« Improved 1620X »

Publié le 04/22/11 à 14:11
The 1820X is the evolution of the 1620X that was released before. It features mostly the same specs -- a basswood body, maple neck with rosewood fretboard, 24 frets, 2 humbuckers, 5 way switch, volume knob, tone knob, switch for the piezo and volume knob. However, this time, it also has a tone knob for the piezo which helps add even more versatility to this guitar.

UTILIZATION

Ibanez guitars are always very sleek in the way they're designed. The lower horn is cut far back to allow for easy access to the higher frets. The All Access Neck Joint makes it so that the neck joint doesn't get in the way when soloing in the higher register, too. The additional tone pot adds some more versatility to this from the previous model.

SOUNDS

The 1820X has a very nice sound that you'd expect from most Ibanez guitars made in Japan. The stock pickups are pretty dull sounding, but once you replace them, you're good to go for nearly any style. The piezos on this model are L.R. Baggs, so they sound fuller than certain other piezo brands out there. The tone pot allows you to further shape the guitar tone to your liking. Some people dislike basswood, but I really enjoy it for lead and fusion/progressive tones. It can be a very versatile wood if you know how to utilize it.

OVERALL OPINION

The 1820X is probably the model you want to look for if you're looking for an Ibanez with a built in piezo. It's not too hard to find, and it's more versatile than the 1620X. It's also not quite as expensive as some of the other "higher end" piezo models out there like the 2020X and 2120X. However, if you find a nice deal on the aforementioned guitars, you should really jump on them.
