Which do oyu think is better Ibanez guitars or fender guitars?

I think its Ibanez with the best guitars.They got great quality.and look better and play faster.Also I think stronger my friend slammed his Ibanez guitar rgx20 on the floor and its fine just some srcatches and broken stings and it still plays fine.

Ibanez, hands down. The RG1570 is one of the best guitars out there. I've been longing for one forever. Ibanez also makes Steve Vai's guitar, which I played at Guitar Center. It was so light and played like butter.

Fender for me. It's all about preference. If you play metal you're probably not gonna be into Fender.

Jesus, I like 'em both, but I think I prefer Ibanez just for the fact that they look cooler, they both play awesome.

What's wrong with comparing apples and oranges? They're roughly the same shape, size and weight, in addition to which, they both serve the same social purpose. If I were going to compare an apple to anything it'd most likely be an orange.

ps. I prefer apples and Ibanez

They are two different types of fruit, just like Fender and Ibanez are two different types of guitar. I, personally, would never even consider buying an Ibanez but I acknowledge that they make some quality instruments. They're just not my cup of tea.

If I were going to play metal, I'd pick up an Ibanez. But even then, I could get me a HSS or HH Strat and still sound metal. But it wouldn't be quite like an Ibanez. But only from the RG series. That's the only good series Ibanez has. I prefer Fender in general, though... But like everyone said, it depends on what your style is... Just for the record, I think Ibanez basses are way better than their guitars. Fender, on the other hand, makes both good guitars and basses.
#22
This is like comparing an Aston Martin to a GMC truck !

They both serve very different purposes , the tone is insanely different (And subsequently : Sound character in general) The neck/general feel and weight are very different, the styles they cater to are different, what the hell is this !

A metal player will probably say Ibanez unless he's into the "old-tone".

A blues/old-school rocker/clean guitar player will most probably prefer fender's weirdly captivating tone (yes i prefer ibanez but i still love any Fender's tone)


If it's a company comparison, Fender wins by experience, Ibanez wins innovation and "the cool" factor.

I prefer Ibanez, guess what that says about the music i play?
#24
Fender. The maker of the most versatile guitars on earth. Simplicity pwns.
#25
ibanez is cool, but if i could get my hands on a ssh strat i'd be haveing and orgasm

Ibanez for fast heavy stuff.

Fender for cleans and other stuff of that sort.

If I had to chose one to live with the rest of my life, Fender.
#28
They're completely different guitars, why even compare?

But just for the record so it doesn't look like I'm angry at the world, Fender.

Eww fender

ibanez is way better

apples > oranges - more convenient, less maintenance required, more of an instant gratification.

Ibanez i think came in with teh view of taking the things that made Fender the choice for soloists around the world, and making the design more effecient for shredders. They're both good brands, fenders the original and ibanez is the modern variant. that's it. i don't think you can judge either guitar company by looking at their low end offerings as much as i wish we could.

ibanez j-custom > jem > prestige> S series > yo momma > fender.

Fender looks ugly but their tone is totally different. really hard to compare. To me i hate the look of them with that naked headstock and boring wannabe white even tho its like creamy sperm white.

Ibanez > in looks actually and its different sound + Metal/Shred sound or any kind of rock really.

Fender > Well watch jimi hendrix :P
