The Ibanez SA series is an established part of Ibanez's lineup. Popular for their excellent quality and affordability, these instruments are perfect for the intermediate guitar player looking to upgrade from their first instrument, or for an experienced player looking for a versatile guitar that won't break the bank. With a gorgeous Quilted Maple top and an H/S/S pickup configuration, this guitar has classy aesthetics and versatile tones.
TheSA460QM-ABB's Mahogany body will give you plenty of low-end thump and a warm mid-range, whilst still having plenty of top-end sizzle thanks to the brightness of its Maple neck. Adorned with a stunning Quilted Maple top, you can be sure that this instrument will get plenty of attention on stage.
The neck has a comfortable profile, with Ibanez's signature thin feel. However, it isn't too slim like the Wizard neck carves, meaning you can play chords without feeling any fatigue or strain. Topped with a Jatoba fretboard, this premium wood will feel sleek and smooth under the fingers, letting you play fast, technical solos without hindrance.
Electronics and Hardware
An H/S/S pickup configuration will always give you great versatility, offering a number of tonal options. With the potent-sounding Quantum bridge humbucker able to deal with high doses of gain, it can also clean up nicely when you roll down the volume control. The Resolution single-coils are perfect for clean tones, with that S-style spank and sparkle.
The Ibanez T102 synchronised tremolo will let you add gentle warbles to chords for some extra vibe, or you could even use it for divebombs on lead lines just like Satriani! And with a set of locking machine heads, you can enjoy fast string changes and improved tuning stability.
