I have a big problem with the Ibanez JEM 7V I bought less than one year ago.
While I needed to use some sustained notes for a solo around the 15th and 17th fret on my G string a week ago, I noticed a weird noise ! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZAmkwapdABY
So I removed my ME-70 and plugged my guitar directly to my mesa boogie road king head. Same noise !
So I took my little VT30 to see if the amp was involved, but exactly the same noise
I went back to the dealer's store (really professional one) to check if the other guitars were doing it, and some of the good ones (LAG, gibson etc...) were doing it but really less obviously so it's acceptable. I checked on the internet and some others have the same issue... http://music.stackexchange.com/questions/4307/strange-guitar-warble-sound
2 month ago I went to a luthier's workshop, and after checking the radius, the frets, the bridge, the floyd rose tremolo, moving down the pickups to avoid an unwanted induction problem, he decided to call the french ibanez service to know why this is happening because obviously there is no unwanted contact with a fret, and no electrical issue.
Finally the dealer and I decided to call the Ibanez Salesman to return the guitar to their workshop.
After a huge time spent (2 months) in the french workshop working for the ibanez after sales service, my JEM 7V finally comes back to me as bas as it was before so I'm really pissed off ! (and so is the dealer)
The Ibanez Salesman say they can't do anything more but sending a new JEM 7V to me to see if the sound buzz is less obvious.
They sent the new one and it has exactly the same problem but it's a bit less obvious...
I forgot to mention that instead of the ME-70 i now have a GT-100 so as the bad sound is there whatever the multieffects unit is, it's definitely coming from the guitar...
How can Ibanez cheat on the JEM7V quality as Steve gave his name to promote their guitars ?
