    Just received my JPMM this morning around 7:00am and I really like the playability of the guitar a lot. I'm really impressed with the trem system and the speed of the neck. The neck pup is really sweet sounding, but I noticed that the D-Soninc is rather "bassy" compared to my other Ibanez...

    So, I've been looking at Schecter for the last coupla years, but always end up buying an Ibanez every time. I've been playin' them for 20 years and Ibanez just rule, but the Hellraisers look, sound and play pretty bad ass for the most part. I say the "most part" because I've played 4 or 5...

    Hi all, What's the heaviest string gauge that'll work well on FR equipped Ibanez guitars? I have an RG Series with extra lights (8's) that sound awesome but never tried anything else. Are some models better than others at handling heavier gauges?
