    Comments about Ibanez RG652 Prestige RG Series Electric Guitar:

    I've had this guitar for about a month now and it is now my favorite guitar. Let's get to the good points: hardshell case included, great looking black finish, unfinished 5 piece neck, Gotoh tuners, awe-inspiring pickups. I get pinch harmonics everywhere on this thing.

    The setup was actually quite a pain initially. The factory setup was horrible. After truss rod adjustments, bridge adjustments, intonation adjustments, wash rinse and repeat...I got a pretty flat fretboard with low action that is easy to play and very fast.

    I have gotten to record with this through my Marshall attached to my pedal board going into a Line6 GX to my computer. I recorded the lead for So Far Away by Avenged Sevenfold and it honestly sounded just like Synyster's setup. Granted, I had to tweak a lot but I got it there.

    The guitar is crisp sounding with fantastic pickups...they make my EMG's on my ESP 350MH-NT look sad, and I was happy with those. Granted, this guitar is quite a bit more expensive.

    If you're really in the market for this type of guitar and don't want flashy tremolos but rather a fixed bridge that won't let you down...look no further. I know I have years before my skill outgrows the guitar.

    Comments about Ibanez RG652 Prestige RG Series Electric Guitar:

    I was fortunate to pick up a mint 'lightly used' version and you couldn't even tell it had been used. The hardshell case is a nice touch. I will admit, setup was quite tedious and the factory setup needed a lot of work. However, once setup was done, I started to play, and WOW.

    The pickups are rich, even when using the bridge pickups. Pinch harmonics are all over the string. Literally...I have to be careful where I hit or I get off sounds. Using the center setting gives a full-blown amazing full sound and the neck pickup tones it down a bit but still offers tonal variance. This guitar sounds good clean, it sounds good distorted...it just sounds good.

    I did a direct compare with my ESP LTD MH-350NT with EMG 81 and 85 pickups. The ESP sounded thin on the bridge pickups and couldn't meet the tonal depth of the 652 on any setting. Both used monster cables to hook to the sawitch box. EVERYTHING sounds better on this guitar. It makes my amp look sucky (a G-DEC 30) but I am having fun with my new pedal board with Korg tuner and Morley three guitar switch.

    Great guitar, great price (yes, I said it here). Just make sure to use good gear with it. You'll appreciate the difference.
