Popular electric guitar manufacturer Ibanez has announced the new X series electric guitar range featuring three new shapes at this years Musikmesse held in Frankfurt. Halberd, Falchion and Glaive are the new shapes, each in a choice of two colors.
Ibanez guitars are everywhere in today's heavy metal scene; countless players have had them in their hands, played them on stage and written countless songs on them.
However today's music, even looking at heavy metal alone, has been broadened and demands guitars with as much variety as the music itself.
With this in mind, Ibanez has introduced three brand new guitars shapes, developed through day to day communication with artists, which combine originally designed shapes with killer tone and playability.
The Ibanez X-series are designed for players aiming to have guitars on the cutting edge and these three new blades, Halberd, Falchion and Glaive are sure to give just that!
HALBERD's body design is inspired by the flow curves and offers easy access to high frets, a sleek, body-fitting back contour, and great balance, all which lead to excellent playing comfort.
Original CAP active pickups in both neck and bridge positions create massive, full-bodied tone and the headstock design is based on the legendary Ibanez Iceman with an additional cut to sharpen it up.
Among all the X-series models, the HALBERD is suited to a broad range of music due to its appearance and hard-tail bridge/tailpiece and is
Available in two colors "LUNA SHADOW (XH300-LSH)" and "MARS SHADOW (XH300-MSH)", each highlighting the beautiful contrast between the body outline and contour.
'A goal of ergonomic design' would describe the FALCHION the best, recommended for those who seek identity, because this shred machine has a striking and unforgettable look.
However, you will never be able to tell how comfortable it is to play from its extreme appearance, with original Edge III double locking tremolo guarantees tuning stability even under aggressive tremolo use.
The original CAP active pickups are mounted for heavy, yet easy to control, sound, Available in "BLACK FLAT (XF350-BKF)" for the classic metal vibe, and "Red Iron Oxide (XF350-RIX)", where the red burst finish emphasizes the body shape.
Despite its demonic appearance, the GLAIVE will surprise you with its solid form and comfortable ergonomics and it's high-performance playability works perfectly for young guitarists longing for an extreme shaped guitar.
The killer tone, with roaring low end, comes from the CAP active pickups mounted in both neck and bridge positions, along with the string-through-body construction and is available in glossy "DARK NIGHT BLACK (XG300-DNK)" and the pure "SNOW WHITE (XG300-SWW)".Posted on 6 Apr 2011 11:07 to category : Instruments News
