Re: It's quiet here.
I think people are right about FB taking traffic away. It also seemed like there were a lot of posts about the same things over and over. I stopped posting on those threads because the topics have already been discussed in previous threads.
I have pretty much stopped playing Ibanez guitars too. I have been very underwhelmed with the models they have been producing and the price points they are at. For the price of a premium I could get a Kiesel that is 3x the guitar. I am actually going to sell all my other guitars because of how good my Kiesels are. I like being able to choose my specs too.
The jem7vsbl was my dream guitar. I loved the blue color and vine. I played one and It wasn't for me. Fast forward a few years, and I end up getting a Kiesel 7 string Delos in sparkle blue new, for cheaper than I could buy the vsbl used. I couldn't get a vine, but I did get to customize a few options and get a roasted maple neck/fretboard and it is a 7 string.
anyways, I still pop over here from time to time but It is pretty dead.
