Here's what Ibanez say about the FRIX6FDQM:
As the legion of converts to the “Made-for-Metal” Iron Label series grows by leaps and bounds, Ibanez continues to tap the molten metal underworld for inspiration.
Re-working the famous FR from the chassis on up, Ibanez turns up the volume of the flash and fury of the frantic shredder with the FRIX6FDQM. The FR Series was designed as a musical chameleon, suited to handle anything from Classic Metal to cutting-edge Metalcore.
Body & Neck
Now, this sleek beauty continues to evolve as a member of the Iron Label series. The FRIX6FDQMfeatures a beautiful Quilted Maple top with a stunning Black Mirage Gradation finish.
The bound Ebony fretboard mounted on a 3-piece Maple/Purpleheart Nitro Wizard neck enhances agility and optimizes clarity.
The FRIX6 is armed with DiMarzio Fusion Edge pickups, the result of a direct collaboration between DiMarzio and Ibanez.
Fusion Edge pickups provide a clear tone and a very smooth response, satisfying the current demands of today’s metal players. The Gibraltar Standard II bridge provides the optimal transfer of each string’s vibration.
Gotoh locking machine heads provide superior tuning stability and help to expedite string changes. The FR Iron Label is a perfect choice for the metal player looking for a more modern guitar that features the ultimate in both sound and playability.
