Where can I purchase a guitar that looks like the one in the picture? I've found many similar ones but with small annoying stuff on them like black headstocks, other marks than dots on the fretboard, 7 strings, monkey grip etc. I want something that looks pure like this one, no fancy bs, just elegance. It doesn't necessarily have to be an Ibanez. I've found a couple of black ones here and there of varying quality but no whites thus far that have been available for purchase.

Does this qualify? Jackson SL2M Pro



If so, Sweetwater has one available.

Or this Washburn PX-SOLAR160WHM



If not, there's always a custom Kiesel or custom Agile.

According to the image link, it's and Ibanez RG2EX1, but I'm seeing most of the ones available in black. It's a discontinued model, and the replacement RG421 seems to have a black head stock.

ESP has an M-II NTB, but it seems to come with a Floyd.

Jackson has the HT6 Misha Mansoor, Soloist SL2 with a Floyd...might want to see into used Jacksons. Some lower end JS-11/12/22's have been offered in white as well, but may not come with matching headstocks.

Might consider doing a custom job with Agile from Rondomusic.com. You can have the headstock match the body.

dthmtl3 I like the look of that Washburn, except that hideous mark on the neck. It's looks very ergonomic for soloing up high on the neck and that headstock looks really cool. I will take it into consideration.

Carvin/Kiesel can probably knock out someting like that for $900-1100, depending on options selected.

If I purchase the Washburn that dthmtl3 posted, is it possible to just purchase a new freboard to get rid of that mark?

If you wanna' spend the money on a luthier you could have a new fret board added. Or, have the inlay removed and the hole filled.

That would be unnecessarily complex. The fretboard is ebony so you can just paint the inlay with some very dark brown or black color.

Jackson has some awesome newer model options very similar to the original poster's specs, but, surprisingly to me, white isn't offered as often anymore.
White and black were a gimme' on a lot of past models.

Surely how it plays is far more important than worrying about colour & fretboard marks?

The rg350 is similar with the painted headstock, and are everywhere.

Is this what you look for? Jackson Pro Series "Misha Mansoor Juggernaut" Signature HT6. White body and headstock, two humbuckers, six strings, dot inlays. Hella pricey, though. If you live in Europe, it's available for around 700€ instead of 1,100$ here.



White superstrats without tremolo and creatively shaped inlays are hard to come by, apparently. You have a wider selection to choose from if you don't rule out those with a tremolo (don't know whether that's unnecessary bs for you or not).

P.S: Whoops. Just saw this one's been mentioned already.

Step 1. Buy guitar with black headstock.
Step 2. Buy can of white paint.
Step 3. Remove tuners.
Step 4. tape off overspray area.
Step 5. Apply paint to headstock.
Step 6. Allow time to fully dry.
Step 7. Reassemble and enjoy your all white guitar.

Fair enough - seems like the wrong priorities to me, but if it's what you want then so be it.

This may be harsh, but...

Focus on your playing, not what your guitar looks like while playing. I can appreciate wanting a nice looking guitar, but there's a line between obsession for appearance over practicality and performance.

I own several guitars which I bought purely because they're amazing to play, as opposed to me wanting a guitar that looked like that. In fact, half my guitars follow that.

I have 14 guitars and only five have color matching headstocks and one of those doesn't really count as it is a Jackson DXMG and the body happens to be black so thus it matches the headstock.

Besides that one mine with color matched headstocks are:

Candy Red Charvel Fusion Custom
Transparent Satin Blue quilted maple Washburn Parallaxe
Gunmetal Grey B.C. Rich KKBeastVNT
White Dean Split Tail

Color matching headstocks are not as quite common as black or natural finish, go for a specific color like white and that narrows the field even more.

Not really. Removing and replacing a fretboard is far more expensive than you want to pay.
#21
You should really just accept that you're not going to get exactly what you want aesthetically with a finite budget.

Playability is far more important than the way something looks. Focus on that rather than insisting that your guitar comes with dot inlays and going to irrational lengths to make sure it does.

Carvin/Kiesel can build you the guitar you want. White body, white headstock, ebony fretboard and either dots or NO inlays at all.
Agile can build you the guitar you want as well, though it will take longer.
#23
the white misha sig looks really good but its got dot inlays. but you're going to have to compromise at some point unless you get a custom spec made.
