Comments about Ibanez S1XXV 25th Anniversary Electric Guitar:
So in the end, distorted sounds great, good for metal, blues, rock and Im sure plenty of other styles, Ibanez is a very flexible company when it comes to their guitars. They look pretty cool, they feel nice and they sound amazing. Theres not much more to ask for. Go out and play it if you have the chance!
PS- all of my playing I did through a Line 6 Spider Valve 212 MKII 2x12... I belive... so a hybrid combo, sounded great, I think my friend was playing through a 30 watt solid state, also sounded good, in fact my friend plans to save up and buy himself one in the near future, pretty good impression for a couple hours of playing huh?
To start, I dont own this, I played it today alongside my friend in a local music store, he had a green model, I had a yellow one (they are much more flourecent in person by the way). The pickups on these sound fantastic, if youve played the stock infinities before, then you probly already know how they sound. Great distorted sounds, didnt really try clean though. The whammy works well, not my favorite style of trem bridge but thats a matter of preference. Strings stayed in tune with whammy use. Action was nice, I didnt notice any fret buzz, a rather wide neck, not something I'm used to... but it didn't seem to impede on my playing at all, its also a thin neck (its a wizard III what do you expect?).
These beasts are set up well in the store, I would assume they ship that way but dont take my word for it. The parts all felt pretty solid when I played them, especially for the price, I was playing some other instruments that ranged far higher in price that didnt feel as good. Also the intonation as far as I could tell seemed good, again I'm not sure if it comes out of the box like that, but who cares? that stuff is easy to set up anyways.
I think you definitely get a lot for what youre paying, but it seems like the price tag could be lowered if they weren't a 25th anniversary edition, but nonetheless it would still be worth the money.
