Love it. The EMG Select pick up's give it an almost natural type of overdrive. Tone is Amazing. Only thing I would change is I would like the 24 fretted neck instead of the 22. Looks great plays great.

Ibanez EXB445 production dates

Sorry, you're incorrect about the dates. The EXB445 was listed in the 1991 Ibanez catalog and I have one of these models. The serial number for mine starts in '91xxxxx', confirming it was made in 1991.

Thanks for noticing the mistake - I've corrected the page (it was discontinued in 1996).
