General What is your overall opinion of this product? I got a late start in regards to playing the guitar. I called tech support to ask how to remove the foam insertion under the floating bridge but I guess they were too busy to call me back. I surfed the net and found the information I was looking for. I removed the foam insertion and put new strings on the guitar. I am very happy with the results. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? My opinion of the quality of the guitar is that it is very well made and as well as very beautiful. I only just got started playing the guitar and focused on the song Moondance by Van Morrison. The minor chords sound absolutely lovely. Overall a really great guitar. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? The neck was fine for me. My hand did not get tired and my fingers loved the neck and ebony fretboard. I have fairly medium to small hands but the neck felt great. The controls are easy to use with a three way switch that gives excellent tones. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? The tone is beautiful and lovely. I guess one could call the tone bright, snappy, dark, and smooth all in one as it seems that the tone changes of course with chord progression and lead. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The stain and paint job are great. I think that the coat of urethane will keep the guitar protected for a very long time. The guitar is a beauty! Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? I am impressed with this guitar. I suppose if I had to pick something that surprised me it would be the coating of urethane that covers the guitar as it is very glossy. I prefer a satin finish but I can live with this guitar. I truly believe that I got what was expected for my money. Its comparison to other products is unsurpassed as this guitar is very well made and quite a looker. Playability How was the action out of the box? Like I said earlier I took out the foam under the floating bridge and put jazz light strings on. I did not try the guitar just out of the box as it was signed as inspected in or about July 2012. So...I went ahead and put new strings on. The action is very nice and I love the frets as they do not have jagged edges as some guitars do. Overall I give this guitar a 10 and if this one were to disappear I would get another.
Very nice jazz box great price

General Your general opinion of this product. Starting with the looks very attractive great finish cant find anything wrong from the top to bottom nice binding all around nice balanced feel the neck is spectacular sounds and plays like a much more expensive guitar Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I feel the quality in just holding it it feels sturdy and road ready Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The sound and tone are true to an expensive full hollow body you can play the neck pkup with no tone adjustment and still have a usable warm mot muddy sound the tone knob is smooth and even the bridge pkup gives you plenty on bite when you need it Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Excellent
Great sounding guitar

General Your general opinion of this product. For the price range i think the guitar is a very good value.Comes with a nice hard case. A gibson is $3,000 plus. This guitar was $999.00 with a nice case Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? I was disappointed at first being made in China. Being a Ibanez I thought it would be Japan made. The fit and finish seems to be very good. Good feel to the neck. Action pretty decent out of the case. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? The pickups have a nice clean mellow sound. I love the clean settings. The overdriven sound is not has defined . Gets a litle muddy. Guitar really isnt made for rock styles. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish is just gorgeous. Looks like alot more expensive guitar. Very happy with the finish
