Ibanez TQM1NT overview

  • 1Description

Styled in a natural finish, the Ibanez Tom Quayle Series TQM1 is an electric guitar with an alder body and a top fashioned out of a wood with the unlikely name of monkeypod. Its neck, which measures 25.5" in scale, is crafted out of roasted maple, offering a roasted maple fingerboard with 22 stainless-steel jumbo frets. Abalone dot inlays are provided, as are luminescent side inlays so you can track fret positions on darkened stages. Strings are anchored to the body by a Gotoh T1802 tremolo bridge, while the headstock makes use of Gotoh MAGNUM LOCK machine heads. 

For electronics, this guitar employs two Seymour Duncan Hyperion single-coil pickups and one Hyperion humbucker. These feature a moderate output to preserve the clarity of your tone, even when you're playing through heaps of distortion. They also help you retain the definition of your pick attack, though not at the expense of tonal balance.

The guitar gives you a 5-way pickup selector switch, but two different pickup configurations are available through the Alter mini-switch. This gives you effectively nine different guitar tones, some single-coil focused, and other more humbucker in sound. Volume and tone knobs are also on hand to shape your timbre.

Monkeypod Top
The TQM1 features a monkeypod body top that offers a distinctive wood grain and provides clarity and superior articulation.
AZ Oval Roasted Maple Neck
The S-TECH roasted treatment increases the wood's stability, durability, water resistance, and tolerance of temperature changes.
Roasted Maple Fingerboard with Black Dot Inlays
S-TECH roasted treatment is also employed on the fingerboard, securing a well-balanced attack as well as a bolstered tone and a rich sustain.
Super All Access Neck Joint
The Super All Access Neck Joint offers eminent playability with its 8mm concave curve from the top of the body to the spherical surface of the joint. By maximizing the joint area between the body and the neck, sustain and resonance are increased as well.
Luminescent Side Dot Inlay
The luminescent side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fingerboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
Gotoh MAGNUM LOCK Machine Heads with Height-Adjustable Posts
The AZ comes with Gotoh MAGNUM LOCK machine heads, which have an established reputation for tuning stability. Its H.A.P. (height adjustable post) system allows for the adjustment of string posts for the appropriate tension of each string.
Oil-Impregnated Bone Nut and Stainless-Steel Frets
The oil-impregnated bone nut provides excellent tuning stability and a warm, rich resonance. Stainless-steel frets foster corrosion resistance. The wide and tall fret-type offers a quick response, good articulation when playing chords, and a clear tone when playing single notes.
Seymour Duncan Hyperion Pickups
Seymour Duncan Hyperion Pickups feature a moderate output through Alnico-5 magnets to preserve the clarity of the fundamental tone when using a distortion sound. These pickups also deliver a clear pick attack. From treble to bass, the overall tonal balance is evenly adjusted, and works well with various effect pedals.
dyna-MIX 9 Switching System with Alter Switch
dyna-MIX 9 offers nine sound variations and can easily switched between humbucker and single-coil modes with just the mini-switch. One mode is even able to simulate a humbucker sound from the combination of the 2 single-coil pickups.
Gotoh T1802 Synchronized Bridge
The T1802 tremolo bridge features machined titanium saddles and a machined steel tremolo block for a quick response, thick lows, and rich highs. The 10.5mm string spacing allows for easy picking across strings. Its snap-in construction makes it easy to load a tremolo arm.
