I have not found this to be true at all. I've been on the Jackson/Charvel forum for about 5 years now and have found the members there to be very open minded about Ibanez.

I myself am a fan of both brands. Jackson is my favorite brand of guitar, but my #1 guitar is my Ibanez JEM 7VWH.

Re: Why do Jackson fans hate Ibanez?

Hey all,

new to Jemsite.

not new to forums.

i play Jacksons and Charvels and i love them but i also have a Ibanez 540p and a Ernie ball Axis.

i think most people who put down other brands just don't know what they are talking about.

Re: Why do Jackson fans hate Ibanez?

I love them all.
But I think Jackson "fanatics" are jealous because Ibanez really improved some concepts common to both.

Re: Why do Jackson fans hate Ibanez?

I dunno, I thinkt hat brand loyalty is strange. I just don't think there is a reason to limit yourself.

But, I think I'd trae my RG 560 for a jackson soloist (hard tail) right now.

Jackson's are the ORIGINAL superstrat, no arguing that. THey mark a historical event in inventing the original shred guitar. Not to mention their ultimate, uber guitar of the 80's and 90s [arguably their peak], was the Jackson Soloist, a guitar with certain features that Ibanez could not match with their peak guitars, for example, neck through bodies with ebony fretboards vs. Ibanez' bolts with rosewood boards, real mother of pearl sharkfin inlays vs. Ibanez's cheaper plastic ones. active electronics vs. passive, etc etc.

In the 80's and 90's Jackson was kind of looked at as a better guitar in certain ways. They were more expensive, and I believe they sold more guitars than Ibanez at that time [not 100% sure]. Not to mention Jackson is an American company and American companies get [imo, a tad] overrated due to patriotism and at times racism and ignorance. "I ain't playin' no jap guitar!!" how many times have you heard that? I won't start a hater thread, but guitars like Fender and Gibson command the highest prices per features ratio. To balance the argument, Carvin's, another US company, haven't commanded as high prices.

I've owned several Jacksons, got two Soloist XL's, owned a dinky reverse xl, soloist archtop pro, spectrum, 750xl, 650 custom etc. I'm a big fan of their Pro line since I love thin flat necks. I love my Ibby's too. But I feel you man. There is definitely an aura of arrogance from Jackson fans, in general, to Ibanez fans, in general. But watch the F out for guys who ONLY play american made strats and gibsons. They'll blow you away with stupidity and ignorance.

Re: Why do Jackson fans hate Ibanez?

Has anyone tried a Jackson Stars?


They're the Japanese Jackson factory. Actually, they used to make guitars for Jackson but they eventually split from Jackson and made the same guitars, with few variation and changed the name to Jackson Stars. They hold all the Japanese design copyrights for soloists, Dinkys and so on. They make good guitars IMO. I like them cause they have a lot more fixed bridge choices that are visually appealing as well. That's what i don't like about Ibanez. No cool fixed bridge guitars.


I don't know for sure, but maybe recently they have rejoined Jackson USA as a partner because over here you can order a USA or Japan custom shop guitar through a JAckson Stars dealer. The USA custom Shop is astromical as we all know but he Japan shop is fairly reasonable.

I don't know about all the hating buisness, I just like good guitars I don't care about the brand or the country of manufacturing. I just want it to be made well and not have had some kids in a sweat shop building it.

Re: Why do Jackson fans hate Ibanez?

Really, just one type of guitar for you?


I like Ibanez guitars and JEMs are nice but I wouldn't ever decide that only one make and model is a good choice.

To each his own though.
