If they play as good as the EB/MM models.. then they should play amazing.

One thing I noticed though.. the EB/MM has smaller frets compared to the Ibanez with jumbos. Why did he change?

I personally don't mind small or big frets, or scale length, bolt on, set neck, neck thru, etc. etc. :D

But, from all the people I have known that had them they say that they play amazing.

Depends on whether you can live with the graphic or not, really, IMO.

I have a P4 that was given to me for next to nothing by the Ibanez importers here in Australia. I used it on my last solo album and it's quite a smooth guitar feel-wise and sound-wise. There are a few things I would change about it, but as it is you can use it for quite a few diufferent sounds. It doesn't all have to be about sounding like DT.

I played the p4 once back in the day when he was still with Ibanez, I just remember setting it back down thinking "I would like to own one some day" They are good but not astonishingly great IMHO. I say get a EBMM JPM...those guitars are absolutly amazing...the are just about as good as my jem

I own a JPM100P4 and in my oppinion it's a great guitar both playing and graphic wise (the camouflage isn't as "bad" as the other ones). The clean "in between" sound (the center two coils of both pick-ups engaged) is really unique and may put some people off but I like it. When distorted the neck humbucker is extremly clear and so is the bridge humbucker. I suggest you do what i did, spend a day in a guitar store filled with Ibanez guitars and walk away with the one you like best. :wink:

You might even want to try other guitars...Ibanez is good, but not the only company out there. If you are in the market for a great guitar I would reccomend a Music Man guitar....or a parker or maybe even a Carvin...they are great guitars. Don't have an opinion about any guitar until you play it

Yeah Junbughunter is certainly right in saying check out other stuff.

No matter what other people tell you, o what cr*p you read in magazines, only you can judge whether or not you're buying the right guitar. You know what feels good, sounds good, and plays good for you.

Check out anything in the same kind of price range/specification, so look at good quality Strats, check out PRS, EB/MM, Other Ibanez guitars, Jackson..........there's plenty out there.

Oh, anybody any opinions on Maverick? i wanna try one but haven't had the opportunity yet.

JPM is kinda cool............what pickups does it have?

CARVIN makes beautifil guitars. I just got one a few months ago and I'm blown away by the feel of the guitar. It plays like a dream.

i heard that a nice thing about JPM's is that the volume knob is out of the way of your picking hand, and that's good for people who constantly hit the volume knob on a guitar where it's really close to the bridge.
