This really isn't any different from any of the other ibanez guitars that they've released. The main differnece is that this guitar has a very striking finish on it that lends itself towards standing out of the crowd a bit more. The guitar has a basswood body with a maple neck, rosewood fretboard with 24 frets, dot inlays, an Ibanez Edge Pro tremolo, HH configuration, all access neck joint, one volume, one tone and a five way switch.

UTILIZATION

The first thing you notice about this guitar is how nice the actual finish is. It was flawless when I was checking it out. There were no drips or scratch marks from the sanding process. Everything was like glass, and it really popped out at you. The fretwork on this guitar was great, and I was able to get super low action without any issues. The necks on these are fairly thin, but they're not quite as thin as the old school Wizard necks, so some people might prefer them a bit. All in all, it was a very solid guitar.

SOUNDS

The guitar's stock pickups were pretty weak sounding. I was never a huge fan of the stock pickups that Ibanez puts in their guitars, and this is no different. The bridge sounded kinda bland overall, and it was just uninspiring. It can work for some tones, but it's not nearly as organic as a normal DiMarzio would be. The neck was much the same, and I find the neck to be a bit too bright for my liking. I tend to prefer darker, smoother neck pickups, and this wasn't getting what I normally go for unless I turned down the tone knob a bit.

OVERALL OPINION

If you replace the pickups in this model, you'll get a great playing guitar at a great price. The finish helps make it stand out from the rest of the crowd, and it's a pretty cool guitar overall. However, it's not THAT much different from other Ibanez guitars out there, so you might be better off buying an older model on eBay or from guitar forums.
