Ibanez USRG30

I found an Ibanez USRG30 in prestige condition but I was wondering how good they are. I currently have a J Custom and P3. Will the Usa Custom feel like thoses. How do they compare?

Also, I dont really understand the free tension neck...

Re: Ibanez USRG30

Hi

Iīm guessing is the one at ICW. If so itīs a nice one and looks minty.

I have 2 of them and in my opinion there are one of the most underrated models and one of the better.

Clean sounds are very crystaline but with some kind of more "fat rounded sound" that makes it warmer. Distortion is amazing... is complicate to describe but it has some kind of more deep low sound that makes it more compact.

I donīt know wich model the J Custom is.. but I played with several and they donīt like me too much.. sounds more "plastic" for me. USRG I think is more similar maybe in sound to the JPM P3. Anyway it has a very unique feel of the neck about radius... itīs very thin and flat. So for me this guitar has very strong character.

I had 2 JPMs (P1 and P3) and finally sold them both and keep the USRG30, American Master and a couple of USA Customs that in my opinion have a little "extra" that makes the difference even when donīt have colors or picture finishes. Anyway JPM is a really good model as well.

Hope it helps a little and this is only my 2 cents. Donīt wanna say are the best guitars becuase I own them... everyone has his own true on this concernings, but as far as my experience with lots of Ibanez models I would prefer this ones.

Re: Ibanez USRG30

Thank you!

I'm buying it from a close friend for a cheap price (I believe...lol) and if I had to let go of a guitar, it would be the J custom. I understand what you meant about the sound and the tone of the guitar. Most of my rig,including amps and rack, works wonder with ibanez and dimarzios...

If you like the JPM you will LOVE the USRG. Let me know once you get it.

Good luck.

I think the USRG is more like a Wizard. Very thin but not too thin.
