I did a search and didn't find much information about this guitar.

There isn't much about it on Youtube either.

General info and specs can be found here:

This one has an interesting guitar shape that is mostly like an "S" series top, but with a more RG style back. I'm not 100% sure about the Dimarzio KIKO pickups and what they'll perform like, but you may be able to get more details spec info on the pickups through DiMarzio directly.

From what I've played, these feel a lot like an RG or RGA guitar. The sound is fairly versatile so I wouldn't necessarily pin it as a "metal" or "heavy rock" guitar. The coil splitting options really open you up to a lot of possibilities. All in all, I really like the guitar for how much you can do with it. A lot of other signature guitars are built to a very specific type of sound or style to fit what that artist does most, but like I said, this one is really more versatile!

Hope this helps,

I found a video of Kiko going over the Premium version
Kiko Loureiro and his new signature Ibanez guitar, the KIKO10P-TRR

How did you like the neck compared to the RG Wizard / Wizard II?

I didn't feel much of a difference myself, but then again, I don't think I'm sensitive enough to feel the difference when it comes to a lot of Ibanez necks. Just looking at the specs, the RG necks tend to be a bit thinner than the KIKO, but again, since it is only a few millimeters difference, I don't feel a huge difference myself.
