X Marks The Spot (With A Vengeance)

Anaheim, CA, 18 January 2007 — Twenty-five years after the Ibanez X-Series name was given to some of Ibanez’s more radically shaped guitars, the X-Series is being reinvigorated with five new and original designs, all named after real or mythological weaponry.

In the higher-end, the new X-shaped XP700 Xiphos and the V-shaped V-Blade feature thru-necks and DiMarzio’s new D Activator pickups.

In the very affordable category, three differently shaped Arondite models offer the classic combination of set-necks, hi-power humbuckers and mahogany bodies.

The X-shaped Xiphos lists for 866.65. The V-shaped V-Blade lists for $799.99. The three different Arondite models list for just $399.99.

Background

The Xiphos was a double-edged, single-handed sword used by the ancient Greeks. The Arondite is the name of Lancelot’s sword.

D’Marzio D Activator pickups were designed to offer the sound of an active pickup, often the preference of metal players, but without the need for battery power.
