Been reading, and thanks for the good info, I'm new here and have a few questions. I played Ibanez back when I was starting out (my 1st electric was a silver cadet), and I think I also had an AX model for double humbuckers stuff that my strat couldn't do. A strage thing happened, I went play a few axes and found myself preferring guitars with slimmer necks (Ibanez and Jackson) to the stuff I've played for years (Fenders). I'm in the market for a new guitar in a few months (probably summer time) And I finally have the means to get something really nice, and looking at what you get for your money, Ibanez Prestige guitars are a pretty good value when you compare them to some other high quality (and high price) guitars.
the models I'm considering are:
JS1000 or JS2000
I'm trying to keep this as close to $1,000 to $1,200 as I like the RG3120, but I've heard some bad things about the new trem system, so that got me thinking about the S1620 with the ZR trem, The JS
models are cool, but I'm not big on playing someone else's guitar if you know what I mean (That guys a Satch freak, he plays the sig model) but I've always loved his tone. I suppose I could mod the pickups maybe put a coil splitter in one of the other models if I gelt like it. My main concern is the trem, I don't want to have to do major repairs in 5 years on this thing.
I guess I'm also looking for max versitility, this will be my #1 guitar for quiet sometime, and I need it to do alot. My styles are anything from classic rock to modern rock (not nu metal) and anything else I feel like playing at a particular momemt. Let me know your thoughts, and thanks in advance for your help!
