Ibanez JTK1 Jet King Black Red Sunburst 2003
Ibanez JTK1 Jet King, red burst, made in Indonesia 2003. The Jet King line was a tribute to Ibanez' early guitars; those sweet pawnshop finds with weird body shapes and a heap of charm. This was the first version of the model, so it's got the cute little horns and aluminium guard and the 60s-style switches to split the pickups. The tone is a lot of fun: the humbuckers are perfect for angry riffs and stanky rhythm parts, or with the splits engaged, you get a bright and jangly jag-style jangle. Being an Ibanez, it's got a very sturdy and fast playing neck; it's a nice little pragmatic punk machine. The burst finish looks very tasty, it hits the manga-esque angles just right. These were only made for a couple of years, so if you've had room for one in your heart, take this one home now as they're not getting any more common.
