Sound — 8
I use my Ibanez GRX20, Behringer HB01 (wah pedal), Behringer X V-AMP (multi-effects), and my Behringer GM108 amp. The sound is alright for my musical styles, I play a wide range of rock, metal, and a little blues. I would like to change the pickups though, the sound is a missing a lil' "somethin' somethin'", but for the overall sound I give it an 8, because the pickups aren't noisy, and the knobs don't make that annoying scratching sound when they are adjusted.
Overall Impression — 9
Well, I worked all summer to get guitar gear, but unfortunately I had to buy school clothes, so I used what I could to get another guitar, I came across this beast and decided it's what I wanted, and I must say I don't regret this purchase. If this was lost/stolen, I would save the money and buy another Ibanez, unfortunately they don't make the RG370 anymore, they now have the RG370DX, I think I would be happy with that model, since the only differences are the newer model bridge, and I think the pickups are upgraded, it has sharkfin inlays, and the colors are different. I compared it to numerous guitars in it's price range, but since I already owned an Ibanez and knew that their guitars are great for me, I picked this one. The only thing I wish it had was different pickups, even though the ones it comes with are decent.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar is very reliable, just be sure to give it proper care/maintainance and I'm sure you'll enjoy this axe for many years to come. I can't say anything for the strap buttons, when I ordered this guitar I ordered DiMarzio ClipLocks and put them on both of my guitars. The finish on this guitar is a beauty, it hardly shows fingerprints, and I haven't found any scratches, people have commented me on how "pretty" the color (Moonshadow Grey) is.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
This guitar was pretty well set up, the only problem I had was the bridge, it didn't stay in tune for long, but it just took a little breaking in, then it stayed in tune as locking bridges as these have a reputation for. And also, the neck is very fast. I haven't noticed any flaws on the guitar, and I've had it since the end of June, or beginning of July, roughly 6 months.
Features — 10
This guitar has 24 frets, a rosewood fingerboard, a Wizard II neck, an Edge Pro II tremolo bridge, pickups are H/S/H, I believe they are Powersound pickups, 1 volume knob, 1 tone knob, and a 5-way selector.
