Overview

The Ibanez XPT700 is a neck-thru constructed guitar that just screams metal from the first moment you see it. With a deep double-cutaways, 4-fin body shape and beveled edges, it's also comfortable to play. Chameleon finishes change colors with the light.

Two DiMarzio U.S.A made pickups provide tons of clear, powerful tone, and an Edge III bridge combined with a locking nut gives you killer dive bombing without the intonation hassles.

Sharktooth inlays and top-shelf hardware complete the look.

this guitar rocks!! i love the tone on this guitar, its body shape, its playability, and of course, the paint! for some, the playability may be a bit off, but i own another radically shaped guitar so i'm used to the feel. the one thing i dont like as much, is the locked tuners. it's kind of a hassle to unscrew things when you have a problem, but that is its only downer. If you are looking for an all around awesome guitar, buy the XPT700.

I am not impressed. Sure, It looks cool, the paint chips easy tho. Its comfortable to play. It takes a while to set the bridge and when you lock the tuners the top 2 strings are raised even higher making it impossible to get spot on with tuning. when you use the fine tuners it messes with the bridge and sends everything else out of tune. Aside from that It sounds like a beast and plays like a god. action is a bit high.

speechless

By Dr. Shredmaster

from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Comments about Ibanez XPT700 Xiphos Electric Guitar:

this is the greatest guitar ive ever played! the neck being molded to the body is great and its slick so u move aound the fretboard quickly, the wizard 2 neck is thin and amazing, the tremolo keeps tuning no matter how hard you use the tremolo. its the most beautiful guitar ive ever seen to. the chameleon paint looks remarkable, the inverted headstock and sharktooth inlays look sick. beside the fact that it is little top heavy i have no complaints whatsoever. i love dimarzio pickups and these are the greatest dimarzios ive ever heard. i highly recomend this to everyone.

nicee

By PsYcHoPaTh

from snyder, tx

Comments about Ibanez XPT700 Xiphos Electric Guitar:

got my guitar today. found it used for 449, and black. i dont see the strap lock as being too much a problem. the guitar center accidently[i hope] didnt include my tremolo. the guitar is lighter than my other[warlock]. its gonna take me awhile to get used to where the pickups are because i rested my hand on the bridge with my warlock. clean sounds veryyy good, neck is fast, and pinch harmonics are much easy to pull off. overall, a very worthwhile purchase that i hope will last me for quite some time

Love it

By Matt

from Windber, Pennsylvania

Comments about Ibanez XPT700 Xiphos Electric Guitar:

I've had this guitar for a while, the first guitar I got after I had my RG for about four years. I'm very impressed with this guitar and the tones it puts out. I was never really a person that understood the tech parts of the guitar (my RG had a fixed bridge-I do like simplicity) so I was a big worried when I saw the bridge that was on the guitar but it's very easy to understand, even for someone who's new to guitars. The neck is really smooth, so if you're a person that loves to slide you'll really enjoy it. Really, I love everything about this guitar-the design, the hardware, and the amazing tones it puts out. Only downfall would be if you're budget is low then this might be a bit out of your price range (not judging anyone, I'm still paying mine off!)

Metal

By Thor Rising

from thousand oaks, california

Comments about Ibanez XPT700 Xiphos Electric Guitar:

This guitar is sick. Very fast action, looks amazing, comfortable to play, and sounds amazing. Only real downer i found was the stock strings suck. Switch those out and its awesome. You can play it sitting down using the same style as a V shaped guitar (One fin between your legs) or you can simply play it like a traditional guitar. I've played multiple custom metal guitars, and this rates right up there with them for hundreds of dollars less.

One of the best I've ever played!

By John Cooper

from Atlanta, Georgia

Comments about Ibanez XPT700 Xiphos Electric Guitar:

When I arrived at Guitar Center, I went looking around for new guitars that had come in, and I happen to spot this one. And I am so glad I did, because this guitar took me away by storm. After playing JP's music man, several top of the line PRS models, as well as a couple of S series, this guitar definitely ranks up there. But the main thing that spoke to me in this guitar wasn't exactly the body, but it was the pickups. These pickups are very expressive, and are full of character and you can just belt out on them all day. And for those concerned about the body shape, it is actually very playable. I do a lot of Shawn lane wide intervallic stretching when I play, and this guitar totally allows for that kind of playing, and I felt very comfortable playing it.

best guitar ever played

By Curtis

from south jordan, Utah

Comments about Ibanez XPT700 Xiphos Electric Guitar:

this guitar is an amazing axe. id been looking for a guitar to replace my esp ex series when i saw this thing online. i have an ibanez rg that i didnt like too much, so i figured that this would be similar to it, so i never bothered to buy this. That all changed the day i played it. i picked it up at guitar center, and bought it immediately two weeks later. it has the neck of my esp, which i love dearly, and the looks of a real shredding guitar, not to mention the dimarzios sound just like active pickups, with face melting tones, but can also handle clean tones just as well. the mohogany body adds for overall sound and sustain, and the edge three bride never goes out of tune. the neck is lightning fast, the shape is comfortable both sitting and standing, plus it looks sick with the chameleon paint and sharktooth inlays. if you love a guitar that looks sick, can play diversity, and has face melting tones, then get an xpt700 today, you will not regret it

Cool guitar

By GuitarShredder87

from Sidney, Ohio

Comments about Ibanez XPT700 Xiphos Electric Guitar:

This guitar is cool. I'm getting it in a few months. I checked it out at a local shop and its way better in person (the blue chameleon finish). I'm going to get it ordered in black though. The neck is kinda fat but I'm used to it, I like the neck because its painted so it'll be easier to play. Get this guitar if you can afford it and want something different than most common guitar shapes. The inlays on the neck was cool too. The back of the neck was glittery green too and thought that was also cool.

Great Guitar

By T. MUMMY

from Dayton, Ohio

Comments about Ibanez XPT700 Xiphos Electric Guitar:

Hmm so it comes down to this, the guitar itself is amazing in colour as well as the playability and smoothness, the awkwardness of the guitar is bareable, the presence that it brings while on stage makes ppl feel like they are seeing a guitar-work-of-art. however. the only real problem with this guitar is the Edge 3 tremolo, the Edge 3 tremolo is made up of metal and a cheap substance to mimick metal puposely to make the tremolo cheaper, however what i have done with mine is i have taken off the Edge 3 and replaced it with a Floyd Rose since the Edge 3 tends to break in the oddest places (i.e. by the hammer tuners and underneath the actual tremolo body itself). but beside that problem, putting the Floyd Rose on it makes this guitar perfect for metal guitarists or metal enthusiasts.
