"Go Ibanez, Go Happy"
This reviewer purchased this item from Same Day Music.
I bought this guitar in June of 2004, and it still is like new (Feb of 08)....The guitar does not pronounce lows as much as it does highs. When strumming chords, however, this guitar shines, as they come off bright and clear. It is also loud, which makes it nice for playing live or in a group unplugged.
Although it is sometimes underrated, the adjustable truss rod is a nice plus, so you can adjust the action the way you like. The electronics are simple, yet effective.
Ease of Use:
This product is very user-friendly. It is easy to get a great sound, and it stays in tune very well. I have played several live shows with it, without having to tune up at all. Out of the box, playability was excellent, although the neck is thinner than some players might like.
Very solid. The finish is spotless, and the guitar has held up over time. I have become a solid endorser of Ibanez acoustic guitars.
When I bought my first one, a screw on the tuners was stripped out. A simple call to Samedaymusic, and I had a new guitar in my hands in 2 days.
The Wow Factor:
Great guitar for beginners and seasoned players alike. Sometimes I prefer this to my Martin.
