Amazing guitar in EVERY aspect

Your general opinion of this product.
An amazing guitar. I have three Strats and a Les Paul standard and have owned more than that in the past. This guitar is simply amazing. Better for anything having to do with playing chords and solos. Nothing compares to the feel of the fretboard. Super Wizard neck is the best I've ever played and I've played for over 30 years. Fixed bridge is the only way to go. Very low maintenance, stays in tune, perfect intonation, super easy to set up and adjust. A Floyd Rose type is too much headache believe me. This is the best of the Prestige models in my opinion because of the tight-end bridge. Truly awesome. If your in doubt, buy it. You'll absolutely love it. So fun to play every time you pick it up. You'll think about it when you're not playing, it's that good. Trust me, simply awesome. The reason not a lot of reviews is because everyone buys these with the floyd-rose type edge zero tremolo. This guitar relieves you of that burden and leaves you the simple awesomeness of this Prestige RG.
Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
Team J craft? Really? That's why it is so awesome! The Premium Ibanez isn't even close, though an excellent guitar in itself. Save the extra money and get this Prestige model. Made in Japan and crafted to absolute awesomeness and perfection. Fantastic quality and attention to detail.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
Perfect for metal, perfect for rock, perfect for blues, perfect for thrash, perfect for jazz. Dimarzio's on this guitar are simply amazing. Rick deep tone that cuts through brilliantly no matter what you are doing. The sustain is deeper and longer and better than my les paul, no question, not even close. Dimarzio's are very quiet also. No loud hissing when the you and the instrument are taking a breather plugged in. The neck, the tight-end bridge and the basswood...there is no better combination in my opinion.
