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.

Gosh! you are being such a baby!!! for a 35 year old you have a lot of growing up to do No need to be belligerent! I am accusing you of nothing! Lay off the decaf and get back on Prozac and then and only then will you be able to unravel the mystery of "The missing harmonics" Repeat after me: Wood is my friend!!!

Re: Ibanez JPM Specs

Thats one sexy Ibanez......
fact is, it cant be that bad of a guitar... Good enough for JP to record a few albums, with this band, you may have heard of them. I think they are called Dream Theater ?

Re: Ibanez JPM Specs

As in all things guitar. It's all preferance so if you don't try one out and are unhappy after you buy one it's your fault not anyone else's. So modernguitarist, don't lean so much on what we say. Yeah, ask us if it is quality and worth looking at. Discount the lame answers by strange posters (no one in this thread but there are some on the forum). And then go try one.

That's all anyone can really do. Yeah, I know they are hard to find, but it's the only way to be 100% sure about a guitar purchase.

Re: Ibanez JPM Specs

I love the JPM. The neck is very comfortable and I think it has unique sounds and excellent quality. For me it is really a collector item though - I have a dead mint 90th Hoshino Anniversary JPM that I got from Rich in 2001 and I would highly recommend it to anyone. Mine has a beautiful flame top on it. If you can find a "player" of one of these - get it.
