Audiofanzine FR's review (Ibanez - AGS83B)

By Audiofanzine FR, 29/11/2008
(Originally written by vincent palmer/translated from Audiofanzine FR)
In short:

- guitar made in China (and what about quality? I find it very good!);

- very easy access to the upper frets (surprising for such a guitar!);

- IBANEZ humbucker pickups (sound ok);

- tune-o-matic bridge (seems to be rugged!);

- Les Paul-style volume and tone controls except for the toggle switch, which is too close to the controls;

- set neck with Gibson profile (not too thick!).

UTILIZATION

Very comfortable neck with an exceptionally easy access to the upper frets considering it's a hollowbody guitar. The guitar looks like a bulky Les Paul with two F-holes. It is rather heavy and the body tends to tilt when played sitting down (like a Les Paul). The body is quite thick (43 mm) so the acoustic sound reminds an ES335 but the sound is thinner. The pickups produce a good sound both clean and distorted. I play blues rock and the guitar is great for that particular style. I adjusted the guitar for a low action but still the neck allows you to play slides smoothly.

SOUNDS

This guitar perfectly fits my playing style (blues rock). I play it with a 100-watt Fender amp and I get good crunch and distortion sounds with every pickup combination. Very good clean sound (these Ibanez pickups on all budget jazz models sound best clean).

Considering the high-quality manufacturing (finish, neck, etc.), I think it's worth a pickup upgrade.

OVERALL OPINION

I bought it new on the web and the value for money is amazing!

This guitar is kind of a single cut ES335 with huge possibilities.

Considering its overall quality this guitar really deserves better pickups. If you do that you'll get a very good jazz guitar or an exceptional blues rock guitar (that's its favorite music style). I already ordered two GFS pickups.

As a summary, this guitar offers an excellent (unbeatable) value for money.

Once the pickups have been upgraded this guitar can compete with much more prestigious and expensive models...

UTILIZATION

The handle is you just get used to when we used a telecaster but well before 10 minutes is good.
CHAC in acute is really easy.
Great shape but quite loudre for this style of guitar but it's beautiful.
The sound is beautiful and this guitar can play a lot of things even if it is a guitar for blues / jazz / rock I use it for the garage-rock ind a must.

SOUNDS

Fully Yes, I use a pedal and a marshall mg30cdr Berhnger OD100 rule and when it's all great and there really is way to laugh and get cool sounds.

OVERALL OPINION

I use it for two weeks, the guitar is beautiful and the perfect finish Ibanez did a great (yes sometimes) it is well worth an Epiphone and a largely first act.
Super scratch for someone who's level but not too

The handle in addition to being beautifully fine thanks beautiful inlay of abalone is very pleasant and offers great comfort of play ..

Access to acute (recent freight) is it easy? : Then yes! This is one of the great highlights of this guitar! Alone and it goes well even at the bottom of the handle!

When was the holding that is perfect ausi well that sitting upright ..

AAh yes! This scraper is made for the support, and it stands out in this specific area that is a beast for the support!
