(SOLD) Ibanez JTK30H Jet King Black 2008
Ibanez JTK30H, made in China 2008, black. I'm a longtime fan of the Jet King series, I reckon they're some of Ibanez's coolest offerings ever. This one is a 3rd gen model, and the only one to get a cool semi-hollow body. At 3.2kg it's super light, plus the chambering adds some midrange complexity and dynamic sensitivity into the mix. The soapbar pickups are great too, this has a sweet balance of snappy top end and assured bass. It feels kinda compact in the hands, owing to the Gibson-style scale length and the quirky body shape. It's a lot of fun to play, you're never working too hard. I love the split guard, and paired with the pointer inlays, crown logo and weird tailpiece, this has a whole lot of pirate pawnshop swagger. Hail the King.
