Although most of his viral YouTube videos come in at under a minute, Ichika Nito's immense talent leaves a lasting impression. Indeed, as one of today's leading internet guitar personalities, Ichika has made waves online thanks to his world-class performances and impeccable technique. With the Ibanez Ichika Signature ICHI10, you are one step closer to harnessing the skill of one of Japan's most virtuosic performers! This 6-string headless guitar boasts an understated nyatoh body with a gorgeous 3-piece roasted maple/bubinga neck capped with roasted birdseye maple, perfect for nailing that timeless Strat feel yet optimized with updated features to handle the needs of today's players. Three R-1 pickups deliver the full range of single-coil tones, with a dyna-MIX8 switching system for unleashing even more scintillating sounds. Throw in Jescar EVO gold frets and luminescent side dots, and it comes as no surprise that the Ibanez Ichika Signature ICHI10 has made its way to the top of countless Music Experience wish lists.

    Top-shelf tonewoods for a melodic master

    Ibanez equipped the ICHI10 with high-performing woods throughout to handle Ichika Nito's unique style and performances, which has resulted in one of the sleekest and most straightforward headless guitars on the market. A nyatoh body forms a solid foundation for the ICHI10's resonant, ear-pleasing tone, with a striking 3-piece roasted maple and bubinga neck that rests comfortably in your fretting hand in all positions. Speaking of the neck, Ibanez shaped it to an effortlessly playable Wizard "C" profile — quite fitting for the guitar wizardry Ichika cooks up. A roasted birdseye maple fingerboard rounds out the ICHI10's intoxicating tonewood cocktail, imbuing plenty of speed for fast playing across all 24 frets while adding an eye-grabbing "pop" to the overall instrument.

    Coveted single-coil sounds and so much more

    Needless to say, the ICHI10 is geared to meet the demands of today's progressive players. That being said, its high-powered electronics serve up single-coil tones that are sure to please Strat lovers the world over. Ibanez threw a trio of their R-1 single-coil pickups into the ICHI10 to achieve just that, conjuring the crisp, clean tone of timeless single-coils with plenty of brightness and shimmer. This is made even better with the onboard dyna-MIX8 switching system and Alter Switch. With this sophisticated switching system, a wealth of different pickup tones is at your disposal, all accessed with a standard 5-way blade. Set the Alter Switch to off, and you get your standard SSS pickup positions. Flip the Alter Switch to on, and the ICHI10's tonal versatility is exponentially increased, with different positions unlocking series-connected single-coil sounds. From creamy cleans to tight and focused crunch, the ICHI10 handles it all with aplomb.

    Wizard C 3pc Roasted Maple/Bubinga neck

    To meet the demand of various playing styles, this Wizard C neck has a very neutral shape – it’s not too thick, too thin, or too flat. The 3pc Roasted Maple/Bubinga construction also offers great stability and long-term durability.

    Roasted Birdseye Maple fretboard

    The beautiful Birdseye Maple fretboard imbues this model with an exotic appearance . The fretboard is heat-treated for a balanced attack and rich sustain.

    Jescar EVOgold™ frets

    Jescar EVOgold™ frets are known for their bright tone, gorgeous appearance, and excellent features such as long-lasting durability and smooth note bending.

    Nyatoh body

    Nyatoh used as the body wood provides a rich mid-low end.

    R1 S-S-S pickups

    Our new R1 pickups are designed specifically for use in headless guitars. They provide a clearly defined sound, facilitating excellent tonal balance through all frequencies. The lows are powerful without being muddy, and the highs are bright and clear, but never harsh. As a result, every single note within the chord structure is well defined, and clearly audible. These pickups, with their tonal balance, and extremely low noise performance, work extremely well with both digital and analog effects.

    Custom string lock

    This custom string lock is one-piece unit that features very simple construction. This means the hardware requires less maintenance, is highly durable, and allows for very easy string changes. Additionally, no proprietary string is required, so you can continue to use your favorite gauge and brand.

    Mono-Tune bridges

    The Mono-Tune bridges offer a wide intonation range so that you can easily set the instrument up for tuning down a whole step or even further. The string height is also easily adjustable, and each saddle generally has less material, which leads to more natural and organic tone.

    dyna-MIX8 switching system with Alter Switch

    The dyna-MIX 8 offers eight sound variations and can switch between humbucker and single coil modes with just a flick of the mini switch. It even simulates a humbucking sound from the combination of two single coil pickups.

    Ergonomic body design 

    The body features a number of strategically placed curves on both the top and back of the instrument. This complex, yet sophisticated design provides maximum playing comforts.

    Compact and light-weight, yet resonant body 

    While it is really compact and light-weight, its non-chambered, solid body provides great sound with rich woody tones.
