Great Tone and Effortless Playability
The Ibanez Standard SEW761FM is a bona fide rock machine. Equipped with pair of DiMarzio True Velvet single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions, and a DiMarzio Tone Zone humbucker in the bridge, it’s primed to deliver rich, high-output tone. When you pick it up for the first time, you’ll notice just how easily the Wizard III neck plays. As a matter of fact, everything on this guitar has been engineered for ease of use. The knobs and switches are located at the optimal distance from the treble strings, making them easy to reach without getting in your way. All the way down to the recessed input jack and sturdy F106 hardtail bridge, Ibanez made sure that the Standard SEW761FM would play and feel great right out of the box.
HSS pickup configuration yields a wide variety of tones
To achieve its biting tone, the SEW761FM is loaded with a trio of DiMarzio pickups. The HSS configuration consists of two DiMarzio True Velvet single-coil pickups and a Tone Zone humbucker in the bridge position. The single-coils produce the perfect blend of vintage-style brightness with a pronounced treble boost. Whether you’re playing chords or lead lines, your notes will be clear and articulate. The DiMarzio Tone Zone humbucker has a hot, high-output tone with a fat dynamic range. You’ll love the way the massive bass response complements the sparkling highs of the other pickups. The SEW761FM has a 5-way blade switch to unlock its full palette of tonal variety.
Roasted maple neck and rosewood fretboard
The SEW761FM is equipped with a roasted maple neck topped with a rosewood fretboard. Maple is heralded around the guitar industry for its stability and superb vibrational transfer. Carved in the Wizard III profile, this neck is built for speed and precision playing. Like all Wizards, it’s incredibly thin and effortlessly playable. Ripping a solo is just as easy as fretting complex chords, thanks to the jumbo frets and flatter 15-inch fretboard radius. The Ibanez Standard SEW761FM may be known as a hard rock guitar, but its quick and easy playability makes it a guitar that’s well suited for any player.
Enjoy the benefits of the F106 hardtail bridge
Sure, it’s fun to pull off huge dive-bombs with a tremolo bridge. However, lots of guitarists here at Sweetwater prefer the stability of a hardtail bridge. You can absolutely abuse your strings with aggressive picking and strumming, and you’ll stay in tune much better compared to a guitar with a tremolo bridge. Plus, you can bend to your heart’s content without having to worry about knocking other strings out of tune. Simply put: you’ll absolutely love the tuning stability of the SEW761FM’s hardtail bridge.
