Post Scale Length of Paul & Bruce's 1988 Custom Ibanez Guitar
I'm talking about the pink & green Ibanez - epiphone copies, and the pink & orange iceman/destroyers.

Anyone know if Ibanez stuck to the specs of the originals and made the scale length 24.75", or if they went with the more quintessential "super-strat" 25.5" scale length???

yeah, I was thinking about this too I'm getting it custom made, beathcez and I think it is the gibson scale with the biggest frets. I don't know the measurements, but I think that is. and I think I read it somewhere

24.75 is commonly refered to as "the Gibson Scale", as many of their famous designs use it (i.e. the Les Paul, their explorer, their Flying V, most ES models, etc.)

Based on some magazine pix, I'm going to guess that the pink custom epiphone shaped Ibanez has the longer 25.5 scale length. The upper frets don't look as "bunched-in" as they usually look on a smaller scale gtr.

now after watchin some clips with the Ibanez epi copies, I think they might be the shorter 24.75.
