This guitar is near mint condition. The action is nice and the slim profile neck with an ebony fretboard with mother of pearl and abalone inlays has a comfortable feel. The Silent 58 humbuckers have a great jazz tone with good output.
OVERVIEW A true stickler's favorite axe.
They hounded him for years, but Pat Metheny wasn't interested in an Ibanez bearing his signature. Finally they convinced him they were serious. It took years more before they finally came up with an axe he liked more than the one he was playing. What they came up with was this guitar. The upper bout cutaway lets the neck join the body at the 17th fret for finger-flying freedom beyond the traditional jazz hollowbody. Maple top, back, and thinline sides with 2 Silent 58 humbuckers provide a thick, modulated jazz tone with a lot of flexibility. Gold hardware multiple top binding, and neck/head binding combine with tripartite MOP inlays on an ebony fretboard for fabulous looks.
