Top-shelf components and expert craftsmanship from Ibanez Japan

The Pat Metheny PM200 is built in Japan, where it all began for Ibanez. Their top luthiers put in the care and detail that has made their hollowbodies some of the most popular jazz guitars in the industry. Using choice tonewoods like a maple body, mahogany neck, and ebony fretboard, the Pat Metheny PM200 has everything you'd expect from a first-class instrument.

Fast and smooth neck, with Prestige fret-edge treatment

The mahogany neck on the Pat Metheny PM200 has Pat's signature neck profile, designed to give you effortless access to the entire fretboard. For even smoother playability, the PM200 has received Ibanez's Prestige fret-end treatment. This essentially rounds off the edges of the frets, making the bound ebony fretboard feel even more fluid.

Another Great Experience with Sweetwater

Over the past three years I have built up such a rapport with my sales consultant at Sweetwater that our communication seems almost telepathic. I can honestly say I have ever had a bad experience with Sweetwater Guitars as a result of his efforts. Courteous, polite, responsive, knowledgeable...the list of superlatives goes on with Sweetwater's sales consultants and support staff. Now the guitar...the best part about Sweetwater, is that what you see is what you get. And if the guitar arrives at your home and you don't like it, they will do everything humanly possible to make it right, including getting you a new axe if the one you bought just doesn't feel right, no matter how well it fits your eye. Speaking of which, the PM 200NT is a guitar that I have had my eye on for a couple of years now (since arriving on the market). I count Gibsons, Taylors, and Martins in my collection, so the bar is pretty high for the Japanese made Ibanez. My concerns were unfounded. The hollow body arrived at my house fedex less than a week after I purchased it and played like like a dream right out of the box; that is six guitars and counting from Sweetwater where I have been completely satisfied with my purchase! In closing, the Ibanez PM200NT is a jazz guitarist's dream - PM needs no introduction and his influence is evident in several nuances of this guitar.I think it is a collectible guitar right out of the box. As a side note, when I take my guitars to my Luthier for set up, he always knows which ones I bought from Sweetwater - they often require little or no set up changes. That speaks very highly of their 55 step review process before shipment. Kudos again Sweetwater!!!

Ibanez PM200

Refined simplicity at a great price point. Got mine from Sweet. Master Luthiers at Ibanez Japan deliver the goods with this PM series jazz box. Areas of special interest include: D'Aquisto inspired ebony tailpiece - Display grain maple top - Intelligent located pick-up - World Class Prestige neck appointments: frets dressed to absolute fluid smoothness - Nano touch string setup -Tasteful inlays with lots of fiery abalone - Beautiful wide footprint head stock - And how about the "art gallery vibe" precision Gotoh 510 tuners ! Strung with flats: Plug it in for a warm, fat dry sound - Joy to play acoustically. Medium duty hard-shell case with beefy leather handle. Summery: A modern, understated arch - top with a touch of Zen swagger - This guitar has solid collectable value.
