This isn't your every day Ibanez RG3EXFM1... Bought it new, brought it home, plugged in and started to play it. It was just ok out of the box but needed a fair amount of work to get it right. The IBZ V7 (Vintage 7) neck pickup and IBZ V8 (Vintage 8) bridge pickup sounded really good when played clean, but add distortion, overdrive and a pedal or 2 and you cant even make out the notes being played (must be the enhanced overtones they mention in the ad). I think the factory forgot to finish up the fret work on the neck because they stuck out on top and bottom and snagged my had when playing. Although the intonation was spot on, the action was way off. So the pickup were replaced with Duncan Super Distortion (neck and bridge), took the strings off and field the frets top an bottom for a smooth, unrestrictive feel. Next was a set of DR 9s then adjusted the neck relief and let it settle in over night. Action and intonation setup was next and now I have the guitar they advertised in the MF ad I read before I bought this thing. Plays awesome, sounds way better now (clean and distorted) and looks killer.
