« Unique Ibanez Power series guitar »Publié le 11/05/11 à 04:56
The body on this is definitely an acquired taste. One real cool thing it does is have an extended lower horn to get to the higher frets easier. While it's easier getting there, I find the back of my hand tends to hit the lower horn since it's extended. The upper horn actually feels fairly normal, so I think it's just the lower horn that's extended and pushed back. The guitar came equipped with the famous Ibanez Edge bridge, and those things are absolutely amazing. It's easily one of my favorite floyds out there.
The pickups in this guitar sucked. That said, the guitar itself was very vibrant. I didn't replace the pickups in this actual model, but I know that DiMarzios tend to work awesome with the basswood bodies that Ibanez mainly uses. I have this problem with most Ibanez for whatever reason. The electronics are a real weak point, and they're only just now starting to use actual production model DiMarzio and Duncan pickups, but even then, they're not in all the models...
These guitars are hard to come by now. If you're an Ibanez fan, it's worth checking out. The Power series was a unique line of guitars that helped push the more extreme looks of guitars in the late 80s. Just be sure not to pay too much for one of these as they can be a bit hit or miss, and if the neck wasn't taken care of, there's a chance it could have warped.
