Purchased from: cascio interstate

Sound — 10
I'm a metalhead and this guitar is great for the soloing and low heavy stuff, but it certainly isn't limited to that. it's got a beatiful acoustic clean tone that can really be utilized by blues and bluegrass players as well as others. Great sustain especially for a bolt-on neck, which allows you to go far with tremolo dives and pinch harmonics. for the metalhead Who try this product, I run mine through a Marshall amp using nothing but an Ibanez Smashbox Distortion and a Dunlop Crybaby wah, and my goodness, it's an orgasmic sound.

Overall Impression — 10
Its sound is amazing and versatile. It's built to withstand life in the studio or on the road. Perfect for my metal destruction and it didn't burn a hole in my pocket. It's my Ibanez RG370DX and I'll tell you right now, if I make it as a famous musician one day, this is the guitar you're gonna see me with.

This is a take-anywhere Guitar, in the studio, on the stage, wherever. The RG370DX has a strong neck and a chip-resistant body, this beast can take a beating. The hardware checks out too, although I'll be replacing my pickups with something more specific for metal use, I would definately rely on the standard pickups in concert.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Everything on this guitar was intact and inthe right places on the beutiful black, polished, finished body, doing was it was supposed to do correctly, no problems here.

Like most RG bodies, each curve and cut away has a smooth yet jagged feel and the contoured basswood body means it won't weigh you down. A beautiful 24 jumbo fret rosewood fretboard graced with a shark tooth inlay, allows limitless exploration. As far as electoric setup, it's equiped with Ibanez stock pickups in the humbucker-single-humbucker style. Then you got ur volume and tone knobs along with a 5 way selector. it's all topped off with the Ibanez trademark edge pro locking trem.

    i got my rg370dx last week, for some reason mine came with dimarzio pickups:S IM NOT COMPLAINING! its an awsome guitar the fret inlay n the white binding around the fret board makes it look real blingin also the tremolos great to use but restringing n retuning takes way too long
    i got mine prob around 3 months ago...by far the sweetest guitar i've owned. it plays everything...rhcp to ac/dc. its kickass!!
    Ok. With the tuning problem, you need to tune it with the lock loose then tighten it properly. If you do that, then it shouldnt go out of tune.
