Comments about Ibanez RG series RG450MB Electric Guitar:

I enjoy this guitar very much. The finish (candy apple red model) is absolutely spectacular and pops. The pickups are really good too. Has a great lead sound when the pickup selector is down all the way toward the bridge. However, the maple neck, while very pretty, doesn't feel too good. The fact that the neck is unfinished and that the frets feel "grindy" when bending the string are two downers to this guitar. But the rest of it is great. Definitely great for shredding. What I would call a great intermediate guitar.

Be prepared for that finicky Edge III tremolo, though. If you have never owned a Edge III or Floyd Rose equipped guitar, I suggest you look at some forums before you know what you're getting into. Setting up this guitar properly upon arrival is a must. An added cost, but a necessary one if you don't want tuning issues.

    I enjoyed this guitar very much. It plays really nice and what I think is a solid tone and bite for the price tag.
