  • Fantastic Value

    As reviewed by Ray LaRussa on 2/15/2012

    I bought this guitar in red about 2 weeks ago and I couldn't be happier! The tone, feel, and overall build quality are EXCELLENT. The guitar has a beautiful satin finish asnd the neck is super smooth. The Sapele wood is gorgeous and this guitar blows away all others in the same or greater price range. The Epiphone Dot is not even in the same league. I own the Ibanez AF75 as well and now understand why George Benson endorses Ibanez. This is the perfect guitar for anyone looking to purchase a an ES 335 style hollow body, be they beginner or performer. The only objection I have is the fret ends are a bit sharp, but a little time with a dressing file will resolve that issue, which is more personal preference than actual necessity.

  • Great value

    As reviewed by Roadie Joe on 11/19/2013

    This guitar is a great value. I've been playing guitar and working in the industry since the 70's. I've owned countless guitars. This inexpensive Ibanez sounds good unplugged and plays great. The control scheme is simpler than an ES335 but that is a plus in my book. I play teles so one volume and one tone control with a 3-way switch is fine by me. Plus the body is slightly smaller than a ES335 but bigger than an ES339. It strikes a good balance of resonance and comfort. I replaced the pots and pickups, now it sounds a great as it plays. The sapele wood has a mahogany-like resonance and the neck feels like butter. This guitar is a keeper.

  • Amazing guitar for the money

    As reviewed by Jason Pearson on 4/22/2012

    I play blues, rock and metal...and this guitar does it all! I cannot believe how one guitar can clearly and smoothly play so many styles of music with so few features. This guitar is clean, clear and feels great along the neck. The pickups are decent and the variety of sounds you get from this guitar makes this my favorite out of the three I own.
