Sound — 9
I play alot of melodic metal(the eyes of a traitor, Eternal lord) and to be quite honest the trem wont handle most drop tunings without some serious messing around. And if you don't know what you're doing you meet get a little kafuffled. I picked this guitar up today and I've already speant about 8 hours getting it how I want it. I'm running the guitar through my line 6 spider 2 combo at the moment, and it sounds great. The clean tone is also beautiful, and rich. I think too many people have too much of an anti stock view towards pickups. I think these have a beautiful sound and very unique.
Overall Impression — 10
I think this guitar is great, the unique yellow finish and dotted mape fretboard really atracted me to this guitar. For anyone wanting to play in Standard tuning just go for it. I think this is the best guitar you could pick up in this price range. And yes I would deffinately buy this guitar again if I lost it. I may have sounded to critisizing on the trem, but that's only because it was hard to get my head around. Now I've sorted it it sounds and feels amazing!
Reliability & Durability — 10
I'm only giving it a 10 because I've only had it for the past 12 hours or so, I will write another review after I'd gigged with it, but judging from what it's like I don't think I'll be having any problems with it!
Action, Fit & Finish — 8
I'm going to have to give it an 8 but that's only because of my playing style. For anyone wanting to tune to Standard or drop d, the guitar should serve them fine with no major alterations, but for anyone who wants to play around with those lower tunings, be prepared to get your hands dirty!
Features — 10
I think that the guitar was maded in early 2009 in Indonesia. It's the Ibanez superstrat style signature RG. It has 24 Jumbo frets on a wizard neck.(which is beautiful)And also a maple dotted fretboard. It has an Edge 3 Floyd Rose style tremelo. Not sure what the pickups are, they're Ibanez something's. I got a free lead and two alan keys to adjust the trem, neck and action of the guitar.
