Ibanez have introduced a new edition from their high quality S Series of electric guitars, the SIX7FDFM. It keeps the traditional S body shape and style for a pleasing sound and feel. By adding another string your sound becomes multi-dimensional, perfect for metallers! The SIX7FDFM guitar has a cutting-edge sound and an innovative design which will please Ibanez fans all over.
The SIX7FDFM S Series model features the typical Ibanez deep double cutaway body, providing you with complete access to the neck. This allows you to reach the higher fret registers and really take advantage of the 7th string. The body is constructed from mahogany known for its warm, rich sound and ability to respond to many playing styles. A flamed maple top joins the body and looks just wonderful. Maple and mahogany partner one another beautifully to produce outstanding sonic properties.
A 3-piece maple / bubinga neck is joined to the body and shaped to the Ibanez Nitro Wizard-7 profile. The Nitro Wizard-7 neck frame is strong and durable, even with 7 strings instead of 6, but it is also very slim. This is ideal for faster players and metallers as it suits riffs and solos superbly.
A bound ebony fingerboard tops the neck, providing a sumptuous surface beneath the fingertips. The fingerboard has has no inlays which gives it a really clean appearance.
Ibanez are used to making the best guitars particularly for metal and rock enthusiasts, and they carefully select the best pickups for each model. The SIX7FDFM 7 String guitar is fitted with DiMarzio pickups in the neck and bridge positions. These ceramic humbucker pickups expand your sound, bringing in the warmth of the mahogany body together with the bright, crisp tones of the maple top and 3-piece neck. DiMarzios are well-known for their distinctive tones and ability to cover all the frequencies, which is great for a 7 string model.
The control layout features a Master Volume pot, a coil tap switch and a 3-way pickup selector switch for easy tone shaping. The Sure Grip control knobs prevent slipping even during a heavy performance. By flipping the coil tap switch you can choose the type of voice you put out, whether you're looking to go more vintage or bring out an up-to-date contemporary sound.
