Today i paid a visit to the local guitar store, and took a look at the new line of Ibanez guitars, I picked one up, and to my surprise, it was the thinnest body i've ever seen. It couldn't have been more than an inch and a half thick, i didn't get to try it out for sound (some jackass metalhead was in the tryout room shredding random shit for like an hour, the bastard), so i was wondering if any of you have tried it, what does it sound like? personally, i like a nice thick body, it felt awkward having the neck heavier than the body. comments?

It's an S, they're not new, they've been around for 10+ years. They're awesome, despite it's thin body, you can get some really heavy tones.

I love my S.

Dimebag is overrated. Sue me.

Okay, that metalhead comment just made me lose all respect that I might have had for you. Plus, why the hell were you looking at Ibanezes, arguably a metal guitar, if you don't like metal? I mean, yeah, they have Artcores and Artists, but they sell mostly metal guitars.

Why not try as much as you can? Its good to have experience with everything you can.

Ibanezes have specs that make them more suitable for metal, such as high-output pickups, very flat fretboards, thin necks, and Floyd-style bridges. I mean, a classic rock dude should look at Ibanez's Artist series or something, as they're meant for that style.

or... he should look at watever he wants.... ever think he might have not gone to buy one?

You know that lavender guitar you got? I almost got the exact same one, used. Didn't like it as much as the Les Paul, just sayin...

That kid was performing a variety of terribly played slayer songs, with the distortion easily on 8, and he was playing so loud you could hear him in the accoustic section (a ways away, and through 2 walls.) so I would say he is a metalhead. And the Ibanez section was right next to the Aerodyne strats i was looking at and i was just checking around.

And I'm a metalhead as well. Secondly, what's wrong with the distortion on 8? It's all personal preference.
