    Oh, I didn't take that personally; it's just that woods we may find weird today may become a standard for tomorrow.

    Was a bit suspicious about meranti myself, but I'm actually surprised.

      I'm surprised more brands haven't gone to alder+maple, those are still quite affordable

        Nice, enjoy it then :-)

            Ah. That does look better. (Not that there's anything wrong with pink.)

              Cool, I remember looking at that one when the 2021 catalogue came out, the all creme pups caught my eye. That's one dark roast neck! It's cool that they've given the S a hardtail option, which is not too common.

              It's a regular Indo model, hence the hardware; brand name pups are the sole upgrade. The Premiums tend to have Gotoh hardware.

              Anyway, they trimmed the lineup in places this year; the op's guitar is the only S model being offered. There's a significant backlog in production across the board, and a lot of dealers are out of stock or having a trickle coming in.

                Yep.

                Leo Fender chose the woods he chose because they were cheap. He didn't give a damn about tone.

                  I have a 2015 Premium RG870RWZ, and it has no Gotoh hardware, only some recent models offer Gotoh tuners.

                  Here in Europe the S Standard line currently has hree models on offer: this SEW761FM, a S521 and a S520.

                    So confusing, there are some models now which might as well be MIJ given the specs and price but are Premium, like the mahogany RG6 with EMGs. It certainly costs more than some Japanese guitars.

                    The RG870 looks pretty nice too, with that rosewood top.

                    Derp, you're right, the 761 is just new for 2021.

                    I feel like Ibanez should bring back some of the crazy colours for the S like they had on the Gambale guitars.

                      Yep, the Premium line is all over the place, with one costing as much as some japanese models. Go figure.

                      Even weirder, there's a S561 coming, but it doesn't show up anywhere....

                        Gotoh hardware only in Japanese made.

                        Yeah Premiums prices have become so ridiculous you might as well get a Prestige. But it seems to be popular in Europe. Even the snobbish Swiss snatch 'em like hot cakes...lol.

                          Not really. The current S671ALB (Iron Label line) and RG1120PBZ (Premium line) are made in Indonesia, and both have Gotoh tuners, for instance.

                            I kinda dig the matte seafoam green of the 561.
