Iron Label SIX models feature a gorgeous flamed maple top.
In pursuit of the perfect Iron Label pickup, Ibanez collaborated with DiMarzio® to develop Fusion Edge, a series of pickups dedicated to the fullest expression of Iron Label’s sonic character. Six, seven and eight stringed instruments each have their own requirements and each Fusion Edge pickup model is built to excel in that instrument’s range.
The Fusion Edge pickup series was designed to produce a modern, progressive metal sound, with clarity, power and velocity. The neck and bridge pickups are calibrated in terms of both output and tone quality to work together as well as produce distinctive individual voices. Although all of the pickups were designed for the same purpose, they are not modifications of one design. Six, seven and eight string guitars have different performance characteristics, and the pickups for these guitars were designed individually for best performance in the individual instruments.
A beautiful bound ebony fretboard lets you fly across its smooth, quick surface and provides a tighter low end with a more percussive attack. (SIX models)
Gotoh® Locking tuners stay in tune longer, provide improved tuning accuracy, and allow for quick, efficient string changes.
Flipping the switch chooses between a pickups full output—for a more modern voice, or a lower output— to provide a more vintage-like tone.
6 and 7-string models feature a 3-pc Maple/Bubinga neck. One of the hardest woods on the planet, Bubinga provides iron-like strength for super neck stability and longer, meaner sustain.
The locked down, low profile Gibraltar Bridge is designed to be rock steady and unobtrusive.
