Ibanez TAM100 Tosin Abasi Signature 8-string Solidbody Electric Guitar at a Glance:
  • Free rein for exploration
  • Ibanez wrote the book on production 8-string guitars
  • The revolution continues
Free rein for exploration

8-string guitars are a breed apart, and can bring an otherworldly intensity to your music. To prove the point, check out Animals As Leaders to hear dueling Ibanez 8-strings, as majestically wielded by Tosin Abasi and Javier Reyes. The Ibanez TAM100 Tosin Abasi Signature is factory tuned to Tosin's preferred standard tuning plus 7th and 8th strings tuned to B and E, respectively. Of course, there are quite a few ways to tune an 8-string guitar - which gives you free rein for exploration. Exciting, isn't it?

Ibanez wrote the book on production 8-string guitars

Ibanez pretty much wrote the book on production 7- and 8-string electric guitars, giving players slender, fast necks that don't feel like baseball bats, pickups that scream, and bridges that can handle low tunings without buzzing. The TAM100 Tosin Abasi Signature sports an ideal 27" scale that keeps your low strings nicely tempered and tight-sounding, and the rest of the instrument feeling and sounding like, well, a guitar. Ibanez's 8-string design and construction techniques - including a titanium-reinforced 5-piece neck and the FX Edge III-8 double-locking fixed bridge - contribute to the instrument's unique, authoritative, eminently musical voice. And then there's the trio of tone-monsters: DiMarzio Ionizer8 pickups in a spectacularly effective HSH config. You stir this potent elixer with a 5-way blade and a neck/bridge coil-tap switch to deploy everything from spanky cleans to blistering high-gain shred. Immensely versatile.

The revolution continues

The revolution started in 1990, when Ibanez collaborated with Steve Vai on the first 7-string Universe, which established Ibanez as a leader in electric 7-string guitars. In the ensuing years, the instrument's staggering possibilities began to unfold as a new generation of alternative shredders pushed the musical envelope. As Ibanez 7-strings were being embraced by many rock and metal musicians, Ibanez introduced the groundbreaking 8-string guitar, which quickly became standard equipment for adventurous artists such as Meshuggah and instrumental prodigy Tosin Abasi of Animals As Leaders. Pick up a TAM100 Tosin Abasi Signature 8-string, and go break some musical barriers.
