Overall: I fell in love with Ibanez guitars since my very first GSA60 model. This guitar is no exception. Great set-up from the factory and a very good sounds considering the stock pick-ups. Some might consider the red on block a cliche color combination but Ibanez leaves nothing out with the deep crimson color. Overall, if you're looking for something with a little more not clarity, throw some duncan's in it and it will sound way better than a $200 guitar. I love it!

Overall: This guitar is amazing at this price point. Needed very little setup out of the box. More of these cheaper Strat-style guitars should have a hardtail bridge like this does, far better tuning stability and amazing sustain.Stock pickups are a little on the dark side and lack clarity at high gain, however they do clean up very nice. With a set of Duncans this $230 axe could be a shred beast. Very impressed overall. Also this is my first Ibanez.

Overall: This guitar plays better than guitars I've paid triple the price for.Everything you need in a guitar is here. The only fault I have found is when playing, the volume knob seems to be a bit in the way,which makes me have to alter my hand position..especially when playing metal...If anyone is on the fence about this guitar...go ahead..you won't regret it.I also think this color scheme is my favorite...looks great...imoThe pick ups are solid..nice highs and lows..not dissatisfied at all..and I've not spoken with support so I cant comment....i would not hesitate to recommend this guitar to anyone from beginner to advanced..performs great.

Overall: My wife got this guitar for me. I love this guitar!I have been a epiphone les paul fan for years. But my Ibanez blows it out of the water. I had to do a little adjusting to it but once I got it dialed it it Rocks! I also put heavier strings on it.

Overall: I am a fan of Ibanez for over 20 years. I love the look of this guitar. I have an RG I bought in 1997 and it still rocks today. This guitar came straight out of the box ready to play. I did go through the process of set up and intonation and found it the act was spot on. I only had to make small adjustment for intonation on two strings the 5th and 6th respectively. I oiled the frets and polished the body to protect the paint and started playing in the sound room within a hour of getting this guitar. I do recommend this guitar for all styles of playing.
