Bought the red brick version. Very nice. It will take some getting used to the pickups. How to approach them is something to be learned. Very strange configuration of the pickups. Look online to see what I mean. I am tempted to remove the brick cuts and put a quarter inch of mahogany for the top with black binding. I will put a Satriani pickup in the bridge and not sure of what to put in the neck position. I have my own ideas about pickups and wiring than Ibanez. I am a DiMarzio pickup person. I am never fully satisfied with anything so do not consider my changes because this instrument is not right. I just customize things and this may be a good thing to suit my sound. Ibanez is awesome with this guitar. Buy it for sure. I did. Ibanez is a serious company and approaching this is a learning thing and I have and do own other Ibanez's. They are not grab and play. They take a meticulous approach that gives you options. Do not listen to folks that can't set up this tremolo. It is fine if you know what you are doing. Most don't know how to set up this type of trem. It came perfectly set up but intonated sharp. That is o.k. Built like a brick ___ house. Rock on.

A student of mine bought this guitar and brought it into the shop for a string change just this week. I have to admit, for the money this guitar has great sound, unique looks, and a neck which drives like a Cadillac. However, it will NOT stay in tune if you use the whammy bar. I don't care how much time you spend prestretching the strings, fine tuning, etc.;Dive bomb it one time and it's out of tune. My advice: save your money and purchase a higher end Ibanez, preferably one with either an Edge Pro or ZR tremolo. The Edge III is a piece of crap.

Sweet Metal Guitar

By Trent

from United States

See all my reviews

I've been playing for almost 20 years. Have owned a few Ibanez, a bunch of Strats and Teles, Boutique Amps and all the rest. I got this a couple of months ago and I love it. I did have trouble keeping it in tune at 1st, BUT...once I learned the proper angle to keep the trem I HAVEN'T HAD A PROBLEM SINCE! The sounds are great. Very round sounding in the neck and thick at the bridge (perfect for high gain without getting muddy). Very fast neck. I admit it took me a couple weeks to dial it in when I changed my strings to 10s and tuned to drop D, but I had the trem set too far back. Angle it forward and it works flawlessly. Perfect intonation and I can Divebomb all night with very little adjustments. Very good guitar.

Great Buy

I bought this guitar about a week ago. I have to say it is one of the best guitars for the value. I run it through my Marshall MG15DFX as well as my Marshall stack and everything on this guitar is crystal clear. I recommend this piece for beginners and experienced players alike

Review

By DJ88

I just bought the spider web version. I have to say it's been one of my better buys! I love the neck and the playability of it...very fast and I can get the action low like I like it. The tremolo took a few days to get adjusted but I got it and now it stays in tune. It looks cool but the only thing I'm not sold on is the body texture...it's like a slab of 60 grit sand paper. All in all I love it!

best feeling

By HeavyLorde

from Undisclosed

this is the best feeling guitar Ive ever played. perfectly balanced and beveled and the all access neck joint means you can reach that 24th fret even when your standing and your guitar is hanging low. its as comfortable to play standing as sitting; a rarity. the v7 and v8 pickups sound amazing with the coil tapped and parallel wiring, but have NO attack and low output in series.after i throw an x2n in the bridge and an Air Norton in the neck im expecting this guitar to be my main axe (over a hamer and a high end jackson) ps. the edge 3 is great, confusing to set up, but once its set, has the less friction and more control than an original floyd

Review

By Nicholas Cordaro

from Scranton, Pa

ive been playing for about a year and have played many of guitars to find my "perfect" sound. And as soon as i tuned this bad boy up and got ready to play i was instantly amazed by how tight and how fat the neck and bridge pickups are. The feel of the body blows your mind away. I would def. recommend this to any player between beginner, recording atrtist etc.

When I ordered this guitar, I have to admit, I thought it was gonna be cool but not last long at all. When it came tho, let me tell you, I was shocked hardore! The lines on it are carved out! It has a awesome tremolo system on it. IT sounds ou of this world! It totally tops any Strat. Its better SOUNDING than a strat. I think it should be worth more! Its so awesome! I absolutly love this Axe! ~ ROCK ON!

Sick Metal Dream

By Ice L.

from Saint George, Utah

This is the first electric guitar I have owned, but not the first I have tried by any means. I have played more expensive guitars and been much less impressed with them than this one. The frets are very fast, the bridge (once set up) is quite good, and the neck is so fast it's like it's not even there. A very intuitive guitar to play and very good sound.

Great Guitar

By Night Hawk

from Fort Fairfield Maine

I bought this about a week ago (bio armor) and its very good. The finish is a unique thick flat black powder coat with carved in design. I believe the pickups are wonderful and i run it through a digitech rp-80 into my home theater system lol. My only complaint (and i held my breath when getting this) is the edge III. I tuned it and locked everything in but when I use the wammy it comes out of tune so easy and u can only use the fine tuners so long before u must unlock it again to tune it again, and thats hard on the hardware. Maybe its me but I will take it to the shop and have it looked at. Other than that its fantastic. Also this guitar sounds amazing clean, do not let its looks fool you.

Get The Goth Out

By GypsyRider

from Feeding Hills, MA

I recieved this beautiful instrument as an early Christmas Gift from my Fianc this year and I have to be honest she is starting to get a little jealous of it. The action is smooth and the edge III trem is remarkable good but then again Ibanez makes a great instrument. I run it through a Line 6 Spider III and use 2 multi effects pedal (Digitech GNX4, and the Boss GT-8) and the sound comes out smooth as silk

Almost a Prestige

By Ibanezer-met3X

from Riga, Latvia

See all my reviews

Tried the RG420EG BRD (Brick Red) through a Marshall. It's almost an RG1570, the most noticable thing is that it lacks a single coil pickup. Many don't like the V7 and V8 pickups, but they have a nice tone compared to other guitar stock pickups. Everything else is as usual - a fast Wizard neck, 5-way switch and a tone and volume knob. The only thing I really don't like about the guitar is that the sharktooth inlays are very distracting and have blurry edges, so they don't look as good close-up. Otherwise this is a great guitar for the price.

Unique Looks, Great Playability

By KINGDANGER

from New Mexico

I've had the Ibanez RG420EG about a month now & really love it! The Wizard neck is sleek and fast. I've also taken to the unique "rock-like" finish. No more constant polishing. I have'nt experienced any trouble with the Edge III as others have reported ... hmm?. V7 & V8 pickups get the job done and are warm and responsive with an incredible variety of clean-tones and just enough sizzle with distortion(though not as bright as the RG350MYE Inf's). All n' all, a great guitar that'll turn heads and ears!

BEST GUITAR EVER!!!

By Anonymous

from Undisclosed

First of all I don't really care too much for ibanez guitars but this one is great. I went to my local music store hoping to find a dean guitar but as soon as I walk in I see this and knew I had to have it. The pickups on this thing are very clean with chords but still has alot of bite to them which I like. The neck on it is very nice and thin which makes this guitar very fast and the tremlo system on this thing is perfect. Great guitar for metal lovers with a great affortably price buy it.

I bought this guitar a few days ago, and I am completely satisfied. For the price and for the quality you can't go wrong with this axe. The harmonics and high end scream with sustain and the low ends are punchy but not pushy. The finish is also a sight to see. This is a must have...
