    A small scratch to the good violin ;)

    Ibanez RX40Published on 04/01/14 at 05:04
    (This content has been automatically translated from French)
    Made in Korea.
    Channel 22-fret maple neck, rosewood fingerboard.
    HSS pickup config.
    3 ply white pickguard 1.
    1 5-way switch
    1 volume and tone.
    1 6 vibrato bridges.

    I would put 8 because 24 frets would have been welcome ...

    UTILIZATION

    Basically, it's like a Fender Strat with a neck a little thinner.
    Very handy, well balanced, slightly lighter weight Qune Standart Strat (maximum 3lbs).
    For the handle, nothing wrong, this is Ibanez ;)
    Vibrato is a vintage style, so do not confuse it with a floyd rose.

    SOUNDS

    Originally, it sounds not terrible, but I think Ibanez has mostly favored the violin.
    After changing pickups, this is another skyscraper.

    After changing pickups, this is another skyscraper.
    I do not know the body wood, but it is fairly neutral and different microphones installed mark a real difference.

    For musical styles, you can do anything, for example, put him EMG 81 or Di Marzio super distortion in the bridge and you're off to the Metal.
    For 2 single and applied in handle, Fender or Seymour Duncan, and you can play funk, blues, rock, etc..

    OVERALL OPINION

    Guiatre bought new in 1997 for 350 € at the time it was considered the entry level ... At the same price as Feder Mex is to tell you the entry-level Ibanez at the time ;)
    Nothing to do with today's models 150 or 200 €.
    After nearly 20 years, the guitar has not moved, Korean violin on top (I'm curious to see the guitars in this price today, how they will be in 20 years).
    In summary, a very handy guitar and more, through the choice of microphones, allows you to play whatever you want.

    Ibanez RX 40

    Ibanez RX40Published on 12/04/03 at 15:00
    I bought this guitar from a friend one year ago, for about 200$. I was a total beginner, and had no idea about electric guitars (I played classical).

    The guitar is very affordable, and you can be sure it's not handicapped, and it's not worse than its "big brothers". It gives you great rock, metal and blues sounds, and not many people will recognize the difference between the RX 40 and the RG series guitars.

    First of all, it works best with overdrive or distortion, but the clean sucks. I love jazz, but the clean sound of this guitar kinda drives off my motivation.
    Second, the vibrato bar gets this guitar out of tune, and I always had some tuning problems with it.

    The guitar is high quality, and it doesn't look like any cheap guitar. I never had any special problems.

    This is a great affordable guitar. It's a great guitar for beginners and a great practice guitar, much better than a Squier.

    at the time since I began, I worked mainly Metallica plans, I found the handle rather nice compared to my old Legend and Vantage buddy
    The guitar was pretty well balanced and lighter than other

    The microphones serious lack of potato on the other hand is a single coil
    The medium I used it ever
    The serious lack of such potatoes, the blow I gave him an upgrade I put a Duncan SH6 above the advice of my very bad thief seller, the result was not necessarily the appointment once turned on my Bandit 65 + Metal Zone, there was a little better, my friends thought it torn on the other hand we had scratch shit so it was not too hard to make a shit more

    OVERALL OPINION

    is an entry-level scratches not to be confused with a JEM or JS
    Not bad for beginning, as the way to learning the guitar is rather long it is used to check if we did not mislead the nettles with granny ... P
    I bought 21OO francs at the time was my second shovel, my first Ibanez I keep a special memory I had broken my piggy bank for my first job learning shit and my mother was the idea was pretty bad because it was sub 21OO francs at the time
    With the experience I would do because this choice began with a Gibson Les Paul is not ideal for me is to build, take your time and appreciate things, like good wine
