Wasn't expecting it this good!

This was my first "shreddy" guitar. I've played for 40 years, and have owned many, many guitars, including some very high end guitars. I'm not a fan of metal, so I've only played "conventional" Ibanez, which I have also found good. (Artist and Artstar series) Why did I buy this? I could lie and tell you it's the fantastic pickups (truly very good), or the versatile 5-way switching (real strat tones) or the well-designed controls, excellent fretwork, or the incredible upper-fret access, or the absolutely phenomenal neck. (Satin, maple, very flat radius) It has all of those things, but I won't lie. I bought it for 2 reasons. 1. It's barely over 5 pounds and extremely comfortable (very important for an old man like me!) 2. It's absolutely beautiful! The big surprises for me were the build quality and the versatile tones you can get. I use it regularly playing classic rock and even jazz, and it sounds and plays great! Tough to go wrong with this one.

Amazing for the Price

First off I am an Ibanez addict. So, I lean toward Ibanez in a very strong way. I was so happy when this model became available at Sweetwater. As soon as I saw that it was in stock I bought one.If you have not played a Saber (the S on S621QM stands for the Saber body type) then you do not know what you are missing. The Saber is the most ergonomic and comfortable body shape that there is. Some prefer the RG shape, but I prefer the Saber. The body is so thin and light. The cable input is out of the way and you can play standing or seated and not have to think about it. And still the body is the very musical wood mahogany.The AANJ neck joint makes accessing all frets hassle free. The radius is very flat and some players favor a rounder fretboard, but for metal and more aggressive and progressive styles you cannot beat a wizard neck. You get a wide variety of tones from the 5 position blade. And the pickups are good.The pickups are very good... I spent all day today playing all of my guitars trying to find the best comparison for these Ibanez Quantum pickups. The Quantum are hot pickups designed for rock to metal. They are hot (around 18k for the bridge and 15.5 - 16k for the neck) and they are ceramic, not alnico. So they do bite. They are pretty similar to the Evolution pickups, but they are brighter with a tad more sizzle and a tad less crunch. Very clear. I will probably swap them out for Dimarzios, but I will use these Quantum pickups in something. There is nothing wrong with them. They were used on Prestige releases from Ibanez.The wizard neck is fast. The bridge is very minimal. I wanted and I prefer a hard tail. Most of my guitars have vibratos and I have been trying to get guitars with hard tails as these guitars feel more solid and are so much more fun to play and work with. Recording with a hard tail for rhythm is so much quieter and easier than recording vibrato equipped guitar.Now my complaints: I think Ibanez could have used a hard tail with slightly more mass to it and still made the same amount of profit. I am not big on the finish on this guitar. The quilted maple top is WAAAAAYYYY more stunning and beautiful in person, but this guitar has that non glossy flat finish to it -- like what Gibson is putting on their cheaper models. It is that dry vinyl type stuff. That is the finish on the neck as well and I am not a fan.I also dislike the dot inlay on the fretboard. I cannot see the dots at all when playing. I will probably have my friend who is a luthier professionally put block inlays in this neck. The setup was all wrong when the guitar came. The neck's truss rod is way too loose and I may have the frets leveled and polished, but the action is good with minor tweaking. The frets are tall and of a narrow to medium width. Not so high as to have a scalloped feel, but a high - ish fret. AND no gig bag? Okay it is a five hundred dollar guitar -- we don't get a case, but no gig bag? Really Ibanez? What would cost to Ibanez be to include a gig bag? Five Bucks?I am really nit picking as the guitar once tweaked with plays and sounds great. It almost plays and sounds as good as my highly modified fifteen hundred dollar Ibanez's. If you want an Ibanez or a new guitar ... even if you are just starting out and if you want a guitar to grow into, get this guitar. Amazing value for the money. The pickups are on par with new Dimarzios or Duncans and the play-ability cannot be beat once you set it up to your personal style.
