Sound — 10
It suits my musical style great because my style is very broad and this guitar can cover anything a 6 string solid body should. I have only used it with a small Fender practice amp and it still sounds amazing, rich full sound, bright if you want it bright, I like it.
Overall Impression — 10
I play many styles and this matches all of them, been playing for 3 years, I also own an Epiphone g400 and the playability on this is better for me, I'm not really into baseball bat necks, the thin necks are just more fun. If it were lost I would get a 7 string similar to this one, I chose this guitar over others because of it's stunning looks, the 24 frets, and I wanted the x shape.
Reliability & Durability — 10
This guitar will withstand Live, the hardware will last the strap buttons are solid. I can depend on it, the finish is tough and beautiful. It's reliable, it's durable, nothing wrong at all with this guitar. The hardware is good. It's Ibanez what else can I say?
Action, Fit & Finish — 10
the guitar was set up nice, the action was low like I like it, the pickups were fine, everything top notch, it did have a small scratch on one of the fins but the company was fine about it and I don't blame Ibanez, I think it was the fault of the reseller.
Features — 10
Made in 2007, in China, 24 jumbo frets, 25.5 scale neck thru maple/walnut neck, it has a cool chameleon finish available in either a blue/green or red/gold I got the blue/green and it really looks amazing. Plays nice, fast, the x shape is sort of cool, really thin body, with a thin Ibanez neck. The edge III tremolo works as good as any Floyd Rose imo, DiMarzio pickups with 3 way selector.
