Hi guys,
do you know any Ibanez model that sounds and feels like a fender strat?
#2
This is such a terrible response... but why not just buy a strat?
#3
do you want to play metal or something? just them out, ibanez have nice thin necks like strats
Sigs are too hard to think up

^the necks are FAR from strat necks. i hate ibanez necks, while i love strat necks. strat neck has the depth, with not much width and a curvy fretboard. skinny, but easy to grip.

ibanez in comparison, has a very wide flat fretboard, real thin with not much depth in the neck. as an exaggeration, ibanez would be a fat meter-stick, and fender would be a baseball bat.

To answer your question, the AT300 or the SA series should get you a strat-like guitar.

Oh, it's a sad long story. don't ask it. (

the_crimison, no I don't play metal so much.

Seriously, if you aren't playing metal and you want a guitar like a strat, then just get a real one. I've got one and it's great. Maybe get an HSS if you're looking to play some heavier rock.

Well, the afore mentioned series, of which I will also post pics, because I like pics, should get you pretty close. Also, you might wan to consider a hollowbody Ibanez, because thay have slightly fatter necks, which you might find comfortable.

Now, without further ado, the promised pics:

The AT300:



Amazing guitar. If you can afford it, it won't dissappoint you.


The SA2160FM:



The slightly cheaper, but still Prestige alternative to the Andy Timmons model.

The SAS36FM:



One of the non-Prestige SA guitars, which are still very good.

^ Thanks;
How about GSA60? I think it is more popular. Perhaps just because it cheaper?

As a matter of fact, it's not.

I've had a GSA for about seven years now, so I think I know them quite well.

The thing is, if you can afford the guitars I posted about, I wouldn't go for it, seeing as the GSA60 is mainly aimed at beginners. On the other hand, it is still a good guitar.

Like with many low-end Ibanez guitars they cut money on the parts which are easily replaced over time, like the machineheads and pickups and such, while putting more effort and money towards the most important parts, like the neck.

Like I said, I've owned a GSA60 for seven years, own several other guitars, have played litterally hundreds of guitars in a period of years and so I can comfortably say: they may not be the best, but they're not crap either.

I believe the Joe Satriani models have similar necks to the Strat (since Joe prefered 9-9.5 in radius on his guitars and Strats have a 9.5" radius) but I dunno, go try em out and see if you like em, they're a bit expensive though.

Strat with an FR and HSH. That would pretty much fit the bill i guess.
