I can't believe this thread is still going on. It's like the pizza slice that gets nibbled at and put in the fridge again for another day.

One or two lost - two or three add. It's simple. Don't panic
Exactly

Ibanez was my first guitar and I don't care who plays them. All I know is I DO, and always will. RG's are like home to me.

Next topic.

Who gives a crap anyway. Play what you like. If I were a big rock star I'd use Ibanez's off the shelf RG's.

If I were a big rock star, I'd play whatever paid me the most money. Its not like you can't record and play in private with all your favorite brands..

Re: Another Ibanez endorsee jumps ship

Hi everybody,

I get all of you men.

Chris Broderick is great, especially, say, on classical guitar...

No: what I'd like to drop my 2c here for is, well, one of my very fav guitar heroes is Neil Zaza.

I love he's playin' (even if quite remindin' of Satch), but... look at what he did when started to endorse Carvin, right after Cort.

Attachment 3299

IMHO his signature was amazing to say the least... But hey... who criticize Carvin?!

Sad to say: "nothing personal... just business baby"

Cheers,
Wallace

I'd be interested most in "where" Pat Metheny went if he left Ibanez.

Re: Another Ibanez endorsee jumps ship

Im not a huge Megadeth fan, but they should have produced a model for Chris Broderick IMO. I think it would sell. Amazing player...

His signatures are still being sold arent they? He's still listed under "Artists" on the US ibanez site.

Seems to me like every single endorser is using an Ibanez trem. But I guess some can read their minds and know they don't actually want to be using an Ibanez trem. Hmmmmm.

Re: Another Ibanez endorsee jumps ship

I don't buy guitars based on who endorses or plays them. I play and buy guitars based on features that I enjoy.

If I bought guitars based on my favorite player's endorsements, I'd buy ESP (G. Lynch) and Suhr (Reb Beach) guitars. That's an expensive habit to get into.

I prefer Ibanez S Series guitars. The wizard necks are fast, the ZR trems on my newer models are incredible (to me), and the mahogany body lends to a tone that I like, while the saber body shape is comfortable and appealing to me visually. I don't care if nobody endorsed Ibanez, I'd still buy them.

If I want something different, I just build something with specs/color options/whatever that I like... but my mainstay is Ibanez guitars.

In reality, Ibanez guitars has done more to advance the instrument than a lot of companies have over the last 30 years or so. Any other company of any importance revolutionize the guitar in such a way that it's features are now considered standard (Thanks, Vai)? Ibanez, and it's experimentation with floating bridges (Edge, LoPro Edge, ZR, ect) is an example of a forward - thinking company, trying to improve features as opposed to being stagnant. Some Ibanez guitars or features (Monkey Grip, Sabre bodies) are so recognizable as to almost define the concept of forward design for all guitar makers.

No amount of money would make me switch. I have experimented for 20+ years as a player, and I have found a home with Ibanez guitars.

Re: Another Ibanez endorsee jumps ship

Mick Thompson left for Jackson.
Well, maybe Ibanez might sell the MTM without the "SEVEN" inlay? I haven't played one but since getting into fixed bridges the one thing I miss is fine tuners on the bridge. That's handy live if you're just a tiny bit out. And on spec they seem like interesting RG variants.

The Edge FX bridge (like on the JS2000) is great.... fixed, but with fine tuners.... love it!

The FXEdge Bridge is awesome. I think the JS2000 is one of the best guitars ever.
