Re: Ibanez Destroyer
You know what, this is a cool debate because it used to be japan that made stuff that ruled. Nowadays you can buy korean instruments that are of outstanding quality and every bit as good as japanese models. I think that if you pick up an instrument and it speaks to you then who cares where its made. Some great guitar players throughout history have made incredible music on some really questionable stuff. Eddie's first frankenstein body was a 'second', Sears (oh my god!!) silvertone guitars have ended up on led zep's first album as well as albums by aerosmith and cheap trick. It's all in how you look at it. I own two jems, a paul reed smith, several gibsons and a whole bunch of other usa and japanese guitars. I bet I've put more time into playing my korean peavey v-type than all my others because the peaveys my beater. Thats right, the guitar I beat the crap out of most has turned out to be indestructable, tonal and impervious to the trash I put it thru and guess what....it sounds teriffic. Just my two cents.....open you rmind up to the possibility that location doesn't mean a guitar will suck.
