I purchased this guitar because I wanted an Ibanez with a fixed bridge. So far i am very happy with this guitar. The wizard II neck is so comfortable and the emg designed pickup is not bad at all. The neck pickup is a little weak but if your using this for metal its not a big deal. I love the comfort and playablity that this guitar offers and i would refer this guitar to anyone looking in this price range. Great value for sure.

3 Stars... The Truth is.. When This first came out I read the reviews and it looked Great.. thats because they only show the good reviews.. so if your a beginner and you want a decent guitar....this might be a good choice... HOWEVER... The EMG pickups... are not Real EMG's there Ibanez designed Pickups.. They just Look like EMG's. To be honest.. They sound.. wimpy.. if you are looking for something soft but kinda meaty.. this is it... but If your into Punk.. Metal.. whatever..I learned this the hard way.. The distortion will never sound as good as it will on another guitar.. the pickups do not put out enough.. there PASSIVE.... NOT ACTIVE.. there completely different. If your really looking for a edgy tone ..keep looking.. this wont have it no matter How much distortion you use... It wont sound very Hardcore at all .. But If this will be your first guitar.. get it.. if you have had other s.. Keep looking. .......... Also the wiring is the pickup outlet is not done well.. after a few months.. you may have to jiggle the cord to get the sound.. or tape it. DO NOT TWIST THE NUT ON THE JACK.. it will break the wire inside.. (learned the hard way) Also.. They are very Stylish which is what sparked my attention in the begining. .. but theres better out there

Ibanez rules

By A maN

from Santa Ana, CA

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

This is the best guitar I have ever used. IT is easy to play, makes the perfect sound and looks so tight. I mean it, I am writing this report mostly because I had a Shecter Oman 6 and it sucked. the reviews for it were very encouraging so I bought it. I traded it in for this Ibanez and there was a huge differance and they both cost 300 dollars. THis thing can play any type of music.

Awesome Guitar

By ibanezlover77

from some place in Michigan

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is awesome. I went to guitar center and tried many guitars from $200 to $400 and this was the best. I took it to my teacher and he absolutely loved he didn't want to give it back to me. The quality is amazing and so is the sound, it can play any kind of music all for $300!!!!!!!!! I love this guitar and any body with the budget of up to $500 should by this guitar. Best guitar out there for the money, hands down. Don't just sit there and read this review, GO BUY THE GUITAR!!!!!!!!!!!

Absolutely Amazing

By Brooke

from Houston, Texas

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

An absolutely Amazing guitar! I've owned it for around 2 years now and I've tried all the other guitars (ESP, Gibson, Les Paul, Strats, Other RG series, etc.) and they don't simply compare to this one. This is the only electric guitar I accept to play on. The neck is amazingly comfortable and thin so its real easy to shred on. The pick ups are amazing and I love that this guitar has 24 frets. It's also very easy to move your hand up on the high frets (12-24) with complete ease. Playing Metallica songs on this guitar is no problem as long as you know the song. Ive played all sorts of songs on this guitar. It's perfect for almost any song. Even for a clean sound its great. It's price is also amazing and when I first got it I thought I wouldn't get as good quality as an ESP or Les Paul because it was cheaper, but this is actually much better quality. I love it to death and I suggest if you want it, you should get it now before Ibanez discontinues this guitar since it's a special edition.

BUY THIS AXE!

By Mitch

from kalamazoo MI

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

I had an Ibanez RG350dx and loved it. but I wanted an RG without a trem, cuz I like to keep things simple. I played this axe at my local guitarcenter and it was sweet.EMG disigned pickups sound great for metal. shreding on this thing is effortless. I was rippin up the tornado of souls solo in no time. the wizzard II neck is awesome. stays in tune great.

Great guitar

By Martin

from Washington DC

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

Great guitar for the price, indeed I previously owned 2 Mex Strats and this baby is comparable in every sense and more, it stays beautifully in tune and that was a frequent complaint I had with the Strats. Highly recomended, I love it.

