Ibanez TQM2 Tom Quayle Signature Flamed Maple Top

Rich, Resonant Tones From Premium Woods

The foundation for the TQM2’s versatile voice begins with its expertly chosen tonewood combination. A gorgeous flame maple top graces the alder body, imparting shimmering highs and a strong midrange punch. Alder’s balanced tone and lively resonance let the maple sing, while maintaining clarity and beefing up the lower mids. Regardless of whether you’re coaxing nuanced jazz lines or blazing fluid fusion legato licks in the style of its namesake, this signature Tom Quayle electric delivers a focused, singing quality that cuts through any mix.

Ibanez TQM2 Tom Quayle Signature S-TECH Roasted Maple Neck

Vintage-Inspired Playability for Modern Musicians

From the very first note, the Ibanez TQM2 feels like a physical extension of your musical mind, due in no small part to its exceptionally playable construction. The S-TECH roasted maple neck boasts outstanding stability and moisture resistance, while the oil finish evokes a familiar “played-in” texture. The 22-fret rosewood fingerboard is smooth and even under your fingers, with jumbo stainless steel frets offering velvety, precise bending. This Ibanez also receives the specialized Prestige fret-edge treatment, ensuring effortless articulation up and down the neck.

Ibanez TQM2 Tom Quayle Signature Pickups

Signature Pickups Dial in Tom Quayle’s Sound

To accurately capture Quayle’s expressive voice, the TQM2 features a trio of meticulously calibrated Ibanez TQM pickups. Laid out in an HSS configuration, the TQM-S single coils and TQM-H humbucker are engineered to precisely translate every inflection and playing nuance with organic clarity. Ibanez’s innovative dyna-MIX9 wiring provides nine distinct pickup combinations at your fingertips. Switch between single-coil and humbucker modes, or blend both for something fresh—all without losing the authentic sound Quayle demands.
