Gear Reviews

Ibanez S8QM-TRB marked „Top Gear”

TopGuitar is proud to announce, that the S8QM-TRB electric guitar from Ibanez had been reviewed for the June issue of the magazine and received a “Top Gear” editors’ award this month.

Below are some excerpts from a successful review by gear department editor Krzysztof Blas, which may serve as reasons for the award:

“The tested guitar sounds quite bright and dynamic – despite two additional bass strings it was possible to retain the selectivity which isolated the lowest notes from those played by the bass player.”

“Ibanez S8QM-TRB is a highly refined and well-built instrument. Its exclusive look makes it suitable not only for brutal metal genres but also those lighter, rock ones. Great craftsmanship, choice of materials, proven concept – Ibanez knows how to construct perfect instruments.”

“S8QM-TRB is a guitar that can inspire you to search not only for new tones, but also for interesting harmonies and atypical chords.”
