The Ibanez FRIX7FEAH-CSF Limited Run 7 String Guitar is a high performance shred machine, with great quality electronics and hardware. Considering its price, you get an incredible instrument that is built to last and can deliver some amazing tones.
Electronics and Hardware:
The FRIX7FEAH-CSF has dual US-made EMG 707 active pickups that are capable of handling even the most insane levels of gain. Their tight, compressed sound keeps things sounding focussed and clear, even on the 7th string.
A 3-way blade switch can let you choose your ideal pickup combination, with the 707 in the neck position delivering a bold and smooth tone that is great for cleans or leads. The 707 in the bridge gives a brighter tone with plenty of punch and bite, providing a tone that is perfect for heavy riffs! The middle position gives you the best of both worlds, and the close ergonomic placement of the switch allows you to quickly change your sound for different sections in your music.
A single volume control keeps things simple, and the added killswitch lets you produce some choppy and percussive riff ideas – think Tom Morello!
The fixed Gibraltar Standard II bridge is smooth and comfortable for palm-muting, and is designed to provide the best transfer of each string's vibration straight into the guitar’s body for ultimate sustain and resonance.
The “Metal” Look:
The stealthy all-black finish provides a pure-metal look, with the dark ebony fretboard and black hardware keeping it sleek. White binding around the body and neck adds a touch of class, giving it a more custom and expensive aesthetic.
The ultra-thin Nitro Wizard neck offers the best playability and comfort, letting you dance around the fretboard with no difficulty whatsoever.
Its mahogany body produces a rounded and warm tone, delivering a bold low-end that brings the most out of the 7th string.
