Ok, guys, I'm sure you all did it - or did you?

Was surfing around, and hit a website where i saw a name which has become familiar to me only through jemsite. It was Ed Romans webpage. Out of curiosity I went to the Ibanez page.
............................................Mercy. Has this guy got some anger or what? It seems, from what i can tell, that you guys have been hammering him pretty hard. Or someone has. He has a display of Ibanez guitars and a nasty commit with about every one. Its to the point that i think he has developed true prejudice toward these guitars rivaled only by the prejudice of skinheads toward ...... well, just about everyone but themselves. hehe
Saddly, the truth is that most everyone i know in the field of guitars and stuff either really reaaly reeealy Love the high end Ibanez, or hates em all with prejudice and won't even give any a subjective look-over. I am really puzzled as to why. I truely do not understand. But i hear it alot everywhere i go and talk to techs. They hate Ibanez. I think Iby is good and has been good for a very long time.
Remember the Pro Line 1440? Yeah ancient rock guitar. Just Bought one the other day for next to nothing. It's clean tone is so GOOOOD. Active elect. I matched it against my friends new Custom US strat. It sounded equally as good. He agreed, said it was a fluke that guitar turned out so good. I say no, its not a fluke. Its an Ibanez.

I don't suppose calling Ed for a price would be anything more than a wasted call. He sounds like he hang up as soon as you say Ibanez.

I'm not sure on the whole Ed Roman deal either. He does like to talk outta his arse tho - and by the sounds of it, he is a little racist.
Something along the lines of
"Don't buy Japanese guitars - only buy American - they are better" - hmmm patriotic is probably a better word that racist - but he does talk anally.

BTW - no point calling him - as it says his "firewall" blocks out anything with Ibanez in it.
