Ibanez 1990 Reissue Universe Multicolor

Dear guitar manufacturers, will y’all stop coming up with all this great stuff that I just have to have? I got two kids you know, and although they don’t know it yet, I plan on sending them through college. That ain’t gonna happen if you guys keep coming out with stuff like this:

It’s funny you know – call it serendipity, or just plain dumb luck, but I was on the bus this morning (being over 30 this makes me a failure apparently) and I was listening to some Dave Lee Roth with Vai on guitar and I thought – ‘hmm – might be nice to get a Jem, after all, I love my Ibanez S570 and that’s more of the same innit, i.e. a really cool modern rock guitar’, then I promptly shelved the idea in my mental recesses. Then, surfing around and *bam* – along comes this darn Universe, that I will just have to go and buy.

B*stards!

  1. OK. Lets break this down, shall we?

    1) You took a bus to work.
    2) You have got 2 kids.
    3) You want to send [2] to college.
    4) You are a gear slut.

    If you are stuck in your crappy old job working for an crappy old company, all is not lost. Someone once told me when I wanted to buy a bass – go pluck the last 4 strings of a guitar and pretend they sound an octave lower. By the same token, you can pluck your Ibanez S570 and imagine it is a Ibanez 1990 Reissue. My 4-year-old also asks us to call him Don Henley or Glenn Frey when he is “performing”. It works for him. Maybe you should try it 🙂

    However, if you choose to remain at [4], I have a few solutions for you:
    a) Get a better job and have someone drive you to work.
    b) Get a better job and be able to send [2] to college
    c) If [b] fails, might as well forget about college. Get them to work young and feed the habits of [4].

    I’d say that since it is all about compromise, [c] sounds good.

  2. I forgot …

    – OR –

    Make something like this (https://gitbuddy.wordpress.com/2010/03/01/really-youre-making-and-trying-to-sell-that/).

    Dump your morals. Grow up and be a snob. Get rich off others’ foolishness and live happily ever after.

    always liked that ivy tree thing on the fretboard with Vai’s guitars….
    though this one looks pretty neat.

    not sure on the flight case..but then what would be suitable ?

  4. raoulduke112 Says:

    I wonder if Ibanez have twigged onto the whole Custom Shop artist / tribute limited edition thing that Fender and Gibson have started doing?
    I suspect this re-issued Universe will have the appropriate price-tag?

  5. They’d be daft not to charge a premium for this – they should know by now that people *will* pay it. Suckers like me. 🙂

  6. That’s a nice colorful electric guitar lol. Looks really gorgeous! I have an old Gibson guitar that I was able to buy after living an year on beans and rice. So don’t get me started if I can afford this guitar lol. Perhaps if I live 10 years on just water 😀
