The Q or Quest series is an entirely new concept for Ibanez.
The “Quest” in this case was to not just to adapt an existing instrument into a headless design, but to develop an entirely new guitar from the ground up. This range features a number of unique elements intended to maximize tone, performance, and playing comfort. These include, custom designed R1 single coil and Q58 humbucker pickups, a new Mono-Tune bridge, and a proprietary custom string locking mechanism.
The QX subseries is also equipped with innovative 8-degree inward slanted frets. The X stands for x-tra comfortable.
