i would have thought a high-end Ibanez guitar would NOT be made out of basswood, because genrally speaking all the guitars ive ever tried made from basswood have sounded shit, so is it just me? why does the Ibanez Jems body made from basswood?

Well, sound is subjective. What guitars did you try out of basswood? If you picked up low quality guitars made out of basswood, it could have just been setted up poorly. Also note, most JEM's are actually made out of Alder.

Whats wrong with basswood? apart from being a soft wood, its brilliant.

Then, about two minutes later of just plowing, I can feel it coming. She's still moaning and rolling back, and then I pull out. I grab her by her hair, pull her head up, and yell out:
"BOOM, HEADSHOT!"
