Well now, what do we have here? A few years back Ibanez introduced the Iron Label series firmly aimed at Metal guitarists who wanted a solid, simple instrument without breaking the bank. This year that Iron Label series was embellished with some new fancy finishes and will continue to do so into 2016 with a fan fret model, baritone 6 string and some nice figured tops rather than just black that was available at launch.
For 2016 Ibanez are taking this concept and launching a new top end Prestige series called the Ibanez Prestige Uppercut which, in a similar fashion to how the Iron Label series launched, features just 3 sweet looking Black guitars loaded with Bare Knuckle pickups.
The 3 models available are:
The 7 string RGD7UC featuring a 26.5″ scale, extra deep cutaways for upper fret access, a Wizard-7 5pc Maple/Wenge neck with KTS™ TITANIUM rods and a set of Bare Knuckle Aftermath 7 humbuckers.
The ARZ6UC 24 fret single cutaway with a 3pc Maple/Mahogany set-in neck, Maple top and Mahogany body and a pair of Bare Knuckle Nailbomb humbuckers.
Finally the FR6UC, with a Wizard HP 5pc Maple/Walnut neck, Tight-End bridge, Jumbo frets w/Prestige fret edge treatment, Mahogany body and a pair of Bare Knuckle Aftermath humbuckers.
