What happened?

This place is dead!
No one is posting anything entertaining anymore. Just a bunch of "Please help me with. . . " and "Please identify my. . . . . " threads.

This has been a good year for Ibanez. Why aren't we discussing it over NGD and update threads?

I'd have to agree.. I'm gigging and trying to enjoy the 3 months of above zero weather we get here in the great white north

Nice ;o) Same here in Vancouver - just trying to enjoy some sunshine...it actually hasn't rained during the day here in the month of July, which is amazingly incredible for this part of the world, considering I have actually contemplated building an ark during some of the stretches of rain we get here...

I expect it to be quieter around here in the summer...it is what it is

Re: What happened?

Yep, I haven't had an NGD since 2010. Been running around chasing my kid too.
We used to get the Summer NAMM bounce about this time of year but Ibanez no longer attends Summer NAMM and waits until October it seems to reveal their "summer" models. I guess they want to get more buzz closer to the holidays.

Re: What happened?

I posted the other day about how this site is falling apart.
None of the pics of JEMs and UV work anymore, no one seems to care about fixing the pics.

I posted a a 7 + 7 NGD a just week or two ago.
I've got other guitars I haven't taken pics of yet.

Re: What happened?

The pics have been broken for years iirc.

I still think this is the go-to site for ibanez fans.

Re: What happened?

If jemsite is one thing, it is made for a more professional and mature musician/poster. I've found that rep and knowledge here weighs heavier than on other places like ss.org or HC etc.

That's true to a certain extent. But people don't even post original music on here anymore really. I couldn't get 2 people to play over a 3 minute jamtrack.

This place has gotten really empty for anything interesting, so I'm with Damien on this one. It's just not the Jemsite I joined.

I also agree with Sabastian. There is a wealth on information not only in the forum, but actually on the site. But some of the info is over 10-15 years old. Seriously need updated by somebody. Heck, I'd do it... I know few of us would do it, but these members aren't in charge. You see, stealth, this is the go-to Ibanez site, so it's really confusing to come here and see the Edge II is the current trem (according to the charts on the site).

Re: What happened?

There are a HUGE number of Ibanez experts here. Unfortunately, there are also a huge number of posters here who are only interested in the indo/intro guitars. That's why I quit posting here. The reason I came here no longer exists. Jemsite went from a wealth of knowledge about quality guitars to a noobs paradise. We used to talk about USAC's, and JC's, and Prestiges, RG5X's and RG7x's, and all the quality MIJ guitars. Now it seems like it's all about Premiums and GIOS. It's very frustrating. This was my home away from home because of the knowledge and expertise. Now it's just a home for budget guitars and beginners. No offense, but I'm not at all interested. Only reason I came back for this post is because I saw the post about the Genesis Collection, and I'm hoping it's a return to a focus on MIJ quality. If so, I'll be back. If not, I'll continue to lurk and shake my head.

And there's a reason why I'm no longer a paying member. If the quality comes back, I'll come back. It's just not the same anymore.
