You can call it being sore but really, it's not. Ibanez obviously has fallen out of favor with the public (which sucks when I now have 13 Ibanez guitars up on ebay). Least they're not ones you see all the time so maybe I'll do ok. That sparkle guy always had JCustoms and if people wanna pay more for a 2010 model with a Edge Zero on it instead of a 2006 model with an Edge Pro for less money, they apparently are not wise in purchasing high end Ibanez.
I really don't thing this is the case at all. I sold one of my other J Customs with an edge zero last month on the bay for exactly $2150 + shipping. I paid $1999 for it from the famous source.

To me it sounds like Ibanez guitars are out of your favour and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that at all. People change their preferences. I've had Ibanez guitars since around 1984 and I still keep using them. I took some time outs from them and moved to Fender and then PRS stuff, many regular Ernie ball guitars and a couple of the Ernie Ball BFR guitars....but in essence, my three J Customs and my newest Apex are all great guitars and I'm very happy with them. Funny how I came back full circle to what I really like. The other thing is that the economy in the US isn't helping matters.

Hope you can at least get a bit better value for that guitar. It's a beauty and if the timing was better I would have given you a much better offer on it.

I didn't follow your auction, but this guy just sounds crazy. Who wants a 20+ lb, oversized package shipped to them next day air? Particularly when they live on an island in the middle of the ocean?

Oh well, hang on to it for a bit, I'm sure you'll eventually get a decent price for it.

Re: I got the JCustom blues

This is a great site. First post here. I like those J Customs they made in 1997. Especially RG GEAR and RG ARCH. works of art.

Re: I got the JCustom blues

Haven't you heard that Judgement Day is coming on the 21st?

http://newsfeed.time.com/2011/01/03/...-of-the-world/

Some of these guys were demonstrating in DC last week. The good news is that May 21st is the first day of a week long vacation at a beach house with a bunch of friends for me. So I'll definitely be stinking drunk when the Rapture happens!

The blues, they are over. A fine trade with fellow Jemsiter Mass Hysteria. Thread can be locked. Or not. Either or. LOL
