General What is your overall opinion of this product? I had to do a little work on the fret edges top and bottom with a small tooling file. They had jagged edges. Not real bad but enough that I noticed it moving up and down the neck. Otherwise a great guitar. I really like the way it sits on me when I play sitting down. My Strat likes to move around when sitting but the Ibanez just falls naturally to a spot and stays put. After tweeting it in and doing a full setup which I always do. It is a great playing good sounding guitar. I also changed the strings out as always because I like the Daddario nickel wound light top/heavy bottom strings . Holds tuning great. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? Great quality. Hard to believe it came from China. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? It is a little lighter than my Strat. Neck is real nice size for my hand and it has very little or no clear coat on it so I can actually feel the wood. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? It was good on all fazes of sounds from an acoustic sound to real dirty metal tones. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Paint is beautiful and I have always liked the Ibanez shape. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? Others that have seen it can't believe it only cost $200. I really think I got a good deal on this one. Playability How was the action out of the box? Like most every guitar I have ever bought new. I just go ahead and change strings out to match my own style of playing and do a complete setup. But it was very playable as is if I wasn't so picky.
Not a bad guitar at all

General What is your overall opinion of this product? It's not a bad guitar, the strings were terrible, I changed them out right away. It really wasn't set up very well, almost everything on it had to be adjusted. Sort of got the feeling they just threw it together and got it out the door. But if you adjust it and change out the strings it's a pretty good little guitar. Quality What is your opinion of the quality of this product? How does it work for different genres of music? The body, neck and hardware is excellent and once I gave it some TLC, it plays great, some of the best sustain I've heard. Might change out the pick ups because I like my guitars to sound a little hotter. But for practice and just general playing, it's great. Feel Heavy, fast, chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing? Feels very good, the neck is extremely fast, it's light, the controls are solid. It's quite fun to play, add a little overdrive and this thing can get very nasty. Tone How is the tone? Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick or thin? Good tone, it can go from sweet to nasty really quickly. Pick ups are not as hot as I like but as is it can still get mean and dirty. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Excellent finish, a lot darker than I hoped, I got the blue one and it is so dark it looks black. But the finish is flawless. Value Did you get what you were expecting for the price? How does it compare to similar products in the same price range? About average, a good guitar for the money. Playability How was the action out of the box? Out of the box it was a mess, the strings were terrible, the intonation way off so it needed a little work before it was playable.
