Ibanez is known for their very inexpensive guitars as well as they're highly used overdrive pedal such as the tube screamer pedal which is probably the most famous overdrive distortion pedal in existence. These guitars I believe came out in the late 70s early 80s and had a unique body style but really a huge influence from the Gibson style of guitars. These guitars happily have an interesting look and an interesting body shape but the overall feel is a very Gibson type feel. If you have ever play to Gibson Les Paul or a Gibson explorer then you'll notice the balance weight and feel of thebody can be very similar to his guitar.


This guitar features a three-way selector in between the two humbucker pick ups as well as well as a pick up selector. You have two volume control knobs and two tone control knobs, which is very much like to Gibson guitar. You have 22 frets along the fretboard that is a rosewood fretboard with its block inlays. It features a bolt on neck and has a nice overall black paint job.


This guitar sounds pretty good in a rock setting because of the thick double humbucker pickups. It can have a warm sound that is going to be comparable to a Gibson sounding guitar. These guitars primarily used mahogany wood and a mahogany neck wood. So you'll then have a very thick and warm tone. If you see Paul Gilbert then you can see a similar body shape to this guitar only his guitars feature single coil pickups rather than humbucker pickups.


These guitars of been discontinued for a while now but you can find them in the used section and in the classifieds very easily for right around 500 or $600. That's a pretty good price for good quality guitar mating Korea. They are fun guitars and definitely have a unique look to them.
