We are so pleased to announce Ichika Nito becoming an Ibanez signature artist, and proudly introduce his signature model ICHI10.
In this video Ichika talks about relationship with Ibanez and his signature guitar project.
Internet sensation and renowned Guitarist Ichika Nito, gained his global following and reputation through a unique combination of complex techniques and an easily identifiable signature sound. He captivates music fans and musicians alike with his unconventional, experimental style and a wholly original musical approach, through which he has become a favorite player and a major influence to players around the world.
Of all the options available to him, Ichika chose the headless Q (Quest) series from Ibanez on which to base his new signature model. This guitar largely holds to the specifications and design of the Q54, with a few notable changes. Ichika’s guitar features three Ibanez proprietary R1 single coil pickups rather than the standard HSS configuration. This setup helps accentuate Ichika’s emphasis on tonal clarity as well as bright, glassy sounds to help balance the highly rhythmic and percussive elements to his playing. Ichika’s exciting and original signature design, capitalizes on original hardware and pickup designs from Ibanez and will serve as an indispensable asset in expressing his ever-evolving musical style.
