Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

well, part of me getting an ibanez is that katrina's RG120 (a hundred some dollar guitar?) plays better then my jackson (nearly 500 dollar guitar), neck profile, neck joint etc. oh yeah, and the aanj drags me even closer. don't know what i'm going to do without it once i get my universe (or jem). and overall, the lowest action and quality i never thought was possible on and instrument.

p.s. Yay! my hundredth post!

Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

i would have to point out here i have bought about 10 different strats in my time ranging from squiers (older ones) to top line strats and each one was set up pretty close to perfect, i have bought 3 ibanez and the rg2550 was good , the j custom was good and the jem was shocking, could not get a low action without shimming the neck. not knocking ibanez but when i see it said that ibanez play better than most brands i have to dissagree as i am forever seeing people say that it needs a set up and things like that .
ibanez are good guitars yet so are many others and a lot of others need a lot less tweaking to make them so

Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

This thread brings to mind a movie that came out in 1998 called "The Red Violin" with Samuel L. Jackson. Anyone seen that movie?

Plot Outline: A red and perfect violin inspires passion, making its way through three centuries over several owners and countries, eventually ending up at an auction where it may find a new owner...


Some Ibanez Guitars out there are like this to me not because of the money, but the history, feel of them, sound, etc...that's an opinion of course. Good movie at least.

Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

Neck, Bridge , Curves , looks , pure playability. I can't play any other guitars.

Of course I'm talking bout 87' - early 90 models, when they had sick bridges, awsome necks and of course colours. IMO tho...

Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

I play Ibanez because Im used to play Ibanez, everything ells just feels wrong.
Getting an Ibanez in my hands feels like home.

I dont believe that Ibanez makes the best guitars in the world but neither does anyone ells.
Many brands do great guitars, depending on your needs, but are just as good with the bonus of feeling like home. I know how to get what I want out of them.

And they do have the best tremolos in the world and the, in my eyes, most beautiful shape (RG).

I think the reason to what most of us play is all down to what or heros played when we started out. We tend to get similar things, and then we get use to that, and man dont like to break his habits

Re: Why do we use Ibanez?

this post was not only to know why do you all play and like ibanez, it was for a reason.
A local store has a magazine which post the new stuff on the store, cool news, song transcriptions for guitar, bass, keyboard and drums, some nice tips columns and many on sale instruments... i dont know if the web page can be post it, but if i can i´ll post it in the future (its a local store).
anyway they are writing a column where they give the news that they´re the only dealers in my country... that´s right in the whole country and post some of the local and foreing artist that use the ibz brand, so i was asked to be part of this column so i have to send them a short essay and a pic with the guitar that i use. i´ll be posting soon what i wrote to the magazine...
i´m speechless... i just love what you wrote, every body.
