Sound — 9
I'm using a line6 spider III 15w and this guitar can play a lot of things quite nicely the EMG designed pick ups (named infinity 1 and 2) work greatly bridge pick up gives you a light bright sound and the neck gives you a deep bassey sound. It plays clean very clear but can occasinly distort but very decent clean sound. it's best sound is in the over Drive, this guitar is like a monster a real shred beast. On an over note you can get a blues sound out of it.

Overall Impression — 9
I say this is a great guitar looks nice, pick ups are nice and alos has a very good feel to it. it's just a really nice guitar espically for the price but there may be a few minor flows... But nether the less quite a fanstatic guitar just all you have to do t get use to it at first.

Reliability & Durability — 10
Ibanez are good lasting guitars, and this one is No Doubt, it will a long time I say and will use it at a gig with maybe no back up. You might want to change strings some times but it'll do the job and last for some time and the finish will may need a lot of cleaning (it will get dirty a bit to easy)

Action, Fit & Finish — 9
When I got this guitar it was very good set up, may have to get a bit used to it at first but over all great, tuners are locked in pick ups are adjusted right no scratch marks on the guitar what so ever Also the string are a bit twangy but I start to get the hang of them now.

An rg series guitar with a fixed bridge, bass wood body, rose wood finger borad, reverse head stock and it best features is 2 EMG designed pick ups which will work great and the white strip that outlines the guitar which looks really fancey and nice. This guitar is almost like mick thompsons singnature guitar as well.
