The EMG H4A neck humbucker is versatile with very well-balanced, with solid bass, pronounced mids, and fat highs whle the EMG H4 in the bridge offers superb clarity, full body, and delicate responsiveness.

Groovy little guitar

By David Polaczek

from lockport, IL

Decided to give myself a treat and picked up my 26th guitar - a white ARZ400...and I'm glad I did. This guitar plays great and I was impressed with the quality, fit and finish of it. I couldn't find any flaws in this guitar's finish! It's one of those guitars that felt good the moment I first picked it up. I've been playing guitar for over 40 years now. I had several Ibanez guitars and this ARZ400 is definitely my favorite. My ol' Fender American Standard Telecaster is still my #1 though... The only reason I gave the ARZ400 four stars is because of the EMG pickups. Don't get me wrong, the EMGs sound good but lack compared to an EMG 81/85 combo...(I've been playing exclusively on active EMG's since 1980's...and I was too cheap to get the ARZ800 which has the 81/85 EMGs) I've been going to GC since the late 70's. (the store in Evergreen Park) I am glad to see that GC is still around and better than ever.

Was finally able to get this guitar the other day. I was supposed to get it in white but ended up getting it in black because it was the only one they had in stock, and to be honest I think I'm starting to like the black better!! This guitar looks so good and sounds amazing! The neck has the exact kind of feel that I love, it's only a little thinner than my Epi Les Paul's neck so its great for hardcore music. Also, I never really understood the saying "fast neck" until I played this guitar. Tapping is so much easier, I can run my scales so much faster, and it's so much for those quick riffs in the music I listen to. The quality of this guitar is just as good as a Les Paul from what I can tell, which can be hard to beat. But it doesn't surprise me coming from Ibanez! Its a pretty light guitar, but not so light that it's awkward like some guitars I've played. Overall, this guitar is absolutely amazing!!!!!!

my band's guitarist just got this guitar and it sounds purely amazing, i picked it up and played it, really smooth neck, the cutaway is perfectly positioned and just looks beautiful in black with the white binding. the sound is perfect, better than his old jackson guitar and it makes his Line 6 amp sound even better, those emg's really cut through the amp perfectly. all in all this guitar is worth the $500. if you seriously want to play good shows, be comfortable, and record good; get this guitar!

Oh Dayum!

By Judith Marsh

from Salt Lake City, Utah

I played this guitar in the store the other day and was so surprised. Honestly, it's one of the best guitars I have ever played. The good: It is a very lightweight guitar and it has an awesome contour on the neck joint for playing leads. The neck actually meets the body at the 17th fret rather than the traditional 15th or 14th area and it makes it way easier to play semi-high register notes. It seems built like the instrument could stand a few drops here and there but it's not a tank. The bad: The pickups are so weak. They don't "push" the amp at all, the seem almost "distant" when played. They also seem to only pick up the metallic pick attack. The TOM bridge seems really high and(for me)it made the guitar kind of uncomfortable to play.(This is entirely subjective.) I think this a steal for $500. Just invest in some new pickups. This thing would scream with some EMGs/Blackouts, DiMarzios or even some BareKnuckles.

I'm 15 years old and this is my second guitar. i just started playing guitar about a year ago and this guitar is the best sounding Ibanez i have ever heard or played. the pickups sound amazing! and the neck is thin and easy to work with, sounds great, and if you are looking to play some Metallica or maybe some slower softer bands like oasis, this guitar pretty much does it all. i plugged it in to my Marshall and it sounded awesome! i would highly recommend this guitar!!!
