This is my first "real" guitar and I've owned it for about year now. The build quality is excellent and the sound is fantastic. I had originally ordered a PRS Paul Allender but because of backorder issues, I changed my order to the RG2250Z, and I'm glad I did. Nothing wrong with a PRS, I just think this guitar's a bit better. I have the black model and the finish is awesome. It would have been awesome if it was available in a flametop or at least some other colors, but I'm satisfied with how it is.What else can I say...great guitar decent price...If I had it to do over I'd buy it again.
I bought this awesome guitar last year, it's my favorite guitar. It has the best rock sound specifically for pulling out unique in your face rock, this guitar basically can play any type of music including heavy metal, hard rock, rock, blues, country; you name it, it can do anything and pull out professional sound you want. It will transform the way you hear or heard your songs being played, this guitar is a must have, get it while you can.
I recently bought this guitar and was really pleased with it. But the first one I had the entire neck was shifting from the body causing frets to buzz and other problems. It sounded great and played great but this was a serious problem. So I exchanged it for another and this one seems to have a properly set neck. I'm still trying to get used to it but overall I love it.If you like to play clean tones you have to basically lower the neck pick up completely into the body. But a good buy and hope it doesn't have problems.
I own the 2550Z and this guitar is awesome. I received it in perfect condition without any flaws what so ever. It has an excellent tone and playability! The edge zero is perfect, with this setup it is easy to tune to drop anything without having to tune the other strings, as you would most other floating bridge setups! EXCELLENT GUITAR.
This guitar was perfect right out of the box. The case is very well molded and solid as a rock. The pickups are pretty ok, but plan to put some Evos in em'. For some reason, the neck pickup appears to be the loudest, and let me tell you...these pickups are SUPER sensitive...they're like a poor-man's Evos in a way...This guitar, overall, is a great combination of Les Paul tone with a touch of that Fender single-coil in the middle...the coolest sounding distortion sounds come from the single-coil combined with either the neck or the bridge. Overall AMAZING guitar, wish they still made the one made out of Poplar.
This one is really well made, I went reviewing several brands and I own a les paul standard, a fender 60 anniversary and some washburns. The tremolo unit is amazing much better than any original floyd rose stays in tune after haaard abuse. Very easy to set up and inteligently crafted. The neck is straight and impecable in every sense, frets well cut, excellent binding, speedy, nice wood and finish is flawless. I have the white one, at first I was not so sure about the color but in person it is beatiful and I am VERY picky about everything so you can be sure that it really is flawless. The pick ups are ok to me, very versatile but if you want something harder change em. I found it very nice, quiet and like a crossbread between strat sound and gibson humbuckers... you need a nice amp if you want screaming distortion though.. but it suits my style very good. I don't give totally 5 stars because may be a nice piezo's will be a blast with this axe...
I just bought this Axe last week. Man this thing is awesome! I don't even want to change the pickups!! I also play an RTG320QRBB and since I got this guitar I cant put it down. it sounds smooth and creamy with the tone down half way, or screams harmonics easily when alot of gain is added. It plays beautifully and the j craft fret work will spoil you forever!! If you got the grand....GET THIS Guitar!!...I got the white one. Also a nice feature is that you can wire up another pickguard and just swap them whenever you want to tweak the sound from stock. I'm gonna experiment with different p-ups.
Have owned PRS, custom shop Fender, Gibson,and for the money one of the best guitars I have played on. Original pickups good, but will probably replace them. Tremelo is best on market and overall workmanship is great. This guitar outshines anything else in the price range and many above it...
What can I say that isn't obvious? The craftsmanship is stunning. I got the Galaxy White, I use white guitars. This is my main guitar. The pickups are pretty dang good, nice and crunchy but they have a soft side for jazz and blues. The Edge Zero is flawless, its better than any floyd I've used and I own a lot of guitars with origional floyds on them. The Basswood is really light but not too light, its also resonant and thats what I demand in the studio. I gave this insturment all fives because thats what it deserves!
I love this guitar.Best guitar I've ever own in a long time.I have Gibson LP,Fender Strat,Schecter Hellraiser FR.in my collections.But non of them came close,as far,as playability,functionality,versatality.The Ibanez RG Prestige can do it all.I took this guitar to my friends birthday party.And the guys who had their Fender Strats deluxe,Gretsch,Gibson LP,were a little jealouse of it.Because of the versatility of my Prestige, I was a combonation of Steve vai,EVH,SRV,ALL PUT IN ONE.I was living it.With my RG Prestige I made them look like time capsules in the bottle,all dress up but no where to go.I was shredding,dive bombing,sweeping,etc.So If you want to play just like our guitar heroes,this is the axe to get.Buy one soon,this is a nice guitar with blows and whistle,more bang for your bucks.
