There is this dude I know that is claiming that Ibanez only manufactures guitars in Japan Korea and the US, when I am positive and I assume many UGers that Ibanez makes some models in Indonesia. I wanted some source of online evidence that Indonesian Ibanezs are true Ibanez not fake guitars.

Can someone help me out?

ibanez does not make guitars in the USA, their best guitars are the prestige series, and those are made in japan.

Ibanez does have a US based custom shop where they make stuff for their sponsored artists

Is that so? Are you telling me that I can just go to any Schecter thread and troll around because I'm not in Russia either?

My Ibanez ADX120 was made in China, my Xiphos in Indonesia, and my S7320 in Korea. All great build quality, the ADX is definantly the lowest, but it isn't necessarily low at all, just out of the bunch I'd say it is.

Actually their top of the line guitars are the J-Custom's. I don't even like Ibanez but saw one about a year ago in friends shop getting set up and its one high quality guitar, spotless from solder joints to finish to craftsmanship. Though from what I hear they are Japanese market only unless you import them.

You CAN play anything with anything....but some guitars sound right for some things, and not for others. Single coils sound retarded for metal, though those who are apeshit about harpsichord probably beg to differ.
