    I was reminded of this when @fattboyzz mentioned the inf3 pickup in my tele.
    A local sold it to me because he didn't like the pickups. It's in decent shape for $150
    The trem when properly adjusted by myself works brilliant.
    It's the edge zero for those familiar. Claw springs are adjustable from back.

    I've only owned a few Ibanez guitars but they all seem higher quality. Compared to similar priced stuff.
    Let's see other people are hiding Ibanez wise in with all them squiers 20210721_190349.jpg 20210721_190343.jpg 20210721_182455.jpg 20210721_190357.jpg 20210721_190429.jpg

    This RG320R was a Gr8 player. Fast Wizard 3 24 jumbo fret neck . It had the Edge Zero Floyd style system on it and worked well. It held tune good and was easily brought back in tune by the fine tuners on the trem when needed.
    It had Dimarzio pickups in it and they sounded very good . It was pretty much spotless and played very easy with a nice low action.

    The only downside was that it was heavier than I liked at 8+ lbs. Anything much over 7lbs dont get played much cause my shoulder & neck cant deal with the weight. I like em at 7 or below.
    I sold it last summer to get an MP15 amp and dont regret it one bit .

    I think what I had before was a rg320dxqm . It wasn't heavy. It was some years ago. But I think it had quantum pickups and the same edge zero . Played nice sounded bla. This one plays better than. It sounds but it's also mahogany so maybe muddy.
    I had a ash rg too. That one was heavy

    2006 AS73 semihollowbody. They now use substitute woods for the veneer maple body, mahogany neck, and rosewood fretboard that I have.

    They moved to more sustainable and affordable linden body, nyatoh neck , and walnut fretboard at this price.

    You just woke a sleeping giant. :D
    My favorite Guitars are Ibanez.
    And I have many, most of them are 1980's and made in Japan, in fact my recent purchase, a 1985 Ibanez Pro Line 1440 is on the UPS truck as I write this memo, and It's coming today. Between 12:30 and 3:30.
    :D:D:D.

    My first electric guitar was an Ibanez, purchased in a department store in Germany in about 1965. It was the only Fender copy guitar that I could afford at the time. I wish I had pictures of it. I kept it through college and then one of my roommates ended up with it in the early 1970s.

    The only one I've had since is the MIK first year RG-120, which came as part of a package deal with a MIK Squier E7 HST model that was the target of my purchase. A small amp was part of the deal too. I think the RG-120 was a Guitar Center model.

    @Powerstroke , If I were you, I'd start looking at the 1980s Ibanez Roadstar series made in Japan. Great guitars. And some are very affordable also. The playability is insane and they sound amazing too. There out there. Take my advice, you won't regret it

    The Roadster series models are even older than the Roadstar series. The spelling was different, not sure why.

    Just got this one a week or so ago. AM93ME (Macassar Ebony top & back) Lovely to play, smaller than a 335 so it fits me perfectly. I have 4 other artcores and they are all stellar. This one had sat in the box for over a year (I think) the frets were so corroded. it took a lot of scrubbing with steel wool, fret eraser (Some one here suggested them in another post and they work great) and the dunlop cloths. the fret board is still a little squeaky when I bend but that will get better as I play it more.



    I didn't realize they made a semi hollow talman. I'm off to check them out (online of course)

    A 1985 S/S/S Roadstar is one of the guitars on my 'Never Should Have Sold It' list.

    Roadstars have some of the best necks ever bolted to a body, IMHO.

    I had this one for a few days before I spotted the twist in neck.
    Such a beautiful guitar and felt amazing. The ash body had the weight I prefer. 20210417_142731.jpg 20210417_140144.jpg 20210417_142548.jpg 20210417_142702.jpg 20210417_140131.jpg

    I have a 7 string gio. I was skeptical but im impressed. They are 199 new.
    Someone played the strings off this one for a year and pawned it off so I got it for $140.
