The Q (Quest) Series encompasses Ibanez's most progressive electric guitars to date. Developed from the ground up, these cutting-edge instruments cater for the newest generation of players — those who seek portable, ergonomic tools that can keep up with the increasingly technical and flamboyant styles spreading across modern rock and metal music.

Features for the Forward-Thinking

Headless guitars are pushing far beyond the formulas of the past, and Ibanez has fully embraced this shift in contemporary instrument design with its Q Series. Boasting a number of additional unique elements intended to maximise tone, performance and playing comfort — including custom-made pickups, a 'dyna-MIX' switching system, a highly-adjustable 'Mono Tone' bridge and a proprietary string-locking mechanism — the Q Series makes guitarists of all disciplines question the full scope of their creative potential.

Ibanez Q54 - A Versatile Tone Machine!

Ibanez's Q54 model will satisfy any headless guitar enthusiast, but with its straight-fret fingerboard and flexible HSS pickup configuration — it's arguably the most accessible, all-round instrument in the lineup. A brilliant option for players who may have never even considered a headless guitar before, the Q54 will easily captivate any musician that picks it up!

Key Features

  • Ergonomic Q Series Design — The compact, lightweight body features a number of strategically-placed curves on both the top and back; boosting comfort. Headless neck reduces total instrument length to just 80 centimetres!
  • Nyatoh Body — An ideal tonal foundation for the versatile HSS pickup layout; offering a rich mid-range and tight low-end.
  • Roasted Maple/Bubinga Neck — 3-piece construction ensures rock-solid stability in changeable climates and conditions.
  • Wizard "C" Profile — Neutral shape caters for various playing styles; it’s not too thick, too thin, or too flat.
  • Roasted Birdseye Maple Fretboard — Heat-treated for a balanced attack and rich sustain. Has plenty of exotic flair too!
  • 24 Jescar EVO Gold Frets — Material is renowned for its durability, vibrant tone and silky-smooth feel; allowing for effortless string bending.
  • Luminescent Side Dots — Glow-in-the-dark markers will always let you know where you're at, even on the most ill-lit stages!
  • Custom String Lock — 1-piece unit features a very simple design; meaning less maintenance, great longevity and easy string changes. No specialised string is required, so you can continue to use your favourite gauge and brand!
  • Mono Tune Bridge — Provides a wide intonation range; making it straightforward to set the instrument up for drop-tunings. String height is also easily adjustable.
  • Proprietary Q58 & R1 Pickups — Designed specifically for the Q Series, these pickups deliver a clearly-defined sound; facilitating excellent balance through all frequencies.
  • dyna-MIX9 Switching System — Offers 9 pickup variations for a wide sonic palette. Can switch between humbucker and single-coil modes with just a flick of the mini alter switch!
  • Included Gig Bag — Durable construction protects the guitar against knocks on the road.
