More about the FR series

The FR series is a line of solid body electric guitar models produced by Hoshino Gakki and sold under the Ibanez brand. The FR line was introduced in 2008. It is believed that FR is acronym for Freestyle Rock Gear although that moniker is rarely used by Ibanez.[1]

The FR has a completely new body shape, which is reminiscent of the Fender Telecaster. It is also similar to the Ibanez Ballback/Turbot and the 'Starfield Cabriolet' models which were all inspired to some degree by the Tele shape.

All FR models feature either an ash or mahogany body, a bolt-on 24 fret Wizard neck and the Calm Crusher pickups specially designed for the series, although the FR6UC Uppercut is equipped with Bare Knuckle Aftermath pickups. The Tight-End bridge premiered on the FR but was also used later on hard-tail JEM and RG models. This bridge would be featured on all FR models, except for the FR365, which featured a traditional fixed bridge. (more...)
