- Tuning in ADGCFAD
- Mahogany body

A nice book: Table type embossed "crocodile skin" trs beautiful handle with Saddle trsrussi key binding, inlays on original rosewood fingerboard, ... High-end home Ibanez! Qualitprix excellent value.

UTILIZATION

Inspiration is deeply stratode (or even superstratode): pitch, body shape with bevels ergonomic ACCS ais acute due to the deep cut sides, ...
Rsultat: comfort including the handle off yet (7 strings).
The weight? Trs content.
The only difficulty getting used to the game 7-string.
The U bar (whammy bar U-shaped with two anchor points on the block vibrato) is more useful anecdotal, but it's part of the exclusivity of the MODEL. Excellent agreement with the edge pro tremolo.
In two words: ergonomic trs.

SOUNDS

Korn is a signature guitar, so its a heavy trs, trs atmosphre a serious and somber music trs. Not for the pop ballad. Adding that the two guitarists of Korn branch (there are only Munky, Head both sides in a mystical DLIR) in a head Mesa Boogie Triple Rectifier! The trs trs heavy!
So what about small amps in our living room? The low output pickups make the sound of an amp dcevant modest power and inquitant characters sound of Korn are absent. But connecting an amp pluttpchu lamps (I possde a combo Mesa Boogie Rect-O-Verb 50 Watt single correct and a Marshall 100 watt combo JVM410) things back to normal .. . and the guitar is fully expressed: powerful bass register, its heavy and oppressive.
Note: 1 potentiomtre volume, no potentiomtre of Tone. Therefore little versatility.
Total: 7 / 10 because you have to plug it into an amp "high gain" to find high quality sound we were looking into buying it.

OVERALL OPINION

- Pros: the quality of manufacturing and exemplary finish, the exclusivity of the MODEL (table, inlay, 7 strings), ergonomics;
- Cons: Requires a high end amp "high gain" to express themselves fully, not versatile.
Total: I will 7 / 10. I love this guitar but its use is restricted trs. In troisime choice (or more) for fans of Korn (if you prfrez Slipknot, go for the Ibanez 7-string team of Seven EMG: sounds sharper but colder).
