I am not to sure if I would trust anybody's opinion about tone coming out from a brand of guitar...
There are many factors that go into tone itself and the guitar and pickups are just 2 small parts of a bigger picture.
You could take a an Ibanez RG550 and plug it into a 10 watt amp with a torn speaker and it would sound like crap. You could also plug in a Fender Stat and plug it into the same amp and it too would sound like total crap. See what I am trying to say here?
The biggest thing about buying any guitar - not just Ibanez - is the fact that you are happy with it and not worry about what anybody else says about it.
