The Ibanez Fingerstyle Collection is perfect for players who are serious about taking their performance to the next level. Every single detail is designed to cover a wide range of playing styles; Whether you’re a traditional fingerpicker, or at the forefront of modern percussive playing. The Ibanez Fingerstyle collection, with its tonal integrity and superior playing feel, will unleash your creativity.
The body depth on the Grand Concert model is 10mm deeper-than-standard which affords rich lows and a vibrant strumming sound, despite its compact size. The thinner open pore finish highlights the texture of the wood and emphasizes the acoustic and percussive tonal properties of the instrument.
5pc neck construction boasts increased stability for alternate tunings. The deep, round neck heel construction makes playing more comfortable in the higher register. The combination of a 45mm wide nut and thin C shape neck is ideal for the complex fretting and arpeggios of Fingerstyle.
The Ibanez under-saddle pickup reduces noise and provides wide range of natural piezo-style sound. It also captures palm hits and delivers a bass drum-like response. Since it’s placed on the neck block, the Ibanez contact pickup is resistant to feedback and evenly captures percussive sound from the body to the neck. It also adds air and brightness to the piezo-style sound by capturing acoustic tones from within the body. The DP1 Preamp naturally amplifies the signal from the Dual Pickups. You can precisely blend the sound of both pickups using the simple control layout (Under-saddle pickup volume / Contact pickup volume), which reduces added holes in the body to maintain tonal integrity.
