Oh, I forgot to mention!

This review actually wasnt written by me, my friend just bought this and i suggested he write a review for the guys and gals at GMC, Sorry about that!

The only part i wrote was the:
"Now, i LOVE LOVE LOVE My Washburn V, but this guitar just feels excellent, sounds excellent, and surpasses most instruments in any price range!"

Hes my bandmate, he doesnt have an account at GMC, so i logged on at his house, and let him write it up, i just got home now, so sorry i couldnt clear things up!

By the way, the review is 100% true, its a superb weapon by any means, ive played it for a few hours today already and its great!

*EDIT*
Fixed the review so its more clear smile.gif

Well to be honest, his mom (who controls all the money) doesnt buy anything online, she hates paypal or anything like it, just doesnt trust it, Plus, he gets lessons from his dad for free, and he is one sick ass guitar player, Between him and his dad actually, they have like 8 Ibanez's biggrin.gif

Maybe i could convince him, i know he watches all the videos on here all the time, and actually figured a few out by ear.

Actually, i should get his dad to join, and get him to recview all there Ibanez's smile.gif hell, he should be doing lessons on GMC.

*EDIT* - Can andrew or someone add VBT700 To the topic title, i forgot it smile.gif

NOTE: This review is not written by me (The Uncreator), it is written by Andre Williams, a friend of mine, this is his take on this guitar, which i actually quite agree with smile.gif, seeing as alot of people are looking at Ibanez's for new guitars, i thought he should review this for GMC!! Hope you enjoy smile.gif

Brand: Ibanez
Weapon: VBT700 V Blade
Price: $599
Specs:

--V shaped mahogany body
--Thru-body 5-piece Wizard II neck
--Bound rosewood fingerboard
--24 jumbo frets
--2 DiMarzio D Activator pickups
--Custom Gibraltar bridge
--String-thru body
--Sharktooth inlays

Sound: 8 Wow! another fine Ibanez product we have here! a pure powerhouse for any metalhead, its Dimarzio pickups give a great metal sound, excellent for anything from Blind Guardian, Angra, Joe Satriani, to Nile, Arch Enemy and Opeth, its a monsterous tone in a beautiful package. Playing through a Crate GT Series Soild State Amps, the sound this thing produced was superb. It lacked somewhat on getting a classic rock or bluesy sound, but it can still be done.

Feel: 10 The most comfortable guitars for me to play are Flying V's, lightweight and they sit beautifully across my left leg. (Similar to how Pavel plays his JEM In his videos). And the 5 Piece Wizard II neck its very smooth and provides access to all 24 Jumbo Frets nicely, i felt no restriction playing this beast for the first time, and i still don't smile.gif The bridge is excellent as well, my palm rests well on it, so i can switch from super fast palm muting riffage to slower melodies without really having to adjust my pciking hand at all. Its also makes me feel that i have twice the endurance!

Cons:
--Lacks somewhat on getting Bluesy and Classic Rock Rones. Definetly a Metalheads Weapon.

Overall: 9.5 Excellent Weapon! Ibanez's new Flying V Just sets new standards in affordable guitars, as they always do! Its an affordable weapon aimed the Metalhead in mind, so if you want a great guitar for some serious riffage, this is your weapon right here!*Now, i LOVE LOVE LOVE My Washburn V, but this guitar just feels excellent, sounds excellent, and surpasses most instruments in any price range!

*My, (The Uncreator's) Personal Oppinion

I couldnt get any of my pictures to work for some reason, it says invalid link or something, anyway, here is a link to a picture of it, The White looks Beautiful!

YEAH

VBT For the win, nice to see someone review something i have, and you couldn't have said it better, i've got the black one..... look!
