teh w00t

OK, time to get down to business. I recently bought an Austin strat, and i liked it, it played nice, and looks nice. Thing is, it has developed a stress crack already from 6 days of owning it, maybe 2 hours in total use. Which isnt right, the wiring also has ot be re-done. So, i asked him if i could return it, and he said they dont take things back, but i could exchange it for something else, or for the same guitar whenever they get another one in. Now, i would like to get an Ibanez, and since i had this strat with locking tuners and a trem, i havent been afraid to use it since it didnt go out of tune, and i have now grown to love the magicallnessicity of a trem. I am a little weary of the Ibanez trems though becasue i have heard alot of bad stuff about them.


My choices are limited, i cant order off the net, i live in Canada, and the shop only carries Austin guitar, Ibanez, Mansfield, Switch, and maybe a few other realitvely cheap ones.

I hope to spend under 1000 dollars.


RECOMEND!

thats like 1300 bucks here though...i think..im guesssing, i havent checked it out yet though. The 350DX is 683 bucks with tax. So my guess is the 1570 is twice that price, or more.

Oh, you're in Canada...it's $750 USD, which is $833 Canadian, no tax.

VINDICEDIT:

At most, it will be $800 USD/$889 Canadian...otherwise, either Canada's economy sucks or you're getting ripped off.

If you really liked the feel of a strat their are fat strats with double locking floyd roses. I know you want Ibanez Im just put that out there.

I agree, First Act's pwn, the lead guitarist for Kelly Clarkson plays one.

perhaps, but they had an Ibanez SAS36FM, and they were asking 1139 (with tax and came with a hardshell case)

is the 1570 cheaper than the SA series?, as in less expensive?

Jesus Christ, your store's ripping you off...MAJORLY.

I just looked up the SAS36FM on www.zzounds.com and it's $580 USD/$645 Canadian.

They're nearly doubling the price...

You could order a 1570 online...however, go to that store first, and play one and see how you like it.

Then order it from Musician's Friend to teach those cheap bastards a lesson.

yeah,. but as previously stated, I can't order off the net. My parents wont let me.
Its sucks, and i have no idea why they wont order off the net, it seems pretty safe to me. If i was allowed to order off the net, i would probably by an ESP MH-400 though instead of an Ibanez. Or a Jackson RR guitar of some sort
