The first J Custom guitars were made in 1996, and for the twenty years since they have been the icons of everything an electric guitar aspires to be. As Ibanez have continued to develop guitar technology – like the ZPS3 zero point tremolo system – these have been integrated into new models in the J Custom series.
These guitars are almost never made for the UK market, but this year, five have been produced.
Due to the time and care taken to make each J Custom guitar, Ibanez only accept orders for these spectacular guitars in two months of each year – but this year, Sounds Great Music are proud and delighted to have two to offer. Each of these limited edition pieces has a unique and distinct look, made with materials carefully selected by Ibanez including maple, American Basswood, and African Mahogany to deliver the perfect sound.
Only one of each design is available in the UK – and they are available only through Sounds Great Music.
There’s no denying the beauty of these guitars, but it’s even harder to deny the beauty of the music made with them.
Not for the beginner, not for the faint hearted, and loved by many – including rock idol Nita Strauss, who graced us for a Masterclass earlier this year – the Ibanez J Custom series is available in the UK for a short while through Sounds Great Music, but with only one of each model, demand will be high.
