I am with you badmonkey... first I ordered a JTV69 which worked well, however the neck was way too thick for my taste and it buzzed heavily... next came a JTV89 which worked well had serious buzzing problems as well, I returned it and back came another JTV89 which wasnt so bad, but again has serious buzzing...
As you said, I have an Ibanez that costed 500 dollars and it was top notch, it just played amazing out of the box, so its really sad that we are getting this quality for so much money, if it wasnt for the great sounds this technology offers I never had bought it...

I understand your frustration at getting bad units, but I have a JTV-59 that is near perfect, so they're not all bad. And with QA, the real question has to be what percentage are bad. Without knowing how many have been made and sold, there's simply know way of knowing whether 5% are bad or 50% are bad. We certainly can't infer much from reading a support forum. As has been said many times, happy users are too busy playing to spend much time defending their guitars. Just my $0.02, though.
