    An interesting new take on guitar synthesizers, although I must say that I do find the visual design of the guitar a little unimaginative.

    This is interesting; I could definitely find use for that.

    Interesting stuff from Ibanez, for little money.

    kewl ...

    A little too much vibration on some strings?, otherwise pretty nice. I've co-opted an epiphone of some kind, I don't remember if it is one I bought for my daughter or one her friend left behind when their band broke up (and they ain't getting back together again).

    I don't think so. As I understand it, Ibanez puts .010-.046 strings on these guitars at the factory, and they have a 25" scale length, which means they'll still have more tension on them than a Gibson-style guitar, which comes with a 24.75" scale.

    But these guitars in the video have all freshly arrived at the store, and a new guitar's strings are always tuned down before transport, so as to relieve the tension on the neck that would arise due to temperature differences. And this then means that the guitars all need to be properly tuned and the strings stretched-in first before they'll hold their pitch.

    ok, that makes perfect sense... I thought I noticed it but I wasn't sure why. I thought maybe it was the design of the 'casing'...but I get it.

    If I had the money, then I could see myself buying one of these. Actually, two, even: one with twin humbuckers and one in a hum/single/single configuration. Not sure on the slanted fret thing, though; I'd probably go for the setup with the regular fret arrangement.

    It would be interesting to see one of these with a vibrato system. I know Strandberg offers headless guitars with a whammy ─ Plini's got (at least) one of those ─ and so does Kiesel, so I'm surprised that Ibanez isn't offering that option.

    The Shadows used these at some point, and the pickups in Brian May's guitar are from a Burns.

    Not exactly cheap stuff, but they do have a very good reputation.
