OVERVIEW

A legendary metal axe sharpens its blade a bit more.

The Ibanez RG350MDX Electric Guitar takes the RG series further into the metal zone. Many players have selected the Ibanez RG as their weapon of choice for visiting sonic mayhem on the metal masses. With an impressive pickup array, flat and fast bolt-on neck and double-locking trems, the RG has dive bombed and crunched its way to classic status. Though it rocks heavy, the RG350MDX is made of comparatively lightweight basswood, which makes it very comfortable for extended playing. With a good balance of highs and lows, basswood is between alder and mahogany in sound character. Specially placed IBZ humbuckers bring the hard-edged cutting tone heavy rock demands while a middle single-coil pickup gives you sonic versatility. 24 jumbo frets and a fast Wizard II neck offer easy playing for leads and rhythm, and an Edge III bridge offers great tremolo control.

I Have the 350 EX Version of this guitar. For those of you don't know, thats the black and silver one, or the White and Pearl White pickguard. First of all, the pickups that come with the guitar standard, are not bad at all, for a first timers humbucking pickups. I played squier before this, and i just did not get much crunch out of a single coil, obviously. So the humbuckers we're a plus. But eventually I wanted something a little clearer, and punchier. With that, I replaced the 2 humbuckers with EMG 81/60's. That fixed all my metal sounding probs I had. I left the single coil in the guitar, but since it wouldn't work with humbuckers, its just sitting there so there isn't a hole in the middle of the pickguard now. Also, the Edge III bridge, is not that great. I love using tremolos for my music, but i hate using bad ones. So pretty soon, I'm going to replace it for an original floyd rose. Its a lot of money, but also worth every penny. A lot of people say the Edge Pro Bridges made by ibanez, are really good. Steve vai uses them. I've never played one, but I played an OFR, and they're bada**. Besides that, everything on the guitar is great. Good light wood, good looks. Just a few technical things needed to be worked out.

This guitar was an utter pain in the a** for me. Ibanez's edge III is horrible. Once I finally adjusted everything, the screws in the back came out because the wood is probably dirt cheap low-grade ibanez junk. Oh yeah, and the string blocks decided to break on me and you can only get them directly from ibanez (since the edge III is not a floyd rose license, it is a junk ibanez version. I have a show in two weeks so guess what? I'm screwed. Thank God I own the alexi 200 made by ESP which is a lot more reliable. Yes, the feel of this guitar is good, but I would recommend this for anyone considering this guitar:1)If you are really wanting an ibanez, go for a prestige or higher quality, otherwise you will be quite disappointed2) Buy an ESP or Jackson because for the same price you can get a much better guitar from those two companies.

Amazing

By The Man-5m5DV

from ATL

I've had this guitar for about 7 or 8 months now and i just have to say that it is amazing overall. I love the pickup combinations because they are extremely versatile. With the HSH setup, I can get almost infinite tone possibilities. The Edge 3 tremelo is excellent and stays in tune forever. I dont recommend changing tunings often becaue it is a pain to switch. The neck is the fastest i've ever played and the whole guitar suits any music style. This is an amazing guitar for the money.

nice value for a maple fretboard RG

By theCasualAproach

from pittsburgh,PA

Well I have a few rosewood fingerboard RG models with maple necks and EDGE tremelos...and without paying the Prestige model price, you can make it into a great axe.Do a set up, yank out the inf3neck and inf4bridge pups and replace with a hot set of DiMarzios, put the trem bar in a vice and angle it up about 10 extra degres...and voila!!! A guitar a 25 year pro like me can use as his daily bread. Hard stuff, fuzz stuff, blues stuff, jazzy runs, pretty stuff with the volume knob rolled back...this sweetheart will do it all and play effortlessly. It's fast and furious and the rival of guitars from Fender, Godin, Vigier, Washburn, ESP , Jackson et al.

This Axe Rocks

By 220chief

Have had this guitar for about two weeks now and I do love it. It has a nice action, sound and a fast fretboard. Great guitar for metal!!! Trem is great too. Set it up with 9's and you won't want to set it down.

