Ibanez Prestige

Hi boys, I would to know if the MIK Prestige have the same quality on MIJ Prestige.

I'm interested in some MIK Prestige guitar, but I don't buy if the quality isn't like MIJ Prestige.

Thanks a lot

Marco

Yes, they do....

'07 SA2160FM



OP: I think the quality of materials is close to the MIJ's, but I've heard a few complaints regarding things like fretwork/fret-finishing and the "fit and finish" in general.

I had a '03 MIK RGT that I loved. Other than a couple of rough fret ends, It was a damn fine guitar......... I'm always gonna regret selling that one.

Re: Ibanez Prestige

In looking further...... The MIK S2170 used a WizII prestige neck. This means that it received "prestige" fret finishing. This is also true for the '05 S2075, the '06 S20065, and the '07 S4170. I'm sure there were others too.

This is good resource for Ibanez specs....have a look:

Sorry for the lack of knowledge, I do own a few Koren made guitars, Workmanship is top notch.

Re: Ibanez Prestige

I have a old Korean made Ibanez... cheapo model. But it still feels better than a lot of newer big name, USA-made guitars.
