Sup Jemsite!!!

I am getting back into playing seriously again and I have been searching for a new ride. I have been looking real hard at the S5470F. I was at the Sam Ash in Manhattan and played the S5470 (brown). Was going through a line6 it played sweet. I read your forum and others and this guy gets 50/50 so I guess I need to real advise before I float a $1500 nut.

Re: S5470F

My kid's a little shredder, and he has an S5470 (oil rubbed finish) that he loves. To put it in context, he also has a PGM 301 and a JEM77V. Of the 3, the JEM is his favorite because of the neck, but at a grand more, why wouldn't it be? He likes the PGM and the 5470 about equally, but I always see him pick up the 5470 to noodle with. fwiw, he also has a BC Rich Assasin (Dragon's Blood) that isn't even in the same class as the Ibis, (although it is a beautiful guitar except for the Rockfield pickups, which got no highs to speak of).

Re: S5470F

Hey guys thanks for the feedback. Kinda busy so I have not had a chance to get back on here.

I will have you know that through investigation and all your testimonials. I have pulled the trigger with Rich and my S5470FSPB is on her way.

I am actually gonna go and pick her up so I will be able to meet the Master and report back!! (hehehehe)
