Ibanez is very excited to announce the addition of another great artist to its roster and introduce his signature guitar: Ibanez FLATV1. Josh Smith is a blues rock virtuoso, singer-songwriter,and producer. With his technical ability he has become one of the best blues guitarists today.

FLATV S-Tech roasted maple neck
The FLATV neck features a 'Soft V' neck grip shape that blends the charm of a classic neck shape with a modern feel that is both substantial and comfortable to the player. The S-Tech roasted maple neck is constructed with one piece and is the perfect combination of form and function.

S-Tech roasted maple fretboard
Ibanez's S-Tech special roasted treatment provides a superior attack, a well-balanced tone and a rich sustain. In order to achieve supreme neck grip comfort, the fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve.

Seymour Duncan FLATV1 custom pickups
Josh's signature pickup set from Seymour Duncan features a vintage-style neck pickup with slightly increased output to adhere to Josh's exacting tonal specifications. The bridge pickup is constructed with a mix of different types of alnico magnets to best match the tone that Josh has relied on for years and is able to capture guitar sounds that are both bright and fat.

Gotoh machine heads
Gotoh machine heads provide super precision, smooth feel and minimal back lush.

Gotoh F1803 bridge with Gotoh/Ibanez co-designed 'in-tune' saddles
The Gotoh F1803 bridge improves sustain and tuning stability. Made of titanium for maximum clarity, the saddles are equipped with grooves that actively prevent each string from slipping to the side. The saddles also feature rounded edges and deeper grooves on the first and sixth strings, which means much less saddle tilting is required to adjust the string height and equal string spacing is more easily achieved. Additionally, the saddles are designed with pre-calculated 'intonation points' where the string touches the saddle, allowing each string to maintain precise intonation. The 10.5mm string spacing allows for easy picking across strings.

Specially-designed control plate and knobs
This control plate is curved for easier access to all the knobs and switches without sacrificing its traditional appearance. Specially-designed control knobs allow that extra knurl for more responsive control.

Slab body
A non-contoured 'slab' style AZS body allows for a classic look and feel.

FLATV joint heel
This neck joint and heel offer a feel that is reminiscent of the golden era of guitar design, while the four-bolt metal neck plate adds extra strength and stability.

Luminlay side dot inlays
Ibanez Luminlay side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
