Featuring a 3pc Nyatoh/Maple Neck provides a rich mid-low end. The Ovangkol fretboard provides greater playing comfort. The Okoume back and sides generate a woody, warm tone when the guitar is played softly or finger-picked and provide punchy high-mids with a clear projection when strummed. The Ovangkol bridge transfers string vibration directly to the body, delivering a natural and warm tone. Ibanez Advantage bridge pins really are an advantage over old-fashioned pins. Advantage™ pins are easier to take out and easier to put in than standard pins. A special bulb-shaped end makes the pin easy to grip and also prevents the pin from being pushed in too far. Best of all, with Advantage™ the pin and string stay put.
