Ibanez Prestige comparible to Jackson Fusion?

I've got an RG320DX that I love. Nice thin neck, bound frets perfect for my hands and playing style. I replaced the stock trem with a Gotoh Floyd

I also have a 1990 Jackson Fusion that is pretty close to the same feel. I dig the bound frets and bolt on neck.

Basically I'm selling my Jackson SL-1 due to a recent bout with tendinitis in both wrists and the neck is too fat to play comfortably anymore. Ishould have around $1400 or so to play with after I sell it.

My question is, is there a comparible Ibanez Prestige bolt on with bound frets and MOP inlays with a H/S or H/H configuration in that price range or less with a thin (like the 320, not the super thin Ibanez necks) neck for shredding style?

Any opinions are greatly appreciated.

Older Jackson Dinky's have sharkfin inlays and a very thin neck, my older dinky reverse has offset dots, but the neck is as thin or thinner than an original wizard neck. They'll run around 200-500 depending on what you get. If you can find a Jackson Soloist XL, it's a japanese soloist but the neck is thinner and wider, and it's neck through.

Charvel's aren't bad either, you might look into a 650xl. a 750xl, a model 5 or 6, but the neck's aren't as thin as wizards.

Ergonomics man. You need to figure out what's causing it, aside from playing guitar, and try to correct the problem by doing the task in a different manner.

For example, if your pc keyboard is too far away from you and you have to stretch too far to reach it (or something like that). People don't realize how much a simple thing like typing can cause tendonitis.

I would suggest to get some of those wrist braces and wear them throughout the day, it usually helps. Have you gone to an orthopaedic doctor and consulted about what can be done to your wrists? I think you can get surgery to remedy the problem.

I hope your wrists get better.

Re: Ibanez Prestige comparible to Jackson Fusion?

Looks like I may have a lead on an FGM100 if all goes well.

I went to PT and she gave me a bunch of stretching exercises that I do when they start to hurt. I tried the braces and that just made it worse for me. Stay away from surgery as only a last resort.

I'm on a keyboard all day every day at work so I had the OHSA guy come in and set up my work station. That has helped like nothing else. I can't believe the difference it made.

I can scan the exercises and mail em to you if you want them. Let me know.

Yeah, she was my baby and my #1 guitar in the family. Dead on on mint. I didn't want to sell it but it just hurt my left hand too much. My Fusion and my Ibanez's have nice thin necks that make playing a little bit easier on the wrists.

^^^^^ VERY important stuff...



I have gone through this myself. Also to the point of selling & buying different guitars to find something that was less painfull to play & even considering accepting the fact that I might need to find something else to do all together. It's a horrible thing to go through if you truly love playing.



My main problem was actually the angle I would have my arm/wrist when using the mouse.....I'm a lefty that plays righty so my mouse hand was also my fretting hand. I say "was" because I now mouse righty most of the time.

I had what I would consider fairly major problems for quite awhile before figuring it out. Some days I was fine though...days I was away from the computer for extended periods of time though I did not notice the connection for YEARS. Eventually the problem got bad enough that I was in pain for hours after using the mouse for awhile nevermind playing guitar.

Finding out what was causing it... Look into things you do that are not guitar related.


When I realized the cause it still took a long time for me to accept it because the painful situations went away gradually. Then getting into a routine of a slow controlled warm up & cool down procedure has made a huge difference..


In short, the pain & discomfort I was experiencing that forced me to re-evaluate how much I wanted to play guitar has become almost non- existant... by changing the way I use my mouse!
