If you have spent any time with a Gibson Les Paul guitar than this will be a similar type guitar from feeling, weight, and balance. The overall tone of this guitar is very like a Gibson Les Paul guitar. Primarily due to because of the body shape of the instrument and also the wood that is used throughout the build process. This guitar features mahogany wood for the body and a neck much like a Gibson Les Paul guitar would feature. You also have a maple top which is textured kind of peculiar. So the top of it is has a rough feeling instead of a smooth top.

SOUNDS


This guitar is a instrument that if you want something as an alternative to a Gibson Les Paul guitar and you might be impulse to pick this instrument up. However I would warn you though that the texture top on the top of the body is a little strange. So it's more of a rough feeling on the top than a smooth feeling which gives you this allure that it's almost like a crocodile skin on the top of your guitar. It's very strange to me and I really don't care for that much. Overall the tone is pretty much the same as any other Gibson Les Paul guitar. Therefore you can have a tone that can be warm, thick, and juicy especially when you get a medium high gain amplifier setting from your amp or your effects/overdrive pedals. Therefore if you're looking for a cheaper and more metals looking dare I say Gibson Les Paul type guitar than this might be more up your ally.

OVERALL OPINION

These guitars have been discontinued for a while but you can still find them online somewhat easily. I've seen them range right around $400 or so. They do come in different colors but they're probably even more harder to find in the color you want. If you're looking for something that's pretty inexpensive and don't want spend a lot of money getting that particular Les Paul tone than this might be a good alternative for you. It's a decent price if you like Ibanez guitars so for the money it is a decent pickup.
