Sound — 10
I mostly play metal/rock/heavy rock, this guitar suits it perfectly. I play it through a Mesa Duel Rectifier and the sound it great. The pickups have no feedback and it has a nice crunchy sound with distortion and very mellow sound on clean. It is a very versatile guitar. You could play most styles of music maybe even jazz.
Overall Impression — 10
This is a perfect match for me. I have been playing 6 years and bought this last year, I also own a PRS Custom 24, Maton MS2000-DLXSD, Fender Tele, Epiphone The Dot and a Mesa Duel, as soon as I saw it I loved the look so I tried it out and it sounded awesome as well so I bought it straight away. I love this guitar and it is perfect for me.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I have played three shows at school and one at a shopping centre with it and it played perfectly. The hardware will defiantely last I've added strap buttons just incase. I could depend on this hting no matter it is a top notch guitar.

Not sure what year it was made, but I'm pretty sure it was made in Japan. It has 24 Frets with awsome cross inlays. Neck-thru construction which is great for easier upper fret access and a better sustain. It has a Falmed maple top with a see-thru-black finish. Lo-TRS II Bridge. The pickups are V7 and V8 humbuckers which give the classic Ibanez tone. Basswood body, Wizard II neck and black hardware. It also has a white binding. Has a 5 way selector, 1 volume and 1 tone knob.
