Let me preface this page by stating that I am a guitar
dealer, not a technical advisor for the world. Technical support is available
for guitars purchased from Ibanez Rules only. If I sold you the guitar just
email me your problem and include the model and approximate purchase date.
Otherwise, I do not have the time to solve
the worlds problems, and the 20-30 emails a day asking for help prompt me to
write this message. The articles on this page were written to try and assist
those that need help. They were written as simply as I could explain and if
there is something in them you don't understand please try and find somebody
else to help you understand. If I had the time I would write many more pages to
add, but I do not. Bottom line is that trying to diagnose something sight unseen
is far too time consuming and often virtually impossible. Nothing can replace
real hands and real eyes and anybody having problems that can't be diagnosed
should seek the help of a qualified local tech. And no, I don't want to hear a
sob story about how there are none for 200 miles, I've heard it all before.
Network with other guitar players as many of them know as much as most store
techs. None of this is rocket science and in short, most is just common sense.
There are always knowledgeable people willing to help in the tech section of the
Jemsite forum where I do
answer questions when I have the time, but as with all free advice, you get what
you pay for.
