+1. Someone who can shred can shred on pretty much any guitar. Gibson sucks because they want too much for a mediocre, unexceptional guitar. They've done nothing new forever and they make me yawn. And my first electric was a Les Paul. Who in their right mind would want a Les Paul for $2000+ when you could get a *much* better j.custom for that?

Prestige necks


Oh yeah, and did anyone mention because they make JEMS!!!

While I won't say Gibsons suck, I don't like them just the same. Like playing a flat plank!! LP's are some of the most uncomfortable necks I've ever played.

But then, I learned on a strat

Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

Yeah the prestige necks, the never detuning tremolos and finish is what i think drove into using ibanez, its like a custom made just out of the box.

Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

For me the RG is the ideal guitar. It sounds great. It is great to play. It is comfortable. It looks good. It's good quality. That's why I use Ibanez.

Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

The Best answer for this Thread is that Ibanez is the best Guitar-Brand on earth, that's what I think..........I have alway's been in-love with the Wizard neck and ofcourse the best Trem's in the World named "The Edge" and "The Lo-Pro" !!

And.......... Like "JJEMMER777" said about Gibson's, they're good guitar's but I dont like em...........but I can say "Screw Fender Strat's of all Kind"

Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

all i want from a guitar really, is that it gigs week in and week out with out ever going wrong. the ibanez pretty much does that. add to that the fact that they look cool as hell and make actually play better (no joke), and there is really no contest as far as i'm concerned. i do own other guitars, but its my two ibanez's that go everywhere with me. fact.

Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

it's really pointless discussing something based on an opinion...

Anyway, i like the build quality, necks, edge and lo-pro trems, feel, etc, etc, etc

They're great guitars!
