How old are you? Just out of interest.

I tried having a conversation with you, but you just kept posting the same paragraph that didn't do anything other than make you look like you'd jammed 'shift-V' on your keyboard down with dribble.

All I did was ask you a question, which you failed several times to answer.

You don't know who I am or what I do outside of this forum, I'm not a juvenile and considering what I do in my spare time and around my education probably elavates me about the average 22 year old. So don't the age card. That's neither here nor there.

Most of the guys on her that are regulare are 26ish to 50. I've been playing since 1994, I think that I have a damn good grasp on these matters

Now I can under stand the not every guitar is for everyone. I personally do not care for Ibanez guitars, but they are not a bad company by any means.
I have owned several Gibson LP studios and they are great guitars with good build quality. Gibson has a habit of diong poor set-ups at the factory, but there build quality is very good.

Most of the "regulars" here are morons and attack peoples opinions and then get the ret of the mods to gang up on people. And usually it happens to posters that have valid points.

I think most of the "regulars'" opinions suck and that's why I joined in the first place.

There is good advice floating around here but it mainly comes from non-moderators.



i have no idea who you are,

but it's hard enough trying to read through this thread, without having to wade through posts like yours.

if you have a problem with how the site is run, perhaps
you should pm a moderator and voice your concerns there.

i consider myself a "regular" and i take offense to all your posts in this thread.

edit 2: i got so turned around i forgot to comment on the actual topic.
I really dont think it makes sense to specifically classify guitars by such strict terms.

dont try to put these creations into a mold, it's limiting for no reason.

It appears that the reason Ibanez Guitars are so popular is primarily a result of the innovative design of their trems and the use of Dimarzio pups.

The pickups in it are worth at least that much, if they are indeed EMG's, its hard to tell from the pictures.

24 frets, pearl bird inlays, and the last 4 frets looked scalloped. I'll check it out this week, hopefully I can take it home with me.

It's a neck through with a sculptured back so that I can actually get to those top frets. Not that I use them a lot but they are fun to have available.
Those are EMG 85 and SA pups. I put EMG's in it because it is a gigging guitar and EMG's rock on stage.

Still, for $150, it can't be that bad.

Superstrats are possibly my favorite style guitars. My Aria Pro II Excel series goes from balls to the wall metal mayhem (courtesy of an Iron Gear Steamhammer in the bridge) to chimey cleans with is subtle neck and middle pups.

Versatility is the name of the game, so great for just picking up and noodling when I don't know what kinda mood im in.

Obviously that is not the case. Most informed guitarists consider late 80s Kramers, Jacksons and Ibanez the best SuperStrats.

There is a reason that Ibanez now dominates the SuperStrat market.

Here's an article that discusses the best SuperStrat designs.

Could be, but if I try it and it plays well, there isn't much harm in buying it.

I think they go for around $400 new, thereabouts anyway, Ibanez S421 price range ish.

If the quality is good I might pick it up.

What should I look at in terms of the Floyd, like, checking for damage and astuff

Alright, anything else to look for? In terms of the knife edges (thats what they're called, right?) and springs?

I would imagine if I pull up too much, or dive too much, then the strings are just going to lose sustain from being so slack.

I wanna go into this being as prepared as possible.

I really like my Kramer Focus 3000 (only the pickups are to weak for my tastes) and the Kramer Pacer(?) that my guitar teacher owns. The necks aren't too thin or too thick. They feel buttery smooth to play, and are quite comfortable to play. I can see why they were big in the 1980s.

Are super strats like regular strats, but with laser beams and stuff?


Or it can be like my superstrat. It can be a multi-millionaire who is trained in martial arts and fights crime at night in a batsuit.

Are you both morons?

I just spent 2 ****ing pages arguing with you both that a guitar didn't have to be identical to Eddies or have a trem to be a Super Strat.

very nice aria- i saw it before in another thread (I think). not to derail the thread too much (LOL that ship's already sailed), but how's the steam hammer? do you just have the stock neck and middle pickups?

I used to use an Ibanez RG but I eventually concluded that the necks were just a bit too thin for my tastes and I changed to a Jackson SL3. The Jackson is excellent, though for the price, the setup from the factory was absolutely woeful. I prefer an H-H design so I may change it to a different Soloist in the future. I'm tempted with the Jackson SL2Q but I'd be giving up a Japanese Soloist for a one that's now made in Korea. Overall, the Jackson Soloist is my favourite superstrat.

I'd love to say the PRS SE Torero as I really like PRS guitars but for me, the Torero comes with too many flaws.

1) No inlays. I really don't like having no inlays, especially when PRS inlays are so good.
2) EMG pickups. I REALLY prefer passives.
3) No option of a quilted maple top instead of flame.
4) The feel of the neck isn't quite as good as my Jackson, though I suppose I'd get used to that.

If they fixed the first three, I'd consider a Torero instead of a Soloist but for now, I'll stick with Jackson.

I like the Torreo too but I think you're right to prefer the Jackson.

Though mainly because I found the CE24 would do all the things the Torreo can do, but is MIA and the PRS trems are awesome.

like said, make sure the guitar's bridge can be balanced with use.
that the guitar is basically buzz free thru the amp.
check intonation and have a look that the truss rod nut isnt stripped.

Yes, the late 80s Kramer necks are my favorites, Not quite as thick as my Tele necks and not too thin like Ibanez necks.

yep. that the bridge is smooth with use, that the guitar can hold a tune with use.

as for the locking nut?
that the screws at the nut (or bridge) aren't stripped.

and if you fret the guitar between the 2nd-3rd frets that the string doesn't rest on the 1st fret.

see if he has the allen wrenches he uses on the guitar?

and ask if he has an amp that you can try it on.
if not, then bring one if you can.

things like that.
