I love this guitar : Ibanez S Prestige


Far from a "practitioner of the more extreme forms of metal" , the apparent target market for this Ibanez line, I'm more of a rock/blues rhythm guitar guy, with a mostly-acoustic background.

In the last few years I've been playing regularly with a group of local guys, and have gone all-electric. I own a few cheapish electric guitars, and have borrowed or at least played a half-dozen higher end new and vintage models. While I can't honestly say I 'dislike' any musical instrument, especially a guitar, I hadn't found anything that really made me go 'wow'.

New Years' Eve day, Las Vegas, I walked into the guitar shop with my eye on the semi hollow-body goodies in the very top row of the monster guitar wall.  For me, light weight (my neck is already perma-strained from sitting at this damn keyboard all day anyway!) and *staying in tune under heavy use* were numbers one and two on the priority list.

I ended up playing at least 8 different guitars, checking out the feel, the tone, the weight... and the tuning. Then, while the helpful sales dude was moving ladders around to get yet another hollowbody from up yonder, I saw this funny little skinny guitar with a crazy wood pattern. I grabbed it just out of 'what the heck is this' ... and decided to plug it in.

Judah found the sheet music for an Allman Bros tune on the web. He hand typed the sheet music into his Finale Songwriter program, and then arranged the instruments and added some new improvised parts... check it out...
