I never click on links posted by shady characters!
I play really well on most Ibanez guitars. For some reason their necks always seem to work well for my short fingers. But it seems like ya gottsta spend a lot of extra $$ to get the really good ones.
Cutting edge technology and design, particularly the banana shaped control plate. Not sure how we ever lived without that.
Early G&L models:
Looks like a G&L
Well ... We'll See .. The UK dealers have the Josh Smith listed at £2400 and the regular AZS models at £1900 .. probably going to 100-200 once they're no longer new releases.
I not sold on the Josh Smith I must admit, which to me only seems interesting if you're a huge fan or fond of chunky V-shaped necks. I'd much prefer a Fender CS, which on the used market can be had a a lot less.
But the non-signature ones are sexy ... 12" radius, stainless steel frets, contours on the body and the neck heel and extra wiring making it a faux double humbucker guitar if need be. Pretty cool.
I don’t really like the curved control plate, but other than that I don’t see the problem. I’ve never picked up any Ibanez from any price point and thought “man, this is garbage.” I can’t say the same for others. If I could find an Ibanez that didn’t have the paper thin neck, I’d definitely own one. That’s just a preference though, they make great guitars.
Also, I don’t understand the thread. Ibanez and everyone else have been making Tele copies since there were Teles.
Looks good to me.
The Josh Smith model is supposed to have a vintage chunky V neck, but it's also the most expensive.
What one plays on the instrument should be more interesting than the relative ascetics of the instrument.
I think the Ibanez headstock is an improvement on the Fender tele headstock.
There's always the Talman.
I had a Talman just like that in a kind of dark Sherwood green with rosewood. Nice playing guitar but the sound left me cold.
I think the Duncans would make a huge difference in either model.
I think with a little work I could get it to look more like this...
They don't make the MIJ versions of those anymore and they're pretty rare on the used marked .. Until the announcement of these new models I was kicking myself for not picking up a MIJ talman when they where in the stores .. Priced like a am std tele .. tho not in banana yellow
Not just three
Precision, Performance, and Playability.................................................price
There are so many versions of Fenders and Gibsons and every cool player modification eventually becomes a signature model.
No other guitar manufacturer in history has copied the T-style, S - style, LP style, SG style or ES styles?
Hold the front page!
I agree, from an aesthetic perspective: it should follow the curve of the body.
The unmatched curves make the plate look like an afterthought.
Some G&Ls and some Reverends are like this. The control plates or pickguards look out of place.
You can't get a Fender with SS frets below CS Masterbuilt, so if that's a spec you want then they're priced well. I think they're going after Suhr at this level and with these designs.
