Am I the only one who isn't a fan of Ibanez guitars?

Except for the JEM series, they're the only Ibanezes that I've played and liked.

But I don't know... other than that I haven't played an Ibanez I've liked. Maybe it's just me.

Well, everyone has an opinion. I don't like the entire Ibanez line-up, but I do like some of them. Same thing goes for other makers, as well. Hell, if you like it or don't, who cares what other people think.

I can't stand all the new low end RGs, hate the necks, hate the edge III, and the quality is crap (Korean models).

OK, how much did PRS or Gibson pay you to say this?

If you are into southern classic country music, than sure, a 24 fret, locking trem, thin necked guitar probably isn't for you.

Re: Am I the only one who isn't a fan of Ibanez guitars?

Okay, too many people are taking my statement WAY too personally.

First off, I just said I wasn't a fan of their guitars, save for JEMs (that's why I'm here...). I didn't say they were bad, each to his or her own. It's just my personal opinion, I'm not forcing it on you.

And no, I'm not a southern rock or country player. In fact, I think a 24-fret locking trem model wouldn't be bad, but quite useful for shred, which I've been getting into, and even classical stuff.

As for PRS, I personally am not a fan of them either, I've just never found their guitars to feel right. I think that a guitar should be able to sonically and musically portray emotion, I don't feel anything when I play a PRS. Even Gibsons, I've not been a huge fan of their stuff; it's decent, but not amazing. It's my personal taste.

Even everything Fender puts out isn't gold. There's a LOT of crap in their line. If I don't like Ibanez, that's my personal taste. I don't care what YOU play, it's whatever you feel personify's your sound the best.

I was just wondering if anyone else here just liked the JEMs and not Ibanez in general.

Re: Am I the only one who isn't a fan of Ibanez guitars?

I'm with you City'.I only like Jems out of the Ibanez range and then I only see them as a novelty guitar,although one that plays great.If I wasnt a huge Vai fan when I was a kid I wouldnt go near them at all! Of the Ibanez type of rock guitar I'd rather go for an ESP or Jackson.
I think the next guitar I'll get will be a LP Custom or a Esp GL.

No one is really taking it personally, I just think your nuts not to like Ibanez, they have great colors way more interesting bodies than most, and they seem to have an edge on all other brands.

Maybe its the logo and the Headstock.

For some reason I look at any guitar and then when I raise my eyes to the headstock and dont see the Ibanez and the little Z ontop, Im just not interested.... Maybe im obsessed or maybe im a FREAK

I'm exactly the opposite, I think the Jems are gaudy and ugly. I'd rather have a MIJ RG. Hell, I'd rather have a 70/80's artist model over a Jem.

Nothing Ibanez has put out since lately has gotten me excited, but I love the older IBZ.
