Decent, but mediocre for metal
Bill Bourantas, 15.04.2021
I am a beginner level player and bought this guitar a year ago for metal.
Pros:
-Looks great
-Very light
-Quality metallic parts
-Well set up and easy to play out of the box
-Intonates well with heavier gauge strings
Cons:
-Small manufacturing defects. Small bump in the body's white outline, headstock's face wood got unglued at a corner, nut came loose, but no big deal for me
-Very easy to damage the body because of its light build
-Flat high gain sounds. Not sure if it's because of the light wood used in the crafting of the guitar or because of the pickups. I will replace the bridge pickup with a Black Winter and update if possible.
-385 euro is a bit expensive for what it offers, at least for my needs. It's probably fine if all you want is clean or low gain sounds, but then again I never use it that way.
Tl;dr Looks and plays great. If you want high gain sounds or a guitar that can take physical abuse, you should probably look elsewhere.

Great Guitar for the Price
Wiplash101, 08.03.2020
Really good quality. Feels great and intimate. Arrived in great condition and well set up.
Pros:
Great sound
Feels awesome
Really light weight and thin body
Beautiful design
Simplistic interaction
Tuners feel good
Neck plays fast and smooth

Cons:
(for some) light weight and thin body
The Mahogany body is really soft so can easily be dented or scratched. The bottom strap button screw go worn out when I screwed it back in after wanting to swap it out.
Tone might feel flat to some folks.

For the price this guitar is awesome as an upgrade developing past intermediate ability as a player.

Ibanez RGA42FM-BLF
Aleksandr Pershin, 22.11.2019
This is my first Ibanez (owning quite a few Fenders).. And here we go:
First impression: what a beautiful instrument - at this price point the Moon blue burst really impresses - what a nice finish for this price point. It is also a good weight (not too heavy, not too light) Ash body.

Finish: the overall finish from Body to Neck is good - the frets were finished well and the neck is untreated and smooth.

Pick-ups and sounds: having bought this as a 'shredder', it is surprisingly versatile in the sound area and suits many styles. It shreds very well though.

Having played it for a couple of days now, I haven't been able to find any Cons yet.

All said, I'm pleasantly surprised by the quality at this pricepoint!
