Hello everyone, im new to the site so sorry if im breakin any rules in this post.

So i went over to my local "Quality" guitar dealer on saturday. its the kinda place where a squier bullet would be listed for $500

i had just recieve a $280 check and i walked in fully expecting to come out with a sad excuse for an instrument.

Long story short, I asked the owner what a good guitar would be in the $250 range, and much to my suprise and elation he pointed at brand new Ibanez Rg5ex1!!! the only problem was that when you have the pickup selector all the way forward toward the neck its a little weaker than the other positions.

I bought it for a total of $269 repair included , and was a little suspicious because ive seen it on MF for $500. i took it to a buddy who works at a guitar store and he said it was in perfect condition and it didnt need to be set up at all.

I love this axe, and have easily put in 22 hours of play time.


ps. Anybody have a good idea for a name for it.

in scotland they call carbonated drinks 'juice' so you would say a can of juice for example. But they call poop jobbies, so their take on things doesn't count.

Name it "I'll eventually grow to hate the edge III"


But all kidding aside that's a good deal on a solid guitar my friend.Just be careful about the edge III since it's made of soft metal and can wear out pretty easily.The bridge aside,it's a nice guitar,and at that price I doubt you could find much better.

Oh! I forgot about a name.

I'm thinking "Eleanor" because the guitar color reminds me of the Mustang from "Gone in 60 Seconds"

Ahh very nice,that takes a lot of the negatives away from the overall guitar then.If you're using a good amp already I'd suggest getting some upgrade pickups like DiMarzios or Duncans for it.If you're using a small solid state amp,then I'd suggest getting a new amp as your next rig upgrade.

As far as the Edge 3, you could always just block off the trem and treat it as a hardtail.

To tell the truth, i like the stock pickups, they are kinda springy and punchy kinda like Hendrix's Little Wing or Pearl Jam's Yellow Ledbetter.
