Ibanez Kiko Loureiro KIKO100 Prestige - Transparent Ruby Red
Special Order

Shred Like Kiko!

Kiko Loureiro is a killer guitarist. Whether he's playing metal or jazz fusion, Kiko's always spot on with his tone and technique, and his signature Ibanez solidbody electrics are spec'd to facilitate that level of uncompromised performance. The KIKO100 gives you a comfortable alder S body with a gorgeous flame maple top, and a custom-profile Prestige neck with rosewood fingerboard. The 'board is scalloped from the 19th-24th frets for easier high note bending and tapping. DiMarzio Kiko Original pickups in an HSH configuration deliver a universe of tone, while an Edge vibrato serves up silky whammy action.

Ibanez Kiko Loureiro Signature KIKO100 at a Glance:
  • Step up to the top-of-the-line S Prestige Series
  • DiMarzio KIKO original Pickups are sweet and responsive
  • Innovative pickup switching gives you ten different coil combinations
Step up to the top-of-the-line S Prestige Series

Ibanez's S Prestige Series is filled with top instruments - all featuring the famous S body style, with excellent components through and through. With the Kiko Loureiro Signature KIKO100, you get a well-balanced, resonant alder body with an eye-popping plus a lightning-fast Kiko-profile Prestige neck with a rosewood fingerboard. It's a time-tested recipe for hard-hitting rock/metal/fusion tone and playability. Add to that the unique scalloping between the 19th and 24th frets, and you've got effortless tapfest possibilities.

DiMarzio KIKO original Pickups are sweet and responsive

From metal to jazz fusion, Kiko Loureiro nails it. His signature DiMarzio Kiko Original pickups (in an HSH configuration) are designed to do it all. The neck and bridge humbuckers have medium output and a balanced sound - similar to the PAF Pro, but with a bit more gain. The single-coil in the middle position is warmer sounding and more higher gain than a typical vintage single-coil, and it balances beautifully with the neck and bridge pickups. Sweet and responsive, this pickup combo is da bomb.

Innovative pickup switching gives you ten different coil combinations

You mix this heady HSH tonefest with a five-way blade, but here's where it gets real interesting: the recessed volume pot is a push-pull affair that gives you access to a staggering range of ten humbucking, single-coil, and coil combos. Tasty! The guitarists here at Sweetwater are quite enthused about these electronics. You will be, too.

Ibanez Kiko Loureiro Signature KIKO100 Features:
  • Alder body, flame maple top; fast KIKO100 Prestige neck
  • Rosewood fingerboard with jumbo frets and Prestige fret edge treatment
  • Kiko's custom scalloped fingerboard on 19th-24th frets makes for easier high note bending and tapping

Great tone, incredible action and build.

As with any Ibanez Prestige, the quality finish and fretwork is amazing. Switching options on this guitar are superb and give some strat type tones in the 2 and 4 positions. Flawless scratch free glitch free electronics and jacks, the best possibly quality in every component and material. Pickups are medium hot, not honky, very balanced. Can do true metal and shred but still sound incredibly good clean, without being too dark. Beautiful black chrome hardware, incredible flame top. Gotoh tuners overkill on a locking trem, but they are the best. Finest production guitar I have ever owned, better and more consistent then many customs I have had built. Of course an entirely different beast than a Gibson or Fender. Laminated necks on these are extremely stable, don't require frequent truss rod adjustments, less sensitive to humidity changes, and less likely to curve over time. Alder body, maple top, rosewood board work well in the tone department as well. The scalloped fret board on the high frets makes it easier to dig into high bends. Was torn between this and some other Prestige models with two pickups, glad I made this choice for the versatile tones and the pickups are just right for me. Also love the S type neck joint, comfortable and smooth with deep cutouts - can hit all of the high frets with comfort and ease. Also surprisingly light weight for a floyd trem guitar.
