i simply wanted a cheap, hobby guitar.. something to pass the time with and break out with after a long day. i tried out models from epiphone and cort, but this one stood out from the rest.
for the price, i'm quite happy with the sound. the solid body model was better but it was over my budget already. the strings were perfect like piano strings and they didn't flutter.
bolts for the guitar straps are a nice touch. tuning pegs didn't feel cheap. sturdy.
Ease of Use
as with all Ibanez guitars, i like how it seem to "melt in your hands" when you play them. necks aren't too thick and the strings are not that far from the board that you have to squeeze.
all parts seamlessly blend together. it's a well built guitar for it's price in comparison to the ones from epiphone and cort within the same price range.
I found out that this guitar is actually cheaper if bought new than buying the ones you would find in pawnshops.
I've played Ibanez for years and i never had to deal with the company because i never had any problems with their gear.
The Wow Factor
I've tried many guitars in the store that day that was within my budget but this one stood out the most. How a guitar feels is more important to me than looks, quality, and brand. If this was some other brand but had the same playing feel to it, I'd buy it.
I've been playing since i was 13 and played with friends from high school & worship bands.
christian, alternative rock.
