Ibanez Lari Basilio Signature LB1 Electric Guitar – Violet

$ 2699.99

The Only Axe That Can Keep Up with Lari Basilio Built to the exact specifications of Brazilian-born fretboard mestre Lari Basilio, the Ibanez LB1 is a versatile instrument that’s ready to burn. This T-style axe’s Seymour Duncan Lari Basilio signature pickups tackle smokey blues licks and high-octane runs with uniform ease, while its dyna-MIX9 switching system offers a never-ending plentitude of tones. The LB1’s S-Tech roasted maple neck and compound-radius fingerboard offer enough high-performance playability to satisfy every player — even a battle-tested G4 Experience alum like Lari. Armed with a Gotoh T1702 tremolo for expressive pitch bends and ultra-stable dive-bombs, the LB1 also includes rock-solid Gotoh Magnum Lock tuners, a bone nut, and luminescent side dots.
S-Tech roasted maple neck offers stability and durability

The LB1’s roasted maple neck was subjected to Ibanez’s S-Tech nitrogen-heating treatment, which increases its stability, durability, water resistance, and tolerance to temperature changes. This neck’s custom LB shape fills your hand nicely at the lower frets, while providing a more modern feel when you’re playing up high. And its roasted bird’s-eye maple fingerboard is tailor-made for fleet-fingered fret work, thanks to a compound radius and extra-durable jumbo stainless steel frets. The feel of this neck is enhanced by Ibanez’s Prestige fret-edge treatment, an extra step to ensure maximum playing comfort and long-term playability. You also get a sculpted neck joint for effortless access to the guitar’s upper frets, and a bone nut for maximum resonance and superior tuning stability.

Seymour Duncan Lari Basilio signature pickups yield a plentitude of tones

Voiced specifically for this guitar, the Ibanez LB1’s Seymour Duncan Lari Basilio pickups are among the most sonically flexible we’ve heard here at Irvine Art & Music. Laid out in an HSS configuration, these pickups deliver killer blues licks, scorching metal riffs, and everything in between with the utmost in dynamics and clarity — even in high-gain situations. Beyond that, Ibanez’s dyna-MIX9 switching system with an Alter switch provides nine different sound combinations and can shift between humbucker and single-coil modes with a flick of a mini toggle. You can even simulate a humbucking sound by combining the two single-coil pickups. Whatever tone you’re hearing in your head, the LB1 can achieve it.

Gotoh T1702 tremolo provides excellent tuning stability

Developed in collaboration with Gotoh, the LB1’s T1702 tremolo features brass saddles and a brass sustain block, which ensure a natural, warm tone with quick response and amazing articulation. String skipping and hybrid picking are effortless thanks to narrow string spacing. Loading the guitar’s tremolo arm is a breeze, by virtue of the T1702’s snap-and-hold socket, and its arm torque adjuster allows for fine adjustments without any tools. The T1702’s stud lock screws lock the stud bolts in place, enhancing the instrument’s resonance and providing excellent tuning stability. Beyond that, the T1702’s non-recessed design provides an astoundingly smooth tremolo motion that expressive players like Lari Basilio rely on.
