This guitar is perfect. It sounds absolutely incredible. The intonation is great, the body is incredibly comfortable, and my god that neck is just perfection. It's so easy to play and the pickups sound incredible. Like most cheap guitars, there are issues with the tuning stability when you use the whammy bar, but that's very easily forgivable for a guitar of such high quality. I've played many other guitars in this price range, and none have sounded and felt as good as this one. If Ibanez's budget guitars are this good, I can't imagine how good their expensive ones are.
