They look pretty cool, too.

I'm a Planet Waves fan myself; I've had one for years now and despite having been run over by my desk chair a hundred times it's still working fine.

there's definitely a difference there.

If my cables were being run over by hordes of groupies, I wouldn't be spending so much time on this site

That's probably just the build quality difference between brands, not the coil style. In order to come to that conclusion, you would need to do so many different tests.

I don't like Ibanez...
I don't like the fact that most of their guitars are made of basswood...
I don't like their floyds...
I don't like how they look...

Who shares my opinion?

Of course, you're entitled to your own opinion, but they do make more guitars than the RG series.

They're not the pinnacle of originality, but I find most of their guitars offer excellent value for money and basswood is a perfectly fine tone wood.

Someone doesn't play bass. Ibanez should just stop making guitars and stick to making basses, and making those even better than they already are. I mean, I still prefer Fender by FAR but Ibanez is a solid brand for bass.

Then there are the S and JCustom series in Mahogany. Besides, LoPro is the best trem, an opinion.
