Ibanez - not copied????
Since I've become addicted to Ibanez guitars.....these necks just make it hard to play other guitars.....I've been wondering why it seems no other guitar maker really ever tried to compete directly with the thin, awesome necks. I mean,,,,Jackson USA, Fender, Gibson,,,,,pure beefy necks. Sure, Hamer came kinda, sorta close--I used to own an old Centaura that was pretty thin. But not like an Ibanez. Even my ESP M-ii is pretty thick. You'd think some of these other companies would try and go for the Ibanez market....at least with some models.......but I've tried/owned a lot of guitars by many companies, and it seems no one has ever really tried to step much on Ibanez's toes. I wonder why. I know for the big USA companies,,,they've stuck to the same formula for years due to pride, etc. Even my Jackson soloist- a so-called shred guitar- has quite a log of a neck. For me, with smaller hands,,,I can't imagine better necks than my Ibanez guitars.
