Ibanez Universe Unreliablilty
I bought my Ibanez UV777BK over the summer. It was the best guitar I have ever played. Last week I took it in to get a set up done(the neck had bowed in a little due to me wearing it in, and it needed intonating). The guy performing the set up was a Professional Guitar Tech. I got a call a few hours ago saying that he was setting it up, but when he was locking the bridge end of the D-string in, the saddle broke off. The owner of the store said I was covered under warranty, but it would be next week before I got the part in, and then it would be ready to go. The problem is Sunday, my band has to do a show. Now I have to borrow my friends, scheter diamond series(which is a low stoop compared to a universe) to do the show. But i'm glad I at least have a 7 string available to me. I'm really ticked cause the guy at the store said the next time I restring, the saddle will most likely break again, due to the way the guitar is built(somthing about the tension being too strong and the bridge being too weak in the center). Another thing that makes me mad is the saddle is made of Pewter. That is cheap crap for an expensive, top of the line, Ibanez J-Custom shop guitar. I'm just really pissed cause i've only had the guitar for a few months and it breaks down right before a show. Has this happend to anyone elses gear? I bought the UV for reliability(i've never heard of this happening before). Or does someone know where I could contact someone who might be able to help me in the Ibanez company? Also, if anyone could give me some advice on somthing I could do to get it permanently fixed that would be nice, too. I don't want a guitar that will break everytime I restring it.
Should have bought a f'n Carvin.
