The first thing a person notices when they see this guitar is that it is very different from Ibanez's typical S, RG or X series guitar. Essentially this guitar looks like a combination between the RG and the S series. It is the thinnest guitar I have ever played and some people like that, but others don't. The neck shares the same description as the body: extemeley thin, perfect for slides, however some people may not like this type of neck because of how extremely thin it is. I have had this guitar in tunings as low as drop B and as high as standard. This guitar handles all of them well and the pickups sound very nice on all of these. The versitility is incredible. I have a Gibson Les Paul and i find that i can get far more tones from this guitar because of 3 pups and coil tapping. The tone controls and volume are very responsive. One thing to remember is to read the manual before you change the strings, there is an auto string cutting system that may seem unusual so some players. I do have a few issues with it. First of all I sometimes have string buzzing with some of my higher strings, I a not sure what is causing this or how to fix it, but I am sure it can be taken care of with a simple tune up. Another thing about this guitar is how extremely unique all of the hardware and tremolo systems are. I find this tremolo system the smoothest I have ever played, however it is not as extreme as a Floyd Rose system. The tremolo system is adjustable to determine how much the Tremolo arm is able to move up or down. Some players may not like the fact that there is no locking tremolo. If your style involves extreme Tremolo arm usage, you might prefer an Ibanez RG. However for light Tremolo usage, it stays in tune relatively well. The last thing to remember with this guitar is have patience. Everything on this guitar is handmade, custom, or completely new. So when installing strap locks, replacing strings, changing pups, or doing other structural modifications, please have patience.
I ordered this guitar new and received it a couple days ago and it is nearly flawless! I ordered the BEAUTIFUL Dark Sunset Burst finish which looks better in person than in the picture. This guitar basically plays itself. The action fit and finish are near perfection, and there is an obvious amount of detail put into this guitar. It is also super versitile and handles all styles of play greatly. You really can't go wrong with this guitar, no matter what style you are into. Also, Its SUPER thin and contoured to your body, which looks stunning. Im a proud owner of an Ibanez prestige, and can't fit everything I have to say into one review, its just that great!
This is one of the nicest guitar I've ever played. Even though I don't owned one yet, but planning on getting one. This guitar has a real nice tone to it, the most amazing tone I ever heard. A good feature is that the volume knob is a switch between humbucking mode and single-coil mode. Which I think is a pretty good idea, a two-in-one? The part I kinda don't like about this guitar is that is super thin. But overall, great tone.
This is simply the most versatile guitar I've played and it's the Best GUITAR I've EVER PLAYED. Every thing from the locking tuners, the balance of the instrument, everything pulls through. Now I can basically dial in any tone I can think of without any hassle, and it's just gorgeous. If your in the market for a versatile guitar , don't choose any substitutes, pick the SV!!!!
