I purchased this guitar from the Musician's Friend catalogue. I paid $319US for this guitar.
I liked the fact that this guitar is a single pickup (humbucker), hollow body guitar - great for playing jazz ballads.
I was not impressed by the workmanship - cheap plywood/veneer box. Also the pickup was hanging by the wiring down in the guitar body when I unpacked the guitar. It may have come off in shipping, but should have been more firmly mounted. Fortunately I was able to replace it properly as the mounting hardware had not been lost. Lowering the action is a major problem - it is very high as received from MF. The only way to accomplish this adjustment is to remove the bridge and file the bottom down about 1/8 - 1/4 inch. The neck set seemed to be okay and the neck did not appear to be warped. This is just a poor design.
Cheap construction, built to meet a price point - the only single pickup, hollow body guitar in this price range from a major manufacturer.
While I will keep this instrument to play on jazz gigs I am very disappointed in the poor design and cheap construction of this Ibanez guitar.
