Re: guitar that hooked you on Ibanez?

What sold me initially many years ago was the body shape: really sharp looking Later Ibanez fueled it with something like RG-ART, JPM, vine inlay.

Re: guitar that hooked you on Ibanez?

My first Ibanez was a 1994 RG 450 DX WH that I bought back in 1996. 6 years after I started playing guitar. I was really hooked when I bought my first 7620 in 1998 though.

I gave it a test ride and I was in love forever. Never felt so comfortable on anything other than an Ibanez. They really are kick ass guitars!
Nice FGM.

Re: guitar that hooked you on Ibanez?

i remember when i first saw a picture of satriani playing an ibanez. he was the only guitar player i listened to besides alex lifeson (Rush) and i immediately needed to buy an ibanez. i guess i wasn't really hooked on any ibanez in particular, more or less hooked on a player that used ibanez.

Re: guitar that hooked you on Ibanez?

In 1992 or so I picked up an RG570 for $250 in a pawn shop without really knowing what it was. It didn't occur to me that it was anything particularly special, though I loved it (previously I had a strat). But over the next few years, I played all kinds of guitars and slowly it dawned on me that, holy cow, my little Ibanez really does kick mucho burrito.

Re: guitar that hooked you on Ibanez?

I guess I'm still fairly new to Ibanez guitars (and to guitar playing in general). I don't exactly what which guitar was technically the first Ibanez guitar I ever played, but the guitar that made me say "OMG I MUST OWN AN IBANEZ GUITAR" was a 2004 S470DX. As soon as I put my hands on that neck I was completely hooked. I never actually bought that particular guitar and instead opted for RGs but I do still want one. Of course, what I REALLY want is a guitar that's exactly like an S series guitar but with a fixed bridge (or atleast a bridge that's not floating). I've tried those SA guitars and they are decent but the necks on them aren't nearly as comfortable.

Talking Re: guitar that hooked you on Ibanez?

I wanted a Rg long before I could play guitar. I didn't even know what is wizard neck, edge, etc..even the type of the guitar (RG), all I knew was : this is really cool guitar with Ibanez brand on it. sharp looking, cool inlays (sharkteeth), I have no idea how it plays, how it sounds, I just know I love it.

the first Rg i owned is RG 250 BK japan from 94. I sold it already and replace with a real deal RG 520 QS.
Now my collection is growing to 7 Rg's. And I ain't gonna stop

Paul Gilbert's PGM300. As soon as I saw it, I fell in love with it. Ended up buying a JS instead though.
