my first ibanez was a usrg30 . I had been playing for a little over 2 years and had already had a number of guitars that i had bought and sold.

I bought it for 550 shipped in case. It was more of a players condition ax. It has a few dings and dents, i was unhappy at the fact that these wheren't described in the listing (it wasn't on they bay either) . The neck was unlike anything i had played, it was thin and flat, i thought it a little strang coming from an epiphone nighthawk. Anyways the guitar was saved by it being so beautiful. I am glad it was, i have played that guitar so much i have worn through the finish on the bottom part of the neck all the way down and worn through majority of the side of the heel.

the frets aren't very worn either . 6105 frets are the shit .
Anyways, once i get some money i am going to have the neck re-finished and go ahead and have a re-fret will probably cost what i paid for the guitar in the first place but, my usrg30 is priceless to me .

i got my first ibanez about 2 weeks ago. Its a JEM7VWH and i havent put it down since. EASLILY the best guitar i have ever played. Very inspirational and i would recommend ibanez to anyone in a second.

my first ibanez was an old RG 270. i got it cause it was cheap! and it was ibanez...like Vai has. But mine was an ugly wine red color. then i got another, a 550 series, and then a Jem, and then i made a custom one, and another, and another.........and then the rest is history. Ive got 5 now.

My first Ibanez was an EX1500. It was a little less than desirable (the color, pickguard, and gold hardware were beautiful though), but Ibanez's have improved in quality now and I am really contemplating getting a JEM or a JS series guitar.

For your other questions, I'd say go to a music store and try many different shapes and sounds of guitars before choosing one for life persay, but there are PLENTY of upper grade ibanez RG series guitars out there. p.s.- I would definitely put the Evos in it

how can you guys buy JEM's like that? They are like $2000 dollars. All that for a guitar which is the same as the top-of-the-line RG.

You bet. I have this same guitar with Evolutions on it already. Its fantastic. My main axe will always be in an Ibanez™.
