My brother's first guitar was this. So it was always around. At first, I hated it. I couldn't stand the neck profile, neck heel, and bridge. All things Ibanez purposefully put on the guitar. Now, I can play it and not just feel uncomfortable. I like the look and the arch-top. He put it in drop B and it fared well. I'm not an Ibanez guy, but It's a decent guitar.
