    Bought one of these a couple of years ago as a graduation present to myself. It's an Ibanez ARC300, and it's fantastic. I didn't think I liked Ibanez's, but then I tried that, and it's far better than any other similar-priced guitar I've tried. Got it for $800 IIRC, marked down from $1100, so it's in the same range as your Epiphone Les Paul knock-offs, but is far, far nicer to play than them. Great tone, good tone control, and the neck is a nice, comfortable size and shape. Looks good too, with the Paua inlay and all.

    Think it won some NZ music magazine award as the best overall guitar the year I bought it, considering value for money etc. Highly recommended.

    Holy ****, a new person!

    Just watch the components with Ibanez. I own an Ibanez Universe, cost me thousands but had a $2 pickup selector and a cheap jack in it. Great guitars otherwise, make some of the best necks in the business these days.

    Well, it certainly looks nice and with any Fernandes, generally guaranteed you're getting a good axe. I know theres a lot more buzz around the quality of early 80's Revivals Strats/Teles, though and I can vouch for how nice the latter are.

    Tone Nazi's would balk at the bridge being 5-saddle and modern but meh, if it's good enough for Jerry Donahue, it's good enough for anyone.

    Gear update:



    Power and headroom to spare. $850 new, bargain (as far as music gear prices in NZ go anyway).

    What's the most comfortable way to play a C#min D5 chord on a Guitar? (EADGBE tuning)

    Hmmm, not 100% sure exactly what you mean. C#m and D5 are separate chords. If you're talking about the difference between barre and open chords, C#m is definitely easier as a barre chord whether the type I (9th fret) or type II (4th fret) version. D5 is a power chord so a half-barre ()

    On other matters, here's a short guitar break at my new band's last gig.

    Oh, anyone looking to buy a Tele should definitely sell one of their kids and grab this.

    Looks about as good as any I've seen on eBay.

    Meant C sharp minor with a diminished 5th, thinking about using it as a substitute chord to an A7 in a random progression I'm slapping together

    I must say, that chord is a pretty effective way of summoning satan

    The C#min dim5 or A7? Mind you I'm playing Bass with tiny hands so I can't see it.
