    Comments about Ibanez RG series RG450MB Electric Guitar:

    For the price this guitar is hard to beat. I typically only ever wanted maple necks on a Fender because I'm not the biggest maple neck fan. Well, this one sounds fantastic. It came with less issues than the RG1070 I bought a week before (they didn't dress all the frets properly, premium treatment my rear!).

    I've got the sharktooth/rosewood neck on an RG450DX as well, they sit side by side in my stable and are great to play. I'm spoiled with amazing amps so it would take a tin can to make them sound bad, but the Ibanez pickups in these are hard to differentiate between the typical Prestige/Premium in my S/RG guitars. Honestly, it makes me think buying the 1300-2600 guitars, I'd have been better off just sticking with these less expensive versions.

    Great for newbies and us older players alike. The only issue is the jumbo frets can be a bit bulbous on the ends (could use premium/prestige fret treatment, but you can do that yourself at this price or have a local luthier do it for you). That would be my only weak complaint.

    Ibanez is a fantastic guitar maker. There's a reason Vai, Satriani, Kiko, Benson, Gilbert, Timmons, etc have signed on. It's not just promotional. Now if they'd open their custom shop to more people! :-)

        Comments about Ibanez RG series RG450MB Electric Guitar:

        Have returned 3 of these now, 2 Red and 1 blue. First Red one was full of finish flaws. The next red and Blue had such horrible fret buzz that it was unplayable, even when set up to factory spec and tweaked a bit here and there to try and get rid of it. Could have tried a Fret level and recrown, but I feel that a guitar in this price point should be at least playable out of the box with minimal buzz. These had a nest of Bee's living in the neck from fret 1-24. I have been playing and building guitars for 32+ years and never had issues like this with a new guitar. Even my Luthier was disappointed by the craftsmanship.
        The Neck did feel comfortable and the ones without finish problems looked great. Really wanted this to be a good guitar.

        Okay Ibanez RG for a good price. Much better than other cheaper Ibanez models but not up to past Ibanez quality I've gotten from an RG350M and an RG320 in the past
