Those are very cool indeed, I like the tele's. What pickups are on the bottom navy-ish unit?

These guitars were reviewed in the March 2005 edition of Guitar World. They all have Duncan Designed humbuckers and single-coils. Mahogany bodies, 13 inch radius, and 25.5 scale.

Funny foreword on the Midway Model:

<BLOCKQUOTE class="ip-ubbcode-quote"><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-title">quote:</div><div class="ip-ubbcode-quote-content">The fight for the control of Midway island in June 1942 tipped the balance of naval power in America's favor and precluded an almost certain attack on the U.S. Coast. Made famous by Col. Gregory Boyington's Black Sheep Marine Squadron, the carrier-based Vought F4U Corsair was the plane that led the U.S. to victory in the Pacific. </div></BLOCKQUOTE>

Huh? There were Corsairs in Midway? They mentioned Pappy but it has a 'NAVY' inlay for the 12th fret marker.

Forgive me for nit-picking, but that has got to be the most funny and stupid smorgasbord of U.S. aviation history I've read.

Cool looking guitars, BTW.

the tele's need to have the pickups reversed. humbuckers in the neck position like keith richards.

So THAT'S how it's pronounced. Is Ibanez a Spanish company? I always kind of assumed they were straight outta Korea...

I play an Ibanez RG Deluxe (which I beat up so badly in gigs over the years that it kinda looks more like a Telecaster http://forums.ubi.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif)

A cheap Epiphone Les Paul.

And a beautiful, sexy, Maton Mastersound Semi-hollowbody.

Maton are an Australian guitar manufacturer - mostly they make some of the best acoustic sounds you'll hear. A couple of years back, though, they produced the 'mastersound' series, a rich, versatile set of electric guitars based around a proprietry, customisable set of humbuckers.

Man oh man, I played it next to a genuine Les Paul Studio and bought the mastersound on the spot.

I work in export certification of various products. One of the oddities that we have to certify at times are guitars. These are classic pieces being sold in Japan. I have seen many wondrous pieces , like prototype Les Paul guitars.
Why are these guitars requiring certification? Its the wood that they are made from. Brazilan Rosewood and Bigleaf Mahogany (in the past year) are covered by CITES (Convention on Internation Trade of Endangered Species). All that is needed on the guitar to require it to be certified can be just the strip of veneer on the fingerboard made from Brazilian Rosewood.
The type of certification is called "Pre-CITES" for those pieces that were produced from material harvested prior to the regulation. Most times nobody will check your guitar for CITES purposes, but if you made an investment into a good instrument its worth it especially if you travel internationally and take the guitar with you. The dealer should have supplied you with the paperwork when you bought it. With this dealer mentioned above first check if the Mahogany is Bigleaf (Swietenia macrophylla), which is one of the better woods for musical instruments. A good dealer will have the documentation required. You can also contact your nation's Office of Management Authority, in the USA its US Fish and Wildlife to help with the certification process.

Ibanez is in fact, a Japanese company, founded by Hoshino Gokki in the 50s. But its name, 'Ibanez', is derived from the Spanish surname 'Ibáez'. ¿The reason? Well, Gokki started his business making replicas of classic Spanish guitars, precisely those made till then by a Spanish luthier called that way. In the 60s, when electric guitars rised their sales in the USA, Gokki adquired all the rights for the name 'Ibanez' -depriving it of ortographic marks for marketing reasons- and the company started its US enterprise.

I used to play a '71 Gibson SG until I found my PRS. Now I am spoiled and that is the only guitar I play.

Funny market guitars... When we're kids we have eyes for weird shapes, and loads of bells and whistles. As we get older we find that all the guitars that play really nicely are almost all conventional shapes, and have no bells and whistles worth a second glance. The one exception being Parker Flys which drip technology.

For myself I have an old Yamaha RGX 321 FP which I have barely touched for years (metal plates in both wrists and one shoulder = ouch).
