Correct 10 years ago, to avoid now

By Kountch, 31/07/2011
Guitar made in Korea.
Its shape is inspired by the JS series and configuration of microphones is that of RG (such as RG470 with which I was very hesitant at the time).
The composite body (luthite) gave an original side (or futuristic) but a posteriori does not bring anything to the sound or the stability of the guitar.
The handle is not too late.
It has 22 frets, two humbuckers and a single tone and volume, a 5-way switching and a Floyd Rose vibrato.
The stainless acastillage a little more than cheap black acastillage the RG 470 at the time ...


The handle is quite nice: end for speed but not too much.
Ergonomics are good, the correct weight.
Where it hurts the bottom adjustment and maintenance agreement: as any floating tremolo (Floyd Rose) must spend time to grant and regulate the spring tension The problem is that (unlike promised that the body luthite) it is easily Disagree with changes in temperature, are the rehearsals soon became an inferno (tuning arriving 15 minutes then 5 minutes every 20 minutes).
The day I wanted to change the drawing, I bit my fingers ...
So much so that I ended up blocking the Floyd Rose (with a cork ..) to use as a fixed bridge and I left on the shelf for a while.
Two years ago, I took the time to make a full adjustment (curvature of the neck, action, vibrato), and since I find it more enjoyable to play and a little less unstable.
Making jack tends to "loosen" and plugs for the strap have been glued / screwed back several times. Other than that it has aged rather well ...


The sound is correct with the original pickups, the combination humbucker, single coil, humbucker sound pallette allows a variety of choices for all play some styles (rock, pop, metal, funk, ...).
This guitar is quite versatile and can even daring acrobatic solos (handle end + Floyd Rose), for cons do not even consider a change of tuning between songs.
The pickups and bridge are just good sound without the neck pickup I like more, making me think disto a kind of intermediary between a double and a single (to try to understand).
The guitar sounds naturally a little sharp (due to the luthite?) And equalization needs to be adjusted accordingly.
The volume curve is not well adjusted to allow easy passage of a crunch to distortion by playing with the knob.


I cracked on this guitar for its looks and sounds inspired by JS oriented RG.
I was hooked at the beginning and have shunned in recent years because of difficulties tuning (thank you the Floyd Rose) and its lack of stability then I re-set two years ago and since then I take back taste ...
If I had the choice again today, I turn towards a newer model with a floating tremolo that would allow a better tuning and adjustment easier ...
I think in retrospect that one can find a much better guitar for the same price and that the body does not luthite much to the guitar (this material has also disappeared from the range Ibanez ...).

Channel 22 frets
3 micro (2 double and 1 single)
1 Floyd LOTR II
1 Volume and 1 Tone knob
Channel wizard


The handle is perfect (not as a model autan JS but almost)
The access to acute do not necessarily obvious, but with practice ...
General Ergonomics is really great (Ergodyne model requires), even if the guitar is a bit heavy.


The guitar is really typical crunch, clean, distortion ...
However, it should not really metal.
The pickups handle is really nice, especially in crunch.
The microphone stand is when he was a bit light in the gain which gives it a rock utlisation but no more.

I use it only for the Clean and Crunch sounds (blues)


I own this guitar for the past 1 year
I love its shape (type JS), its material, its handle and Floyd (although one would have Pro-edge was more fun anyway)
I do not like the bridge pickup, or its mechanical silver which (for my taste) a little cheap.

Having bought second-hand, I think its unbeatable value for money (250 euros).

This choice I would do without hesitation, because I have coveted this model long enough.

i paid £370 over the net from a company in England. I needed a second electric guitar, and after trying this one in a guitar shop in Aberdeen decided i prefered it to an Epiphone Les Paul Standard, but they wanted to charge me £500 for it.

The tone and sustain. Crank up the gain on your amp and let rip, it sounds amazing. With this guitar you'll never be worried that high string lead parts will sound too thin or wiry again. The neck is smooth and fast, far more comfortable than a Strat. It looks amazing(lets face it, when playing live this DOES matter)and the whammy bar can withstand a fair amount of abuse without going out of tune

I hate the locking trem, as a big fan of alternate tunings i thank god that i have another guitar to use, the neck pickup isnt that impressive either. If you want to do anything other than rock hard this guitar isnt for you, its brilliant if you want anything from Slash to Joe Perry to Satriani, but if you want to play something clean or funky then get a Strat instead

The guitar feels like it is bombproof, you feel you could happily smash it through the bass drum without too many problems, this is mainly due to the Ergodyne body. Although this stuff gives the guitar an awesome tone, it does weigh a ton, and it doesnt quite feel the same as real wood. 22 jumbo frets with no buzzing or choked notes just waiting for your 8 minute guitar solo. The locking trem doesnt hold its tuning quite as well as it should and the arm is made of cheap plastic and looks as though it may well snap off at any moment. For the price though there can be no complaints about the build quality.

A great rock guitar if you can take the locking trem. I've found that i can't and to be honest i wouldn't buy this again, however if you are a metal/shred player who needs the tuning stability this has to be the best thing on the market in its price range.

Without floyd type bridge, tuning it easier! Flat handle in-custody ibanez com! Micro humbucker, table again matrieau very beautiful!


Pleasant enough to handle the neo, but tries to play the pa nonplus brassens! Well for C power cord, or tire stops barrmais its light, it sounds great with distortion rather easily! Enough to see very slightly against the RG!


NO, its c his thing! Metal, prkoi not, but the rest give up! Its ... Bruille very, very cool with a good distortion of put1! (A lamp or style overdrive) The clenching enough! Harmonic furieu seen as crazy!
