Ibanez SAS36FM
See the description of all the technical details.


Very pleasant guitar neck level, the finest you can find! Also very stylish with pearl dots and the exposed wood on mine.
Guitar very pleasant as a whole.


Microphones some lgers for a game pro but in the range of prices very good, the pickup is splitable which can be useful! Good power for the humbucker neck pickup is very round, it is also possible to get his jazz / folk by mixing middle pickup and neck pickup! Good overall


I do not use it for a long time, I would go on the range above but the price-quality ratio is very good! Good guitar amateurs and Confirms. His greatest asset is her beauty finishes are perfect, which does not happen often in this price range! Guitar very "class"

Ibanez SAS36FM
Made in Korea
22 frets
True Duo Bucker humbucker 1 splitable (bridge)
2 single coil pickups AHS1 Ibanez (neck) and AHS2 (middle)
SAT Pro bridge
5 microphones positions + 1 (split)
Channel 3 pices SAS set-in neck
Mahogany body
Table in Saddle flambbr /> medium Frets
1 volume knob (which splits the humbucker by pulling)
1 knob of Tone


The handle is enjoyable when trs rgl which is not the case at home!
Access in acute natural enough.
The guitar is trslgre, so much so that some gns by such maneuverability.
The form is fairly standard but trs well with a nice finish.
For cons, I spent hours and hours SETTING THE vibrato, chord height, tension, neck, etc. before getting her a drink.
A nightmare.
The factory rglages taient abominable (strings that border, etc.). And I deprecated this guitar beginners all,) not less than the take to be a luthier Ches RULES.
The vibrato is also trs poor quality, less down the bridge to fully use it only to lower the note.


So this guitar is more oriented pop-rock, alternative rock, even mtal (but opt ​​for the SAS 32 FM with 2 humbuckers).
Sr what is it that the original pickups are almost dtestables, both at the neck humbucker (my Yamaha EG 112 150 has a better handle her!).
Only the micro middle might be kept ...
I mainly play with a Rat 2, a Fuzz Factory, a Phase 90, an Echo Park, a Cry Baby and a Whammy.
My amp is a H & K edition Blue 60.
I get beautiful clean tones with the micro environment, close to a folk guitar even!
But let the other microphones in DSIR clean, even the neck pickup, gnralement most slamming on guitar like this, which is soft desire ...
With the Rat, the sounds are quite aggressive on the humbucker, but they quickly reach their limits.
But I really like the grain that gives the simple micro environment, once again, even in saturated mode, a usable overdrive trs.
With the Fuzz, no need to dwell, it's awful, is drooling everywhere, regardless of the microphone.
I will hasten to acqurir a Seymour Duncan SH-5, I Espree, remdier this.


I use it for 2 months, at least 1 hour a day.
I prfre from the SAS 32 FM silent because it red ... lol
But I really do not regret that choice because of its range obtained thanks to microphones in the middle is apprciable.
I dtest the bridge that the strings dsacorde trs quickly if surlev.
I also possde a Fender Deluxe 72 Reissue that has nothing to do but who ultimately has much more characters.
At this price and given the ordinary matrial (wooden bridge) and rglage dgueulasse factory, they could have put Duncan pickups of origin, as they do with Schecter for MODELS the same price!
I prfr a Schecter, but it's a mess to get these guitars because there are few retailers ...

Ibanez SAS36FM
Manufacturing core actually ...
everything is going good Describes previous ones in the notices.


So yes, I feel my Premire Has excellent, it's a real pleasure to play in this round: one would walk littralement.
Access in acute, as on most ibanez is very easy.
Trs grip gnrale, more the guitar is really lgre, while it has good sound quality indniablement.
Only concern the lowest signal: means a bit of percussion mdiator on the rope ... was it just sucks ... do with a luthier?


It must be so my type. I trs indie, mtal ... is nickel.
On Repeat 'is the marshall lamps. Home an ibanez all rotten to the amps. But a ringing in both cases ^ ^
I play with a Hyper Lead Zoom in distortion. With mdiums plutt boosts the sound is warm and punchy trs, slightly crystalline. Clearly, and especially with the double micro Splitt singles sound plutt stratode.
Great range of sounds in all cases. This guitar is versatile trs.
And if there's one thing I dtest is the sound of mdiator which means too much. Apart a. ..


