Re: Ibanez 2021 Range

At first I was taken by the RG565 in fluorescent orange but, TBH, now that I've had a chance to let it all settle in the RG631ALF is the most interesting to me.
Seems like a great guitar and a...

Someone in the know please verify these are coming to the US. I see them on sale OS for about $1,100 so I hope it's the same here if they do.

Re: For people who like art auctions and dinosaurs...

I like how Sue is placed outside at AK as if she's coming out of the surrounding trees. It really gives you a sense of her scale and what she might look like coming after prey. (I don't exactly agree...

Re: For people who like art auctions and dinosaurs...

Wow! I wonder how big it is in comparison to Sue. There's a Sue copy outside the Dinosaur ride at Disney's Animal Kingdom and I always stare at it for a while. She was a 28 year old female estimated...

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

I dig the Utopias. I might put them in a guitar. Not a fan of the aesthetics but the sound is great.

I own an AZ242F in tequila sunrise. It needed a tiny bit of work on it when I got it. A neck adjustment really that was solved by unbolting, adjusting the neck, then bolting it down. Not an uncommon...

Ibanez needs to think about the future. As much as I love Steve, Joe, and Paul Gilbert they're getting up there in age. I really like McRocklin too, who wasn't really a top tier endorsement and...

Sfogili jumping ship to Charvel?

I've noticed quite a few vids where Marco is playing Charvels. Is he moving on from Ibanez? Great player and great music.

Re: Are there going to be summer models?

I figured there wouldn't be anything. And I don't know about Indonesia but it seems Japan is being appropriately cautious.

Are there going to be summer models?

Not to sound insensitive. Obviously, health concerns are above all else. I was just curious if anything is coming out this summer. I'm guessing no?

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

Henning is one of my favorite YouTube people. He's whimsical but also calls it like he sees it. His vids are always interesting.

Now that I'm thinking of it.... and no offense to the new endorsed artists....
But why did some of the new lesser known artists get a sig but Ibanez didn't give one to Chris Broderick?

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

I totally agree!
I like guitars on spec, though, but in a lot of cases lately I find the signature guitar leads me to listening to the artist - a kind of reverse on the past. I didn't know Martin...

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

That's shocking! I can't believe VSBL flopped. It's one of my favorite looking Jems.

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

While the Jem is a nice instrument I think a better argument for the above is the RG. I don't even remember seeing a photo of another big musician other than Steve Vai using a Jem. Maybe Adam Levine...

Re: What upgrades can be done to RG550 genesis

I put a set of Evos in my RG20th - pretty much the same as a Genesis.
Since changing the pickups I named it Deevo - a tip of the hat to a former Jemsite member who had the same guitar.
Aside from...

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

I truly suspect the big stupid decal on the fixed Jem doomed it. Release it without the decal and I bet it does way better.

Re: Lightweight guitars

I think if "wood didn't matter" and it was just the strings and the pickups, then you'd be able to throw a Tone Zone and Air Norton in a George Benson and get the same results as an RG.
But I think...

Re: Lightweight guitars

I think, without reviving the tonewood argument, mass DOES play a role in resonance vibration in an instrument. I believe a lower body mass is going to resonate more easily, or probably more accurate...

Re: How We Listen To Music

Great post!
Yep, I like CD's and miss those days, but another measure of convenience - actual physical storage space! Ten years ago I had walls of CD's and DVD's. Now? I have two kids and less space...

Re: Thoughts on the PIA (The new JEM)?

Agreed on the PIA. Do what you want. Like what you like. I disliked PIA from the leaked images but the better images really got me to appreciate it a lot more.
I thought the 30ths were nice too but...
