Re: Ibanez SC500N experience?

they actually sound fairly convincing through the right amp. in terms of playability, they come in right where you'd expect them to, just between an electric and a classical. i remember playing one through an swr acoustic amp at the sam ash near here and being very impressed by it. it was on the floor for less than a week, though. that was the only time i've ever seen one for sale, in person or online.

I owned one for a couple of months but I thought it was crap.

It depends on what you are looking for really. If you intend to play classical music with it (like I did), forget it. If you are looking for something to play some chords I guess it could do the job.

Great guitar. I had one for about a year. It feels like an electric.

It's the ideal guitar for playing electric guitar stuff with a nylon string sound. Yngwie Malmsteen, Steve Stevens Stuff or jsut chords.

I really regret that I sold it

Re: Ibanez SC500N experience?

I remember seeing one of those on the bay for a pretty penny. Do a search and you can find out how much it went for. The guitar is definitely cool but, with a nylon string, the biggest problem one will encounter is the definition factor. I've heard many pro players playing a nylon string in the studio and it sounds amazing but, once the guitar is out in the elements, its sound becomes really thin, which is something a nylon stringed guitar isn't.
