Re: It's quiet here.

I do miss the old gang, I know they're around, but this place used to jump and you could refresh and there would be 20 (or more)new posts every 15 minutes.
FB claimed a lot of people, but the groups seem more... disposable? if one starts languishing, someone starts another with a new pretty picture and it starts all over.

That said, I am also, personally, playing other guitars than Ibanez. I still love them and am wanting a new toy, but I took a path of buying 1 ea. for a while and that meant ditching 15 Ibanez guitars to get 1 LP, Strat, Parker, Etc. So my need for instruments and gear has evolved which partially changed my focal point as well.

The early 2000s this place was on fire with life and information and I felt in spite of a few grandstanders we had a good group.

Re: It's quiet here.

I think it would be interesting to hear which Ibanez guitars you sold and which non-Ibanez guitars you bought and what you learned about "guitars" from that process. I'm sure there would be questions.

I too am interested in which Ibanez's you sold, but more importantly, which ones did you keep and why....

I am new on the forum as well. I have found a lot of good information here though.

Re: It's quiet here.

I actually just got a Tokai Les Paul. Not an Ibanez, but I play Japanese guitars almost exclusively these days (except for my Telecasters )

Me too.
I've a few made in Japan Ibanez.
But for some weird reason most of the other guitars I've had ended up being made in Japan too. Funny how it works out that way...

I sold a CIJ Fender tele 52 reissue and an Antoria SG with Bigsby. Currently playing a 70s Antoria Les Paul Tobacco burst.

Think antoria was the uk import name for Ibanez back then. Wiiquality seems very very varied.
The SG was rubbish but my Les Paul is an absolute keeper. Can get a crazy low action with no buzz and it has that real vintage mojo. Well it is 45 years old...
