[IKE Tune-up model]———————————————- ————————————————– —— A special model with the Kurosawa Ikebukuro store’s own [IKE Tune-up], which has introduced the PLEK machine! For excellent examples with excellent cost performance, our craftsmen with specialized knowledge adjust the neck relief nut and saddle based on the world’s highest adjustment technology to maximize the original sound of this example. limit. Each manufacturer’s top-of-the-range models are adjusted to the maximum possible to bring out the original performance of the instrument at the manufacturing stage, but the large cost is reflected in the selling price. On the other hand, in the low-price series, we cut various manufacturing costs to achieve attractive cost performance, but due to lack of fine adjustment, the original performance of the instrument is achieved. It is also true that there are many products that are not fully demonstrated. The [IKE Tune-up model], which is limited to our shop, maximizes the tone, sound, and playability that each individual has, and is finished with a performance that can be used immediately. ————————————————– ————————————————– ——————–

[Gibraltar Performer Bridge] “Gibraltar Performer” bridge with improved ease of handling and tuning stability. The saddle’s front/rear adjustment screw is located on the tailpiece side.

[Quik Change Classic Tailpiece] The tailpiece has a unique shape that can be said to be an AR icon. The slit in the top allows for speedy and easy string changes.
[Chambered Body Construction] While maintaining the body design of the AR, such as the outline and arch shape, this stage guitar achieves a warm sound with a lightness that is easy to handle and a rich body resonance by adopting a chambered body.
[Jatoba Fretboard] It is a Jatoba fingerboard made of hard South Sea wood with a brown/reddish brown bark and grain similar to Karin and Bubinga. It is much harder than maple and is suitable for fingerboards as it has the same hardness as rosewood.
[Set-in neck] The neck is jointed by a set-in method. The neck back slopes gently toward the joint, creating a seamless heelless shape.
The sound is bright and clear, and the outline of the sound is clear. When distorted, the sound is crisp and the sustain is long, so you can enjoy a sweet and relaxed tone.
