I was looking at an ibanez RG220 but i got this instead because im not really into metal, plus this baby is lighter. i would definatly buy this guitar again if it were stolen, or i might purchase something from the "s" series. i would like it if it were an HH config, but the HSS config gives me more options for blues and whatnot.
fav. aspect: the sounds!!!
worst aspect: the pickups could be more distorted
Model Year: 2003
Price: $340.00 (new)
Where Obtained: guitar center

materials: mahogany body, maple neck, rosewood fretboard
frets: 22 medium, 6 strings
controls: 5 way switch, vol and tone knobs
pickups: HSS powersound (factory)
style: double cut
bridge: SAT30 bridge, like a strat bridge, but you a also raise tones
tuners: ibanez, locking
Very easy to change the action, extremely fast neck, plays very well, better than my friends schecter, and another friends standard strat
I play it through a digitech rp200a to a peavey rage 158. i mainly use this for rock and blues, but i can handle metal pretty well too. the sound is very warm and the pwersound pickups create a very nice "spank" also. no hum, even on the single coils. this baby seems to come "alive" on stage but i think thats just me. never been in the studio.
It can go to gigs just fine, i usually dont bring my backup unless im going to use it on a song. ive never had to adust it from the factory or anything, the only problem with controld are the switch knob came off but it dont matter, usually if its out in really cold weather it changes in tuning, but its your fault if youve got in the cold
