Beautiful

The picture does not do this guitar justice! It is a beauty! It was playable right out of the box. I may replace the pickups someday, but not necessary, just a preference.

Killer axe for a killer price!

Just bought this Ibanez 450DX and Im really impressed how Ibanez has picked up their game. This axe is killer to play, and I dig the color - very cool! The trem really impressed me as there are a lot of lousy trems on guitars at this price, but this trem is great. It does not go out of tune after some serious wanging! Now the INF pickups, some guitar players have commented that the INF pickups don't have any thump, I beg to differ these pickups sound great, and across the 5-way switch each tone is distinct, and no major volume drop-off. The neck is fab, fat, wide, thin and just built to shred: badass! All in all in my opinion, this the best guitar at this price for this kind of model period. There is none better: you get the best of all worlds, and unlike Gibson's Les Paul Standard which is expensive, the Ibanez RG Standard is just as good or in some opinions better: its the RG Standard. And the MC100 case is fab tool, perfect fit, no slack, its plush and excellent price 100l, you definitely want the case if you buy this guitar. I told Ibanez the RG Standard only needs more cool colors in its range, but don't change nothing!
Music background: Pro musician keeping to real!

Great guitar at this price

Played pretty nice right out of the box. Setting intonation for my strings and adding a TB4 bridge pickup to it was all I needed to put this into rotation with my other stage guitars. I really like the metal flake blue finish and so do my band mates! This one's a keeper for sure. Thinking about snagging another one before they become hard to find.
Music background: Have played guitar and other things for 35 years.
