Plays like a dream

By Glen Meloy

from Austin, TX

I've been a leisure-time player (i.e. I just play by myself at home) for over 20 years. I decided it was time to upgrade from my old cheap guitar and finally get the "nice" guitar I always wanted. I wasn't going to go crazy on a $2k Les Paul, but I was well prepared to spend $600 or more on a good guitar. After spending all day playing many different guitars (including some $1000 Gibsons and Fenders) at two different music stores, I ended up liking this cheap $300 Ibanez better than all of them. It just plays like a dream - the neck is super slim and fast, the action is low, and the body balances nicely on my knee. Plus it looks nice with its natural stained wood finish. I'm sure the sound snobs will claim it has low quality pickups etc, but it sounds fine to me. I couldn't be happier with it. I saved so much money on the guitar that I bought one of those cool Yamaha THR amps with the rest of the money.

Your paying for the wood not quality.


from Auburn, WA

I picked this up since I don't own any Ibanez guitars. This is solid mahogany, and the wood is nice, but the quality is paint on headstock sloppy. Frets need some serious dressing. They are jumbo and really need some polishing too. The nut is about the worst I have seen on a production guitar. My high E keeps popping out. I would change it or just cut it myself, but this is going back. I have too many nice guitars to go out and spend another $1000+ to get a decent playing guitar. I have played Squire and Epi's that are built better for less. The sound I kind of like because it's so different from my other guitars. Kind of hard to describe. If you want a guitar that you can put some time and another $200 or so, go for it. If not just go get a squire or Epi.
