Hmmm Well you have a point Although I'm not sure how valid it seems to me. PRS and Gibson have covers as well as most high end guitars. I've done some traveling with my stuff (Cal To Texas and betwixt ) and didn't need to adjust the truss rod at all?? The could have at the VERY least cleaned the hole out. Mine look like someone dug it out with a shovel.Rich said:Because a truss cover is better as case candy than anything functional. Working guitars need constant adjustment as they go from warm to cool to dry to wet environs. A truss cover is just a nuisance that's in the way.
That's a really clean rout. Perhaps Ibanez has cleaned them up a bit.The two I have look very rough and have white powder and finish blemishes. My favorite look is the two USRG30 I have with NO truss rod adjustment point the head looks very clean.Rich said:What *spin*,?! Keep the covers, I'll take them just as they are. [marketting and the design team decide what models they want to be perceived as "real players"]
Looks just horrid doesn't it?!
I think PRS does that on some of their $6-8000 guitars. :roll:jemsite said:Also, noone says they need to put a cheap plastic cover on. They could put a nice, inlayed wood cover and they would if they had "superb attention do detail".
I have a few custom made JEM/UV inlayed headstock covers and the inlay work is AMAZING something beyond what Ibanez is capable of thinking about nevermind producing... glen