My Favorite

By Batdan

from Cottonwood, AZ

This axe takes a beating and keeps chugging, it has become my favorite out of all my guitars. I have played four hour long shows and then gone home and not touched it till the next weekend, and sure enough it stays in tune even after being dropped, nearly perfect tuning at that. Dive bombs easily, (if you know how to do them) its overall a great guitar, a great find for anyone.

OMG

By Sonic Mayhem

from Bristol, VT

This thing continues to amaze me every time I pick it up. I find myself playing it more than my Strat's now. I can't say enough good things about this guitar.. the feel, the tone, how easy it is to play, and the looks are top notch. I love it. If you find one and have the extra cash do yourself a favour and get one, you wont regret it.

Awesome Axe!!

By Jaded Goddess

from Charlotte, NC

Because my local guitar shop sold the one I tried out, I had them order it in white. I love it. Nice fast neck! Great tone and volume! I'll probably throw some hotrodded Seymour Duncan pick-ups in it later. The tremlo system takes some getting used to, but strings don't break as often as other types. Sassy, hot, and screamin'!

Ibanez RG350MDX

By IbanezPlayer25

from Virginia Beach, VA

This guitar is amazing! I love the fast Wizard II neck is and the pickups sound way better than I expected through the Raven RG100 I played on. They just blew my ears away! I like the HSH combination and all the different tones that I can get out of it. The cleans are nice and crisp and the distortion is dark and crunchy, which is great for metal. I love how smooth the Edge III trem is, I can do anything with it and it still stays in tune. Now I've played many guitars in and out of this price range, but I have to say this is my favorite guitar and the best guitar out there on the market. SO BUY IT NOW!

Very Nice!

By Tat2dEvil-SsoiY

from Maine

See all my reviews

This is a very nice guitar, I have many Ibanez guitars and this is one of the best. As with any RG I've played, this is a shred machine. Super fast neck, super low action, very easy and comfortable to play. If you're a metal player you cannot beat Ibanez, period. They are great for all types of music, but in my experience you can't find a faster neck, your hand glides effortlessly on these. Playing one with distortion gives you a pure metal tone. I have a slight preference to my RG420 & my S520, but at two hundred less this guitar is a great value. If you're considering this one just do it, you won't be disappointed.

I have been playing with this guitar about one year. I just have one problem with a saddle in the bridge. I had many guitars with floyd rose. This one is really god, dont go out of tune with very hard dive bombs, And sounds good. Im gonna change pickups, thats all. Very nice guitar, sounds good, great features and cheap!

Good, but has flaws

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

To be honest this guitar is nice, but mainly for looks. I recently bought this not too long ago and i ended up sending it back. The action is fast and good for any type of music, but when i recieved my Ibanez i had a few problems. My knob was very cheap(fell off) and the tremolo just wasn't working out. It was very sensitive causing to much pitch alteration. I would have kept it and improved the guitar itself(Tremolo and pickups), but i figured if i was going to put as much money as i though i was then i should just send it back and get something alittle better. Don't get me wrong, i'm an Ibanez fan ,but I think i'll spend alittle more money and look into a Shecter, Jackson or jut save up for a Ibanez Prestige.

Super Guitar

By alabamaman2109

from Columbia, SC

This guitar is the super of all guitars. I have seven guitars and this is my favorite it is the cheapest of the seven and it makes my friends guitars look horrible when they payed 1,000 or more for there's. this guitar is so much fun to play. with my Marshall Half Stack i can just sit in my room and rock out with this guitar all day. Im am so glad that i bought this guitar, because this guitar is better that my B.C. Rich Revenge Warlock that i have had for 4 years and i have played this one for about 3 months and i have already decided that this is my favorite. Great guitar!

