Coupling Jatoba with Walnut yields a neck that is strong and stable despite its thinness.
Jatoba has a reddish brown color which produces a rich mid range with a crisp high end.
The neck tongue not only creates a unique look, it also makes utilizing the higher frets easier.
The MK1 pickups are split coil designs that provides a very wide frequency range and enhanced definition for maximum accuracy. The Neck and Bridge pickups have equal response, like traditional single coils, but without the hum and noise.
The Ibanez Custom Electronics 3-band EQ w/3-way mid-frequency switch offers tonal variations that enhance simple chord work as well as complex soloing.
The Accu-cast B300 bridge affords precise intonation and delivers string-to-body vibration conductively.
