"A fine guitar. I enjoy using it. I don't follow Dragonforce or Herman Li (my sons do) even though he was born here in Hong Kong." submitted April 25, 2010

Sound: As a professional guitarist and guitar tacher for over 40 years I've played a lot of guitars. I've been a Stratman since the '60's with occasional switches to Gretsch and Gibson. This guitar took a certain amount of time to set up properly. The sound is very good and varied and suits my mixture of music ranging from the '50's through to the '80's. I tested it for a long time before purchase. I will be using it with a Marshall amp amongst others. Feature: The guitar came with the usual allen keys and spare spring. Ease of Use: Easy to get the good sounds I need from this guitar. Quality: Very nicely made. I treat my guitars carefully and make them last. As long as possible. Value: Definitely worth what I paid for it. Manufacturer Support: No dealings as yet with Ibanez. The Wow Factor: It appeals to me and everyone else who sees it. I don't know about it's "sex appeal". I don't really bother about that too much!! Overall: I expaect to use a product for a long time if I buy it. I would replace it if lost or stolen.

Sound: I purchased this for my son for a graduation gift, then I thought I wanted to keep it for myself! Great quality, Many great sounds, 24 frets (I was hoping 21-24 were scalloped-not). Lightweight MONSTER!! Standard pick ups offer good tones. Feature: Natural flame maple top, mahogany body, maple neck, rosewood fingerboard- A beautiful guitar. Hand grip. Edge III Tremlo (I have this in my Sam Totman Iceman and Love it! Push pull split coil volume- more great tones! I wanted Scalloped frets -not on this model! Ease of Use: Played tight for me, My son loves it though for fast shredding. Quality: Very good quality guitar for the price!! Value: Worth the price!! The Wow Factor: Very good appearance- wish there were more color choices. Overall: A great addition to my son's collection!

Sound: The sound is clear well-defined with lots of bite. Feature: Plenty of features with lots of options to define your sound. Its like the Swiss Army knife of guitars. Ease of Use: I feel like I can play anything with this guitar. The setup right out-of-the-box is amazing. Quality: The quality is great. It is very well built and will last a lifetime. Value: Incredible value. I got a lot of guitar for a little very little money. Manufacturer Support: I haven't needed to use the support. That in itself should say something. The Wow Factor: This guitar is awesome it makes my other guitar is jealous. Overall: I got this guitar from zzounds and I have no regrets. I really didnt like Floyd Rose bridges. They where just to time consuming for someone who wants to just play but the edge bridge is great. Still takes some time to change strings but is well worth it. The action on the neck is outstanding. The sound is clear at any volume. I Definitely would buy this guitar again and recommend it to others. I can't wait to get another Ibanez.
