RG350EX

Woods

The body is in Basswood while the neck, in 3 pieces, is in Maple. But we will speak about the valid neck later. The fingerboard, that provides 24 Jumbo frets, is in Rosewood with sharktooth inlay.

Neck

The excellent neck, like i said in Maple, is of the Wizard II type, in 3 pieces. If you play an Ibanez you will understand why it is so famous. It is thin, fast and very, very comfortable. The scale length is 648mm (25.5"). The width at Nut is 43mm. The width in the last fret is 56mm. The thickness in the 1st fret is 19mm, in the 12th fret is 21mm. The radius is 400mm.

Edge III Tremolo

The main characteristic is the low profile, much similar to a professional Ibanez bridge: the Lo-PRO Edge. The result is a better palm comfort and a great tuning stability.

Pickups

Bridge

Infinity 4 with Alnico magnet. This humbucker creates a brilliant tone, warm and rich in harmonics. A sound suitable to lead, perhaps too much bright. But it depends on your taste. Personally, i prefer more low end.

Middle

Infinity Single3, a single-coil with Alnico magnet. This single-coil creates a versatile sound that can be used in many different contexts. Rather traditional and with an high output, but slightly noisy.

Neck

Infinity 3. This humbucker features a ceramic magnet and it is suitable to rhythm and chording.

General opinion

If we consider the low price, approximately 330 Euros, excellent. It looks very nice, the neck is perfect and the Basswood body creates a quality tone. It is for Metal, in my opinion, but rather flexible and with good clean sounds. Perhaps, i would substitute the bridge pickup. But it's my opinion.
