ART series + Active pickups = Why?!
OK so I've been GASing for a LP-shaped guitar, so I went to see what Ibanez has to offer. I found many good-looking guitars from the ART series, but one question arised: why active pickups in almost all of them (except the very low-end models and the ART100, correct me if I'm wrong), especially the better ones?? I know a lot of people like the LP + active pickups combination, but I think Ibanez should have more ART guitars with passive electronics.
And, is it me or can the fretboard binding be barely seen?
Just wanted to see if some people think the same way.
P.D.: Why didn't you put headstock binding in the new affordable RGA7??! I mean, body binding + neck binding looks great, but why not bind all the guitar now that almost all of the guitar has binding?
