play amplified before buying

Very disappointed in this guitar. Bought just on looks (stupid). Electronics didn't work on first one received and when you try to call Ibanez, they have no phone number or email address on their web page so you can't talk to a tech rep.Unable to resolve the problem, had to send it back at an additional shipping cost to me. Guitar looks good but if you've ever played a quality guitar, you know right away this sound doesn't even come close. Playability not great and action high. Will be out an additional cost to have a tech do a setup/neck adjustment. Highly recommend play before you buy. Ibanez - never again for me.


Great guitar

By waipuna23

Wow. Awesome guitar out of the box. Action was great and the preamp and tuner is great. I run this through my Boss AD-5 with reverb and chorus and WOW. Kudos to Justin at MF who helped select this guitaras I needed a balanced rythym guitar and Cocobolo does the trick. I've had a Taylor Koa 314-CE and this suits my style of playing much better


Beautiful in both sound and looks.

I've owned this guitar for year. Since day one it has been the best sounded, best looking acoustic guitar I've ever held. It was not the best playing guitar however, but it did sit around a guitar store hanging on a hook for months before I got it. A quick neck adjustment and it plays excellent.
