The Ibanez RG320FM is one of the more recent import offerings from the company. They built them in a variety of factories but most of them that I've seen come out of Indonesia. It features a basswood body with a nice figured maple top (likely a veneer though) and a maple neck with rosewood fretboard, 24 frets, and the infamous super-thin Ibanez Wizard neck profile. The tuners are standard sealed models, and the bridge is the Ibanez Edge Pro II, a variation on the famous Ibanez Edge bridge of the late '80s. It has two Ibanez Powersound humbuckers mated to a volume control and a tone control with a 5 way selector switch for lots of tonal combinations.
The design of this guitar is pretty standard for Ibanez. The basswood and maple combination is my personal favourite and it works well on this guitar. It's fairly light and compact. The neck heel is fantastic as usual (the Ibanez AANJ) and the upper fret access is pretty stunning too. The only gripe I have is with the Wizard profile, as it's just too thin for my hands. However many shred players will absolutely love this guitar as it's just a dream to play.
Getting a good sound out of this guitar isn't really difficult. The stock pickups aren't the best in the world, but through a good amp all the frequency ranges come through and produce some great tones, both clean and dirty.
This guitar is simply an evolution on the classic Ibanez RG, so it was meant to be plugged into a higher gain amp such a Marshall, Mesa Boogie, Peavey or similar. I found the clean tones to be a bit anemic at best... they were a little on the sterile side and though there was a nice sparkle sometimes, I didn't find them convincing enough for funk, blues or jazz work. The drive tones were pretty good for sure. I would prefer the tone of some DiMarzio or Seymour Duncan pickups, but the Ibanez pickups in there do a decent enough job for what it is. The neck pickup has a nice dark quality that is great for leads, and the bridge pickup has a good bite, excellent for rhythms or more articulate lead work.
All in all I think the Ibanez RG320FM is a decent guitar for anyone looking for a good playing shred guitar on a budget. The basswood/maple combo is my personal favourite and the tones out of this guitar aren't bad either. The bridge holds good tune, the quality is there and it looks pretty classy too. They can be had for about $300 used which isn't a bad deal for a flame top RG, so if you're into that kinda vibe, this one might be worth a look.
The RG320FM is an electric guitar I am not 100 percent where it was made but it was made in the late 1950s and 1960s. It has 22 frets and three pickups and switches to control each of them. It also has a volume knob and a whammy bar.
The RG320FM is quite easy to play and the neck has an overall nice feel to it. It is easy to access the top notes and in general feels good on the fingers. This guitar is extremely light in weight and has a really cool shape and overall look to it. It is easy to get a good sound out of it, and has a variety of different types of tones you can get by mixing and matching the three different pick ups.
The inherent sound of this guitar is clean and definitely sounds like the era it came from. It is perfect for playing 60's rock and roll and surf type of music, but would sound good in just about any situation you wanted to play rhythm guitar. It also sounds good for playing lead, but is probably better suited for rhythm guitar. The clean sound is great, and throwing a bit of overdrive on this always sounds good. While this isn't the best sounding guitar I've ever heard, and it definitely won't rival a Fender Stratocaster or a Gibson Les Paul, the tone is respectable and unique.
This guitar was the first guitar my father ever bought, so it has been in the family for quite a while. My favorite part about this guitar is simply how cool it looks. The overall vintage look and shape of this guitar is unique and extremely awesome. If you can find one of these used, they won't run you too much and are definitely worth looking into in my opinion, especially if you play a lot of 60's rock and roll.
