Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Very well made especialy considering the price!
How has it stood up over time?
Had it for about a year and have played it just about every day and some days at 8 to 10 hours and have had not problems and I am pretty tough on it
Your general opinion of this product.
Every thing is easier to play on this guitar. I can not believe the comfort of the neck I cant put it down once i start playing. I have played many ibanez models and prefer this one even over some of the more expensive models.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Like i said earlier the neck is unreal on this guitar. the only thing that could be better is the trem system it seems to go out of tune a lot when you use it. Though I have read that this seems to be a typical problem with floating systems.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The pickups will deliever any sound you want. This also depends a lot on your amp of course. I play through a peavy vyper and can pull any sound posible out of my guitar i desire.
How did the stain or paint job look?
great paint job pictures don't do it justice
How was the action out of the box?
Had to make a couple of minor adjustments. But the ibazez manual has detailed intructions for any thing that needs tweaking.
