It does not come up on the ibby wiki, the only info on a model similar to that is cheaper indo ones (that go for about 400usd new)
Yeah, it's making my head spin, too. When I googled it, this thread came up as the 7th result.
I'm curious about doing a mahogany neck-thru. Does anything like that currently exist?
Thats a good question and surprisingly not alot AFAIK Eric, Mahogany string-thru body yeah quite alot but not many mahogany neck-thru, From searching all I can find is older Ibanez models, Some Ed Romain bits, Other custom/not mass produced at all guitars and for maybe just like the 100th time, Good old ESP and their Horizon NTII model/NTIII maybe this year?

They however have the maple top which makes the thru-neck part only visible from the back/rear view. Possibly Dean/DBZ and B.C Rich have one or two where you can clearly see the string-thru design (Don't quote me on that one though). Maybe a few of the ESP LTD H & MH models also but again not 100% on that. The Horizon is the only 'good' looking one I am aware of at the moment. Plenty of bass guitars with the full-on thru-neck construction still available. The Ibanez i have is a Mahagony thru-neck but like that rather nice looking red one its not in production anymore. My search was hardly in-depth though it did bring up this one which is either a typo knowing the place or a model I was not aware of: http://www.thomann.de/gb/esp_horizon_nt ... c4ca1341c1
Oh did I ever mention to you guys that some swine stole my ESP Horizon NTII?
What a good "friend" and/or "bandmate" he turned out to be
Blackout Modular Preamp indeed is great as its fully bypassable so you really do get best of both worlds. I am thinking about (after some more essential bits I have to spend on are sorted) adding one to the Jackson Dinky DK2 with the Bareknuckle Warpigs dropped in I have been using alot recently as it would leave them in all thier glory untouched but also having the option/sound of a pair of active blackouts at the turn of a little pot - Seems like a win win to me personally
