OK, it s great to know that you can actually fix the Edge Pro and make it work AS IT SHOULD RIGHT OUT OF THE BOX.
The fact that you make great set ups, doesnt help Ibanez, or compensate for their wrong calls. The % of Ibanez total sales that you account for, is a very small fraction. All the rest are stuck with pricey guitars, that are inferior to their previus incarnations.
May be if we send a letter to the CRM area at Ibanez signed by most of us (500-1000) should be more than enough, to voice a couple of concerns, we may at least get an answer.
This is a fairly global concern (its not like asking "he, please rerealeas the MCs, or "why dont you releas the J customs, or "you should make a fixed bridge jem"). Changing the studs should imply almost 0 additional cost for them.
