Then you look at some of the best instrumental guitarists in the world and they use them. Their artist list is very diverse. I would say it's on par with Gibson, Fender, and PRS. Is it because they sell a lot of budget guitars and their most expensive guitars don't cost as much as a car?


that is true but i guess people prefer other guitars a bit more considering the necks really are a love or hate affair and really it could make or break a sale.

Sorry for the revival but I didn't see the point in starting a new thread for this.

What does UG know about mid eighties Ibanezes? In particular the 1985 AXstar Dexlux tele? The AX60 is the model code.

I found one of these on ebay
http://cgi.ebay.ch/Ibanez-Axstar-De...id=p3286.c0.m14

Anything I should look out for? Whats a good price on one of these? Keep in mind that Switzerland in general is more expensive than the US.

Should I be worried about the trem being worn out?

I'm going to bring this thread up to post my Ibanez Artist ART100. Probably the best guitar you can get for $300. Maybe even 5 or $600.

RG 3EXFM1. Got it as my first guitar after my starter, and it was used at Guitar Center. Pretty much new when I got it though. Sorry for the stock pic.

But this weekend I'm getting an LTD EC-1000 to keep it company though!

Nice mate one of the biggest downfalls I see with these cheap Ibby hardtails is the hardware colour they use. Change it to all black and you'll have something that looks a whole lot meaner. Sorry 'bout the blurry pic oh and I've now got all black screws for the pickup rings.

The new JS model with the humbucker in the bridge and single coil stack in the neck is really cool. I wonder if it will come as a hard tail as an option
