Ibanez vs Jackson players
I spoke to a dealer in London yesterday that said Jackson were coming back into vogue after 10 years in the wildnerness, as a result of their dealers being significantly expanded to all fender dealers. And also due to Ibanez not doing anything significent in 18 months.
But if I go over to the jackson forums at jcfonline.com I question why are the people on this forum so nice in comparison. It seems like there's a lot of aggro over there. Not to mention being lied to by a Jackson dealer, in my own experience, and the 6-12 month wait on anything.
It's enough to make me forget abou these other brands and stick with Ibanez for the forseeable future. In the past Ibanez was the dark side when they were associated with nu metal, but today I just see them as banging out exceptional guitars for very little money by comparison to ESP and Jackson. But damn, IMO, Ibanez need to bring out some new finishes and get away from this drab stuff. And some new options such as maple and ebony fretboards, reverse headstocks, different pickups.
