    this is a relatively new guitar(i got mine the month it was released) so i thought id put a review up, because i have gotten alot of questions about it.

    FEATURES:
    This guitar features a 26 1/2" scale, which allows for higher tension, hence, the use of lighter strings becomes possible without sacraficings playability. it has two humbuckers, which are custom wound V77 and V88. it also features the Edge Zero-7 tremolo bridge. one volume knob, and a reverse input jack, so the cable never comes out during shows.

    SOUND:
    i have played a lot of very very nice guitars, and this is among my favorite, the bridge pickup is clear and articulate sounding, great for technical death metal riffs, or low chugging. midle position offers my favorite chimey clean tone, and a great setting for two hand tapping. neck pickup is rich and perfect for searing lead runs and sweeping. on clean, this guitar is EXTREMELY bright sounding. it sounds good to me. also the pickups clean up very nicely with the volume knob.

    ACTION, FIT & FINISH:
    When i recieved mine, i found the action to be higher than i expected. the low strings were very high off, and the high strings were a little better, but stiff very high. no harm though, it came with a multipurpose ool, and i lowered it very quicky, and now it plas like a dream. te finish is very cool, a satin black. but it is prone to chipping off if you hit the edge, as i have done(very tiny on the edge during a gig) so be careful.

    RELIABILITY:
    i have had it since may 20th, and have nt had a single issue. i have gigged it alot, and it has been on the road, soits been through sort of field testing.

    CUSTOMER SUPPORT:
    havent had to deal with them yet.

    OVERALL RATING:
    amazing guitar, has all the features a metal player needs, and has awesome tone. 5 stars.:agreed::metal::yesway:

    there's really no need to change the stock pickups in this guitar, they are completely fine on their own, bareknuckle or dimarzios will not make much difference..

    i beg to differ, i fodun the stock ones better than the ones that came before, but Bareknucke makes a huge difference for me, far more character in barenuckle, tighter, and more defined

    the stock pickups sound muddy. why do you have to bring that attitude in a good review?

    I never was a fan of the stock ibanez pickups. But i love where they put the pickup selector on this guy :) totally awesome for switching pickups when going for some tech tap's

    I love mine to bits. the stock pickups were usable but have been upgraded. Only complaint is that the finish is amazingly ridiculously fragile.
