Is it the weight? Is it the pickup configuration? Is it the fact that it's an Ibanez? Perhaps all of those combined. Sadly it comes at a price and the price alone is enough to get a Premium model or even an Iron Label. Hence why I didn't give it a 5. Personally, I like to play all kinds of genres, my favourite being metal. It can easily cover everything I need. The wood combination makes the vibrations flow and the thin neck makes playability easy. Something to consider with a larger neck (8 string) and 27" scale length. Whether you djent, you rock, or even jazz, if you see the prestige in owning this guitar, it is 100% worth it!
