my apologies if this is the wrong forum, but it seemed like the best.

I have an Ibanez starter guitar and it feels just as good as most "better" guitars. ive been using my drummer's brother's marshall half stack.

I was wondering if any-one has ever had any problems when using an ibanez and a marshall amp? i dont want to get too comfortable and mabey buy the amp unless i know it will be completely fine. any input would be great.

I'd say a good 70-90% of the tone comes from the amp, the rest from the guitar, pickups, wood quality, and player style. So you could plug in a Squire into a Marshall and then and an American Strat and it would be comparable (though the american would be better).

And if you're kind of new, you might not be able to tell the difference between good and bad guitars yet, but cheaper guitars are essentially designed so that their more expensive counterparts are better.

- Crappy Strat Copy (Redecorated, looks snazzy)
- Ibanez Acoustic/Electric Guitar

They all work, but you have to be specific. There are a million different variations of each Ibanez guitars and marshall amps.
#7
Use what ever set up sounds good, it does´nt matter what guitar or amp combination you use as long as you like it.
#8
it'll be fine, but what marshall is it?

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

It'll work. Just out of interest, what model of Marshall is it?

joe satriani is using marshall and ibanez at the moment....

doesn`t matter what amp you plug into to make a noise, but if you find 1 amp that gives you the holy grail of tone you are lookiing for go for it, if you are still unsure take your guitar to a big store and play every amp in your budget find one with the sound you`re after and the features you want and buy it.

he used Marshall for the Chickenfoot tour.

Paul Gilbert also uses Ibanez and Marshall.

the bottom line is that any guitar will work with any amp unless there's just something wrong with the amp or the guitar.

I'd say 90% of your tone comes from your fingers.

Yep, common misconception. Technique, not tone, is in the fingers. Tone is all in your rig, but your overall sound is a combination of your technique and tone.

There's never going to be problems between amps and guitars...

Marshalls are some of the best amps ever, I never had one nor have I used one. Haha (I'm a Vox/Orange guy)
Ibanez are some of the.... in some case nicest guitars....in other cases Ibanez pick-ups in their own instruments. Only things I would recommend are the RG & SR series...

I have a Ibanez starter bass and it's pretty decent for the past 4 years...

Is that what happened to the JSX50? I heard about it a while ago but it just seemed to disappear from existence. It's not even on Peavey's site anymore.

not sure, Joe commented on it @ talk to Joe(t2j) but it seems that his post has been deleted, i remember him saying he used the jsx50 for the chickenfoot record, but the jvm suited what he wanted live tonally, he has also spent alot of time at the marshall factory in milton keynes in the few days leading up to the london gig (where i took that pic)

found it....

... checking in after not checking in for a while.... Chad's condition is looking brighter and we are looking forward to the last two festival shows of this tour... Thanks to all of you, Chickenfoot continues to rock the charts and radio waves. The shows have been fantastic, and crazy, and always fun, as you can see from the clips. We were filmed in Montreux and hope to release it at some point. ...Yes, I did switch back to playing Marshall Amps, nothing to do with business, just an artistic decision. A full explanation will follow when the time right... Right now, in Stockholm, it's raining and I've got two days off in this beautiful city... Joe
