Great Locking trem guitar for many styles at great price.
Flying Dutchie 09.10.2019
I have played for many years and was looking to see if I would like a guitar with a Locking Tremolo.. I also wanted something that would play some of the heavier tunes better. 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. Humbuckers are hot but combined with single coil can give some nice mellow tones.

Tremolo: was the feature for me I wanted to try. Equiped with the Edge Zero II entry level locking tremolo, I found tuning and set-up easy.. I played and divebombed and pulled away and it stayed well in tune. If you're a serial divebomber you will probably need some fine tuning now and again... but nothing annoying (I guess if you're a serial divebomber, you know this ;-) )

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!

Great look and sound, poor quality
AlexNZ 12.07.2018
Looks really amazing. Sound is clear and bright with very detailed mids and somewhat scooped lows. I found it great for practice, where all nuances and mistakes are visible.
I can't say the tremolo is good, after few divebombs it went out of tune, but maybe I would get used to it and find the way to use it without going out of tune... But in general I did not see much difference between this Edge-Zero II and cheap FRS that I have on my other guitar. Actually my old FRS stays in tune better, or it's me being accustomed to using it in a way that it stays in tune.
The reason why I sent it back is poor quality, particularly of the fretboard. It looks like the frets were cut very inaccurately, so when they were installed the edges were so uneven that it could not be fixed by the filing. Nevertheless, it did not stop the unknown "master", so he kept going and cut through the fretboard leaving ugly ditches next to the most uneven frets. One can ignore such a minor flaws if it would do the job and the frets were smooth, but not at all! In fact they were still scratching my hand, so after practicing one arpegio on 10-12th frets for about one hour, unpleasant scratchy feeling in my hand has become so intense that I decided to return the guitar.
I have never seen such a poor finish before. Although all my previous guitars costed below 200 Euro, none of them had received such a fretboard treatment. And of course I was not expecting it from a guitar more than 2x more expensive.
However, sound and look-wise it is beautiful and now, when I don't have it anymore, I'm thinking that maybe these fretboard trenches are not so bad and one could get rid of the scratchy feeling by more filing of the edges... After all, the look and sound are really nice!

Terrible Hardware
BuzzAlex 19.03.2021
3 months in, and the black chrome is already gone from jack plate, form strap buttons, and pickup covers. Guitar was stored in case all the time, and wiped after every use. Didn't even used a strap on the guitar and you wouldn't be able to tell that the strap buttons used to be black chrome. Thomann said that its normal to have the discoloration..

Decent fot the price
Mike from Greece 19.01.2022
I have it for 2 weeks and i play every day for a couple of hours and i have to say it sounds good not the best but its really god for the its price.

They're 2 negatives tho on the low E on the 10th fret it is buzzing too much and i have to get it fixed ( it came like that ) and the second on is there is a super small chip ( not noticeable by eye, or feel ) on the neck

Overall very happy with it playes great its a fast playing guitar and its very good for the price would recomend for a good budget guitar
