Comments about Ibanez RG Premium RG1070PBZ Electric Guitar:
I'm learning more about this model as I use it however as a general observation; the finish, the included hardware, and the case are all first rate in all the right ways. It plays with authority and precision. I compared it to my JEM Series Prestige and My Custom Made S540 Limited with no shame (both 2000 era) and all in a similar price category when purchased, this premium a better quality instrument. I love the new canvas type case and prefer it over my hard-shell molded ones.
The tremolo has finally advanced to a precision, flexible, tunable piece of industrial art, a sore point with my other Ibanez gear. Overall I would by this again without hesitation and I didn't buy another last year's model Prestige. Do download the new manual for tips on the thumb wheel feature in the back and to familiarize yourself with the new paradigm for the fasteners on the tremolo which is more streamlined than previous revisions.
What isn't So Cool
The factory setup was OK and playable but not fabulous. (But this is a personal preference element.)
The Pro version of this tremolo includes a screw located on the right side that is used for on the spot intonation adjustments but has been excluded from this version. Frankly it's a bad decision. All instruments in this price range should accommodate the player and allow for intonation adjustments without any hassles such as this feature.
Mine delivered with the locking nut screws loose in the case and the high E-string also detached. I contacted GC Support, and advised.
