This is a quility instrument in my book. Everything is beautiful and well thought of. I like the feel of the neck...it is a bit smaller than a Les Paul I think. Nice tone to both pick-ups...I did replace the bridge with a gibson Angus Young pick-up and now it's really a killer. The guitar feels and looks more than what ya pay for it...Almost american made quality feeling to me. A REAL VALUE! You'll like it alot, if you like les pauls, but not the weight and price tag of a gibson!!! It's a real fun guitar and I'm glad I got it!
I got it about 3 weeks ago. Have not played it that much. It is @ 2/3 the body size of my Fender Strat (Mexican) but weighs 5.5 lbs more! (It weighs 12 lbs). Still, manageable. It is very loud, in comparison to the Strat. The neck is fast, not as fast as the Strat, still good. The finish and the set-up are great! Looks good, not great. My wife says that it does not look good on me because it looks like a toy guitar due to its size (I am 6' and 195 lbs). It reminded me of how Lindsey B (Fleetwood Mac) looks when he plays his small electric guitar. It has a great sustain (better than the Strat).Overall, it is a very good guitar, excellent for the price, considering that my wife will not let me spend $1,000+ for a Gibson LP and I wanted a guitar with that look, but not an Epi.
I had actually gone into (Unamed Music Store) with the intention of buying a Ibanez 2005 SZ320. I had seen this hanging in the upper racks on previous visits and had strummed it, but never plugged it in. I plugged it in and it's not that it was tons better than the Ibanez 2005 SZ320, but there was a certain refinement too it. After owning it for about a week now, I'm really glad I went with this guitar. This guitar is for people that love Les Paul's, but want something a little lighter, a little more refined, cheaper, etc. Don't get me wrong. I just don't think Les Pauls, and even Epiphones for that matter, are worth the money. The Quality control is almost non-existant sometimes. The wood on mine doesn't have a blemish anywhere, the Gibralter bridge and the fine-tune tailpiece are fantastic. By far one of the best bridge combinations I have ever seen on any guitar. The neck is extremely comfortable, the backside edges have been rounded making it much more comfortable to hold then most Les Paul's. There is also a slope near the neck joint making upper fret access easier. Electronics are nice. The pickups are so-so, but still not bad. The body has a very elegent sculpting too it. The binding is top notch. How many guitars in this price range have you seen with 3 piece binding on the neck and abelone fret inlays? Ultimately, I think the reason this guitar is priced as low as it is for what you get is because it's made in China, versus Indonesia, Japan, etc. Bang for the buck, this is a fantastic guitar.
Beautiful guitar, finest neck I've played, I think. I've bought 2 Ibanez guitars now in the past year, both for $400 or less. What a steal. I would not even look at a Gibson if I had the money for one. This guitar BEGS to be played. Love it!
I've been playing the thing for a while. The action when I first got it was set very low, the strings would smack the frets violently. The Daddario strings were very good but I usually switch out for Super Slinky Ernie Ball. The color is beautiful, mahogany, rosewood fingerboard I believe, the top is flamed maple, quite appealing. Those pickups are very good for Ibanez, at this point I'm going to stick with them. I put The q-Parts straplocks on them, but other than that it has been left alone.The guitar plays great. It sounds fat and sings beautifully. I'd recommend this guitar over the Epiphone guitars, but as for Gibson I'm not too sure...I'd have to recommend this electric. Definitely a bargain for a great product.
I just purchased this guitar at my local music shop, I would have bought it from MF but the price was the same and I didn't have to wait for shipping. This guitar is a dream to play, nice fast neck, notes that seem to sing forever, when distorted this thing growls like a beast. This is one of those guitars that once you own you will not want to part with it. Destined to be a classic.
For the price I'm not sure how Ibanez does it, I owned an Artcore as well, no problems with either guitars. For a long time I wouldn't have even considered an import guitar in this price range. This ARC300 played great right out of the box, I'm talkin all the way to the last fret and the strings are fairly low too, Intonation was spot one, proably the finest factory set up I've ever seen. The finish is great, not a flaw to be found. The tuners are Grover styled no namers but they do a good job and feel solid, the guitar has a quick change tail piece on it with some fine adjustment knobs, very solid hardware. The inlays are a nice touch. I've played guiars that are more resonant than this one but once plugged in it delivers, pickups are not as nice as the Super 58's but are descent, great axe for the money!
I just bought this guitar down here in winnipeg and I must say that this Guitar is just wonderfull. It has an amazing Tone with the fine tuners and I bought 0.11 gauge ernie ball strings and there is very little harmonics but im not much for Harmonics anyways! All in all the neck also is wondeerful as you can more easily use your thumb instead of doing Barre Chords!
I wanted to buy a Gibson LP Standard and ended up with something a lot better, both in quality and price. Japanese product, made in China (who cares anymore), best quality than ANY LP I have seen in the stores over the last 5 years. PU's need replacement, so I ordered burstbuckers. Smooth, sleek, lighter, perfection. Just plug in and play this queen.
This guitar is absolutely amazing. I bought it last October and loved it ever since. Great guitar man. I love it so much!
