    Ibanez is some seriously well made, good sounding guitars. My main guitar guy mid 80s was playing A Les Paul shape that he still uses. Played through a Marshall stack.

    Mid 70s "Lawsuit" Ibanezes are still collectors items. In the 70s Ibanez was making copies of Fenders and Gibsons that were higher quality (a fact that "Brand Snobs" of my generation scoff at) and ended up getting sued for it. After CBS bought Fender they started doing stupid shit like 3 bolt neck joints. As for Gibson nearly everyone I've known who had played that vintage of Gibson has had to rewire it, replace pickups, and do something so that it would stay in tune (either change tuners, or pull a Steve Stevens and put a Floyd Rose locking nut on it.

    I'm trying to be more Zen. What is the sound of me not giving a fuck?

    I'm currently working my ass off this summer to hopefully save up for a musicman stingray 4. My squier p bass is good, but an upgrade would be nice.

    You ain't kidding, dude! Overall, this isn't a bad time to buy guitars, since quality is up across the board...it's hard to buy an unredeemably bad guitar these days. I love my Ibanez bass, the double-cut Dumpster Fire is a decent body, but even the rest of my guitar family subsists of "sleeper" Asian imports. My modern(ish) Tele was a custom import for a shop in Nashville that they'd take and spruce up a little before selling; my main acoustic is a Peavey from 2003 or thereabouts, made in Korea, and sounds absolutely awesome after a minor setup; even my Recording King acoustic parlor guitar, which was a scratch-and-dent from Guitar Center, is top-notch. My worst guitar experience thus far has been with an Art & Lutherie (Made by Godin).

    I'm addicted to these Wampler videos. Brian is a huge nerd.
