All Hail the Destroyer

The Ibanez Destroyer DT520 solidbody electric guitar gives you instant attitude - sonically and visually. The DT520 serves up fat, snarling tone and prodigious sustain, courtesy of its hardtail design, resonant mahogany body, and two DiMarzio humbuckers - an Air Norton in the neck position and a Tone Zone at the bridge. You'll relish the uber-playability of the fast mahogany neck and bound rosewood fingerboard. With its radical reverse body shape, this axe will command attention wherever you wield it. Say hello to your new weapon of choice: the Ibanez Destroyer DT520.

Ibanez Destroyer DT520 Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • It's all about the Tone Zone
  • The Air Norton is a fabulous neck pickup
  • If looks could kill...
It's all about the Tone Zone

The Ibanez Destroyer DT520 has a DiMarzio Tone Zone stationed at the bridge. Now, the Tone Zone is hot, but it has a wider dynamic range than most hot pickups. Pick delicately and it serves up tasty cleans; dig in and you've got truckloads of power for full-shred mayhem. This humbucker has powerful bass and low-mid response to reinforce your bottom end, making for a massive overall sound. High notes have depth, and chords sound enormous. DiMarzio's patented dual-resonance coils deliver plentiful overtones, giving you much more dimensionality than you'd expect from such a fat-sounding pickup.

The Air Norton is a fabulous neck pickup

In the neck position, the Ibanez Destroyer DT520 rocks a DiMarzio Air Norton. Deep and warm-toned but not muddy, the Air Norton may well be the ultimate neck humbucker. This pup's hot, but not distorted. It even delivers beautiful harmonics - rather unusual for a neck 'bucker. Air Norton's patented magnetic structure reduces string-pull, giving you improved sustain while your pick attack and dynamics remain expressive and completely controllable.

If looks could kill...

If you're after a guitar that looks as mean as it sounds, then Sweetwater has your axe. The Destroyer body shape alone is enough to convey instant attitude. Throw in the distinctive pointy headstock and pearl/abalone block inlays, and you've got one arresting-looking guitar. The Ibanez Destroyer DT520 is one of the sharpest-looking guitars around; a serious axe wielder's instrument of destruction. Exactly what you've been looking for, right?
