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 QX54 - Slanted Frets for Enhanced Playability!

With its flat-radius, slanted-fret fingerboard — Ibanez's QX54 model is definitely one for the more "extreme" players! Although subtle compared to fully-fanned fret guitars, the QX54's distinctive 8-degree fret angle enables technically-proficient guitarists to execute fast, intricate techniques more efficiently as the slant accommodates the natural inward tilt of your fingers. It makes perfect sense when you think about it!

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.
  • Quilted Maple Top — Stunning wood grain exudes a truly premium aesthetic.
  • Roasted Maple/Bubinga Neck — 3-piece construction ensures rock-solid stability in changeable climates and conditions.
  • Parallel Wizard Profile — Neck is 19mm thick all the way through the entire length; providing a consistent fretting-hand experience for guitarists who prefer their instrument held in a higher playing position.
  • 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.
