      Ready to destroy the stage with killer looks, super slim neck, chrome hardware and DiMarzio pickups.

      Made of mahogany, just like the classics, the DT520 Destroyer's iconic body style has attracted many artists. Ibanez's biggest leap forward will continue to be appreciated by today's player: namely the mahogany slim neck grip and set-in neck that offer ultra-smooth playablity. No matter what the setting, the DiMarzio Air Norton pack this axe with a rich tonal palette. Gorgeous old school pearl/abalone block inlays make for a path back to one of rock's most dynamic chapters. The original Ibanez Tight-Tune bridge provides improved transfer of string vibration and better tuning stability.

      Since it was originally introduced in 1975, the Destroyer has become an icon of that era's chapter in rock n' roll history. Over the years it has undergone many incarnations and the perennial classic returns once again. The body and neck of both guitars are made of a tight Mahogany for maximum resonance. The bound rosewood fingerboard is adorned with Jumbo frets. The Destroyer also features Sure Grip III control knobs for no-slip control. It's not called the Destroyer for nothing.

        Comments about Ibanez DT520 Destroyer Series Electric Guitar:

        I can't say enough about this guitar. It is my second Destroyer & since it arrived I have not been using my other guitars for jamming or recording. It sounds great, aggressive yet fluid. Fun to play. I like to stand when I record and sometimes sit and it is comfortable both ways. The guitars looks are misleading because it is very light but the body construction somehow still sounds great just like my other prior version I own which has the Ibanez pickups in it. This guitar can get a little more aggressive which I love for Heavy Metal playing. Very cool looking and well balanced looks and playing wise. One thing I would like to note is I am very pleased with the follow up E-mail I received checking on how I liked my purchase and even got a response to my e-mail back. Musicians Friend is where I have bought guitars in the past & they have always taken very good care of any issues. I will continue to buy from them. The guitar arrived in perfect condition and ready to ROCK.
