So the other day, I was in a Sam Ash. There were two guitars that Im almost positive were not normal production models. They were an xpt700, but in a bright, almost candy apple red, with what appeared to be d-activator x's and a gold tremthat may have been either an edge 3 or an edge pro. The other guitar was an xpt707, but in metallic black instead of the standard green chamillion. Is Ibanez holding out on us, or are these customs that were sold to the store?

sometimes companies will do special runs for different stores or have a line of prototypes or whatever. drumcityguitarland gets a whole bunch of schecter prototypes, they're usually pretty cool.

Large retailers can special order items they can sell exclusively. I have an Epiphone LP Standard custom shop that was only sold thru Sam Ash. It came with black MOP truss rod cover and pick guard, trans black flame maple top and original Bill Lawrence pick ups. I wouldn't doubt they made some deal with Ibanez for some specific colors and hardware that is not something you'll find any where else.

Thanks, Ive been trying to decide between a 6 xiphos with a trem, and the 7 string hardtail version. The only one that seemed to work is the custom guitar that the guitarist from Necrophagist is having made (it also has 27 frets along with the 7 string trem). But I dount that Ibanez is going to release it as a sig any time soon.
