I've always been skeptical when it comes to buying guitars on-line and when you add a $2500 plus price tag to it, it just plain scares me. Well, Ibanez and Sweetwater hit a home run on this one. This guitar practically plays itself. Sorry Gibson and PRS, Ibanez wins. I understand why Herman Li plays this guitar. The tonal variations are great. The pick-ups are hot. The tremolo holds great tune. It's the best playing and sounding guitar I've had in my 30+ years of performing. Plus the people at Sweetwater, Andrew in particular, made the sale a great experience. Before you spend your hard earned money on the Gibson's and PRS's, check Ibanez out. You won't be disappointed.
