2016 FRIX6FEAH CSF
FRIX6FEAH Charcoal Stained Flat Red copyright sprite

The FRIX6FEAH is an FR series solid body electric guitar introduced by Ibanez in late 2016. It was the first FR series model in the metal-focused Iron Label line.

The FRIX6FEAH features an ash top on a mahogany body bolted to a maple and bubinga Nitro Wizard neck with a 24-fret ebony fingerboard with binding and no inlays. Components include dual EMG active humbucking pickups, a Gibraltar Standard II hard-tail bridge, Gotoh locking tuners and a kill switch.

For 2018 the neck was replaced by a maple and purpleheart construction and luminescent side dots were added. For 2019 the mahogany body was replaced with nyatoh.

The FRIX7FEAH is a similar seven-string model. The FRIX6FDQM is a similar model with a quilted maple top and passive DiMarzio pickups.

The FRIX6FEAH was available in the US and Japan markets from July 2016.[1]

The FRIX6FEAH was discontinued after 2019.
