    Looks like a nice guitar but likely too aggressive sounding for me. A happier color and lighter sounding pickups, and I would think about it.

    Like the grain-visible wood and 3-piece neck, but no fret markers is a deal-breaker for me.

    Looks like very poor QC to me, not only can they not get the string ferrules in a straight line, the bolts holding the neck to the body are all over the place.

    Er, no - it's nothing like a tele. Why would you ask ?
    If you are wondering whether posting it on a telecaster forum was a good idea, well folks on here love all kinds of guitars and will be happy to give you their opinions
    Nice guitar though. I'm an ex Ibanez owner myself, so I know the quality will be there. After that it's all all subjective.
    I presume there is a 7 string version?

    Final Verdict:

    Ibanez succeeded where others could not. Make a truly badass modern Tele, and then put it into mass production.

    Killer metal tones, superbly brutal visual appointments, and a super fast neck.This guitar screams metal.

    It is definitely not your father’s Tele.

    Ibanez is one of the few guitar manufacturers coming up with original ideas anymore.

    It's a tele flavored Ibanez. Ibanez makes good guitars. I would switch the 81 and 85 for the 57/64 in brushed nickel, I have this in a hagstrom and they rip in a very sweet way.

    If there's a super strat, then that's a super tele!

    That ain't nobody's tele. And I'm relatively lax on the subject--that Talman is miles closer.
