Ibanez: SA120

Sound — 8
It is not noisy on most settings and if you have a descent amp, the guitar is capable of good distortion it would make a great sherdder and an ok jazz guitar it is very versatile.

Overall Impression — 10
The thing I really love about this guitar is the body shape. I would recommend this guitar to any one looking for a decent electric guitar it is a versatile guitar capable of many good sounds I play Santana and BB King as well as AC/DC and Beatles on it and it sounds kick ass when playing these types of music from rock to funk the guitar sounds great!

Reliability & Durability — 10
The guitar seems solid; the guitar could gig with ease. I don't think this guitar will fall apart any time soon it is value for money and I think it will last at least 10 years Ibanez' tend to be good value for money across the board and I can see the guitar is not going to fall apart anytime soon.

Action, Fit & Finish — 9
The guitar is set up in the factory with great strings. The tension low for shredding. There are no obvious flaws; it is a good quality guitar. And it looks great when buffed up with some polish and a rag.

Features — 9
This guitar was built in Korea. It has 22 frets, 21 of them accessible for comfortable playing. With a solid top, sleek body design, versatile hum and slim fast Ibanez maple SA-series neck chrome machine heads, mahogany body with quilted maple top volume and tone controls, 5-way selector, floating bridge for tremolo bar lovers.