One Word, One Number: Edge III

By JeffWiredBeck24

from Los Angeles, CA

This guitar would be great, a maple fretboard, nice Wizard II, but the Edge III Trem is enough reason to avoid this altogether. While the Edge III may work while it lasts, if you are a heavy trem user, the trem's lifespan is reduced to a measly few months. This bridge is simply an inferior product, and the manufacture quality is simply not there. You're better off buying an Prestige model with the Edge Pro. Ibanez makes the best floating trems, but they put them on Prestige models (although I hear ZR is very good). Avoid this guitar. I have owned it, and I sold it to get money for an even better guitar - the Ibanez RG 20th Anniversary. Again, sav up for a Prestige.Oh, and I'm not too fond of the pickups on this either.

Not a bad guitar

By jon-E4-K1

from US

See all my reviews

Ive have several Ibanez guitars and this one is my favorite when it comes to the looks. Now when it comes to how it plays I have some complaints. Right out of the box I noticed a couple frets werent pressed into the neck all the way which creates horrible string buzz on 2 spots on the neck. I tried to take care of it myself with a fret hammer but the fret glue is preventing the fret from setting. The pickups arent that great either but thats almost always expected with stock pickups. The double locking system rocks though. It stays in tune pretty well too. I had planned on putting emgs in it before I got it in the mail but now that I know Im going to have to pay for some fret work too the pickups will be coming after the fret work is done. Overall its a good guitar for the price. Im sure my issues with the frets arent a wide spread issue with every guitar but its just something to think about before you buy this guitar.

not too bad.

By Brennan-qROmL

from Easton, MD

See all my reviews

I played this at the local music store and I thought it was pretty good. The pickups are nothing to get crazy about, I would probably put in EMG if I needed to. The Edge III was pretty damn good, even better than some of the Floyds I have played. It has a pretty light body, most Ibanez guitars are meant to be lightweight and areo dynamic, it was also easy to play. It has a great neck with a wide fretboard which is what I prefer. For now on I am an Ibanez man.

RG350DX

By k_manfmx4

from Bryan, TX

See all my reviews

I own the RG350DX version of this guitar. It is exactly the same, but has a rosewood fretboard and white finish. I found this guitar at the local shop. As soon as I spotted it, I loved it. I played it for around 5 minutes, only because I didn't have much time. But I ended up going back and buying it. When I got home, I went to restring with Ernie Ball Not Even Slinkys *the only strings I use* and retune. The trem is HORRIBLE. Or at least mine was. The only tuning I can use is Drop C without the bridge being at a bad angle. And even then, when I lock the nut, it IMMEDIATELY goes out of tune. Each string drops about 2 steps; even after adjusting all of the saddles individually. Don't get me wrong, balance is great, weight isn't too much of a problem, and it sounds awesome (thanks to the Dimarzio INF pickups). But I have to get the trem fixed. If you want this guitar, be sure to have it set up to your liking by a tech. You won't regret it like I have.

This guitar is awesome. This is my second guitar and right out of the box I was amazed. The play is okay right now but I'm sure once I break it in it will be smooth. But I give it a 8. So in other words BUY IT!!!!!!!

its perfect but flawed in alot of ways.

By youcanttouchthis

from alabama

ive had this guitar since christmas 06 and ive only had three problems with it. 1 my knob fell of the first day. 2 it has a very weak tone on it, i suggest replacing the humbuckers. 3 the tremelo bridge is very difficult to deal with while in the process of changing and streaching out your stings, and the bar doesnt have very good reaction. but ive had a few improvements as well. 1 it is a great guitar for metal. very fast neck. 2 it is comfortably light.

AMAZING!!!

By XxstringsnapperxX

from Houston

When I played this guitar I was pretty shocked by the sound and feel. It has a soft, slick maple fingerboard and a fast neck although I'd expect an Ibanez neck to be a lil thinner. The pickups are high quality, unbelievably, they are crunchy, articulate, and have excellent harmonics. Thanks to the HSH pickup configuration you a LOT of tones to choose from. I play mostly metal and shred and this handles all that like a beast but I was able to get really nice blues tones thanks to the mid single coil. I've used a licensed floyd rose trem and the edge 3 trem is so much softer and feels so much better(like a kahler almost) but don't get me wrong you can do some dramatic effects with the whammy bar and it stays in tune great. Bending, vibrato, sweep arpeggios, and harmonics are so easy on this thing. Buy this guitar...
