ICHI10

Internet sensation and renowned Guitarist ichika, gained his global following and reputation through a unique combination of complex techniques and an easily identifiable signature sound. He captivates music fans and musicians alike with his unconventional, experimental style and a wholly original musical approach, through which he has become a favorite player and a major influence to players around the world.

Of all the options available to him, ichika chose the headless Q (Quest) series from Ibanez on which to base his new signature model. This guitar largely holds to the specifications and design of the Q54, with a few notable changes. ichika’s guitar features three Ibanez proprietary R1 single coil pickups rather than the standard HSS configuration. This setup helps accentuate ichika’s emphasis on tonal clarity as well as bright, glassy sounds to help balance the highly rhythmic and percussive elements to his playing. ichika’s exciting and original signature design, capitalizes on original hardware and pickup designs from Ibanez and will serve as an indispensable asset in expressing his ever-evolving musical style.

Features Wizard C 3pc Roasted Maple/Bubinga neck

To meet the demand of various playing styles, this Wizard C neck has a very neutral shape – it’s not too thick, too thin, or too flat. The 3pc Roasted Maple/Bubinga construction also offers great stability and long-term durability.

Roasted Birdseye Maple fretboard

The beautiful Birdseye Maple fretboard imbues this bass with an exotic appearance . The fretboard is heat-treated for a balanced attack and rich sustain.

Nyatoh body

Nyatoh used as the body wood provides a rich mid-low end.

R1 S-S-S pickups

Our new R1 pickups are designed specifically for use in headless guitars. They provide a clearly defined sound, facilitating excellent tonal balance through all frequencies. The lows are powerful without being muddy, and the highs are bright and clear, but never harsh. As a result, every single note within the chord structure is well defined, and clearly audible. The R1 design, with its tonal balance, and extremely low noise performance, works extremely well with both digital and analog effects.

Custom string lock

This custom string lock is one-piece unit that features very simple construction. This means the hardware requires less maintenance, is highly durable, and allows for very easy string changes. Additionally, no proprietary string is required, so you can continue to use your favorite gauge and brand.

Mono tune bridges

The Mono tune bridges offer a wide intonation range so that you can easily set the instrument up for tuning down a whole step or even further. The string height is also easily adjustable, and each saddle generally has less material, which leads to more natural and organic tone.

dyna-MIX8 switching system with Alter Switch

The dyna-MIX 8 offers eight sound variations and can switch between humbucker and single coil modes with just a flick of the mini switch. It even simulates a humbucking sound from the combination of two single coil pickups.

Gig bag included

Ibanez Gig bags are made out of durable materials.

Ergonomic body design (Q)

The body features a number of strategically placed curves on both the top and back of the instrument. This complex, yet sophisticated design provides maximum playing comfort.

Compact and light-weight, yet resonant body

While it is really compact and light-weight, its non-chambered, solid body provides great sound with rich woody tones.
