More for your money than you would expect.

16.07.2015
I strongly recommend this Ibanez for several reasons. First of all its quality is what you would expect from an instrument much more expensive than it is. I have had several Gibsons ranging from Les Pauls to SGs, and indeed others too. This AR420-VLS played really well straight out of the box as they say and, although its power and presence were as strong as many of my Les Pauls and SGs, the setup of this guitar seemed much better too and wow, what a relief to have a guitar which was much lighter than its competitors from other manufacturers. Well done Ibanez, you seem to be holding to your quality of old.

Nice guitar but disappointed in the setup

Paul592, 18.05.2016
THE BAD:

Contrary to other reviews on here I found this guitar to have far too high an action out of the box, and upon lowering the bridge to where I like my action I can see why it was raised so high. The D and G string buzz to an unacceptable degree and on certain frets cut out completely when the action is where it should be (not too low either mind you I know its not a shred guitar). The frets needed more leveling in the factory and it just didn't happen. I will have to take this to my local tech to get it set up properly.

The "made in china" and serial number decal on the back of the head-stock was very chipped off upon arrival which I just find funny tbh. Its made of some very brittle material that I dont think will last longer than a few weeks of normal handling.

One other thing to keep in mind before buying this is the extreme top heaviness of this guitar. With a nylon strap it just swings head down as soon as you let go... Not good. Had to sew weights into a guitar strap in order to balance it out.

There was also signs on the fret-board that this guitar had been played a good bit before shipping and not cleaned after. (This had better not be a B-Stock sold for full price thomann)

There is also very noticeable runs in the finish on the very last fret on the fretboard.

Update: The tone control knob became very loose and I saw why after inspection. The pot control tabs had been crimped together too much, and as soon as I attempted to widen the gap to make it a snugger fit one of the tabs snapped off immediately. Now I'm left with 3 knobs and one horrible broken pot top. Thanks Ibanez. Back to my guitar tech for more work & more money out of pocket :(

THE GOOD:

This guitar is built quite well aside from the aforementioned problems, fret ends are perfect, binding is perfect, finish is almost flawless on the body. Mine is a two piece body, with the join about 3/4 the way down the bottom.

The sound is very nice and the options with the trisound switches give you a great variety of tones.

Upper neck access is great.

It's also very, very pretty.

In summation it's a good guitar for the money but the lowness in price is reflected in the poor setup and quality of materials.
