Hey all.
Just making the point here.
Cheap priced Ibanez SUCK.
Well the guitar is a great piece of workmanship BUT.
The electronics are **** ass cheap and give terrible amounts of noise.
My same price range Epiphone les paul standard (price class 300-400) drops half the noise and is even a beter piece of workmanship.
Just wanted to share this with you.

I bought a cheap Ibanez acoustic and the ****ing Chinese glued the damn bridge an inch to far back. Intonation was complete shit past the 4th fret. I only played a few chords before I bought it.

I learned my lesson.

You get what you pay for....and yes acoustic Ibanezs are garbage.

How much is cheap? I got a 300 dollar ibanez and it plays great, it works just fine and it for it's price it works great, not as good as a 1000 dollar guitar but it doesn't suck in any way. And my Ibanez acoustic was 300 as well and It's just fine, I think you all just have a bad case of bad luck..... Yeah cheap guitars suck

The guitar is well made.
There should be a mark on the box before you buy it: know that you are goint to get extra money for proper hardware.
Next time I'll buy a Jem.

You shouldn't think that it goes that way.
Say you've bought some pickups for 80 dollars each.
A factory would need to pay just 20 dollars each.
It is true that you actually buy the brand.
I don't know if you're familiar with chapman guitars.
They offer great quality for about 600 dollars.
If it wouldn't be named chapman but gibson it would cost 2000 dollars.

How bout.... don't buy cheap guitars unless you know what you're doing?

I know a lot of people who woulda been better off had they just kept the money they had and bought a mid-high range guitar instead of their PoS
