Ibanez Rules - Authorized Ibanez Internet Dealer now!

Hey there.
I was wondering if buying an Ibanez JS1200CA is a good idea considering I live on Mainland Britain?
If I am to buy one from anywhere I will have to have it delivered as there isn't a shop near me that can do one for a great price.
What are your thoughts guys?
Cheers.

I think if you order from Rich you'll be pleasantly surprised.

Re: Ibanez Rules

I ordered an RG20th from Rich. It saved me money compared to a UK shop even taking into account shipping and import duty. Shipping via Fedex only took 3 or 4 days as well. Go for it you won't be disappointed

Re: Ibanez Rules

I bought my JS1200 from Rich.

Granted, it wasn't shipped across the pond.

Can't go wrong. His set-up and attention to detail make it well worthwhile. I gave mine a quick truss rod adjustment the day I got it, and have only fine tuned it since. In almost 3 months I haven't even had to loosen the lock nut. Everything was just dead on. Not a smudge or scratch on it anywhere. The very definition of Dead Mint.

Re: Ibanez Rules

Highly recommended. Even with his great setup and shipping he beat the price I was going to spend at a store(which wouldnt have been set up well).

Simple choice really, great instrument, or just a guitar

He'd only be surprised if he was expecting a JEM

Probably long overdue for a string change

Big fan or the Ernie Ball string wipes. I've cleaned the strings after very single play and they've held up better than I expected.


I could still sell that guitar as Dead Mint, and I've played the crap out of it. I almost wrap myself in bubble wrap each time I touch her. I've got plenty left over from your packing job

Re: Ibanez Rules

I've had 3 or 4 guitars from Rich and as a UK buyer he was a first class seller. If you're in a market for an Ibanez, he's the man. Plus that set up of his IS that good
Anyways, enough of the Rich love, I hate the guy really
