      Advantages

      Disadvantages

      Good but pigeonholed

      The Ibanez rg370 is one of the lower in the RG series of ibanez guitars, the version lower to this has a fixed bridge and 22 frets.

      ***Features***

      This guitar features a floating tremelo which is basically a whammy bar which cannot only drop the pitch but also raise it giving you the chance to flex those hard rock solos.
      24 frets providing enough of a range for anyone interested in any genre, the standard is 21/22 frets so be thankful you're getting those extra 2 frets! It comes with stock pickups.
      The guitars aesthetics admittedly, are more suited to the more intense genres of music. The point ends of the guitar will scare away any indie players whilst the floating tremelo will befuddle the beatles fans, essentially this is for 21st century hard rock and metal.


      ***Playability and Sound***

      The price for the guitar greatly undermines its playability (it's good for the price). The neck feels fast and doesn't build up gunk over time so there is very little need to go over the guitar to make it play as it once did and above all, the guitar feels comfortable to play.

      Onto the tone; First off it is to be noted that this guitar is basswood, the cheapest option for a guitar but at this price it is to expected. Basswood tends to dent easily and sounds overly bassy for most things but give this guitar some TLC and a new set of pickups and she'll be good to go!

      ***Summary***

      Overall I'd recommend this to a beginner guitarist moving on from their first guitar. It's a good investment and should last until he or she outgrows the guitar and moves onto the next big purchase!
