The Ibanez Standard SA460MBW is a bona fide rock machine. Equipped with pair of Resolution single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions, and a Quantum humbucker in the bridge, it's primed to deliver rich, high-output tone. When you pick it up for the first time, you'll notice just how easily the SA maple neck plays. As a matter of fact, everything on this guitar has been engineered for ease of use. The knobs and switches are located at the optimal distance from the treble strings, making them easy to reach without getting in your way. All the way down to the recessed input jack and T102 tremolo bridge, Ibanez made sure that the Standard SA460MBW would play and feel great right out of the box.
To achieve its biting tone, the SA460MBW is loaded with a trio of Ibanez pickups. The HSS configuration consists of two Resolution single-coil pickups and a Quantum humbucker in the bridge position. The single-coils produce the perfect blend of vintage-style brightness with a pronounced treble boost. Whether you're playing chords or lead lines, your notes will be clear and articulate. The Quantum humbucker has a hot, high-output tone with a fat dynamic range. You'll love the way the massive bass response complements the sparkling highs of the other pickups. The SA360NQM has a 5-way blade switch to unlock its full palette of tonal variety.
The SA460MBW is equipped with a bound maple neck topped with a ebony fretboard. Maple is heralded around the guitar industry for its stability and superb vibrational transfer. Carved in the SA Standard profile, this neck is built for speed and precision playing. Ripping a solo is just as easy as fretting complex chords, thanks to the jumbo frets and flatter 12-inch fretboard radius. The Ibanez Standard SA460MBW may be known as a hard rock guitar, but its quick and easy playability makes it a guitar that's well suited for any player.
From huge dive-bombs to subtle vibrato to stutter-like warbling, the Ibanez SA460MBW's tremolo is ready for anything you throw at it. When not in use, the tremolo is solid and in tune; when in use it does your bidding down to the microtone. Whether you need the trem for cool '50s-era dips or massive metal dives, the Ibanez SA460MBW is ready.
