If you have spent any time with a Gibson Les Paul guitar than this will be a similar type guitar from feeling, weight, and balance. The overall tone of this guitar is very like a Gibson Les Paul guitar. Primarily due to because of the body shape of the instrument and also the wood that is used throughout the build process. This guitar features mahogany wood for the body and a neck much like a Gibson Les Paul guitar would feature. You also have a maple top which is textured kind of peculiar. So the top of it is has a rough feeling instead of a smooth top.

This guitar is a instrument that if you want something as an alternative to a Gibson Les Paul guitar and you might be impulse to pick this instrument up. However I would warn you though that the texture top on the top of the body is a little strange. So it's more of a rough feeling on the top than a smooth feeling which gives you this allure that it's almost like a crocodile skin on the top of your guitar. It's very strange to me and I really don't care for that much. Overall the tone is pretty much the same as any other Gibson Les Paul guitar. Therefore you can have a tone that can be warm, thick, and juicy especially when you get a medium high gain amplifier setting from your amp or your effects/overdrive pedals. Therefore if you're looking for a cheaper and more metals looking dare I say Gibson Les Paul type guitar than this might be more up your ally.
These guitars have been discontinued for a while but you can still find them online somewhat easily. I've seen them range right around $400 or so. They do come in different colors but they're probably even more harder to find in the color you want. If you're looking for something that's pretty inexpensive and don't want spend a lot of money getting that particular Les Paul tone than this might be a good alternative for you. It's a decent price if you like Ibanez guitars so for the money it is a decent pickup.

Aquabluesman's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
- In what country does she makes? Made in China, but the finish is irrprochable, elsewhere in dpart I wondered if they did not err in s'taient labels
- How many frets, what kind of micro as well as their configuration? 22 frets, two humbuckers, assets under LR6 (AA) and not under 9V, conus by Ibanez.
- What type of bridge? Fixed on stop bar. The bridge is a Gibraltar III, rounded on top for the palm muting comfortable.
- What are the rglages? Two volumes and one Tone slecteur three positions
- What type of race? Channel al short scale 24.75 ", rosewood fingerboard, Modern C shape (not flat, but not fat and round)
- Other? In fact it is the same as the ART-320 except that the body of the guitar has made a "Croco" ... it is too beautiful (click on photo to enlarge you will see!)
APRS ntoy have carefully and remove all fat people had been left over by trying it in the store, the handle is rvle trs enjoyable play.
CHAC at AIG and the same as on any other Les Paul guitar typ, no more, no less.
As against the guitar rvle trslgre compared to other more expensive guitars which is an advantage for those who like me used to play up!
In terms of sound the microphone is the handle prs, for the bridge loan against the bcp has more characters.
for that price you have active pickups!! ca dchire!
I play mostly rock and also some rock hard! it is perfect and the look she gives me on the finish with scne aligator ...
(Do not hesitate to read the notice on the ART-320, I 100% agree with what t cry!)
I have a few months and when I see the report quality price! The finish is really good trs, the pickups sound good (especially after the battery exchange), it is strong and lightweight, the patent seems to trs good quality (we vera If AC is confirmed with time) ... in short I advise everyone, even those who are dear dj guitars trs

That's six months now that I use Ibanez ART 300 BNC, and
I am particularly delighted by its ability to play several
musical style as well as the rock thrash metal tell that I did.
What surprised me also and this will surprise you if you're lucky
play with this guitar is exceptionally clear sound.
