The Ibanez FR range, like with many Ibanez models, is designed to appeal to metalheads everywhere. The FRIX6FDQM is a superb looking guitar crafted with tonewoods and top quality hardware to provide a superb playing feel and an energetic sound output.
Sleek FR Body
The FRIX6FDQM has more of a retro look about it, with a single cutaway body with beautiful contours providing great higher fret access. The body has a nyatoh construction which is topped with quilted maple. These tonewoods partner each other really well, contributing to a well-balanced and responsive sound. The Black Mirage Gradation finish of the guitar allows the ash body top to shine through and show off its natural grains, resulting in a stunning looking guitar.
Nitro Wizard Neck
A 3-piece Maple / Purpleheart neck is fitted firmly to the FRIX6FDQM, offering complete stability as you play. The neck is shaped to the comfortable Nitro Wizard profile which is really thin and as is typical of Ibanez guitars, this enhances your ability to perform solos and fast riffs. Despite its slim profile, the neck feels sturdy and reliable.
Topping the neck is a bound ebony fingerboard. Ebony is a fairly dense tonewood, working with the 3-piece neck and body tonewoods to produce a great variety of tones and comfortable feel. With easy access to upper frets, you'll find scale runs and sweeps trouble-free on the Nitro Wizard neck.
DiMarzio Fusion Edge Pickups
The FRIX6FDQM is equipped with a pair of DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups, the end result of a collaboration between DiMarzio and Ibanez. These pickups provide slick response and crystalline tone to satisfy the demands of modern players.
The FRIX6FDQM features a Master Volume control which is also joined by a Killswitch, so you can manually emit a strobe effect. A 3-way pickup switch allows you to choose your pickup configuration to suit your playing needs.
A coil-tap switch is also included on this model, which allows you to experiment further to pull even more tonal options from the pickups. Though the Iron Label series is geared towards rockers and metallers, this setup is delightfully versatile and offers far more than just cranking up the volume and playing loud.
The headstock is fitted with reliable Gotoh MG-T locking tuning machines which give you ultimate tuning stability as well as increasing the speed of string changes. The lower bout of the body is kitted out with a Gibraltar Standard II fixed bridge. This bridge maintains a strong connection between the body and each of the strings for an even clearer voice. The guitar features neat black hardware to finish off its exceptional appearance.
