Re: my new Xiphos!

Nice, I love DiMarzios on them. Wish Ibanez would make prestige versions.

Re: my new Xiphos!

I was in Guitar Center the other day and picked up crappy playing guitar after crappy playing guitar there. Bad Jacksons, Bad Dean's, Bad Schecters, Bad BC Riches, crap crap crap. Then I pickup up a neck-thru Xiphos, checked out the excellent finish, perfectly done fret ends, excellent setup, DiMarzio pickups and thought, WOW what a great guitar. I couldn't believe it when I turned it over and it said "Made in Indonesia". It was way too nice for an Indonesian guitar. I figured for sure it would have at least been built in Korea. That was one excellent guitar, just as good or better than any Prestige model they had there.

From what I heard, Korea/Cort Factory and Ibanez are through. So more Indonesian guitars will be appearing, apparently.
