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.

Great Buy! Fixed Bridge. Stays in Tune Excellent! I did change the saddles out to ferra glides!!

NO more broken strings... Thninkin of changin to demarzio super disotorion pups although the factory Pups are very nice for the Metal sound! I just like to customize!

24 frets too plent of room to play the bottom of the Neck. The volume control is in a good spot!

doesnt get in the way. Had it for a couple years, seems to be very good quality. Frets are solid. never had a problem with the tuners.. I like th dot inlays too.

It's a nice lookin Guitar I"m sure it would look great on Stage!!

Gets a few scratches without a pickguard but minimal..

Great Deal!!

Budget with a High Quality Feel and Sound

By Damien Fraley

from Wauwatosa, WI

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

Amazing. I've owned an Ibanez RG that I had dropped over $1k on and this one actually sounds better. Wanted a Floyd Rose but I don't really do much with the whammy and I use this one for drop C tuning for a lot of Killswitch Engage. Pickups have a great sound. It could be better on the clean channels but really packs a punch for heavy riffs. Eventually replacing them with an EMG 81 and an 85. This guitar's body is pristine and feels like an $800 guitar. For $299.99 its quite a steel. Even if you're an experienced player, don't be hesitant to drop the money on this one. Trust me. You'll be happy you did.

Really good guitar for the price

By eric rivers

from virginia

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

Read features above...I hate the body, it has a sharp edge on the top that will cause an abrasion on your right forearm....how could the miss this simple problem? Baffling....
OK, here's the only review you need to read. .Here'r the good points... Great looking guitar! Really thick smudge proof finish. Stays in tune because of the ibanez headstock, strings stay straight to the tuning pegs. No angle like a jackson, or esp. Stays in tune. Pick ups are pretty good. Here's the bad...The pickups get a great metal sound, but not a good reggae or clean strat sound. Basically a singe coil in the the neck position or a coil-tap would have done the job. Now here's a real big problem. The top of the body has a sharp edge, so as you strum the guitar your right forearm scrapes along body, which is really annoying and somewhat painful. I had a fender-startacoustic that did the same thing. You'd think in this day and age the designers would fix such a problem, amazing to me that they still make guitars with this design flaw. I want to take a sander and round the top edge, but I know it would ruin the finish. Guess Ill just sell this guitar. It's really ashame because this guitar would be a 9 or 10 rating if it didnt have the sharp edge at the top of the body. Come on guys, what were the designers thinking, it's like they didnt even test it out before the produced guitar...I have a JS 1000 Ibanez, which is about quadruple the price of this, so I really like Ibanez, just wish it didnt have the sharp edge. Try playing this guitar for longer than an hour, and you could have an abrasion on your right forearm. That's no joke and it really makes playing uncomfortable. Too bad, I really thought the Ibanez design team would get such a obvious problem.

Small price, small flaws, huge sound

By ROBERTO CASTANEDA

from Donna, Tx.

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

This guitar does the job. Beginners will love it, intermediates will be well satisfied with this shredder. I've had this guitar for 4 yrs now. Let me get the minor flaws out of the way: buzzing. Out of the box the guitar buzzes like crazy. There are adjustments that can be made (read the manual!!) to counter the buzzing on this guitar, however you will not eliminate it completely. Nonetheless, buzzing really doesn't matter cause during amped play it's non-existing. There more pros to this guitar that make it a reasonable buy. The emg DESIGNED pickups offer a very good crunch and sustain ideal for rock, but this axe is still versatile and allows for other music styles. The bridge and the tuning pecks are excellently built. This guitar will stay in tune. Action at the neck is good and comfortable picking is possible due to the position of the pickups. Buy the guitar, well, try it out first and come to love it! No regrets here.

Simply Amazing

By Marc Lemaire

from Maine

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

Amazing, if you are looking for a budget guitar that plays like a Telecaster and built like a rock, don't look any further then this guitar.
I love the fact that this guitar is non-trem. I was looking for this type of guitar because a trem is just distracting. I gave it an eight because the PUPs aren't the greatest, but they still rock.
Hands down the best quality for this price range.
I've played dozens of guitars and own half a dozen, this is by far my favorite.

WOW!!!!!

By Austin Lange

from Temecula CA

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

First let me say that i am a very amateur guitarist, but my old "generic brand" guitar wasn't cutting it for me. The guitar center closet to my house carried this guitar, and i used to go at least once a week to play this guitar, because who can deny the white with black trim? I found this guitar to sound incredible, so i set out to get it. After remembering my money and my savings account and as a birthday present, I FINALLY GOT IT!!! Thank goodness for the Labor Day Sale they had! This guitar sounds incredible and plays beautifully! i have no problems with my guitar! Next, I have to replace my "generic brand" amp that came with my old guitar! (looking at line six amps)

Comments about Ibanez RG2EX1 Electric Guitar:

This is the first guitar I actually spent money on and it really doesn't disappoint. The pickups are pretty good, but I've seen better. Great intermediate guitar, especially if you like heavy chunk and shred.
