Talking Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

We use Ibanez because we want to follow our idols like Vai, Satch, Timmons or Gilbert..... especially me. I dont know about you guys??? Holding my JEM guitar, I would pose infront of the mirror giving me a smile and that "Vai" look. Immediately I fell in love with me. I almost kissed myself on the miror......

With an Ibanez more than any other guitar, I really think you have to look the part to play it.

Me likey the necks.

Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

i played my first ibanez back in 1990. i had been playing for about a year and was ready to move up to the next step guitar-wise. i had a hm strat (which was a nice little guitar), but wanted a really nice guitar. i had to travel a ways to get to a decent music store cause of where i was going to college, but it was worth it cause they had a good selection of guitars i had never played before. there were several charvels and ibanezes that caught my eye. it became obvious soon enough that the ibanez rg565 was the best guitar out of the bunch, it was just super easy to play and the pickups just sounded better. but the rg565 was $100 more than the charvel and would've put me over budget, so i reluctantly settled for the charvel. i was still pretty happy, after all i did get a new guitar. but once i got home, i became more and more unsatisfied with the charvel and my mind kept going back to the rg565. the next day, i called the music store and begged them to take back the charvel. of course they didn't take it back for the original price, but i couldn't stand keeping it for even one more day. i begged my parents for the extra money and zipped back out there to bring home the rg565 the next day. it was definitely the right choice.

throughout my years, i've continued to play a lot of different guitars. i did eventually move away from ibanez for about 4 years and played a gibson les paul (during my zakk wylde phase). it was a great guitar and i still have it. but it definitely wasn't versatile enough when i began to grow as a player. i realized i needed a superstrat for the style i wanted to play in. i tried a lot of guitars out at that time and eventually fell back in with ibanez. back in the mid 90s, they had such a wide and diverse offerings that no matter what your style was, there was an answer. quality was also top notch as most of the line was being made in the fujigen plant. but it seems like they went through a dark period in the late 90s/early 00s where the selection went all to hell. good thing is, it looks like they are making a turnaround as they have a lot of different options again.

Well.......I guess I better sell all mine then. Anybody looking for some Jems

Seriously, I DIDN'T buy and don't play my Jem because Mr. Vai is my idol (which he is) I'd be lying if I said that I wasn't attracted to the Jem in the first place because of him, but I play them because they are the best playing guitars I've ever touched and they do everything I need a guitar to do

Which up until I got my 1st Jem, no guitar I had prior did so.

BTW - Is Ibanex to Ibanez what Squires are to strats and LTD's are to ESP's Tommy??

Typo Jimmy, z is right next to x. You look the part in a weird way, but I couldn't imagine, say Allan Holdsworth with a Jem, or Slash. Some work, some don't.
