The new X-Series Falchion gets its name from a single-edge European sword to signify the 3-D, extra-pointy look of the crystal cut body. The deep crystal cut on the neck joint gives you greater access to upper frets while the thin and fast Wizard III neck ensures articulate fleet-fingered sweeping. High output CAP-LZ humbuckers offer molten clarity controlled by the sublime simplicity of a single volume control and 3-way switch.

So, I've been looking for a new guitar for a few years now, I've been trying to find one with a combo of affordability, playablilty, and of course, it HAD to look like a boss! Being a fan of Ibanez already, I ordered this guitar over a Jackson X series, I went with the right choice! Unlike most crazy shaped guitars, you can play this sitting down as comfortable as a Strat shape. It's not very heavy so playing while standing up is also very comfortable. The pickups are phenomenal and the tone from the guitar itself is incredible! I also love how there are no tone nobs on it. For a metal guitar, you don't need them, they just get in the way. The fretboard, like just about any Ibanez, is perfect for shredders. As for the Edge III tremolo, it is a great inexpensive bridge for this guitar, keeps the strings in tune and doesn't break them when you use the bar. My only complaints are that the neck is just a bit thicker than what I'd expect for a metal looking guitar, doesn't really affect playing though. The wood is easily breakable at the edges though, there's already a bit of a dent from where I barely bumped the long wing. So if you want a funky shaped, but awesome guitar this is it!!! Just be careful with those edges!!
I bought this guitar a few months ago. It is very nicely made and the craftsmanship is very good despite this guitar being made in China. This guitar plays very good especially for the price. I own many other higher end guitars so I can tell you that the neck is nice, but you will have to do some setting up. When I got my guitar, the strings were relatively far away from the fretboard so I had to do some adjusting. The pickups on this guitar are not particularly good. They dont really stand out or anything so I decided to change them for a Dimarzio Tone zone and Air Norton. Now this guitar sounds so much better !! It is perfect for shred and the body shape looks really cool. I would recommend this guitar to anyone who is looking for a cool shaped guitar that plays pretty good.
I own this guitar and it's great! Looks absolutely killer (duh)and sounds just as wicked. Love the satin finish, super fast and great sound. It's got a crunchy mid-range tone I didn't expect but it sounds awesome. The guitar is extremely comfortable as well, sitting or standing. Toggle switch is a bit awkward to hit while in the middle of playing but not a deal-breaker. Was rather dismayed initially (before purchase) that there was a single volume knob, but after a moment of thought analyzing my genre and style of playing it is irrelevant as I always play with the tone cranked on both p/u's anyway. Originally I planned to get this guitar to only look cool with the intent of replacing p/u's with EMG's as well as some other upgrades/mods. Unnecessary! This guitar blew me away with the sound, look, and feel. It's a great instrument stock, and that's how I'll keep it! I read the few other reviews available at the time and saw the common theme of no case which stinks, I'd expect an axe this wicked to come with a case from the factory but no. Not knowing if/when Ibanez plans to make a fitted case I decided to find one despite others' hardship in searching... my idea-bass cases!
Sat down with this beast yesterday at the guitar center in holland and let me tell you, the floyd reminded me of Children of Bodom's Alexi Laiho 600 and has the same fire breathing sound as the Alexi Scythe 600. I believe that Ibanez made this master piece specifically for Metal mongers because of the extremely fast neck radius and fret comfort. I have wide palms and shorter fingers but I played some COB with the ease and comfort of the 80's style shred necks. Just a helpful tip, this beastie sounds mouthwatering coming out of a line 6 150 watt! Great job Ibanez for another great instrument! P.S. The body shape is very god for sitting down to play also:)
I love this guitar. The tone is amazing and it can't be better. The ONLY thing I have a problem with though, is finding a case for this awesome thing. I can't get a case that this thing will fit in. Being the lead guitarist in a band, it's a really tough thing for me to take this thing around. Other than that, it's great. If you find a case, please post.
This guitar is really nice. I just got it a month ago. The body is a very nice size and very comfortable to play sitting down or standing up. I have the flat black version and it is a very good looking guitar the entire thing is flat black including the headstock and the back of the neck. The fretboard doesnt have any indicators on it so if you are a new guitarist be aware the only indicators are the top reference points. The hardware seems nice it features a Wizard 3 neck which is a fast neck for all those metal shredders out there. I really like the different pickup toggle location since i struggle getting to them fast enough sometimes. This guitar only has on dial for volume no tone dial. Overall great guitar, and can be very diverse from cleans to heavy distortion, and the look is beautiful. I highly recommend this guitar.
