"Hey you, go get this NOW."
Sound: Being an Ibanez with the infinity pick ups this is a metal machine. The five-way switch for the two pickups allows you to get a whole range of tone including more blues tones to crunch of metal. Feature: I got mine used so I'm not sure completely what it came with out of the box but on the guitar itself it is wonderful. The floating Floyd Rose works great and combined with the locking nut I rarely have to tune. The deluxe shark fin inlays and a really nice touch. Ease of Use: The action on this is amazing, i thought my other guitar was nice but with this barre chords are nothing and running scales and sweeps is a dream. This has to be the smoothest guitar I have ever played. Quality: The guitar is great, no blemishes, no cheap parts, everything is solid. The neck-through holds it together great (and give killer sustain). You have to try it in person to appreciate the quality. Value: Can't beat it, wouldn't say I would pay the $780 list but I got mine played maybe once or twice for $400 so I can't complain in the least. The Wow Factor: The neck is amazingly sleek and smooth and the shark fin inlays jump out at you, the finish on it looks amazing. Overall: Go get one now, or at least give it a try. You can't be disappointed.
Style of Music: What ever is there.

This review has been selected by our experts as particularly helpful. Ibanez RGT42DXFM Customer Review
Sound: This guitar sounds great. A lot better than my JEM 555 with the exception of the pickups. The pickups sound great for single strings and the guitar's sustain is amazing but power chords sound a little muddy and not well defined (more noticeable when recording). I've returned my JEM Jr to stock Dimarzio's and removed the EMG which will go into this guitar. Feature: There's not really any missing features. The pickup selection is more than I'll ever need. Neckthrough is great. Mahogany body. An ebony fretboard would be nice but not in this price range. Ease of Use: Excellent to play. Very nice action. The looks caught my eye right away but the guitar plays great which is why I bought it. Quality: I don't expect the quality to be bleeding edge on a lower priced guitar. Originally I looked at the RGT42 series over a year ago before I bought my JEM Jr. and found the quality to be lacking. The binding wasn't great and the neck wasn't that smooth. The latest version has much improved quality. There are few areas that could be improved. The bridge is ok. The tremelo bar is really skimpy. A couple screws are not quite perfectly straight. Value: The value of this guitar is high. The quality of workmanship is higher than expected and it just plays nice. Having a mahogany body and neckthrough make this guitar (to some poeple) more valuable than the lower end prestige models. Manufacturer Support: I've never dealt with Ibanez customer support. The Wow Factor: The Prestige models seem to be more directed at an older crowd in their looks (probably due to the price). I've been waiting for shark tooth inlays to come back in style for a while now and here they are. Now more than just the RG250DX have them. The finish on the guitar is really nice. Flat transparent. It looks black with little light, purplish with a bit more light, and more blue/lavendar (like it's supposed to be) in daylight. Overall: I think I'll be happy with this guitar for a while. If something happened to it down the road I would get another (unless something better came along). I will probably end up replacing both pickups and the bridge in the future (after I sell my JEM jr).
