Ibanez RG421 . . . what a buy!!!
It's funny, I've owned at least one guitar from just about every major manufacturer . . . I can't stop coming back to Ibanez! When I was in high school, I played a hot-rodded Les Paul . . . I considered the V as a possible return to the land of Gibson . . . somewhat for nostalgia, somewhat for variety. I couldn't find a faded V in a local store, so I played the real deal $1,200+ '67 Reissue V . . . didn't care for it much at all. That solidified my decision.
I've been playing guitar for almost 13 years. I've owned high end Strats, Gibsons, Jacksons, Parkers and Ibanez. The one's I haven't owned, I've played at some point and decided against them. After trying nearly one of everything, I keep coming back to the "if it ain't broke, don't fix is" philosophy. For my playing style and taste, the Ibanez Jems/RGs are perfect. Even when I try really hard, I can't convince myself to buy another manufacturer's guitar! :loco:
