish on it which I just love. I can't stand a poly finish on a neck these days.

                Type it over and over. Repetition!

                    You are probably right. I have a buttload of Ibanez catalogs and the number/letter combos they come up seems to be endless. Gone are the days when you just bought an Artist, a Roadster, or an Iceman. When the RG's hit Ibanez, it all changed.

                      It USED to just follow the Japanese tradition of naming models by ballpark MSRP figures (in 100's of yen ~= $USD). Second digit coded pickup options or other features.

                      Then things changed and they added +1000 to Prestige models (which used to mean MIJ, but not necessarily anymore)

                      Then they also made alternative/upgraded versions of Prestige 1000's (like 1550's etc) and just changed the first number (to 25xx, 35xx etc)


                      Basically, the HUNDREDS digit is (usually) the "model"... but not in this case I guess

                          hahaha, indeed.
                          I guess, inside the Ibanez company, those numbers mean something. Usually the name of a product is all wrapped up in the marketing, but you can't market a name like that.

                            The problem with guitar names is there need to be way more models than available names.
