Sound — 8
The sound fits my style perfectly. My style is rock. I have a Vox Valveronix 50 watt, and when I plug in my Ibanez with its humbucker, it sounds killer! You can play it clean, or you can play it dirty, it will produce beautiful sounds no matter what. It provides a nice warm sound, partly due to teh mohogany body.
Overall Impression — 10
This guitar is amazing. I could've purchased a Gibson LP but I'm glad that I purchased my Ibanez. If it was stolen I would buy it again. And again. This is the guitar to buy. You know how they say that the player makes the guitar? In this case, the guitar makes the player.
Reliability & Durability — 10
I would play this guitar at a gig anyday. I've had mine for 3 years and I never had to take it in for service or repairs. Everything is tight and nothing is loose. No wires have shorted out. This guitar was defiently built to last.
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
Everything is perfect, right out of the box it sounded great. I just tuned it and pluged it in. There were no flaws, the action was just perfect, and the pickups were amazing.
