Anaheim, CA, 14 Jan 2008 — With recent wins by the modern jazz icon in both the Downbeat and Jazz Times readers’ polls, Pat Metheny’s new Ibanez signature model couldn’t debut at a better time.
The new PM35NT has the all the appointments, construction and tone needed to satisfy to discerning jazz guitar adherents—but at a surprisingly inexpensive price relative to most jazz boxes. At just $1066.65 list, the PM35’s price is significantly less than Pat’s PM100 and PM120 Prestige professional models. The PM35 features a super-stable 5pc neck of maple and bubinga, a full-hollow maple body, and the Ibanez Super 58 pickup, a humbucker renowned for its sweet and warm tones
The PM35NT is at the head of a large number—actually over a dozen—of new jazz boxes in the Ibanez lineup that debuted at the 2008 Winter NAMM.
