Last year Ibanez teased a new 9 string guitar prototype you can see it here delightfully modelled by Peter from I Heart Guitar well it looks as though it is going to be officially released at Winter NAMM 2014 tomorrow as I have managed to get my hands on this very official looking leak. As you can see the guitar is in a black finish rather than the highly figured top on the prototype which I think is more in alignment with the demographic they are aiming for and I’m sure if these guitars are a success they will roll out more finishes in the future.
The new 9 string will come in two models as you can see the RG9 and RG90BKPISH Prestige (Black invisible shadow finish). There’s no point in me regurgitating what you can read on the flyer above but I will try and get some NAMM shots to add to the post soon.
Anyone keen to try their hands at a 9 string?
