Ibanez X Series (Ibanez - XPT700FX)

By MGR/BRUCE CROTZER, 04/07/2004
THE FIRST GUITAR I BOUGHT BACK IN 1980 IT WAS A REPLICA OF THE GUITAR THAT PHIL COLLIN PLAYED IN DEF LEOPARD. I GOT IT AT SINE`S MUSIC STORE IN QUAKERTOWN, PA. NO LONGER THERE...PAID ABOUT 400.00 DOLLARS

THIS GUITAR NOT ONLY LOOKS GOOD BUT SCREAMS ROCK AND ROLL! BLACK WITH WHITE HARDWARE, LOOKS SIMULAR TO THE GIBSON DESTROYER BUT HAS MUCH SHARPER LINES AND EDGES. WITH TRIPLE PICKUPS, IT REALLY HAS A LOT OF POWER AND DIFFERENT SETTINGS FOR POWER BALLADS AND THOSE ROCKIN MEDLEYS

NOTHING, EXCEPT I DONT HAVE TWO !!

THIS GUITAR STAYS IN TUNE ALL THE TIME, IT FEELS GREAT AROUND YOUR NECK, AND FEELS GOOD ON THE HANDS TOO, AFTER 25 YEARS OF PLAYING IT IT STILL GIVES ME THE SOUND QUALITY IT HAD WHEN NEW. THE NECK HAS BEEN IN THE SHOP ONCE IN ALL THE TIME I`VE HAD IT AND IT IS AWESOME

I`M GLAD I BOUGHT THE GUITAR WHEN I DID BECAUSE THERE WEREN`T MANY MADE, 500 OR SO, EVERYWHERE I GO, YOUNG KIDS ASK ME WHAT KIND OF GUITAR IS THAT? AND THEY ARE ASTONISHED THAT IT IS AS OLD AS THEY ARE, OR OLDER. ITS A GREAT IMPORTED GUITAR, AND I`D PUT IT AROUND MY NECK AT ANY GIG AND EXPECT NOTHING BUT GREAT FEEL AND SOUND FROM IT.

In a closed world to infinite universe. (Ibanez - XPT700)

By V old man on the hill, 01/08/2012
The swordtails is manufactured in Indonesia under the eyes require the Japanese parent.
The vibrato is an Ibanez Edge III (cut the cords side scoops, not glop)
The neck-through a wizard III 24 cases with complete access.
Mics of origins, D Di marzio activator (my model has a kit EMG 60/81).
One volume, one tone and a 3 position switch togle.

UTILIZATION

Here we are back in the world of subjectivity. Well it has taken a hit. For I come from the world of pop rock or vintage guitars and classical forms part of the dress code imposed by this style. If I remain an old fart as a bassist, guitarist asleep inside of me decided to get a big kick in the ass, leaving aside Les Paul and TVs, to finally take a step forward towards more lutheries techniques that I was not expected to evolve.
The extreme form of swordtails with its impeccable painted chameleon green / blue me baffled. And this guitar seemed to insult all my values. My main fear concerned the handle and ultra modern flat profile usually inappropriate for fans of vintage. But strangely reassuring thick painted fan of Gibson and I am such access does not really refuse. The gameplay is complete, all doors and dogmas Ă©clat.D fly in a closed world to infinite universe.

SOUNDS

Style who cares only the music matters. Why deprive instruments exceptional playability optimal, why?
These brands Ibanez, Jackson, EMG, Tama, Mxr, digitech respect nothing and assume to make mistakes the son of time. And that's how things have evolved without my assistance. But the guardian of the temple has retired and I frantically shrede as to make up for lost time.

OVERALL OPINION

In summary I recommend has all the metalheads to test green yellow red Stratocasters, and especially to other daring move on marble in the history of the electric violin. Under the paving stones the beach.

OVERALL OPINION

Very good quality / price / look for metalheads loving slap sounds, without pushing to the extreme as EMG active D-Activator are among the best passive.

Required to perfect agreement, even strings unblocked.

A thousand times yes I remake this choice.

bfred's review (Ibanez - XPT700)

By bfred, 10/06/2007
Mtalleux a great guitar with a bunch of crazy characteristics.
-24 Frets
-quip the all-new D-Activator Dimarzio in the bridge and neck
-System Tremolo Edge 3
-Manche Neck thru so great Sustain
-Superb Color Red Chamlon that changes from red to orange to green

USE

-ct Handle any problem is to bomb pure wholesale tat is the good old Ibanez 24 frets is very accesible since the horn leaves enough space for the fingers .dropoff window
-It's Not really a heavy guitar for guitar Mahogany
-The Form cracks me up because it is a small copy of the Jackson Warrior but the color is a standard for Xyphos

SONORITS

-I Believe that this guitar is made for me since it is made for mtalleux and the form will agree not to Blues.
-I Play with a Marshall MG100HDFX and gain increased thanks to the power of D-Activator picks ups and I believe that my Crate Blue Voodoo will in benefits.
-The Sound is rather well dcouper with the large distortions and EVERY Notes resortent well dtaillbr /> -In short, all sounds that is for the bridge pickup or the neck pickup are really high caliber.

NOTICE GLOBAL

I only used in store and it remains for me only has conomiser and I'll get me. This guitar is new for Ibanez, and it's really managed to extra sounds are the model out of the ordinary Chez Ibanez.
I try a lot of guitar in my life and I believe that this is a guitar that I was most pater with its color model and its sonority handle.
For the price only $ 940 Canadian (sorry I think it's nothing because when I buy my ibanez prestige of the year 2006, he did me a $ 1650 Canadian (red soil so now I wonder what because it is so chre.
In short it is a bomb and it still awaits me in pretty shops
