This guitar is perfect other than the pickups, I would definitely buy this guitar again.

Some of my friends think it's heavy but I don't think it is.(They are probably just a bunch of pansys.)

Made in US Amazingly smooth thin maple neck, rosewood fretboard. 22 Jumbo frets 1 Volume, 1 Tone, 2 humbuckers and 1 single-coil Ibanez pickups, 5-way pickup selector switch H-S-H pickup configuration Great locking tremolo with locking nut which keeps the guitar in tune for weeks
Even though the guitar has jumbo frets I can still obtain a low action and with the thin neck allows me to play faster and smoother. Compared to other guitars I've played this guitar is much easier to play.
Sound Quality:
I use this guitar with a Marshall 30W MG and it sounds great with the bridge pickup. You can also acheive a nice warm lead sound with the neck pickup. I play mostly metal/shred but you can definitely play country or blues with single-coil or with the humbuckers in split-coil mode. I am however considering putting new pickups in.
This guitar is reliable enough for any situation. I had the guitar setup once(I was messing with the action) and it has been fine since When I received the guitar the tone pot was low put that was easily fixed.

Exellent Guitar! I have 2 more JACKSON guitars, and the IBANEZ kicks ASS! it has the coolest Metal sound, and it is really fun to play.
It is excellent for playing live, i already had.. once a week or something i tune it, it stays tuned most of the time. the EMG pics Really Do it justice...
