my ibanez pisses me off:(

Prepare for a HUGE RANT. im gonna get railed for this but oh well. i have a rg320, when i bought it i loved it but since then i have been pouring money in it. pick guard, 2 sets of dimarzios, new pots, scalloped the high frets, new tuners, painted the headstock, new knobs and switch, new locking nut, and a edge pro. well the more money i put into it the more it lets me down. when the pots died i replaced them, when the tuners died i replaced them, the stock pickups where crap so i replaced them...twice, the edge pro 2 sucked....... massively, so i replaced it. now it wont stay in tune even after one dive bomb or flutter. i have broken 3 high e strings on it in the last month. im tired of it. im tired of wasting money on this piece of sh!t. i wish i wouldn't have spent 1000 dollars on a guitar i cant stand to look at, and i cant sell for 300 dollars. my other ibanez is a js100 and its great, i have dimarzios in it also and i am getting a gotoh for it at christmas. but i play my Chinese epiphone les paul the most out of my ibanezs and jackson, the jackson is sweet though. I am gettin an explorer next month so maybe im not cut out for superstrats. shrug

Re: my ibanez pisses me off:(

I would part the thing out and then use the money towards getting something you can really get into

Seriously, nobody is going to get on your case for not liking an RG320.

Re: my ibanez pisses me off:(

I would imagine a few people here suggested not wasting money tryin g to upgrade the guitar because you would never get the money back out of it.

Like 249 said part it out and get something else

Is this explorer you're gonna get an epiphone too? You're really better off just getting one good guitar then several crappy guitars you're going to just dump money into you won't get back and learn to hate.

Re: my ibanez pisses me off:(

yeah man, don't worry it's a cheapy guitar and maybe it's not your style. That's not a bad thing at all. I hope you find a guitar you love.

Re: my ibanez pisses me off:(

I don't think the problem was the actual guitar. More like how much money you sank into it. I know it's towards the lower end...Heck, I had one for awhile and completely loved it. Never had tuning probs and it played great. Still, I would have never put that much money into it.....So you live and you learn, no big deal.

Re: my ibanez pisses me off:(

well technically it wasn't that cheap at all... after the upgrades. i mean why would the trem unit suck and not stay in tune? probably just isn't set up right. and if it is, im sorry cuz i know that can irk some people. i have an rg320 that i love and is the best sounding electric i own, has a custom custom in the bridge, although i don't play it much.

also this is another reason to remember if you are thinking of sinking major money into a guitar, and the trem sucks. swap the trem FIRST to make sure all is well otherwise you'll be pissed later!! since usually the trem is the most expensive (and sometimes frustrating) part.
