About Ibanez FR

Ibanez FR guitars are a new take on the perennially popular Tele-style guitar, redesigned and modified Ibanez-style to meet the demands of today's progressive and metal guitarists. The single cutaway body shape has been slightly offset and the headstock is the classic pointed Ibanez style which provides a fresh, aggressive look. Dual humbucking pickups deliver a powerful sound that is essential for more extreme styles.

The FR series is available in the Prestige collection or the Iron Label for ultra heavy sounding guitar tones that are proving very popular in the UK metal scene. Combining raw power with the finesse expected from Ibanez and an up to the minute look, the FR range is an excellent choice for the style-conscious and technical player.
