Ibanez TAM100 Tosin Abasi 8-String Signature Model

Initially inspired by the RG2228, Animals as Leaders’ Tosin Abasi collaborated on every aspect of this new guitar. Tosin’s selection of woods was influenced by his Ibanez Prestige bass. For the neck and fretboard, Wenge was chosen for its clarity and the frequencies it emphasizes. He also requested a thinner neck as well as a thinner body. The lower horn is designed to accommodate Abasi’s particular positioning of upper fretboard play. Tosin worked with DiMarzio to develop his own Ionizer8™ humbucker and single coil pickups incorporated with a 5-way switch and a single coil tap switch.

Retail price: $5,333.32.
