In terms of technical specifications, nothing like a visit to the site ptite Ibanez ...
Basically: Channel Wizard jumbo frets, mahogany body (so it looks like a very light scratch balsa).
Ibanez pickups and tremolo.
Made in Korea of course.
Gameplay is at nickel: the handle end is all accessible frets.
As it is very light you can play standing long without getting tired.
The sound is very round and with a good definition (original pickups).
I play rock / metal with this guitar. It is quite versatile but has no real personality, as a lot of Ibanez products, but it does not bother me.
I use all the config microphones depending on the style of song.
I use it for 1 year 1 / 2 I think.
She is very nice but I'm going to quote kkes notorious defects: the vibrato is quite ... um ... crap I dare not use it too. After changing the strings it looks to go a little better in accuracy but it is not a Lo Pro ....
Another prob: strap bindings débinent se ... often this: it is because of the wood used and no screws that get damaged Rapidos as the wood is soft ...
The one in the other I love this kind of guitar, so do it again I would take over the model or model Satriani.

guitarnono's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)
Channel 22 frets, 2 humbuckers and a single microphone.
Micro switch 5 positions:
- Bridge + middle
- Neck + middle
Vibrato bridge floyd
One volume knob and one for tone.
The neck has jumbo frets
The handle is very nice: it's pretty late, allows good access to acute (still less a series RG).
Placed on the knees, this guitar has a good balance. It is neither too light nor too heavy.
But it is very thin (it is a S-Series> Sabre ...), which is very convenient notament live (after a little getting used to anyway).
Finally, it takes the agreement without any problems, crashes through the nut-string (and no it's not bad!)
Sound side, we get a sound versatile enough (except perhaps for the funky rhythms, double mic forces), but without much personality.
I play mostly metal (mainly Vai, Satriani, Dream Theater ...).
The amp I use usually is small (20 watts), and the sound that comes out is good, but nothing more ...
But beware, connected to a good tube amp is something else! One obtains leads sublime, clear sound of madness, without adding special effects!
In general, I play with sounds leads the bridge and neck pickups, and with sounds clear position on the bridge pickup + micro environment. I rarely use the middle pickup alone, because I found out he did nothing very interesting style of music I play, but I think it might be interesting to use in blues or jazz.
I have been using now 3ans1 / 2.
This guitar is my second, and I must say it changed me from my previous strat, on all levels (violin, sound ...)
In addition, it has a sleek look, but at the same time it is very out on stage (at least for the purple version). The varnish is a little straw, and it's very beautiful!
For me the price / quality ratio is excellent.
With experience, I think I do it again the same choice for the same budget.
But with a bigger budget, I'll type in the high-end RG, which may correspond more to my style of music.

See notice below
what about .... TRS ibanez floyd, Volume, Tone, Wizard II neck
micro base are Powersound ibanez home (nothing to dcoller a donkey)
The handle is really enjoyable, the key sympatoche under the fingers, the frets a little weird in the treble but will (given the price)
lgre enough but I would still have been a good ecranchure for the elbow (because once you drop it hard to do without)
the sounds are fairly easy to obtain, most styles suits him but not really excel in a particular so versatile
Ah so small criticism due to vibrato in the first rod I redrss vibrato to make it more accesible and second always have to tighten to readjust the tuning but hey you get used to it (especially since I shoot more that I do)
I'm a fan of Steve Vai, so I changed the pickups and by evo! wow! no photo
more I am a luthier in rgler (neck, pickups, electronics, frets, etc. What the total)
As my first guitar I customizes death
I behind a ds-1 japan => ada mp2 => tc g-major => mesa 50/50 => marshall 1960 A
dcoiffe get sounds that, even with the old microphone was serious drinking (but a little mushy and imprecise in the spectrum)
the solis has come easy vai only problem ...... 22 boxes !!!!! but hey it ngligeable
in with the old microphone spliut taient clean sounds really cool (especially with a good eq behind)
I have 3 years and 1 year do I have customisbr /> before her silent sympatoche but no more
then after the luthier you realize that a guitar is well worth 600 rgler ..... 1000 almost a guitar or even more (I will not say names) to direct the seller
I try a lot of model in the same price range new and I admit that it is a good choice but trs rcemment I SSAI a Washburn N2 400 and I found terrible for the price (especially since it also had a luthier rgl t)
The pros:-very easy to play
- A report worthy of qualitprix ibanez
the -:-a vibrato somewhat limited (note the new models have the z vibrato and I know him)
Micro-normal limit, but given the price
-A cranchure and 24 cases have t cool sword in a series

Sword series (ultra-fine)
light, light! thank you back and shoulders, but as discussed below, there is no damage to notch for the forearm, it would graze the top!
to, I forgot, this is the version for left-handed (370 L) that I have, re-regret, it is in black (ah-gray metal would have more!).
vibrato is my block with a wedge, I hate vibrato, and in addition, it is more annoying to change the strings
Channel: must love the dish! so subjective, I will not dwell! I metalheads, and I like to speed it brings! Access to the acute is good, not great!
the sound is correct, I change the 2 humbuckers with a sd TB6 in Chevallet and dm norton dp160 in handle, I use never the central! So, I adapted to my tastes and it provides very good!
blocks, strings and vibrato (I repeat blocked) an obligation to make sure the tuning surprises me every day! you change the strings, you give 2 or 3 times and then you put your tuner at the bottom of your bag and forget you! always amazed after 3 years of use!
Micros suit my tastes, so excellent! I want to the manufacturer for not knowing my tastes in advance! it's still very versatile at the base!
I bought it because there was no choice left scratching quality "intermediate"!
1st prize is all rotten or too expensive! far, so good to me!
but shit, this unique range of colors somewhat irritates me! painting a scratch is more expensive than changing a micro )))
I like it but my guitar!
the violin is nice. (Mahogany)
EDIT of 05.07.2006
another scratch in my group and I "traded" our amps time ptite a song to see! It is equipped with ibanez prestige 2550 mount emg 81/85 on line6 HD147 half stack with a distortion of brute!
There's no photos and unanimously (again): s370 mount my Korean Duncan TB6 ATOMIZED its prestige made in japan in emg !!!!!! denser, thicker, heavier, warmer, total defenestration !!!!!!
I was left for me assassin at first, but no! they all want me to take a 147 hd now! (But I prefer my lights! Even if the tape hd very hard!)
an unforgettable experience!
I also note that really, I love guitars mahogany wood more than others!
I think the prestige is in Poplar!
its prestige is sharp, but too much treble, and ten times shallower!
the EMG is not for me either! (But I respect)!
A little more than three years later, it's always a love story, even if the left handed washburn wi me 64 tries (especially for the look), but no risk of infidelity because the color "weathered wood" I like of course is not available for us "left hendrixiens up" !!!!!
ibanez very good, very good price / quality ratio!
Ibanez is one of the brands that offer the most scratch "correct" for left, that's why I love and respect that manufacturer!
I would do this choice! especially in metallic gray or gray-flamed
