Ibanez TQM1 Standard, Natural

Tom Quayle’s fluid hybrid-picking legato technique and classic-flavored tone are the stuff of legends. And the jazz fusion virtuoso’s signature Ibanez TQM1 makes it look easy. Its balanced-sounding alder body is capped with a handsome monkeypod top.


Its Seymour Duncan Hyperion humbuckers maintain your clarity when you crank up the overdrive, while its dyna-MIX 9 switching system supplies nine versatile pickup combinations. You’ll revel in the unrivaled comfort and stability of the TQM1’s S-TECH WOOD roasted maple neck and fingerboard. And you won’t have to sacrifice intonation while bending, twisting, and dive-bombing, thanks to the TQM1’s Gotoh T1802 tremolo. Part of Ibanez’s upscale Signature line, the TQM1 is top-shelf all the way.

Ibanez is one of the first Japanese musical instrument companies to gain a significant foothold in import guitar sales in the United States and Europe, as well as the first brand of guitars to mass-produce the seven-string guitar and eight-string guitar. The company has an impressive lineup of products ranging from instruments to pedals and accessories, and have recently raised standards and eyebrows with the new AZ Series, which Josh Smith described as the best superstrat he’s played in a long time.
