Can NOT go wrong with this

By: on 9 September 2021
I recently received my AG45 and she's a beauty!! Beautifully set up out of the box, minor intonation adjustment required but great neck and the action was to my liking which is a plus. 30 second tune up and before I knew it I had Metallica covers blasting from my amp! The tone/volume knobs have the perfect amount of resistance so you get a good feel for rolling off volume and the PUP Selector switch is really solid. The tone in the bridge is epic, runs hot. Haven't tested the middle and neck pickups too much but sounded fine to me in my quick test. Good weight, not too heavy and not too light. The neck though is what wins this for me. It's really slick, and perfect thickness for my preferences. Out of the guitars I've had in the past including Squier Strats, Gretsch Jet, Fender Mustang and Jazzmaster this has the most playable neck of the lot. Really happy with this. Great service and shipping too - even with the Pandemic delays it was here in 4 days. You beaut!

Amazing 24 fret guitar for the price

By: on 12 February 2021
I've given this five stars because it is listed and priced as a beginner guitar. The quality and value for only $200 is just outstanding and any beginner would do very well to learn on this instrument. I'm not a beginner but I bought this as I wanted a 24 fret guitar without spending too much. I'm a fan of Ibanez and that obviously appears to be the inspiration of this guitar. My best guitar had a RRP of around $1600 but I can tell you it's not a whole lot better than the AG45. The neck shape and feel of the AG45 is great. The fretboard itself is perhaps a tiny bit (like 1-2mm) too thin for me as both E string occaisionally slip off the edge but I blame my technique for that as much as anything. The neck join to the body is a great tapered shape allowing easy access to the high frets. The tuners and nut are just basic but hold tune very well even when there's a lot of string bending. The body itself feels very light - not too light, but nice and light. The pickups sounded pretty good really, difficult to quantify but maybe 75-80% as nice to listen to as the pickups on my expensive guitars. Here's what I didn't like so much: 1) The middle pickup is too high and either the routing of the hole or maybe just a problem with the adjustment screws aren't allowing me to lower it enough, so I keep banging into it with the pick. 2) I wish the frames around the humbuckers were not there so I could lower them deep in the body too. 3) The paint finish was great except for one small blemish which is unfortunately right in your face when you use the instrument. Overall amazing beginner guitar and really an excellent instrument all round.
