Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I have not played this much but acoustic instruments are more fragile by nature then their electric counterparts, so I keep it in it's hard shell case when I am not playing it. It seems well made, and I do guitar tech work for some local Vendors so I would Know. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? It has the features common to most Acoustic/Electric instruments. The tuner seems to only work on mine when it's plugged in. It may just be a battery saving feature but it is annoying at times. General Your general opinion of this product. I got this instrument because my brother wanted me to help him out as bassman in his country band. My electric bass collection was not fitting in on stage so I wanted to get an instrument to let me blend in. It works well for the job I have assigned for it. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Its tone is better plugged in then acoustic if I am honest. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The paint job is top notch work.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Not dependable. After only 4 months I can no longer play it through my amp. It's just an acoustic guitar and the tuner does not work. The warranty is worthless as it cost almost as much to ship it to PA for repairs as the $200 it cost. No authorized repair in Ohio or Michigan. I am VERY unhappy with Ibanez!!!! Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? A decent warranty General Your general opinion of this product. Waste of my money!!! Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? ok Finish How did the stain or paint job look? ok

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Made fairly well. The strings that come with it are very cheap and break easy and one of the tuning nuts came loose so I already have had it in the shop.. Features What do you consider to be the best features of this product? What features would you add to this product if you could? Pre-amp is touchy. Strings were poorly made and one broke while tuning for the first time. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The tone is a bit tinny for my taste. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Very nice.
