lairlair's review - Ibanez EXR170

Value For Money : Excellent Audience: Beginners
Early Ibanez Made in Indonesia.
Caractristiques: Wilkinson Bridge (with vibrato)
22 frets (jumbo ... I think not!)
1 humbucker in the neck position, 1 double and 1 single bridge between the two.
Slecteur micro 5 positions
A potentiomtre (= ring rglage) volume, potentiomtre in shade.
Rosewood, the wood for the body / table / end I do not know! The handle is made of raw wood (no paint or varnish). And body painting is black chrome. The mtal is used Gnrale style chrome finish.

UTILIZATION

The handle is an unnamed apprciabilit! It is soft to the touch, it is easy to play so late. CASC to acute, I would not give an opinion on it because I do not use hardly any. I was even good when parat.
General for finishing the guitar is irreproachable, unless you ask the moon, I think even his biggest strength. was still sober, but very effective. The rounded edges are very apprciables when playing seated. It is never play badly. In addition it is lgre within 3.4 kg.
Turning now to the sound. The I'm a bit more mixed. The pickups are Ibanez. It's not big but has great sound holds up. We can do little prs what you want, this guitar is versatile, thanks to the particular mix of coils (1 single and 2 double).
The vibrato is not used easily: you have to get a tiny screw buried the rear of the rack to tighten stricted vibrato. The bridge is probably the biggest weakness of this guitar.
But finally, for this price, this guitar is really very very good. This is my first electric guitar, and after 4 years of loyal service I'm still not tired (what you see in the sounds ...). Better vibrato and I put 10!

SOUNDS

I play mostly rock. The bridge pickup ragissait what style. I mainly played on this microphone, I did not like the others but still very personal.
I changed the original pickups. Once I had the ear a little more refined, I found that my pickups were desperately short of tonal clarity. This has motivated my change.
But the pickups are very good base, but I was RPTE accsa prs little while if it is not super demanding.

OVERALL OPINION

I use this guitar for 4 years. I tried a few other good models, I must say that I am not of this guitar, considering its price. Once the pickups changed, I find it almost perfect ... Again this problem vibrato the ***, but can still rgler ...
In conclusion I would say that this guitar is really IDAL for beginners in the world of electric. It goes from beginner level to confirm my opinion. For very small budget it may not be given 230, but still very cheap in view of the quality. So I put 9 because the report is really very good qualitprix, if not excellent.
This review could seem somewhat logieux, but we must keep in mind the price range in which this guitar is.
