Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable?
The guitar's craftsmanship is on par with The Ibanez Prestige guitars.I have read that some of the Japanese luthiers oversee the Premium Factory in Indonesia.So it is very well made to great detail all the way down to the fret edges to awsome paint job.
How has it stood up over time?
The guitar will last along time do to Awsome craftsmanship.
Your general opinion of this product.
Can't ask for better than this.
Playability and Feel
How does it feel, Heavy, Fast, Chunky? How was the neck? Are the controls easy to get to while playing?
Not too heavy but not as light as Ibanez "S" series. the controls are great.high end parts.
Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin?
The Dimarzio/IBZ pickups are great. Neck pickup is bright sounding. the bridge is warmer sounding.they are made in NY factory.
How did the stain or paint job look?
Paint job is awsome.nice ninja black color.The Ibanez logo is made out of Abolone and the same for Dot markers.
How was the action out of the box?
The action was perfect. but had to re-adjust for ernie ball colbalt 10's.
