Built to the exact specifications of Brazilian-born fretboard mestre Lari Basilio, the Ibanez LB1 is a versatile instrument that's ready to burn. This T-style axe's Seymour Duncan Lari Basilio signature pickups tackle smokey blues licks and high-octane runs with uniform ease, while its dyna-MIX9 switching system offers a never-ending plentitude of tones. The LB1's S-Tech roasted maple neck and compound-radius fingerboard offer enough high-performance playability to satisfy every player — even a battle-tested G4 Experience alum like Lari. Armed with a Gotoh T1702 tremolo for expressive pitch bends and ultra-stable dive-bombs, the LB1 also includes rock-solid Gotoh Magnum Lock tuners, a bone nut, and luminescent side dots.
- Oval C S-TECH WOOD Roasted Birdseye Maple neck
The S-TECH special roasted treatment increases the wood's stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes. The neck is sealed with an oil finish which helps make it feel similar to a well-played guitar neck.
- Gotoh® Magnum Lock w/H.A.P. machine heads
GOTOH® MAGNUM LOCK® machine heads have an established reputation for tuning stability. Its H. A. P® (Height Adjustable Post). system allows for the adjustment of string posts for the appropriate tension of each string.
- S-TECH WOOD Roasted Birdseye Maple fretboard
The S-TECH special roasted treatment provides a superior attack, a well-balanced tone and a rich sustain. In order to achieve supreme neck grip comfort, the fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve.
- Compound Radius Fretboard (228mm to 305mm)
Offering the best of both worlds, the digitized compound radius fretboard is built to enhance both smooth chording and lead work in the upper register.
- Seymour Duncan® Lari Basilio S-S-H pickups
Lari’s signature set of pickups by Seymour Duncan feature 3 pickups that are each unique to each other, but also combine to make the perfect combo. The neck pickup is a mix of Alnico 5 and Alnico 4 magnets that combine for vintage tone with a lot of body and presence, while the middle pickup is a special mix of Alnico 5 and Alnico 2 magnets to help create more tonal options, as well as very unique look. Lari’s bridge position humbucker features Alnico 5 magnets and is voiced to be versatile and well balanced, focusing on attack and clarity over a wide range of tones from clean to high gain. For the type of player that Lari strives to be, having a versatile tone is essential, and these pickups always deliver.
- Gotoh® T1702B tremolo
The T1702B tremolo bridge provides quick response and improved articulation. The 10.5mm string spacing allows for easy picking across strings and its snap-in construction makes it easy to load a tremolo arm. The tremolo block and saddles are made of brass, facilitating better overall resonance.
- Dyna-MIX9 switching system with Alter Switch
The dyna-MIX 9 offers nine sound variations and can switch between humbucker and single coil modes with just a flick of the mini switch. One mode even simulates a humbucking sound from the combination of two single coil pickups.
- Luminlay side dot inlays
The Luminlay side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
