USRG20TP review

I have been shredding for over 27 years. I have owned just about every kind of guitar on the planet from every manufacturer. Without question... my USRG20TP is the finest playing and sounding guitar I have ever owned and IMHO absolutely the finest guitar Ibanez has ever made. If any of you are considering one.. don't hesitate. It will become your main axe the minute you pick it up.

What else have you owned and played that you would put it up against? Not trying to be sarcastic....just curious.

I'm actually a big fan of RG's....particularly the higher end ones.

I can go on and on and on and on!!!! I only listed the shredders.
The USRG is it for me. I am now looking for a USRG30 to add to my collection.

But these were not made by Ibanez (see the usa custom area & spec sheet on jemsite)

In all honestly the USRGs are well made and have a unique alder body w/ the maple cap. Good to hear you enjoy the axe so much ... glen

But wasn't Dave Bunkers company overseen by Ibanez? The neck is surely his design but I would imagine Ibanez had a heavy hand in the design. A mega sized company such as Ibanez would always demand maintaining control over products that bears their name. Regardless of the actual origin of manufacture, it says Ibanez on the headstock and that is good enough for me. Thanks for the reply.
