The spruce top yields crisp articulation and delivers a broad dynamic range, offering a versatile sound for players of any style. Its clear and loud characteristics can handle everything from light fingerpicking to more aggressive strumming patterns with ease. The sapele back and sides offer a consistently well-balanced sound, with a beautifully bright quality and a stunning top-end shimmer. Together, the mixture of timbers offers a versatile sound to accommodate a diverse range of playing styles, providing players with a great all-purpose electro acoustic guitar.
Constructed from mahogany, the neck delivers a fat, warm sound with plenty of resonance. Due to the density of mahogany, it is less susceptible to warping, offering stability and durability. The neck is topped with a rosewood fingerboard, producing warmth and a bright sizzling-sparkle that really shines through when using fingerpicking techniques. The rosewood fingerboard also offers a smooth and energetic playing experience, ensure players receive the perfect level of comfort.

Over the past 30 years, Ibanez Guitars have always been at the forefront of developing the right tools for electric guitar players pushing the boundaries of music. For decades, Ibanez designers and luthiers have been the embodiment of this ideology, pushing their skills to the edge of imagination, consistently creating some of the most versatile and unique instruments ever. Although Ibanez guitars have been made since 1908, it wasn't until the late 1980s that they began to form an identity for themselves when artists such as Steve Vai and Frank Zappa began using their instruments. Now with a huge artist clientele across the globe, Ibanez are a leading manufacturer of electric guitars and basses and a first choice for many dedicated musicians.
