Another Great Product from Ibanez
General
What is your overall opinion of this product?
I think this is a great instrument. I just wish the top had a mostly burled maple look than a mostly flamed maple look. The 9th fret on the high E string produces a tiny bit of buzz. I am assuming a bit of relief from a truss rod adjustment will take care of this. I did raise the floating bridge a bit and changed the strings to no avail. I didn't care for The D'Addario Chrome flat-wound strings it shipped with. This was my first experience with flat wounds. I don't like the slippery feel these flat wounds have. I also like to be able to bend the 3rd string a whole step if the need or "want" arises. You can't do that with a wound 3rd. I found this out by breaking it as I tried to bend it up a whole step, oops. I put D'addario half rounds 12 - 52 (replaces 3rd with PL024/unwound 3rd) Half rounds sound more "alive" and are more of what I am used to which is round wound phosphor/bronze for my acoustic guitars.
Quality
What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music?
Nothing sticks out as being cheap.
Feel
Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Great feel
Tone
How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin?
Inspiring, with the right strings and amp setting if amplified.
Finish
How did the stain or paint job look?
Classy expensive look =)
Value
Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range?
I didn't expect the tiny fret buzz at one fret and the look of the wood on top.
Playability
How was the action out of the box?
It's great but not sure how it will be after putting some relief in the neck to get rid of that fret buzz. It is such a minor bit of buzz that it only happens depending upon the amount of finger pressure applied.
