    I believe from Standard RG to Premium RG, that they are made in Indonesia.

    The Prestiges are made in Japan, the JCustom Build they have now is made in California from what I understand.

    Standard RG's that go for around 700 or so retail or grabbing a used one is the way to go. Very durable and can be a nice little project to swap hardware in and out.

    IL's are a little more pricey, cracking above the 1K mark, Premiums and Presiges can be virtually identical in price.

    Their S Series Prestiges go for like 2600 in my currency.

    I am a big Ibanez fan boy, that all access neck joint is such a big deal for me. I got so used to it that when I started playing some Fender strats it really felt weird.

    Have you tried playing on older Ibanez with the tilt joint?Does it feel much restricted?

    Recently got one of these. Love what i've got out of it so far plus i have it hooked up to my Laney 2 x 12 and it can kick out some serious volume. Think i have it just under 1 at most times.

    I have one of these in dark purple with EMGs in the bridge and neck position in place of the original pickups.

    Does he by any chance play doom metal? If not, what does he play? Here in the Washington DC area, doom metal/stoner rock is very popular in the underground scene. This is where Pentagram and The Obsessed both came from.

    Apparently Orange amps are good for getting that Black Sabbath type sound that the doom metal bands love.

    Very different. An HD-28 really sounds best when driven hard with a flat pick. The CEO-7 is a beast for fingerstyle, it just comes alive, an explosive sound. They are such different applications that I don't think of them as very competitive.

    Sweet. My fingerpicking beast is my Goodall. Not many guitars can top that, but it sounds cool.

    I remember shitting on Fender's a few years ago (maybe it was even this thread or a previous version). Ordered one on Sunday after playing one last Friday for the first time in years.

    Love my strat. I have a Fender Deluxe too. Thats my setup. A couple of pedals- tubescreamer clone and a dynacomp.

    I put some new pickups in my strat a while back. I loved the standard strat pickups but could never get along with the bridge pickup.
