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.
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.
Well if i hadn't install the EMG's i don't know if it was still good enough for me to buy it again if it was stolen...
yet i'm really happy about the guitar it kicks ass..
- this guitar can't be any better, (I think) ;)..
