I bought this guitar because it looked like one of the Ibanez's I played years ago and had since sold, I was surprised at the quality, playability and sound, at first I was taken back at the size, its a small body,I'm used to 16 archtops as I play jazz a lot but this does it too, just took some used to. I like the single coil function without pulling on the tone knob, the finish is flawless and the neck prefect.
