Re: Ibanez Roadcore (MIJ) Test and review
Well, time to write my review of the MIJ Roadcore:
The neck feels like a baseball bat like a Fujigen Strat. However, the 16 inch radius makes it feel like a thick ibanez neck. It wasn't hard to play at all and I didn't feel weird playing such a thick neck.
If you watched the video, the sustain on it was INSANE. Notes that last forever.
It was comfortable and nothing that felt weird at all. Perfect shape.
The P-rails version, RC2720 iirc, sounds great but I thought all the extras on it were meh. Gotoh Magnum lock tuners and some extra knob to turn on the blade magnet side of the pup are unnecessary imo. Nice little extras but not needed.
The RG1720 (Super 58/Core tone) was the one I used in the video. The tone was amazing in high gain settings and also clean. I was pleasantly surprised by the Ibanez made pups in this case.
IMO, Ibanez hit a homerun with the Prestige Roadcores. These are affordable MIJ gutiars that are great for the non shredder. These axes should sell extremely well for being so "normal." I'm gassing for one hard right now lol
