"She plays as good as she looks"
Sound: I played it and fell in love with it ....Rich, natural tones with a tremendous range of tones....love the pickups and the feel of this guitar....she's a pretty one to look and hold...maybe I got lucky with this one cause she sounds and plays like one in a million Feature: Beautiful flame top and matching pickguard...no accessories but everyone is like that anymore...would like to know some of their recommendations on polish, humidity protection etc... Quality: Feels solid, also have a strat and tele and les paul, I think for the jazz jobs this is perfect...solid contacts, no noise from pickups or jacks Value: I felt like there was no way I could not afford to take this guitar home after I played it.....great deal Manufacturer Support: No dealings with company per se,,,have had Ibanez gear since the 70's and all peices still work The Wow Factor: It is a practical addition to make music world, I own acoustic guitars, bass guitars, and other electric guitars...This one was love at first sight and touch..plus it sounds great Overall: I want to keep this one as a personal favorite and I would try to replace it with the same model...but every guitar has its own personality in your hands,,,mine fit with this one
Style of Music: Fusion rock jazz blues

zZounds has verified that this customer bought this product from us. "Bargain Jazz Box"
Sound: This is a smooth jazz guitar. They ship it with .010 standard electric strings, which don't make any sense to me. I string it with Thomastik-Infeld Jazz Swing Mediums, with a .013 top. I only use the neck pickup, and I roll off the treble a bit at the guitar, and turn the treble off completely at the amp. Add a bunch of fast-decay reverb, and you are swinging. It just makes you want to play jazz. Chords and runs all have "that sound". Think George Benson or Pat Metheny, with lots of odd harmonics. The pickups have a very "vintage" tone. It's a blast to play. Roundwound strings and the bridge pickup make a rockabilly sound, but there's no tremolo, and feedback would be a problem for this style. You can't play this guitar loud without bassy feedback, and it sounds best with a single speaker. I have bigger amps, but my little $89 Crate GX15-R is my favorite with this guitar. Feature: The guitar's looks are one step down from being made in Chinatown. It has bound flamed maple everything, including the soundholes and pickguard, and inlays in the inlays. Are they real? I don't know. Unless other people have a magnifying glass, they won't know either. It's real purty. Quality: Where would you take it on the road? This is a bedroom and coffeehouse guitar. It looks well glued, and has a sturdy case. Value: If you want a smooth jazz box, you know what they normally cost. This guitar does the jazz thing for 25% of the usual price. If you want a second guitar for messing around playing jazz, and you don't have $1500 to satisfy the craving, this is a great choice. Manufacturer Support: I've not needed support from Ibanez, or touch-ups by a luthier The Wow Factor: My wife likes it a lot, and she's not sensitive to history or the usual measure of quality in fine guitars. It just looks good, and I don't drive her crazy when I play it. If find it fun and relaxing to play. Overall: The only thing that keeps this guitar from being a perfect low-guilt purchase is the feedback. If you want to mellow out or put a baby to sleep, it's dead-nuts perfect.
Style of Music: Folk, Jazz, Fretless Bass

1. zZounds offers the industry‘s most musician-friendly payment plans

zZounds offers a variety of Play as You Pay installment plans that allow you to get the gear you want today. While our competitors might offer house credit cards that require you to fill out an application and pass a credit check, our payment plans are easy to get, simple to use, and, best of all, accrue zero interest. Unlike those house credit cards that can leave you vulnerable to exorbitant interest charges once the promotional period ends, we never have and never will charge interest when you take advantage of one of the zZounds Play as You Pay plans.
