Re: Just got my American Master - Best Ibanez ever made
Didnt do a search, it was just near the top of the forum when I glanced at the forum.
And its really not just a plug for the ad; those things do just kick total ass. THe MA1 is strung 13-62 at standard pitch (EADGBE); the MA3 sort of "maxes out" in terms of what the truss rod can keep the neck flat at, at 12-56 std pitch, or it wouldnt be up for sale. I just like the really heavy strings, so the MA1 gets the majority of the playtime for that kind of guitar. The neck on the MA1 is a bit beefier which probably explains that, the MA3 is the thinnest neck I've ever encountered.
What ever happened to the page that used to be on this site about AMs? Last time I tried to find it I couldn't.
