Legendary Super-thin, ultra-playable neck with road-tested durability.
The tight grain of Ebony provides a smooth, dense playing surface that produces a tight low-end with the quick response needed for metal.
Through close collaboration between Ibanez and DiMarzio®-Fusion Edge pickups have been engineered to produce a powerful, distinctive tone with a crisp, cutting high end, and a tight, compressed bottom end, minus any muddy mid-range.
The Edge Zero II bridge features a lower profile design for comfort, and stud lock function for superior tuning stability.
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.
The Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time.
The luminescent side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
