The best Ibanez hollow body I’ve owned. It’s so much better than the lower-priced Ibanez archtops and so much cheaper than any boutique instrument. I had the frets dressed to correct any dead spots that came with the guitar and it includes all the original Ibanez items shown in the case. I also upgraded the tuner buttons with ebony buttons. To my ears, it has the sound and feel of a comfy Johnny Smith/L5 but at a fraction of the price. Spruce top and ebony fingerboard make all the difference in these higher-end Ibanez models IMO.
