Ibanez: SA160QMAM

Price paid: $ 494.1

Purchased from: Sound Control

Sound — 8
I play metal and blues, and it suits those styles down to the ground. I use a Marshall 50 watt and it is very quiet on both clean and overdrive. A nice full sound on singlecoil at the neck and a good chunky sound at bridge.

Overall Impression — 8
A very good guitar for any styles of playing. Definitely recommended.

Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar is reliable but I always carry a spare. The finish is absolutely fine and the strap stays where it is.

Action, Fit & Finish — 10
I have had no need to change anything from the way it was in the factory.

Features — 8
This is a 2001 model. 22 frets, with a laminated top. It's got a volume and tone controls with a five way selector. S/S/H...dunno about the pickups. Mahogony body and a maple neck make it easy to play. Tuners are non-locking but guitar still stays in tune great.
