    Hi. Have anyone tried the newer premium models like s1027,rg1027 or the equivalent 6 strings?i think they look really good but i am a little sceptical to buy a indonesia model for 1500 euro..Are those models over priced or are they good value? I read somewhere that say the quality have gone...

    Hi, I was looking at the Andy Timmons signature models because I love his tone. At the same time, I don't see why to pay a lot of extra $ just for a signature model. What Ibanez models would you recommend in terms of playability/mechanical set-up/quality? My plan is only to replace pick-ups...
  3. Tech: Setup, Repairs and Mods
    I want to build another strat, but trying to keep costs down even more than I did last time. I found someone in Australia selling this for $118.00, mahogany with flame maple veneer. As far as I can see it looks ok. What are the chances this is a "proper" piece of mahogany, and not agathis...

    I have gone to the dark side :) Gibson Les Paul Signature T. This guitar is amazing, it has the 60s neck which feels and plays great. The tone, fit and finish and construction is fantastic. I don't know why people knock Gibson, the QC on this one is incredible. Bonus - one piece back!

    I think I want to book end my S5470 Viking Red which will be arriving at the end of the week. I've been looking at 1988+ model years and I didn't pull the trigger on a 1995 "S" last night because I wasn't sure if the quality was on the decline by then. And of course it's now gone. I noticed...

    Does anybody know anything about the behringer ac108. I'm thinking of getting one but not sure. Are they good quality or junk? Thanks

    I got a new RG2550Z. The finish leaves me disappointed, considering I bought it on a sale for >$1000. Was I expecting too much? 1. Some of the frets are a little murky/rusty. 2. The white fretboard edges seem a little chipped in some places near frets, and there are a few black scratches...

    Hi, After some lengthy lurking, I had to sign up to invoke some peer support regarding my RG's quality issues. I purchased RG1527Z Prestige a month or so ago, and all these little discrepancies have been piling up ever since. Firstly, the tremolo bridge. It is clearly installed off to the...

    Ok I made this video basically for this purpose. To sorta prove a point, I have been seeing so many people complaining about quality of indonesian, korean, versus japan etc. Now I am in no way saying that top of the line Ibanez dont have better detail work done to them, but im really kind of...
  10. Ibanez JEM, UV, JS & Other Signature Models
    in quality, tone, craftsmanship etc., it the uv77re better than the uv7bk? because honestly, id rather pay $1200ish for a uv7bk, swirl it (with pickguard on if it works?) if it doesnt theres always ways to fill the wood, reroute to have a back mounted and put the clear guard on) and do the...

    Since there is already a "what I hate about ibanez" thread,I decided to the cheer up the mood with what I like about ibanez... FOR me It is the fact that you can buy a prestige for 1000 bucks and still get the same quality of a prestige that costs about 2000$..that doesnt happen with other...

    Many people in this forum say that ibanez are going down in quality,cheap out etc.I was wondering if there is a difference between a 2008 prestige and 2010 prestige (except for removal of TJC stamps..i just hate that they looked good)
  13. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Hi guys, First real post on this forum but I've reading/lurking for about a year or so, when I started thinking about buying a new Ibanez. I've been stolen my first Ibanez, a 3120, a few years ago, and since then I've always felt the need for another Ibanez! So I finally took the plunge and...
  14. Gear, Equipment, Recording & Off Topic
    Hi! I'm making this post to learn more about a topic I really don't know too much about. I hope other people can find it useful as well. Mainly, I want to know your opinions on which are the the best quality tuning pegs and hard-tailed bridges (all brands included). I'd like to know about the...

    i'm not well versed in the history of ibanez but i wanna know how the level of quality from them has changed over the years. i saw a post from rich saying they reached their peak in 2002. wikipedia says the rg prestige range has been around since 1987? is that true? i didn't think it was. paul...
  16. All Other Guitars (including Prestige)
    Hi everyone, been here reading you for the last two years, recently created an account...and i was wondering. Some of you guys seems to consider the rg1527 is a great guitar, some others apparently believe that it's not quite a good guitar.... I don't really know what to think. I ain't no...
