“ Brand: Ibanez / Guitar Type: Electric Guitar „
I picked up a classical guitar from my friend, and after playing it over the summer, decided that with the money I got for my birthday I would buy an electric guitar.
I chose the Ibanez brand because they are slightly different from the mainstream, I didn't want a Fender Squire. I bought this guitar for about £150 from gear4music.
I have not once been dissapointed. You can have the guitar witheither silver or black (I chose silver) finish, and it looks great. It is well built, solid, but not too heavy, and, it does not scratch, the finish and colour (maybe it is different on the black model), means that I cannot see one mark on it.
As for the sound of it. It has 2 humbuckers, and a three way selector switch. It has 2 knobs for volume of either pickup, and another for tone. The only down side is that there aren't any numbers on them, so it a bit of a guess as to how far round you are, but I think that would spoil the look if they were included.
There are a multitude of sounds you can get out of this guitar. I have medium gage (10) roto sound strings on it, the front humbucker selected and have it as a jazzy, bluesy set up with my amp. However, add some distortion and change the selector switch to the rear (back) pickup, and you can play some metal riffs with ease.
The neck on this guitar is easy to play, I haven't experienced any fret buzzing, and it is really easy to move up and down it.
This is a great beginners guitar, if you have a tiny bit extra money, and want a great sounding, different guitar, I haven't seen anyone else with this guitar apart from myself. I would recomend buying a good amp to go with this (laney?) And if you have even more money to spare, an effects pedal.
