Re: what kind of picks do you use?
I have never seen Ibanez picks. Are they any different than let's say Fender picks?
What is cool about Ibanez though is they take a concept like a strat and improve on it (Blazer, Roadstar, RG, Jem), Les Paul (Ibanez Artist), ES-335 (John Scofield model), Floyd Rose (Edge tremolo), Fender Champ (Tube Screamer amps), and of course MXR Distortion+ (the iconic Tube Screamer pedal). It's never enough for Ibanez to make a direct copy but they add something players complain about and offer ideas for change.
I think perhaps the best thing they have ever done is the tube screamer.
