Ibanezrules.com, is rich reliable?

Hey, i was going to buy an Ibanez RG1570, and i was looking around and was wondering if is Rich reliable? The guitars are alot more expensive than other ibanez due to the setup he does on them( i think that is really cool). i was just wondering if anyone could give me feedback because i really want to buy this guitar and wanted to know if the setup he does on them is worth the extra $$$, because i do want a fine playing axe even if it means more money. im sick of ordering guitars from Guitarcenter and to find that they play like **** and the fretjob is horrible. if he inspects the axes like he says this would be great. thx

Well i've never ordered a guitar off Rich (i don't even own an Ibanez-yet) but i've been on this forum and used to view the threads here before signing up long enough to know Rich is probably one of the most reliable,dedicated and honest Ibanez dealer/enthusiast you're likely to find. Many other people will say the same

Rich also will swap out the new studs for the Edgepro bridges for locking studs (as far as i know) so the new trem definately stays in tune. They wouldn't do that in Guitarcentre

Rich is THE MAN to buy high-end Ibanezes from. You will not be disappointed. Simple as that.

Bought my 2027 from Rich long ago - he's quite reliable. Call him and talk to him and you'll be impressed and can then proceed with the utmost confidence.

I've bought two Jems from Rich. Yes, he's reliable. He's fast, his knowledge is second-to-none, his prices are very competitive if not better all the way around, and he's almost always on the other end of his e-mail if you have a question.

Asking if Rich is reliable is like asking if Steve Vai is cool in the Vai.com forum

I'm sorry to wander off-topic but eh what exactly do you mean with this saying? To me it sounds like he's stupid or so (he knows (almost) nothing). Sounds pretty strange to me, it must be my english.

He means that no one knows more than Rich.

If you put people in a line, rich would come first in terms of knowledge, he's "second to none" (because he's first).

Cheers

No, but Rich is definitely reliable, going by what I've heard from friends and read about him online. :^p
