Ibanez S61AL-BML HH
Primed for Maximum Performance:
How much performance can you pack into one guitar? The Ibanez Axion Label S61AL explores the answer to that question. It all starts with a resonant nyatoh body, whose warmth, fullness, and sustain is augmented by the snap and bite of an eye-catching flamed maple top. Beyond that, a comfortable Macassar ebony-capped, 5-piece Nitro Wizard neck ensures maximum playability. Experience the full gamut of aggressive yet articulate high-gain tones, thanks to a duo of Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers. Tuning stability is rock solid, thanks to a Gibraltar II hardtail bridge, and Gotoh locking tuners make string changes a breeze. Luminescent side dots and an attractive satin finish round out the S61AL’s generous feature set.
Your fingers will fly on this super-fast Nitro Wizard neck:
One of Ibanez’s fastest necks to date, the 5-piece panga panga/walnut Nitro Wizard neck on the S61AL is an absolute pleasure to play. This slim and super-comfortable neck, topped with a Macassar ebony fretboard, lets you pull off lightning-fast runs and arpeggios with ease but still gives you the substance you need for fretting chords. From the first time we wrapped our hands around the S61AL’s Nitro Wizard neck, we knew we had a guitar that was built with performance in mind.
Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers:
The Fishman Fluence Modern Humbuckers in the Axion Label S61AL deliver the most sought-after humbucking tones, from modern active to high-output humbucking. Unlike most wire-wound models, Fluence pickups manage to serve up this massive tone arsenal without noise or inductance issues. On top of that, Fishman Fluence Modern Humbucker pickups provide you with your choice of two distinctly different voices for each pickup. You can change the voicing via the push-pull function on the volume knob.
Fixed-bridge stability, sustain, and articulation:
The S61AL sports a Gibraltar II fixed bridge — a dream come true if you prefer a hardtail axe. You’ll appreciate the Gibraltar II’s extremely low profile, which offers the comfort of a traditional floating tremolo with the exceptional stability and reliability you can only get from a fixed bridge.
