Ibanez is consistently on the cutting-edge, eager to provide prog. metal and metalcore musicians with 6-, 7-, 8- and even 9-string instruments designed to optimize the genres power and extreme sonic palate. Recently, it seems they found a kindred spirit in this mission in UK-based Bare Knuckle Pickups.
Founded in 2003, Bare Knuckle has quickly amassed a glowing reputation for building 100% handmade pickups from the finest, traditionally authentic materials for the discriminating guitarist. As certain models caught the attention of metal players for their tight, articulate sound, it did not go unnoticed by the Ibanez luthiers and so a new partnership began and the Uppercut Series was born.
The S6UCDM features a contoured mahogany body with an exotic Imbuia top. Imbuia, an extremely difficult wood to obtain, is prized for its superior clarity and note separation, and adds a new flavor to the iconic Prestige Uppercut S Series. The ultra-thin, 5-piece maple/walnut, Super Wizard High Performance neck ensures rock-solid stability with the lightning speed that only a Prestige neck can deliver.
A pair of Bare Knuckle Nailbomb pickups designed to deliver accelerated bass response for tracking high-speed staccato riffing, with increased focus in the mids, and superb high-end articulation. The Ibanez original Lo-Pro Edge bridge is designed for superior tuning stability, playing comfort, and optimum sustain. Hardshell case included.

Comments about Ibanez S Prestige Uppercut Series S6UC Electric Guitar:
Bottom line, great guitar. Much more than a 'metal' guitar, many many tones available. Build quality was 11/10, finish is really nice. My only con is not with the axe but with Guitar Centers 'no haggling' policy. They do have discounts, but it's not based on your repoire with the agent, or how much you are spending, it has to do with any discounts they are currently running... I got a decent price on this b/c I traded in some stuff but come on GC, mom and pop places would play ball with me for a 2500 axe. Only reason I bought from you was those dealers were not Ibanez dealers and it would have taken longer to get ahold of this model