I use it for six months.
She looks great, is lgre and comfortable.
I tried a lot of MODELS, but it is the first in this price range that has dmarqu me (my ears are going to say).
The report qualitprix is ​​excellent.
With exprience ... I would have waited another month to offer me further over CATEGORY: D
But in this price range is a good choice trs. Trs guitar endearing!

fredian's review (This content has been automatically translated from French)

Ibanez SAS36FM
Made in korea
Mahogany body, maple neck 22 frets glued (it really makes one with the guitar, you can not see the junction with the body!)
A splittable humbucker in single Ibanez SAT Pro bridge
2 single coil pickups AHS1 Ibanez (neck) and AHS2 (middle)
Ibanez bridge
1 volume (to double the microphone splitter and the intermediate position micro middle / bridge singles), 1 tone, 1 pickup selector
on the look and finish is more than decent for the price, the table is surrounded by a drizzle of the most beautiful effect abalone (benchmarks of the handle are also abalone, which immediately evokes the PRS EC-standard). That said, one negative, the son of contact microphones and welds are visible and central sleeve (no pickguard and contours for microphones), which on the one hand, makes it rather ugly, and secondly, affects the sound, but I will.


For me, the model I had in my hands had no problem setting, those having been made by the store where it was purchased.

From the first grip, the handle reminds me of something ... I am, it is the same thickness as that of a Gibson SG (as well as having the same red and white border). So those who know understand that this handle is very comfortable. on the other hand, it is quite large, almost as a classical guitar neck, a feature that is not displease me. on the other hand, I do not know what kind of wood is the key, but this one does not necessarily play super smooth at first, the wood being very dry, almost rough ...

On access to acute, no problem (it is a ibanez, let us not forget).

Another good surprise, the body of the guitar is super thin (another similarity to the SG), and although the body is mahogany, the guitar is super light while maintaining excellent sustain.

Finally, the bridge and vibrato are excellent, giving the impression of both flexibility (vibrato very sensitive and pleasant to use, very flexible, it responds to the slightest tension) and strength, and other common with the PRS, the stem is introduced directly into the receptacle without thread. practice! The lifts are very little agreement and react to the action of vibrato. So good stuff.
As for the sound, very easy to find despite the presence of a single knob tone (a feature I do not like in general as too imprecise for my taste, I prefer when he has 2 tone knobs), but I 'There have

a negative point frankly all the same, the mechanics of shit that do not agree, this is even more obvious when a change set of strings, because you will somehow retune your scraper every 15 second, ditto if you're hard on the vibrato. downright rude to use ...


First of all, this guitar is a gem in terms of versatility, largely due to the exceptional sound palette that allow different combinations of microphones. the sound is rich, well balanced in all keys, the humbucker is a killer, both in distortion (of a sound fat enough, it evokes a microphone SG) in the clear; microphones simple, clear as saturated in the sound more reminiscent Start, although, of course, they are less typical and more are fishing in its saturated. Any combination of microphones have their interest, and, hence, the scratch will find versatile certainly their account, this skyscraper is to his advantage in many styles (rock, pop, hard or metal, and, for spent over 2 hours to imroviser, blues !..). On a more neutral than Gibson or Fender, but in a good way, it will really show all the nuances of your playing and tint according to your expression ..

Only defect, when attacking or playing solos note for note on a string, bad breath (microphone), the result of friction of the plectrum on the strings, can be heard (similar to wind in a microphone outdoors ), due, in my opinion, to poor insulation and solder contact microphones, which, I repeat, are apparent. So, the pick attacks are amplified, which is still unpleasant to use ... shame because the microphones are also quality quite good, ibanez would still have been tweaking this aspect!


Note that I do not have this skyscraper is one of my cousin that I had the opportunity to try a whole afternoon. In any case, the quality / price of this guitar is very interesting, as its characteristics and range of sounds are rich (some company whose name ComenC us by G. .... would do well to emulate this model on finishing his studio LP, roughly finished and varnished, while the contours ibanez with abalone is beautiful), allowing access to a wide range of music. This is the first Ibanez I have ever try, and, skeptical about this brand (I had carved the image of guitars for metal) I confess to having been convinced by this model (I said I own a Start and a LP standard us, so I am rather demanding with respect to the sound and qualities of a guitar) that is almost the comparison with known models, such as Start and SG . In any case, for the price, if you hesitate between a Mexican Start, an Epiphone and the shovel, go ahead, the ibanez largment arrives in mind and in every respect! In conclusion, I would say that it combines the look and the ingenuity of the PRS in terms of use, and its sonic palette allows a combination that seemed to me unrealistic and unlikely so far, namely that of an SG and a strat. For the undecided between these two models, Ibanez makes a great alternative is the only major flaws, as I recall, this unpleasant breath amplifying the attack of the pick when playing solo and poor mechanical properties. Obviously, this notice applies to the scratch set correctly, which was clearly not the case on the model of the previous opinion.
