Re: Ibanez JCRG vs. Palm Bay CYCLONE

I would go with the Ibanez myself.
I am not a huge fan of the Palm Bay guitars myself. I have heard good stuff about them, dont get me wrong. But they just never really "floated my boat" as such. And their resale value isnt very good either, they seem to go cheaply on Evilbay nowadays.

But its all down to your personal tastes. I suppose you have to play both to know 100% which you prefer.

JCRG of course . Gary's suggestion playing them both before you decide might be a good idea .

Re: Ibanez JCRG vs. Palm Bay CYCLONE

.. I have played one of these.... same colour scheme... A fine guitar but the J-C will always be easier to sell!

Which JC is it??

Re: Ibanez JCRG vs. Palm Bay CYCLONE

I'd go with the RG8670. It's one of the best feeling guitars I've tried and I highly recommend it.

Not a fan of that color scheme, it would look better as one color. I'd take the JC as well.

Re: Ibanez JCRG vs. Palm Bay CYCLONE

Personally i wouldn't even say a Palm-Bay and a JCRG in the same league!

Palm-Bays are soooooo '80s in their styling and whole image as well as playability.

Get the JCRG.

Re: Ibanez JCRG vs. Palm Bay CYCLONE

I totally agree with JTM except for the playability part. I can't see why it couldn't have just as good playability as a JC.
