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!

My great first guitar!
Bogdan_, 26.05.2020
Being my first guitar is difficult to have a pertinent opinion as I don't have other to compare.
Before buying I saw a lot of people dis-considering entry level guitars but this one is very well made and the setup was really good from the factory.
The neck is straight, the strings height and intonation are setup up correctly form the factory. You just need to tune it and is ready to go.
I don't have cons but I can suggest some improvements:
- the fret ends can have a little better finish.
- not necessary but nice to have, in the future, I will put locking tuners.
Overall is a great first guitar!

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.
