Comments about Ibanez RG series RG450MB Electric Guitar:
For the price this guitar is hard to beat. I typically only ever wanted maple necks on a Fender because I'm not the biggest maple neck fan. Well, this one sounds fantastic. It came with less issues than the RG1070 I bought a week before (they didn't dress all the frets properly, premium treatment my rear!).
I've got the sharktooth/rosewood neck on an RG450DX as well, they sit side by side in my stable and are great to play. I'm spoiled with amazing amps so it would take a tin can to make them sound bad, but the Ibanez pickups in these are hard to differentiate between the typical Prestige/Premium in my S/RG guitars. Honestly, it makes me think buying the 1300-2600 guitars, I'd have been better off just sticking with these less expensive versions.
Great for newbies and us older players alike. The only issue is the jumbo frets can be a bit bulbous on the ends (could use premium/prestige fret treatment, but you can do that yourself at this price or have a local luthier do it for you). That would be my only weak complaint.
Ibanez is a fantastic guitar maker. There's a reason Vai, Satriani, Kiko, Benson, Gilbert, Timmons, etc have signed on. It's not just promotional. Now if they'd open their custom shop to more people! :-)
