Nah, not being sensitive, I just don't like you. I've read many of your posts over the years and you always seem to be the contrarian and come off as a prick most of the time. I doubt I am the first person you've put off with your condescension. But I digress...
What pisses me off is not that fact that you can't possibly know my guitar since you've never played it, but rather you'd like to think that I
am the problem and that it is unlikely the guitar has the issue. But therein lies the problem... you seem to know everything. You'd rather assume that I am inferior, even stupid, compared to your guitar knowledge, playing abilities and guitar collection. You're just a dick. Period.
The guitar is quite playable and I love it. I use it often and it is one of my favorite guitars. I simply notice that is has less sustain than some of my others and is missing or lacking clear pinch harmonics in certain ares of the neck.
No one ever mentioned Defective Workmanship or the desire to have Ibanez CS step in to do anything. I'll repeat, the pinch harmonics the guitar is missing cannot be heard even with the guitar UNPLUGGED from any amp, thus bypassing electronics, amplifiers and effects. As you must certainly know, picking and strumming around on an electric unplugged is a good way to hear how resonant the instrument is (and before you make a smart-ass comment about it, YES you CAN hear artifical harmonics with an electric unplugged). I'm 35 and have been playing guitar since I was 15, so I can assure you that while I'm no Steve Vai or George Lynch I can
pinch a friggin' artificial harmonic.
Are you retarded?
All you had to say was that in your experience JPMs sound great... you didn't have accuse me of being the problem. If I had said the exact same thing (verbatim) to you it would have been WW III. You wouldn't have stood for it. I don't normally confront people online because it's pointless, and normally I ignore you
especially as the troll you are most of the time in posts like these... but I have to admit today you really made me angry.
Would it placate you if I reiterated that I love my JPM and that it is one of my favorite guitars? That way you might not feel that someone was possibly attacking a guitar you have in your collection. Wouldn't want your fragile ego to get bruised again.
