Handles very pleasantly, easy access to acute. A beautiful shape, nice to play guitar sitting or standing. The only defect is its size, but it's a semi hollow, one must decide.
The guitar is a bit heavy for a semi hollow, but the lack of a vibrato, like the Bigsby Ibanez, tends to make it out of tune if used frequently.
One gets easily a good sound, whether in light or in saturated ...
Yes, this guitar suits my music style, a beautiful clear sound, and also pretty saturated.
with the neck pickup, you get beautiful clean sound, perfect for blues or other styles that require good clean sound.
in saturation, it also responds well, but it's not really for her.
I've had it almost a year, I particularly like its clear sound, its size, although necessary to sue a semi hollow, is sitting pretty annoying even if it is still very enjoyable to play.
I try guitar and I still play lots of guitar since I got it and she really does it well, so yes, I would choose it again.

I put 9 only because I have fingers lumberjack and I started to play on a classical guitar, then obviously the neck seemed a little late to start and getting started was not easy for me. Still it offers excellent access to acute and that the handle is very nice. By-cons, vibrato used too often or too hard tends to detune the guitar ... obviously it is a constant for this type of vibrato. When I started playing in a group (and therefore long standing), it seemed to me a little heavy in the late evening ... This feeling disappeared as soon as I invested in a good strap.
I play instead of pop-rock, blues etc.. Oasis, AC / DC, Telephone, Lenny Kravitz, Aston Villa, Led Zep. It extremely versatile and speaks good clear sound with a heavy distortion, but I have a personal soft spot for sounds with crunch (more than the distortion) and it ensures good too. Maybe the bass is a little light ... but it's a personal opinion
I use it for a little over a year and I have nothing to reproach him. e have not tried many styles, but she won me over immediately and had a lot to look. I love its sound and playability ... for the price, it seems very very interesting. There is one point which I think is meaningful and important to mention: its price has risen since its introduction on the market (€ 40 on various websites) ... no doubt that the high demand for this product and as a happy father of the beautiful I know why!
ACH2 humbucker (bridge) + ACH1 humbucker (neck), chrome hardware, top, back and sides, maple body thickness 43mm, Artcore Set-Neck Mahogany, Rosewood 22 frets, ART-2 Roller Bridge and tremolo VBS80.
Very good finish on the guitar is well balanced light, the handle is nice, the tremolo works very well but do not like violence (your tuner you will understand) like any vibrato type Bigsby .
I play blues and rock and agree very well to my style of music I play on a Marshall amp lamp class 5 which is a wonder especially pitcher on the bridge pickup! it tolerates overruns but beware of large distortion is in. fact.
For trying several half till I can say that for the price it's very good stuff as always with Ibanez. In my opinion it is a cut above the epiphone DOT.Je remake that choice without hesitation
