i played one at my local shop and didn't care for it at all. i really wanted to like it with a fixed bridge and reverse headstock but i was personally dissapointed. the neck shape had broad shoulders and felt way too chunky to be comfortable for me and had sharp fret ends down the neck. it was hard to find dead spots in the neck due to the poor tone and output of the pickups.
it is very possible that i played a lemon but i wasn't keen on it at all and again, i really WANTED to like it.
i give Ibanez one thumb up for the effort and style (color and reverse headstock with fixed bridge) and two thumbs down for execution. at $449, i would go the extra dough and get the RGT42fx version. i played one of those and i found the neck shape more comfortable and the stock pups were much better (i would still get a JB/Jazz combo upgrade). you can still find them for $519 new if you look around a bit.
