Probs not made in the US with it not being a prestige but who cares. not me! Great guitar for those that like to bend and trem without the faff of a Floyd Rose. 24 jumbo frets and cutaway body allow easy access to high notes. Two Ibanez active pickups contend well with their EMG equivalents. I have invested in and 81 and an 85 but i guess I'm just vein.


Lightweight and thin profile make it extremely playable. high frets are easily reachable. the machineheads are tight and stay in tune despite it not being double locking. It's easy to get a good sound out of this guitar. the neck is however a little wide in my opinion but maybe i just have to get used to this as my old guitar had a very thin neck.


I use a vox vt30. a very versatile modeling amp and this guitar can take advantage of all the sounds. This guitar is a metal machine. i use it mainly for hardcore in my band. it also is great for clean sounds. the active pick ups lower the noise level and provide high output.


Purchased this guitar not long ago. Actually did a part exchange for an old prestige I never played. Even having to pay and extra 50 quid for a lower spec guitar, i wasn't disappointed. Perfect precision and quality of sound. Great value all round. compared it to a Jackson and an ESP LTD for around the same price and the Ibanez one hands down!
