I know that Rich Harris has tons of Ibanez parts. but have you guys ever sourced Ibanez parts from any other dealer?
Opinions on Thomann? (30 euro shipping to USA)

(btw, i love IbanezRules!)

Most local dealers will be able to supply spare parts. The advantage with Ibanez rules is that Rich actually knows the difference between an Edge Pro and a Lo Pro Edge and so on.

Buying parts from a dealer who has some knowledge may be dangerous as they can think they know the answer and then you get delays and refunds and bad feelings all round.

Remember Rich knows what is what, what part number that is, and whether he has it in stock right now...

Thomann is a big outfit, they actually stock parts. It a fallacy that most dealers have parts, about 1% will actually stock a few basic parts, there are really only 5 dealers in the US that stock a relative selection, nobody else stock 750 sku's.

You can buy anything from Hoshino but they charge list, any discount you need to go thru a dealer. Cheap stuff, doesn't matter.

Just out of curiosity, what were you after?
