Here, play this for fun, and Jackson guitars are weak.

bolt-on is not an inferior method of neck construction to neck-through, it's more of a choice, mainly for the tone the two produce.

anyway, i think it is more due to the name than anything. ibanez was producing guitars with equivalent quality in construction at the time, but jackson was just more well known and was played by more well known guitarists. that changed quickly when ibanez started mass recruiting endorsees.

Re: Why do Jackson fans hate Ibanez?

The idea that someone has to bash another brand of guitar pretty much tells you about their personal insecurities and social alienation.

Most people choose a certain brand or model of guitar that suits them or they get used to. To feel the need to put something else down is just plain juvenile ala "my dad can beat up your dad".

I was looking at buying an SL2H at one time but I didn't like the feel of it compared to the Ibby Prestiges I have. But it's not a bad guitar. Neither is a Strat (I built a Warmoth strat and it's great) or a Les Paul (my first electric, but I don't care for them any more) or a PRS, Parker, etc.

Whatever guitar you enjoy playing (and hopefully can sound good with) is a good guitar by definition.

Re: Why do Jackson fans hate Ibanez?

The JCF is pretty cool with regards to Ibanez. Not like the haters at HC.

My second guitar in 84 was a purple RS440 RoadstarII. Played it for 4 years til I bought a Charvel neck thru. Then I fell in love with Jackson and bought a first run Fusion, a first run Stealth and a pre Fender SL-1. Only one left is my Fusion and it is my workhorse.

But I still play the sheet out of my other 5 Ibanez's and pick up a different one depending on my mood.

I like Ibanez because you can get a quality axe for dirt cheap. With Jackson's gone are the days of Grover and hand made quality. Fender jacks the price way up and QA has suffered and the old 80's-90's killer axes (US or MIJ at that time) are getting harder to find.

But you can ALWAYS find a great deal on a quality RG or Prestige on the auction site. Not so with the older Jackson's.
And I would NEVER not play one or the other based on social acceptance.

Re: Why do Jackson fans hate Ibanez?

Maybe it's because Ibanez guitars aren't pointy enough? But I guess thats changing now that the XPT and such are around.

Re: Why do Jackson fans hate Ibanez?

I've played jackson and I actually love them over the ibanez which have the same price tag. But seriously though any yamaha guitar will pound any other guitar brand, their guitar neck action and feel is the best IMO but seriously underated.

You know what's funny though. Here in Japan Yamaha guitars are hard to find and they are expensive.

Yeah, Japan likes to really promote Japanese things. So they really pump up the "it's Japanese" thing. Ibanez is a bit effected by this. ESP is the one that gets it the most.

But, I don't mean astronmically proced. I just mean a bit more than it is in the States and not counting currency exchange.

Re: Why do Jackson fans hate Ibanez?

I never got the message about not liking Ibanez's either. My Jacksons & Ibanez's are in different rooms though so maybe it's not an issue for me.
