Ibanez Prestige Uppercut FR6UCS-BKF, Black Flat
Ibanez Prestige Uppercut FR6UCS-BKF Overview by GAK:
About as close to a perfect modern rock guitar as you are going to get, the Ibanez Uppercut FR6UC is stripped to the core essentials whilst exuding the class and supreme build quality you would expect from a Japanese crafted Prestige instrument. The Basswood body has an extremely well balanced tone and has a smooth, Flat Black finish. The The Tight-End bridge is perfectly designed to anchor with rigidness and accuracy. Saddles are firmly locked onto the base plate for maximum string vibration, and remain perfectly linear during intonation adjustment for the most accurate set-up. The saddle height can be adjusted individually by one screw. Also, the top side of the bridge is smooth finished. So if you play hard, the Tight-End bridge will absorb your hand's punishment without dishing out any of its own. New for 2017 is the upgraded atainless steel frets!!
Hand-wound in UK, the Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups deliver accelerated bass response for tracking high-speed staccato riffing, with increased focus in the mids, and superb high-end articulation; perfect for the modern metal guitarist. The Aftermath bridge humbucker features a symmetrically hand-wound twin screw coil design and is powered by 3 custom size ceramic magnets. With a more compressed dynamic, single notes have masses of sustain while the front of the note is clear-cut and defined even under extreme amounts of gain. The Aftermath neck humbucker is Alnico V powered and voiced for fat, powerful clean tones, fluid vocal-like sustain when driven hard and good balance with the bridge humbucker. As Bare Knuckle Pickups' MD Tim Mills discovered, "Ibanez were as obsessive about tone as myself and thoroughly knowledgeable about all aspects of guitar design including pickups" and he is very proud for his excellent pickups to be chosen for the Uppercut series.
The already legendary 5pc Maple/Walnut Wizard HP Prestige neck has the addition of a genuine Ebony fingerboard which, combined with the immaculate Prestige Fret Edge Treatment on the extremely hard and smooth stainless steel frets, provides a playing experience second to none. And the Gotoh® Magnum Lock machineheads offer incredible tuning stability. Regular 25.5" scale but factory tuned down a step. Fitted hardshell case included.
