Its got a Floyd too! But I need to know if for $699.95 If it comes with a case. The guy I talked to didn't know If it did, so I need to know if Im going to have to put down another $100 or so for a Hard case. I have Soft Cases and Guitar stands, but For long transportation Id need something better.

Does an XPT700 Xiphos come with a case? Ordered from zZounds.

Nice! Pics when it arrives...

And the extra cash for the case is definitely worth it.
You can call me Aaron.

Black Finish, and You can buy them with a Floyd, So I do know what Im saying.

Why does everyone seem to be selling their Xiphos? Is it a guitar you get bored of soon? Or what? Ive seen like 3 people selling theirs on UG...

Probably because theirs had Edge III and they got sick of the BR00T4lZ shape
#11
oh damn didnt know you could order them with FRs.

i still am not comfortable with a floating trem. i dont use it enough to make it worth having. plus i dont need another guitar and id really like a schecter c-1 classic instead of this.

congrats and sorry you have to wait! nothing is worse than buying something and not getting it right away!

Ibanez doesn't sell guitars with Floyd Rose trem's. They have their own called the Edge and ZR series tremolos.

the edge IS basically an FR, though. the design is more or less identical - the locking bridge & nut as well as the knife edges make it the same.

Anyhow, pointless thread is pointless.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.

congrats,

the case does need to be ordered separately order - xp100c

it tells you on the ibanez website whether a case is included

normally it`s just the prestige models that include a case.

the guitar doesn`t have a floyd it`s a edge 3 trem.

No you can't and no you don't. Your guitar's gonna show up with an Edge III, not a Floyd. They're members of the same gene pool, but not the same product.

Congrats on getting a Xiphos though. They're good guitars from what I remember. I really liked the pickups.

Isn't the Edge III just a licenced floyd rose? Which would mean it's suitable to refer to the Edge III as a 'floyd rose' bridge.

Ibanez calls it an Edge III. It's suitable to call it by the name given by those who produce it.

How much does that change though? The ts never said his Ibanez was coming with like an Original Floyd Rose or anything they just stated it was coming with a floyd rose, which the Edge III is unless you want to debate that.

if was a licensed floyd rose it would be stamped on the trem, all ibanez`s are stamped with the ibanez logo......some of the older trems still carry the licensed stamp though.

Oh now that's just nitpicking, the Edge III is still a floyd rose style of bridge isn't it?

I agree it probably does not come with a case. I think it's odd but it doesn't surprise me that the guy or a rep for zZounds that is selling it doesn't know that. I have had the same problems with MF I think they just hire people to answer the questions and all they do is look it up on their computers.

I love odd shaped guitars and my biggest problem is finding cases cheap. I have been pretty lucky so far with Ebay and Craigs list. I got two Jackson cases, a few BC Rich cases and several Coffin cases for cheap $$ all under $50.00 the two Jacksons for less than $30.00 ea. The Xiphos is a tuff one I don't think there is a generic case out there that will hold it your probably going to have dig up the Ibanez case for it.
