I mean honestly, I am willing to bet that 80% of all UG'ers are ****ing obsessed with these guitars. What is so great about them?? I have played many and they dont feel very special to me. I can think of dozens of more better choices than Ibanez.

It seems that in ALL of the " What new guitar" threads, most people simply respond with "get an Ibanez". What is the point of making these threads? You know that everybody is going to say to buy an Ibanez. Save you time!

Ibanez is scoring big because all of you ****ers are buying into there stupid gimmicks. They are probably laughing at you and counting their fortune right now. For example, the "wizard necks". They have several versoins of these necks, all of which claim to be faster than regular guitar necks. People on this site actually believe these necks will make you play faster. That is complete bullshit. An Ibanez wizard neck wont make you play any faster than a 50 dollar First Act from walmart.

And the cleans on these guitars are horrible. It makes my ears bleed just thinking about it. Sure, these guitars can sound great with a shitload of distortion and effects, but so can any guitar.

And what really pisses me off is people who recommend Ibanez guitars for every music type. Just a few days ago, some faggot told some person to buy an Ibanez prestige when he said his favorite bands were Pink Floyd, Led Zeppilen, and Eric Clapton. I mean come on, thats like recommending a Taylor accoustic to play Children of Bodom.

I have a ton more to say, but I dont feel like typing.

I am going to get flamed for this but hey, I dont care, and I think a few people will agree with me.

Let the flaming begin!

Most of the forums I've been on people have been going on about how great les pauls are. I tried an Epiphone and I wasn't impressed, whats your opinion on Les Pauls?

I played an ibanez solidbody (i don't know what it's called) yesterday and i didn't like it very much at all. But then i picked up an ibanez hollowbody (artcore?) and i enjoyed that one. I guess that's just my personal preference.
#9
Possibly because they do help you play faster? You're an idiot if you think that you can play the same on a guitar like yours, as on a high-end Ibanez. And if you know what you're doing the cleans sound great.
#10
meh ibanez never did it for me

doesn't mean i need to make a thread about it.

But i think when you say a wizard neck is faster than a first act from walmart, i think you're wrong. A first act from walmart probably has shit action and the neck could be too wide to move fast. Whereas, on a wizard neck, it is slightly thinner than most necks, so moving your fingers is easier, hence more speed.

Every Ibanez I've played so far I've liked quite a bit. It's just personal preference really.

#19
Lol i can agree with you to a point, cause i liked the taylor acoustic to a children of bodom fan remark lol

but personaly i only like the iceman but i havent played a single ibanez. i think cause they offer decent beginer guitars that a lot of ppl grow up on them

plus a lot and i mean a ton of UGers when asking for a suggestion are saying heavey metal and hard rock for a low price and Ibanez offers that

i hate fenders (actually teles are okay...). i haven't played many ibanez's but i sure like the artcore hollowbody. my friends dad has a solidbody and the clean isn't great but if you mix the levels right it sounds fine. i like epiphone.

it's all preference. there are a lot of young ppl on UG. since they're into guitar a lot are listening to the modern version of heavy metal. the ibanez is an all around kinda guitar for that stuff. plus steve via kinda blew ibanez up. like was said earlier, they don't do it for me either. i'm on a treck for a strat now. it is a shame though, a lot of ibanez players will never know what it's like to wrap your hands around a really good strat or paul.

+1 but i own 4 ibanez's. but dude just cuz you dont like Ibanez's doesnt mean theyre all that bad. i've played Fenders, Gibsons, Jacksons AND Ibanez's that sucked. but the guitars from Ibanez and Fender i have pwn (minus the GAX75 if it were stock, but its not). and i've played awesome Gibsons and Jacksons, but Gibson charges you and arm and a leg for for a good playing guitar. if im paying 2,000 USD for a guitar, it better have the best FR, thinnest neck, and pickups that i won't swap. since Ibanez has a $750 guitar with all but the pickups, i'll get that. it really comes down to preferance. so just deal with it.

Because Gibson charges ridiculous prices for their guitars, and Ibanez can do quite a bit.

What Ibanez did you play, if I may be so bold?

1. Disagree. That statistic is incorrect.
2. Disagree. Perhaps there are a lot of people who recommend other brands as well, but you just don't want to see them.
3. Agree. The Wizard necks do play nicely. They don't make you play faster though.
4. Agree. But it's just the shitty pickups. Swap them and then try playing it.
5. Disagree/Agree. Well, technically, any guitar can do any genre. However, they don't work for everything.
6. No one cares.

In summation, this is pretty much a pointless thread.

i hope that wasn't aimed at me

i don't have a problem with ibanez. in fact, they do make some good guitars. I just prefer other guitars. brands really don't matter to me. I brought my epiphone firebird over a gibby firebird because i just didn't like the gibby. Like you said, it's all preferance

I played a 50 'sgibson gold top les paul with those little pick up as a kid.
It sounds sweet as hell and it felt sweet as hell.
But the damn thing wouldn't stay in tune for the love of god.
And hell no my dad wasn't going drill holes or replace original tunners.
He made a crap load of money selling it as a beauty queen dust collecter.

I have had plenty of guitar, all different brands.
Personally it dosn't matter to me what brand.
I get stupid picky when purchasing a guitar.
I just happen to have an ibanez in my colletion that i like at the moment.
I wanna, wanna another les pual, but damn...$2500

I went to guitar center earlier this week, and grabbed an ibanez prestige off the wall expecting the neck to feel significantly thinner and more comfortable to me due to my small hands, and I must say that I didn't really notice much, or any, difference in size compared to say a ltd or even my strat, though I only messed with it for about 15 minutes. Ibanez is very good about putting out quality instruments at affordable prices, but I think people who believe not having that the 1 or 2 mm difference in neck thickness of the wizard necks is what is keeping them from playing 30 nps instead of the 10-15 they are doing now. They get hyped up here at UG. I personally lost respect for ibanez, though they are very cool, and now I'm more interested in schecter and gibsons.

Good les pauls are not that frequent now. Quality control issues with Gibson . meanwhile the prestige Ibanez's quality control is quite consistent and very well. In all honesty my 3 japanese ibanezes play better than my 2 custom shop gibsons(Ie stayed in tune 99.9%, zero fret wear, properly setup from the FACTORY.

OH NOES! GUITAR MAKES THE GENERE !!!!!11

get bent people(not just to you but to everyone saying its just for metal). An electric guitar can play any genre. Its the player that matters. In all honesty i play, jazz, country, metal, classic rock, blue grass, blues on my ibanezes. What makes your sound is the rest of your set up and more importantly YOUR PLAYING.

Maybe that's because 80% of UG prefers the feel of Ibanez. Judging guitars is a subjective thing. Who really cares..they're not making you buy one or anything. And just for the record, I don't own an Ibanez, so I'm not some fanboy.
