Ibanez
« on: December 13, 2010, 01:48:12 PM »
While I'm not to sure about some of the newer Ibanez acoustics, I've had my peformance series guitar for eight years now.  Other than the bridge is slightly lifting (mostly because of some neglect before I knew about humidty control), its been a great guitar.  I use Cleartones on it and its worth the price of $16 a set of strings.  Mine is a dreadnaught in Ebony.  Mine was the first version of the performance series because it has a Martin type headstock and no logo other than Ibanez.

My daughter has an Ibanez Acoustic. Not sure of the model. I'll have to take a look next time I go by to see her.

Other than maybe the bottom of the barrel ibanez acoustic, every model I've played even the "exotic" wood models all seem to be clear and loud.  Great action, good frets, and easy to play.  Haven't plugged any electronic ones in yet, but I've never had a need for one.

I purchased an Ibanez Concord acoustic back in 1971, making it 40 years old this year. Paid $150 w/case new back then in Montreal. Light maple body, rosewood fretboard, still has an incredible rich sound....Had a fellow tell me his Martin doesn't sound as good...made me smile.

those old ibanez's were incredible copies of famous american guitars.  That one should be a real keeper!

I would say Ibanez is great for any player on a budget.  I wouldn't recommend buying one on line unless you plan on having a guitar tech look over it when you got it.  I've played a couple lower budget Ibanez's and one or two had a few sharp fret edges...

I keep one of these fret end files and a 3M superfine sanding sponge for that purpose.

I wouldn't dare do my own fretwork.  I'd be afraid I'd hack them up or damage the fretboard.
