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.

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.
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.
This guitar is amazing! The neck is fast and very smooth. The flat radius makes it very easy to shred and blues bends are just as easy to do. The pickups have great definition and the neck picup is VERY warm and smooth. I would highly recomend.
ive had this guitar for about 4 months now and the strangest thing happened when the bridge slipped off of the screws and broke the springs inside and hit me in the side of the face. This guitar was a good beginners guitar while i had it but i would not reccomend it to another person. I hope no one else had this same problem.
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.
I have to admit that I have played for a number of years, but always shied away from Ibanez in favor of more traditional electrics, specifically the telecaster. I viewed Ibanez as a shredder instrument only. I had some sort of lapse in reason and purchased this guitar, and I'm happy I did. I am very pleased with the quality of this instrument as compared to a smaller Ibanez Mikro that I had recently purchased for my young son. The set-up was spot on and the string height was not set excessively low as I feared it might be.Overall I am delighted with the quality of the instrument and the quality of the tones that I can get from it. I look forward to more experimentation.
Man this thing is awesome, I used to be kind of an Ibanez hater. But they have really stepped it up in quality recently. The body is basswood, but it feels much heavier and doesn't dent as easily as other basswood guitars I have owned. The stock pickups sound pretty good also, I might trade them out in the future but right now they are good enough. This thing can handle anything as well, I tuned it down to drop A(AEADF#B) and it handled it perfectly. If you are a shredder or play anything reasonably technical this is your guitar by far.
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.
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 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.
