"truly more than it cost!"
zZounds has verified that this reviewer made a purchase from us.
I lost my career in the military from MS and year after year I lost my ability to play guitar. 20yrs later I decided I would try to play a 6string- I had an Ibanez 12 and gave it to a friend since he could play like i use to. Well I got this guitar just 20 minutes ago- can'r I say tears? LOL!!! It even came almost in tune adn I badly played "Hello in there",..., but it will get better with this box. The finish and detail is all Ibanez and it is a thinner box so I can handle i easier than the 12. If you want a subtle sunburst top in a rich wine tone- well you could not want any more for the money,.., and even without an amp,..., it still sounds great but my amp is on the way so I will fill my world once again with "simple" tunes and depth of words. Thank you zZ for making this goal happen- SL Mount
just filled the stars and there are not enough starts to reflect this seemingly middle of the road box,..., because it is anything but middle of the road. From a humble beginner to a seasoned player,..., this box will make all humble and yet proud to be holding this instrument. "WOW Factor?,..., off the charts!
With MS the cut away is great to have tho I doubt I'm be doing any Hendrix, the neck is not as wide as a gut classical but it is very playable for smaller hands alike. The box itself is a thinline and is light, and very easy to play around. Just a really great instrument. Even IF you never played it seriously,..., this Guitar would look perfect on the wall- and you'd still have a guitar to play. But just looking at it in person makes you want to play it.
Ease of Use
It sounds good but I can tell it's voice will come out 100% when I get the amp. but without the amp it still sounds rich.
The product looks and is quality,..., Have had Ibanez guitars for over 40 years when I could play,...., they stand behind their boxes and I never had a problem with one of them. The entire look of this box in person says,..., PLAY ME! and you do, it is just one rich looking guitar and sounds as rich as it looks.
This guitar is worth every penny and then some. A no-risk purchase for a lifetime of pleasure whether you stay a simple " cold night by the fireplace" musician or hit the stage.
Not yet and if the past Ibanez boxes I have own are any indication- this one will be no issues.
The Wow Factor
This guitar just captures your eyes, if you covered the names in it and asked how much others thot it cost you would not get a guess at $299,..., it would be much more. I just feel lucky to have seen this at ZZ's,..., I ordered it as soon as I saw it. I'm partial to deep dark wine/burgundy tones and Ibanez did this one PERFECTLY! And to do it such an understated Sun Burn style,... well teh foto online sold me but it is so much more handsome in my hands.
