Re: Ibanez and soft wood
I play about 25 to 30 shows a year. Bar gigs mostly, but they're 4 hour gigs on average, weekends, all around beer swillin' drunken folks.
Yet my Ibanez 570 that's 16 years old now still looks very-fine. It has a few wear marks, no dings or chunks missing. I bought it new in '91 and I take good care of my gear too. I don't think that the woods are the problem.
Just gotta JS1200, and I am expecting that guitar, which is going to be a player, to have wear that resembles the 570 in about 10-12 years. But I use this stuff, it's all tools.
