Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Overall, great comfortable guitar. Plays awesome. Feels solid, light and looks sweet. A lot of thought was put into the playability of this guitar and you can feel that as you continue to play it. There are minor cosmetic flaws, but every company has there lemons from time to time. General Your general opinion of this product. Overall, this is a great playing gutiar once it has been set up to your personal preferences(as with many guitars) It looks awesome, plays awesome, feels awesome. Cosmetically, there are some areas of the guitar I feel more attention could have been paid. For $1,600 I expected this to have less flaws than some of the cheaper guitars I have owned, but hey - they make it unique and I know its mine that way; I've grown to love it. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? Not bad for stock Ibanez pickups, but it's likely I'll be replacing them in the near future. The stock pickups have crunch on the bottom end, warm smooth mids when your amp settings are dialed. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? The finish of the body was nice, but things like the frets and fretboard were a poor finish. The sides of the frets where they are recessed into the fretboard are visible in some spots and finished in others, and what looks like a paint brush fixed some cosmetic flaws but is still very visible. Felt like things like this shouldn't be a problem when paying $1,600 for a new guitar. Also, the volume knob cap fell off several times the first time I used it band practice. Again, for the price I felt I shouldn't have had any small issues like this, but again - it was a small issue and was just a matter of tightening it.
One Great Guitar..

Quality Would you consider this product to be made well? How dependable? Yes, this Ibanez build to play and last... General Your general opinion of this product. This is a great axe. I know it was build for metal but for me it is a true versatile instrument. I play a mixture of styles metal, jazz fusion, progressive, ambient and works well for in all. Tone Bright and snappy? Dark and smooth? Were the pickups hot, mellow, thick, thin? It depends on the tone your use. You can easily go from dark to smooth. The pickups are nice, no need to change them. Finish How did the stain or paint job look? Get flat finish, no fancy design or woods, easy to clean. great for road gigs.
