It's very good to play musics by big musicians like Steve Vai; John Petrucci; Joe Satriani. And That sounds really cool. I use usually a LINE6 Spider Vavle because I can make her scream easily. You can easily get a high scream if you use the tremolo with an harmonic. And is perfect to make that Van Halen Noises.
Overall Impression — 9
I play Satriani, John Petrucci, Steve Vai, Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix and more. But it's good to Richie Blackmore, Jimmy Page, Jeff Beck, David Gilmour, AC/DC, Paul Gilbert, Metallica, Eric Clapton, Zakk Wylde, Steve Ray Vaughan, Slash and a few more. I love that you slide in her perfectly, and I like her bridge. I bought her with my Line 6 Spider Valve. First I bought the Ibanez and I needed an amplifier, a good amplifier. And when I try the Line 6 with my Ibanez I new that they where made for each other. It has all that I like. And I have to sell it because I need money and I don't have another choice but if I could I'll stay with her.
Reliability & Durability — 7
If it is well tuned and with the bridge aligned, yes. The hardware will last. The hardware will last because all the guitars are handmade and i never had problems with any part of the hardware. The strap buttons are solid. I have another guitar, a PRS, and once, my strap button fell. Never hapenned with Ibanez. Yes we can deppend on it, I, no doubt, use it without any backup or trouples. Great finnish.

Really Well. But I had to change the strings and that was a problem because of the bridge. So I do not touch it and I take 'Her' to a professional and she's really great now absolutely awesome. The Pickups are good but I was to change for DiMarzio Steve Vai Model. Aligned Bridge. What I Know it doesn't have any n't flaws.
