I was looking for a doubleneck to avoid taking several guitars to gigs. It is heavy but sounds good and plays well. The neck construction is possibly a little too light but you can live with it. The most annoying thing is the neck selector switch being between the two bridges - you keep banging it!
Where Obtained: Music shop
Features:
I saw recently that someone is making a replacement bridge for the 12-string neck. Presumably with individual saddles so that you can get the thing in tune! Any info gratefully received.
Playability:
As a general purpose axe (which is why I bought it), it is fine. The main problem is making sure that the string ballends seat properly when re-stringing otherwise tuning can go haywire. The necks are a little 'bendy' but the action is very fast.
Sound Quality:
Sounds are good and the pickups are excellent. The 6-string neck has full-sounding units with lots of highs for a humbucker and the 12-string PU's are bright. It is a good all-round instrument with country twang and SG-style honk but with more bite.
Durability:
Make sure the strings are properly fitted! The controls (apart from the neck selector switch, which has been replaced once) are fine. The tuners are average so you might want to consider upgrading them.

When i'm bored on this guitar (and if i'll get some money first) i'll buy fender stevie ray vaughan stratocaster.
Features:
I usually don't like anything made in japan but my ibanez... it's great. the only bad thing on it is it's tuners. they may be old.
Playability:
'cause i'm not the best guitarist, i don't need the best guitar.
Sound Quality:
I play rock'n'roll and heavy rock via my marshall vs15r amp without effects.
Durability:
