Ibanez may be more renowned for their ultra-modern, metal-orientated guitar designs like the RG, but instruments such as the AX series harken back to their old-school offerings from the 70s and early 80s. Aimed at beginners or intermediates looking or their first or second electric guitar, the classy-looking AX model has a great assortment of features that allow you to cover many different genres and styles of music.
With a Poplar body, this guitar delivers a balanced sound with plenty of mid-range punch, cutting through very well in busy mixes. The Maple neck offers excellent note definition and snap, meaning that you can feel the response of every chord or note that you play.
A pair of versatile medium output humbuckers can let you cover anything from hard rock to jazz, and with volume and tone controls for each pickup you can easily find the perfect blend of tones. Fitted with timeless chrome hardware, this instrument has a far more high-end look than its modest price-point suggests.
Here's what Ibanez say about the AX120-MFT in Metallic Forest:
