Kind of ugly, but I kind of love it. More charmingly cheesy than that Paul McCartney Rick...

Interesting that the knobs are in the "right hand" position...

That bugged me at first until I realized that it was to keep it away from the print on the lower side of the body.

Nope, this is intended for right handed playing. The knobs were moved, the strings are reversed, and it has a strap button at the heel.

It looks like it’s built right handed with a reversed body. There’s only back routing on the one side. I guess they were shooting for a “Jimi”, “psychedellic” vibe.
I get irrationally irritated when I see these reversed right handed instruments; “No, we shouldn’t build left handed models, there’s no market for it. We should definitely build more right handed guitars with left handed bodies though.”

I think you're right, Jeroen.

And Murzenquest, I would tend to agree, but Ibanez takes pretty good care of lefties, so I'll give them a pass on this :-)
