Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Its my first ibanez and I'm pretty happy with my decision to get it. Thanks to AMS for their payment plan I finally got my 8 string I've been wanting for awhile now! It's well made but there are some things I will have to change. General Your general opinion of this product. I was super excited just to receive it. It is a nice looking guitar but I noticed a couple of flaws when I first played it. The action was very high and the pickups are going to have to be changed out. There isn't any life in them. I still have a lot of fun playing it though. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Like I said before I'm going to get the pickups changed out for sure. The sound they produce just isn't very appealing to me. It's something I noticed right away. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Paint job is as good as an all black guitar can be.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? well made over all quality for the price is out standing. AAA+ General Your general opinion of this product. great price for this quality made guitar,you would be hard pressed to find one this nice for the money from any other manufacture. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? good tone but it could be better with a new set of pickups but will do for now Finish How did the stain or paint job look? you can see the craftmanship, ibanez takes pride in every single guitar they finish, and it shows as soon as you see your new guitar for the first time.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Very well made, Impressed - I own Jackson soloists, ESP M1, Schecter C-7 and Les Paul Custom. This just plays well, maybe it has it's own mojo? General Your general opinion of this product. First Ibanez for me and I am very pleased with the fit and finish. The RG came very well set up - obviously AMS did a great job and it was the first I didn't need to immediate change strings and set up. Owning a Schecter C7, the Ibanez just plays better. When you check the specs, this is the thinnest neck around, in fact I felt immediately conformable with the 8 string (more so than the 7)and played for hours. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? stock sound somewhat muddy, but passable

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? i own a arsenal of ibanez guitars and other products and have for about 10 years and ive never had one fail. General Your general opinion of this product. This is the best guitar ive ever played a quick pickup upgrade to some blackouts would make it even better, but for what it is ibanez hit the nail on the head. slim neck, light weight, and affordable. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? the stock pickups are a lil dull i would suggest throwing in seymour duncan blackouts. mid switch should always be on for best tone. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? pait is and excellent gloss black but i would have much rather had a different color as everyother black guitar i have bought has be repainted to a much flashier color.

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? see above General Your general opinion of this product. this is a great deal don't waste more on the same guitar with a basswood body that looks like a jem. I bought this body is a 4 piece mahogany and tone is, the neck is thinner then most of the newer 7 strings, setup is a breeze and it plays well. Now if I can only get a high A4 on it that will last ill be set, the low f# is a waste for me as it is just too low. The pickups are complete junk, I have ordered a set of bare knuckle cold sweats, they sound like evo 2's. other than that very happy with the guitar itself at 799.00 this is a steal get one before the fad dies. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? trashy pickups by bare knuckle cold sweats. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? decent some issues with the body grain seen but you have to look.
