UTILIZATION

This is basically Ibanez's 1980s entry into making a Strat-style guitar with (then) modern styling. It is configured like a Strat, plays like a Strat, feels like a Strat, and sounds like a Strat. The bridge system vibrato works like a Strat. For all intents and purposes, this is basically a Stratocaster. The think is, the headstock and body shape are different enough to make the guitar a distinctive entry into the electric instrument world.

I made the dreadful mistake of selling mine a few years ago. I loved this guitar, and I actually liked this guitar better than many Fender American Strat guitars I've played. The worksmanship on the axe is excellent, and it plays very well.

SOUNDS

This guitar nails any Strat-type tone imaginable: Hendrix, SRV, Clapton, John Mayer, Robert Cray, Buddy Guy, Eric Johnson...the list could go on for days. But, being as how this is virtually the same guitar as a good Strat, those same capabilities apply. The versatility is such that it can handle blues, classic rock, jazz, country, metal, reggae, and anything in between. The pickups are especially good - I'd honestly swap a set of these pickups out on my current Fender Strat if I had them.

OVERALL OPINION

For the price, this guitar is unstoppable. I've seen them going for as little as $200, up to around $500 on the used market. Even at $500, this guitar is a fantastic instrument, and I'd recommend to any Strat lover to check it out if they can find it.

Ibanez Blazer 21
Ibanez Blazer repeat of the 80s (which I also own).
Strat type guitar, equipped with HSS.
5 position selector.
Lutherie impeccable as often in Ibanez guitars.

UTILIZATION

Handle very pleasant for me.
Easy access to acute.

SOUNDS

Sounds very punchy, especially when using the humbucker in the bridge position.
Used directly in console connected via a pedal effect.

OVERALL OPINION

Used for 5 years in addition to a Strat, a Les Paul and Ibanez Custom Made, for his sound more rock and punchy.
Very good price / quality ratio.