RG2EX1

By Nathan

from Burlington, VT

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

Just recieved my Jewel Blue RG2EX1 yesterday, found that it was packaged very well for shipping which was a concern of mine when I ordered it. No worries there though. When I first opened the box and got my first look at the guitar, I was blown away with how attractive this guitar is, especially in jewel blue. This is my third guitar, the first being a cheap Fender starcaster strat and the second being a Ibanez AX7221 7-string. This is a huge step up from both in quality, looks and sound. The best part of the guitar I would say has to be the wizard II neck, absolutely amazing. Very comfortable to play on and my playing speed increased because of it. The sound output with this guitar is also very very good. No hum or noise when not playing and when you are playing the tones put out by this thing would make any metal god happy. Overall I am more than pleased with this purchase. If i didnt know the price of this guitar and was told to guess how much it cost, I would have guessed between $500-$600 due to the good quality and craftsmanship of this guitar. Very highly reccomended for anyone looking for an attractive and lightweight metal/rock guitar. It will play clean notes very well also but cranking the gain is what makes this baby shine! If someone stole it I would hunt them down with dogs and tear off their arm before I beat them with it. Very good guitar at a great price.

Great Guitar

By Odd Todd

from OKC, OK

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

This is a great guitar for a great price. I had an Ibanez RGX a few years back and I am really glad the wife got me this one for Xmas 2009. Fast neck, keeps in tune very well (even with super slinkys). I'm no rock star by any means but you can tell quality when you are playing and this guitar delivers. If you want a great guitar at a great price, I would say look into this one. Get more than a 10A practice amp though.

Great All Around Guitar

By Aaron

from Portsmouth, Virginia

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

Built to last. I've played many guitars before, and this guitar is among one of the best values you will find. I play progressive styles and it holds up great, almost never goes out of tune. The black with white trim is a classic look. Buy this guitar, it will make you play better. ;)

Great Buy

By mike

from South Elgin, IL

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

In comparison to other Ibanex guitars this one is really good, considering that you get the sound that you pay for and them some, not to mention the beautiful glossy finish where if you look in the guitar you can see yourself. This is a great guitar, especially for those who play metal, harcore even normal rock.

Ibanez is amazing!

By TheAlmost

from Montgomery, TX

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is easily the best guitar i've ever played with. I've had it for 3 weeks now and it makes me feel stupid for ever using epiphone! But this guitar is so easy play...you won't regret buying it. And i have a small little crate GTD15 amp and this guitar makes it sound amazing. This guitar has a really smoothe sound and I plan on keeping it for a long time.

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

This guitar is the bomb!!!! I have had it for a couple months, and i have played many gigs with it, and I have never had a problem with it. It has a mello, clean sound, but also delivers a great distortion sound. This guitar is great for every kind of music. I play in a metal hair band, an alternative rock and funk group, and also a jazz ensemble, and works great for all groups. BUY THIS GUITAR!!!!!!

5 Years Later...

By Craig

from Summerville, SC

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

Got this guitar Christmas of '04. Almost 5 years ago. I'm happy to say it's going to make 5 years. Still plays just as smooth as she did 5 years ago when I didn't even know what a pickup was. This axe will last you forever. The pickups are a little on the weak side, but honestly, for top of the line pickups you'd end up paying over half the cost of the guitar to begin with. So, for the price, not bad at all. Still clear, still strong, just not as strong as some other more expensive ones. Mine will hold its tune for days, literally. Sustain is great, I haven't had to modify it at all or repair anything in 5 years, so obviously build quality is great, and I've never had to call customer service so I wouldn't know. The best service out there is service you never have to use, right? Bottom line: This guitar is built to last. It was my first electric, and I'd recommend whether it's your first or hundredth, don't pass this one up. Add it to your arsenal. You won't regret it.

A gold standard

By BWells

from Orlando, FL

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

I went into GC to look at some effects pedals. Consumed by the wall of amazing guitars, I started to play axe after axe. My greedy little hands landed upon this treasure. I wasn't even in the market for a new guitar, but after playing this thing, I just couldn't leave the store without it. A few months ago, I made a promise to myself to stop buying guitars that weren't top of the line. But after picking up this guitar, I realized that I had been playing for two hours. I thought I could play all night, so I decided that I WOULD play all night, but at my house with this guitar. This guitar made me WANT to play the guitar. The price is right, the feel and sound are amazing. Definitely happy with my decision.
