This guitar is okay. The neck is awesome, and the pickups are good. But whenever i play the third string ninth fret, the thing buzz's more than a bee. And one of the screws on the tremlo system came loose and when i tryed to tighten it, it striped. i like how thin the neck is though. stays in tune okay.

My first guitar

By DirtyWizard

from nebraska

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

When i started playing guitar, i was immediatly fascninated with amazing players like satriani and vai, who both play ibanez model guitars. I fell in love with the look of the rg series, and decided that i would get a low end rg as my first guitar. I dont really have anything to compare it to, since i have not played a better guitar, but i dont have any complaints. The guitar is comfortable, easy to handle, and for having a tremolo, it stays in tune well, although my biggest complaint with the guitar is the time it takes to properly set up alternate tunings. THe tremolo is designed to be in standard e, and it is hard to get it to stay in anything else. Even flatting a half step took about 20 minutes to get all the strings in tune. All in all, it is a good learning guitar, i have not had any hardware difficulties or anything. a well put together guitar

good guitar for the price

By Chris

from St. Peters, MO

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

For the price this guitar is good, and also for beginners. The pick ups are alright and i like the neck a lot, I've played on a friends $500 fender and i couldn't play near as good as i could with this guitar, it was all in the fenders neck and strings felt weird. It also gets a pretty good distortion sound if you use pedals. Over all its above average for its price.

Great Starter

By BadgerKing

from Chicagoland, IL

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

I am a starting musician. I've been playing elictric guitars for a half year now and played acoustic for a year. I tried many electrics and felt perfect with this RG. It doesn't have tons of features (just volume, tone, and a three way switcher) but it gets the job done. It's light weight easy to pick up and play. The price is excellent! You can't get much better than this for 200 bucks.

i love this guitar

By trevor t.

from groton, ct

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

this guitar is probably one of the best i have out of 8 guitars. i think that this is not only a great starter guitar, but a great over-all guitar too. it's great for any type of music. i might reccomend the zakk wylde icon series strings by dunlop as the ultimate combination. as a metal guitarist, i like to move fast, and this guitar is the ultimate for it. even though it was made as a starter guitar, its great for all skill levels.i would reccomend this to anyone who wants a great sound, or is just starting to learn how to play.

Excellent

By daryle

from OKC,OK

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is great. Easy action. Sounds great. So far, the best guitar I've owend. A prevoius review mentioned things falling off the guitar. Thus far, I haven't had that problem. Sounds like the guy is just hard on guitars. For the price, this is a great starter, or if you're on a budget. I've been playing for 15 years and this is the best guitar I've owned. Budget or not. Haven't tried the tremelo yet. I'm not much of a tremelo player, but so far it stays in tune just fine.

This Guitar Is Awesome

By Frank M

from New York

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

Man I have owned more expensive Steinbergers, Burns, Fenders, and this RG120 sounds better and plays better I swear by my soul !! The fretboard is a real guitar players fretboard. For the money I would take two though I am low on the dough...It would be an insult to call this a "starter guitar" I am an old pro and now this is my main axe !!

Ibanez challenges top-names!

By Nick

from Stafford, VA.

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

I was at Guitar Center yesterday, just testing different guitars, when the salesman recommended this. I picked it up, plugged it into a Spider Valve, and Experimented with the Hi-Gain channel. Wow! I was testing Epiphone SGs to Schecter Damiens, and this beat them all! If you're a beginning guitarist, or even a pro, you will love this guitar.

Amazing

By Jacob

from hamilton, ohio

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar december 14, as and early christmas present and i am pleased with the sound. i have only owned it for one day and i am able to produce a deep metal crunchy sound. amazing guitar for the money, id say its one of the best guitars around its price. this guitar exceded my expectations as it can produce both clean crisp sounds and deep crunchy chugs. the guitar has a good solid feel to it. this guitar is awesome for rock or metal. i can play many metallica songs and its sounds almost exactly like kirk hammet is playing. i would recommend this guitar to anyone even an experienced guitar player because for the price you just can't get anything better

Awesome

By Dan

from Sanford, Florida

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

I have been surounded by guitars since my best friend got his first guitar nearly 10 years ago. I finally decided that it was time for me try my hand at it this year. After shopping around, I finally saw this black rg120 and instantly fell in love with it. After seeing friends struggle with "cheaper" guitars, I was weary about buying a "starter guitar." I decided on this guitar and paired it with a Peavy Vypyr 15 amp. I must say that I have no regrets. Since tuning it the day I bought it, I have not had to touch it. After playing it for about a month now, it has a very comfortable feel for a rookie like me. I looked at guitars for a while, and I am absolutely pleased with the choice I made. This is a nice, good looking guitar and worth the price.

Simply Amazing

By Chris Westbrook

from Greensboro, NC

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

Got this guitar as a Christmas present from my family and by far this guitar is above all others. Very good sound, looks very sleak and is a joy to play and works very well with pretty much any genre but especially metal, hard rock and even some country so this guitar can do it all I highly recommend it!

Disappointing

By fretburner

from Woodburn, OR

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

I bought this guitar the other day, looking for a solid backup guitar with a tremolo bridge. I went with Ibanez because I have an RG2ex2 and it's a great guitar. But I took the RG120 home and was extremely disappoined in the quality of this instrument. The strings never stayed in tune and the high e string produced horrible wolf notes that ruined anything I attempted to play. I immediately returned this guitar in exchange for a Gibson. The RG120 is definitely not the guitar for experienced players.

great guitar for everyone

By metalhead

from wa

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

for an entry priced guitar this thing is great the neck is very slim the pups dont sound half bad and its pretty light. the only problem i had was the tuners. i like to use the whammy bar alot and the stock tuners wouldnt have it. so i put in locking tuners and it wont go out of tune. to sum it this is a great guitar for the price and its worth every penny.

Good beginner's guitar...

By Zach

from Manteca, CA

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

I bought the guitar 2 years ago, and it survived several gigs with my band, very hard to put dents in this baby. Overall, it's a very well made instrument, the pickups are decent, no real complaints, but if you're not just playing in your room, or to pass the time, you may want to upgrade to something more high-end. The tremolo falls out of tune all by itself, and is more of a hassle than a blessing. Other than that, I'd absolutely recommend this guitar to any of my friends, (in fact, the other guitarist I play with bought one after hearing mine compared to his warlock).

great

By HappyHeadbanger

from Stockton, CA

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

I got this guitar after hearing great reviews. It sounds great and has a cool look. Even though I'm a beginner, my brother tried it out for me and he loved playing with it, especially at his band practices. I think he's jealous of my guitar but he says he's perfectly fine with his Epiphone. I'm glad I got this guitar.

Just Okay.

By Mitch

from Antioch, CA

Comments about Ibanez RG120 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is okay. The neck is awesome, and the pickups are good. But whenever i play the third string ninth fret, the thing buzz's more than a bee. And one of the screws on the tremlo system came loose and when i tryed to tighten it, it striped. i like how thin the neck is though. stays in tune okay.
