First, the looks are amazing, better than on the site. The dark coffee colour and "flame" are gorgeous. Second, this is a very light guitar, which I love, with no visible flaw and perfect set up out of the box for me. The strings were totally spotless, waw! As per the sound, the possibilities are numerous, with 2 boost/tone switches (sorry if the name is different) beyond the usual 4 knobs. So this has become one of my best guitars, and I have many. I love this model, totally recommended.
PS after a few weeks, one of the toggle switches has a contact problem. Not the first time I get issues on the knobs or switches on 500 E Ibanez models, so I think they should watch out. Took down a star. Still a great guitar otherwise.
