This guitar comes from the prestigious series of Ibanez Sabre ... Its features include a mahogany body and flamed maple top ... Its Prestige Wizard neck flat and comfortable to perfection ... Its rosewood fingerboard fitted with 22 frets, its jumbo frets and Floyd Rose bridge ...

As for the pickups, you are entitled to a humbucker neck pickup IBZ QM1, a micro medium QMS1 IBZ single coil, and finally a humbucker bridge pickup IBZ QM2 ... There is also a 5-way switch and two buttons (volume and tone) ...

On the aesthetic point of view, this guitar is simply beautiful ... Two finishes are available in this model: amber and green transparent ... Personally, this is the transparent green made me melt, and all mechanical golden ...


The handle is really nice, and that is, with its aesthetic, which makes this guitar a marvel ... On the ergonomic point of view, nothing wrong ...

But that does not alter the sound wonderful that we can get the first grip ...


A priori, this guitar is categorized in a style rather rock or metal, largely because of his appearance ... However, there is only one of many early advantages of this instrument is its versatility! Personally, I do blues and metal, and I feel no need to change the guitar to go from one style to another ...

The sound of this guitar is very versatile ... Not that one can obtain a multitude of different sounds (although mics allow much), but the sound fits everything we want to do! Sustain a beautiful big sound metal, and a perfect and precise to attack a beautiful solo blues ... Note also the high quality of its light, which gives a soothing air and agreements ...

Here is the amp that I play (Peavy Ultra Plus, 120-watt lamps, 3-channel ...)


I use this guitar for 4 years now ... And I have never felt any disappointment in what I have done ... I was captivated by this model and I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to invest in a top model ... Unfortunately, this model is difficult to find since it is no longer manufactured ... However, a new edition of it appeared in this year Ibanez (S1670 FM) ...

And finally, a small photo of the beast in action ... : P
