Re: Sustainiac.....meh.

Hard to say, I guess the paint can be dented by the hex tool. If Rich had sold this it'd me marked as B stock LOL.

Unless of course they all come this way?!

It's under the paint so it's a manufacturing defect surely.

If you'd like to have your 2480 to be 22 fret, it can be done in a few minutes with a good hand saw

Re: Sustainiac.....meh.

Are the parts available elsewhere, I mean can you repair your guitar when its out of warranty easily enough? (assuming the owner is very confident with a soldering iron).

The Sustainiac website doesn't give a lot away, in fact its somewhat confusing when in mentions the JS2480:

"Ibanez JS-2480 guitar control cavity photo. Note that the cavity wall at the top of the photo has to be shaved a little to make room for the Sustainiac circuit board. This can be done in a few minutes with a good hand chisel. "

Sustainiac Stealth PRO AUXILLIARY BOARD

Erm... why would the end user have to shave the JS2480 cavity wall with a hand chisel to fit their board, unless this refers to a new design board?

Thanks Sean with that honest advice on the sustainiac, not so common

Dont let me put you off buying one, just be aware the more 'tech' you have in a guitar the more can go wrong I guess huh

Sean777 The circuit boards needed replacing so it’s the Sustainiac not the guitar

Re: Sustainiac.....meh.

I have had several guitars with sustainiacs in them, and have never had a problem. Maybe the problem isn't the sustainiac, but the guitar production at Ibanez.

[QUOTE=Rich;1536359]They're all a little different, all react a little different, all adjust a little


I was gonna say they are like US Presidents.... you never know what your gonna get..... like Muscle Car Orange Trump..... unfortunately.... he is outside of his warranty period....


Yeah they have their own personality for sure..... its a shame they cant offer the JS line in a Sustianiac/Satch Track option..... guess it would be a pain for them.

They're all a little different, all react a little different, all adjust a little different, they're kinda like a British car

Ha! hey Chris, dont let me put you off . They are still great guitars, and yes it would be repaired under warranty.

The Sustainiac can be temperamental.... think of it as dating a supermodel..... looks great, puts a smile on your face, but she's high maintenance


Get the 2480 man you won't regret it!
