I have a mid-90's Ibanez MIJ. It's not a Universe or Jem, or one of those funky Steve Vai models with the grip cutout - which I think is totally ridiculous. It's just a run of the mill RG. I love playing it. Do I fully utilize that extra string to create complex, rich, exotic melodies and chords only capable by said guitar and its extended scale possibilities? No. I chug on the Low B.
