The Ibanez SZ720FM. PRS feel at a fraction of the cost. Abalone binding, set in mahogany neck, Duncan designed pickups. I believe they were $700 brand new. I bought mine a while back for $300.

I believe Ibanez only made these for a few years.

Thoughts?

srsly plenty of quality instruments can be found used for a bargain.

calling any single one "the best" anything is completely idiotic.

Wow...a lot of sensitive nellies here today.

Just trying to bring to light a little known guitar that is of great quality for the money. Nothing more, nothing less.

I know you are, but that's where I see this headed. I wouldn't be surprised if it turned into an Agile vs Gibson thread tbh.

No I'm not.

Not saying it isn't a diecent guitar, but it is a low-mid level guitar and in no way at all comparable to a PRS. Every thing on that guitar is inferior to what you will find on my PRS I garantee it

No argument here. Since it's a tough sell to the warden to drop 2 G's on a Custom 24, I guess my Ibanez will have to do for now. My dream guitar, though.

And if you do start looking a PRS guitars, you can get the CE22/24 for $1000ish and sometimes even less. It is basically a striped down bolt-on version of the Custom 22/24.

Yes your right at $300 that is a nice guitar and a diecent deal.

I have to laugh at some people.

I was looking at getting a PRS and a few people were saying that they are overpriced brand that has OK quality but not worth it.

Sometimes I find it hard to take advice from people.

It's one of the better $300 guitars for sure. Guitars have different characters, sometimes a cheaper one will play better than an expensive. Setup is so often overlooked on most new guitars by buyers
