the AX120 - was it MEANT to be a cheap guitar?
I was in a local shop a couple days ago, and this funny lookin Schecter scorpion looking thing caught my eye. turns out to be the ibanez ax120. so i pick it up and start strummin it. feels OK, plays GOOD (not orgasmic but good). then of course the salesman comes over to me n throws me the old 1 2 sales pitch. i bout soiled my pants when he says its a set maple neck and a solid mohogany body, and less than 300 us bucks. I always assumed that it was sort of like the Epiphone SGs. great guitars with huge cutbacks (usually in electronics) to make it dirt cheap. Is this the case here or was it MEANT to be a runt low end beginners guitar?
IMHO (granted i never heard it plugged in) but a nice set of 10 ga blue steels and a few nice humbuckers that guitar should be smoking!!! unless of course it sounds like crap. someone fill me in here!
