Mid Range to High End Ibanez Guitars I Would Buy Myself

Updated on March 6, 2010

Mid Range to High End Ibanez Guitars I Would Buy

I Love Ibanez guitars and I think they have a great look and feel to the way they play. The Ibanez RG Custom made guitar I had made for me I would trade for none other! But that wouldn't stop me from buying other Ibanez guitars if they were worth it. As I have said in my other articles if you are looking for a first time guitar? These would not be the first choices you are looking for unless you want a Awesome guitar that will not do you wrong. Even then there are still many things to look over before buying even these guitars. You can read what to look for on my "Things to Look for When Buying a Guitar article". Buying a guitar only for its looks or age is the wrong thing to be doing.

I have chosen these guitars for the way they look, play, and sound. From string action to the pickups that are in them. There is nothing like playing on a decent to awesome guitar! Even a guitar that has a nice tremolo system in it makes a big difference. But there are things to look for when buying a guitar that has a tremolo system in in it. You can also find out about tremolo systems in my article I mention above.

Now I do not usually pick guitars myself of signature series if they look like a dead ringer of what someone else has already used on stage. Its like me trying to use a guitar with stripes that Eddie Van Halen used. Those stripes are not me. I try to find a guitar that is more me when I buy one. But there are a couple guitars I really like no matter and one is the Jem by Steve Vai. I would prefer it with a solid body and not the hole cut though the body though.

The pickups in the Jem77V are the same arrangement as what is in my Ibanez. My pickups are not the same as they were in the original model though when I purchased my Ibanez RG. Allot of work was done on my guitar to make it what it was today. Let put it this way? The only thing that is original with my guitar is the neck itself, the body, the mirror plate, and the black plates on the back accept the middle back plate that is now a metallic American Flag that I made custom myself with a sticker that has held up perfectly for over 8 years now. My guitar was completely chromed out and a much cheaper model. I basically bought it for the body and the mirrored plate on the front. Because a Guitar Lutheran friend of mine said he could re do the entire guitar for me. With a still kinda slivering chrome look that would make it look better and be a much better guitar. Including changing the pickups and bringing the bridge lower making the string feel like butter on the neck. And oh how it is PERFECTION! So the Low TRS Full Tremolo System it was! Tuning Keys and all to match it.

Here are a few that I would get including my own guitar I own now as the first. I wouldn't trade it in for anything. It is me!
