Yes! Stratode the shape of the guitar allows to go frquemment and easily.

Lightweight and ultra-flat compare my Gibson Explorer I t Seriously Drout passing from one another when I bought the Ibanez.
- Gets it easy to sound good ...?
Bah condition that the guitar is in good condition. Otherwise, I would not see the problem ... or
9/10 also, cf. highest since for the same reason.
- Appropriate your style of music?

At home: Amplitube Mtal on my pc with MOTU Ultralite Soundcard
In studio or repeats: Rocktron Chameleon on Peavey Classic 50/50 output in a 4 * 12 X or Y (in general a Marschall)
- What kind of sound you get and with what rglages ("crystalline", "bold", ....)?
Overall, the sounds have a very good definition. It's not a guitar with his drool.
Compar Gibson or Seymour Duncan pickups, the sound will be much less fat, but less "crystalline" as Fender.
The cleans sound clear, ars, not too slammin. Just play with the slecteur pickups and Tone for a sound a little jazzy, bluesy see but 'must not dreaming, you will not have a velvety ES-335!
In the saturated then a Good gouache! I apprhendais the quality of the original pickups, but I find them really good as is that I do not intend to change it.
The palm mute are aggressive (the good "crum-crum" that goes well), not to drool in serious. Of course, the microphones do not have the gain of the EMG, but the output level is suitable.
If I had to generalize, this guitar is doing very honorably in little prs all types of sound, thanks to some of its neutrality including but mostly good or very s good definition sound and microphones.
If I had to criticize something, it is perhaps this neutrality. It lacks some-be a little character, so to speak.
But, I quickly forget that notion when I play metal, especially because I asked the precision and sound balance that allows me to my dfinir its after my pre amp.
I put 8/10 because this type of sound would please maybe not everyone and I have a preference for a sound EMG fawn.
- How long have you use it?
4 years now.
- What is the particular feature you like best and least?
the +, the handle, the sound.
the - the single layer of varnish the guitar (at least on the model I possde (GTA 2020) which gives the impression that the hand slides on guitar and pet 'that accumulates more fast on the guitar as another ...
- Have you tried many other models before acqurir?
A small package, yeah. Upscale as the plastic toy.
- How do you report qualitprix?
A little expensive, because I find it unfortunate that we should put Ibanez at least 1500 to have a good model that makes sense over time.
But the quality is it's on, whether or violin sonority!
- With the exprience, you do again this choice ...?
Hmmm ... not sure, because I fall on a lot of models of guitars DIFFERENT!
In globality this cause I put 8/10 report qualitprix guitar a bit pricey and a little varnish spcial slipping and quickly take the blows.
Edit the 12/03/09: I finally changed the pickups for other home Dimarzio (Evolution and The Breed) as the original ones, despite a good performance, lacked personality!
Also, I'm going to redo the paint by a luthier because the guitar is too easily blows. So, I have a point baiss note on sonorits but I keep the overall score is unchanged because the rest of the very good stuff!

Berzin's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
I think everything has t said. Irreproachable finish, aesthetics flattering. A very beautiful instrument. The back is beautiful with the neck through.
The instrument is Lger, well balanced stick is flat like a classical guitar, very pleasant. Ergonomics is hardly taken into default. Has any thoughts for the effectiveness of play Vibrato is Designed and we have all the tools to rglage.
I used this guitar with a Bogner Ecstasy. So the ultimate amp. In disto, we get a fairly specific on his, although very flattering that supports high gain levels. Ideal for modern musical genres. In clear and crunch is that the things gtent. Ds that returns from small gain levels, the sonority is losing its great, it becomes at best terribly ordinary, straight and without an ounce of character. At the scene of a good Gibson or a Start. No grain. I think we should either have use down the distortion, but not play clear or occasionally crunch, or else shield the sound effects of any kind for bearing the flatness of the instrument. In this case, neutrality may be an advantage.
I used this guitar a few months. Gaps in the clear / crunch as too blatant. However I will appreciate the fit and finish that many U.S. brands dare approach even in their dreams. But choosing between sound and comfort ... To buy knowingly.
