I've wanted an Ibanez JS for over 20 years. I know a lot of guys talk smack about this guitar on the boards and scoff at it (I've seen some people say it's "not even an entry level guitar," but I'm probably not on the level of most of you and it suits me fine) Stuff kept coming up and I never had the money. (Plus I put the guitar down for 18 years, that took away the priority to get one) Anyway, I finally did some horse trading and got one on ebay for a good price. Had to work til 10pm tonight, and just took delivery right before I went to work, so I had to wait all day to mess with it. Got home, tuned it up, put my custom knobs and such on it, and started playing. I love it. It plays nice, I like the action, and the sound is much more powerful, rich, and strong than my old guitar... plus there's a lot less noise. I guess the good thing is that my old one was so noisy I had to do everything I could to keep it clean, I sound MUCH cleaner on the Ibanez now!
I'm stoked. I stayed up way too late playing it, and also typing this, but I'm excited.
Anyway, I've got my girls for spring break from Saturday through next weekend, so I probably won't have time, but later I'll shoot some stills of the guitar and post here. Photography is part of what I do professionally, so some quick snapshots aren't going to cut it!
But congrats man.
