Ibanez Introduces Two New Pat Metheny Models

United States
English
Bensalem, PA -- The longtime relationship between jazz great Pat Metheny and Ibanez, his guitar-maker-of-choice for several decades, has yielded two exciting new guitars. Collectors, serious jazz players, and fans of this year’s Downbeat Reader’s Poll winner in the Jazz guitar category will be thrilled to know the guitarist has collaborated with the guitar builder on two new instruments.

The made-in-Japan PM200 NT (List $4,666.65) is built to Metheny’s exacting specifications, and players can expect a full tone from the 16.5” width maple body. Custom made Silent 58 pickups and bone nut combine to produce smooth, warm response. Fine grain ebony fretboard delivers clean, articulated phrasing.

As an option to working musicians and serious students of jazz guitar, Ibanez is also introducing a Metheny version of their new Artstar series. The PM2AA (List $1,333.32) is the guitarist’s favorite of Ibanez’s new Artstar line, and customized to his taste. This all-maple full hollow body sports the legendary Ibanez jazz pickup, the Super 58, and is built to satisfy the purist.

Both guitars include cases.
