5PC JATOBA/WALNUT NECK
Coupling Jtoba with Walnut yields a neck that is string and stable despite its thinness.
Jatoba has a reddish brown color which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.
EXTENDED NECK JOINT
The neck tongue not only creates a unique look, it also makes utilizing the higher frets easier.
CUSTOM ELECTRONICS 3-BAND EQ
The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ w/3-way mid-frequency switch offers tonal variations that enhance simple chord work as well as complex soloing.

The Bartolini® BH2 pickups provide a tight bottom-end, punchy mid-range, and smooth response. The dual-coil style configuration maximizes articulation and a long blade pole piece widens the magnetic field, providing balanced string-to-string pickup response.
