    So lately I've been looking into getting a hollow body guitar and since I prefer ebony fretboards, that's been eliminating a lot of options. This, I thought, excluded Ibanez entirely as I know they won't do those. Bad news, I like Ibanez. Then I stumbled upon the George Benson models which are...

    Hi Jem lovers! Does any one know how how to tell if your jem has an ebony fretboard? Is it just a visual thing or can you tell via the serial number? Does it really make that much of a difference? Cheers..

    Lo-Pro Trem Is Squeaking Ever since I bought the RG550 Reissue I've always had a problem with the dryness of the fretboard. I love the way the neck FEELS but it seems I have to constantly condition this thing. I've played many other Rosewoods that have all kept conditioned and felt great, but...
  4. Vendors, Auction & Reseller Talk
    http://www.made-in-china.com/showroom/bobostarxd/product-list/catalog-1.html These look good at first glance. The auction site must be full of them passing as real. I've been looking at Gibsons on the bay. It's a little scary to think I could end up with one of these by accident.

    I'm working out the details for my next custom build and I've decided to branch out and look at different fretboard woods. I've had guitars with maple, rosewood and ebony fretboards. Out of those 3, maple is my favorite but based upon the paint scheme I'm going with, pau ferro appears to be the...

    On other forums (non Ibanez) when someone mentions Ibanez there is always a Jackson owner that has something bad to say about em....why is that?

    I went to Megadeth yesterday in Paradiso Amsterdam. Great show! First time I saw new Megadeth guitarplayer Chris Broderick. I was surprised to see he's an Ibanez player. And what a great guitar he plays! It's a 7 string purple quilted custom with a reverse headstock. Nice! Loved his playing...

    I was just thinking... once upon a time, every guitar I owned was an Ibanez, without exception. I looked at my collection the other day and realised that out of my main 'keeper' guitars, only TWO of them (out of about 6, not including acoustics) were in fact an Ibanez. Lot's of people ask for...

    I never play my RG-Metal cuz I'm tired of Wizard necks. I've always wanted a Les Paul but since I don't like rosewood fretboards it's been very hard for me to come by a model that I actually care for owning. There's a guy here in Italy (he's also a member of this forum) selling this...

    I just sold one of my RG3120's (I have two more) and have some money to spend. Last weekend, I was able to play an RGT320Q and instantly fell in love with it. What a freaking beautiful instrument. I had pretty much decided to use the RG3120 money to partially fund the RGT320Q. Then, I was...

    Just wondering, between the winter NAMM show, the Ibanez website updates, and catalog printing, when is the soonest we can expect to see the new changes to model line up and colors, etc. for 2008? In other words, if I am on the fence about buying a new SZ520QM, how long is it worth waiting...

    ...put some black oil dye on my rosewood fretboard? Has someone done it already? (pics please :)) I love the look of ebony fretboards...will I ruin something? And do you know where I can buy some oil dye in Europe?
  14. Comments to Ibanez
    The one thing I'd really like to see from Ibanez is some new made in Japan Prestige S guitars. The current crop of Korean Prestige S guitars just don't seem to be as awesome as the ones made in Japan around 2000 to 2004. I would like to see a neck thru Prestige S with a lower profile version...

    Well recently I've been scanning Steve Vai's site and I noticed Flo is actually a floral pattern painted white *Feels a big "Duh!" coming from alot of people reading* but I found that interesting because it's made of basswood and he didn't just pick another Jem 7vwh off the wall to play. This...

    How comes ibanez no longer uses ebony for the j-customs and how comes they no longer use this construction style and no longer put this writing on the back of the headstock: i thought that wood construction gave it an extra touch of class and further distinguished it from the prestige line...

    hello: I currently have an SG gothic with EMGs in it. I really like this guitar, but after owning it for like 6 years, I am getting tired of its lack of versatility and feel that it is holding me back. I am really interested in getting an Ibanez again. I used to have an RG220 but I sold it...

    Has anyone here sent their guitar out to change the wood on the fretboard? Rosewood's not my favorite choice for wood, so would like to swap it out for ebony. If anyone's had this done, let me know how it turned out (any horror stories out there?). Also what do the rest of you guys think...
