The Jet King is a nice guitar for surf and retro rock. It's also a nice tone machine for experimental rock, since the coil taps alter the dynamics of the pick ups. It is not overly heavy, the sunburst model I own has a two piece body. The body is a thick two inches and string through.The action would be rated at medium. The way in which the bridge is designed, if the action were desired lower, then the neck would need shimmed slightly with paper or a triangle pick. The neck is very playable and the markers are inlayed, rather than painted on. I've always suggested that the bridge should be moreso in the shape of a "crown". Ibanez has finaly started making the guitar in bright colors and even added a tremelo! Hope they do the crown bridge and EMG'S? The guitar is made in Indonesia. Jimi Hendrix played an early model Ibanez as everyone knows. This retro model guitar has potential. In the future a maple neck without rosewood, EMG'S, atremelo and a yellow body with black pick guard would elevate its status. What about a Jet QeenBee? The Jet king series is just poorly marketed on an international scale, compared to the RG series.
I've had this guitar for about nine years, and I love it. I can make it sound just like my Strat, almost exactly like my Les Paul. It is easily one of my favorite guitars, I have it in the original brown sunburst with 2 Super 58 pickups that sound great. The only problem WAS that the strings kept breaking, but I solved that by putting some graphite under the strings in the nut slot.
I played my friend's one of these, and at first I thought it sounded a tad thin. But then, when I turned off the coil tap, I got this really rich, full sound. Not the best, not really able to stand up to my lp studio (gibson, not epi), but it sounds great for a backup guitar. Another thing. The coil tap lowers the volume when using the single coil feature. But other than that, really nice guitar.
The Ibanez Jet King II is a really fantastic all-around guitar. I play a little bit of everything, and this guitar really gets me there. The Super 58s really sound great: this is the warmest electric guitar I've ever heard. The coil taps really help to add variety to the sound.On the downside, it's a little heavy, but it's not a big deal, you only notice when you play something like a strat or an SG right after or before. The cable jack on mine needed to be repaired, hence the deduction of one quality point.Despite all that, I'm very impressed with this guitar. It's a strat, tele, Les Paul, and Jazzmaster all rolled into one. Can't beat the value at this price. Highly recommended.
My Jet King came perfectly set-up! Got Shaller tuners and the finest cable socket, and it is as good as any bolt on neck guitar made. Perfect for slide. Nice neck. Pickups are quiet, but turn it up. If I get that good I will buy the superest splittable pickups made at the shop in North Hollywood my lead player uses.MEAN TIME PRACTICE, AND BUILD GROUPIES. COOL AXE.
I have a friend who owns this guitar and i was down on him getting it, it looks like a retro junk model, i picked it up and started to play it though and noticed its somewhere between a fender strat and a les paul by feel, action is perfect, tone very crisp and bright coil splits are amazingly bright and add punch, i still say it looks like crap but it can hang with the rg series well even when it comes to speed (i use a rg350).
Jimi Hendrix once played and Ibanez Rhythm Maker, this is a neo-repoduction of that.It posesses ACH2 bridge pickups, and a super 58 neck pickup. With coil taps acessed through the switches you see benneath the neck pup. It also features a string through body for added sustain.So far, in the little time I've owned it, it has only produced great tone and done it's job.I imagine this amazing axe will hit mainstream sucess sometime in the future.With a string through body
I got this guitar for 4 months now... It's stylish and equiped with coil split switch.But I am truly dissapointed at its sound. It's so muffled, even the coil split doesn't help a bit to bring a brighter tone. If you are using a lot of distortion then it might be ok for you. Another problem with this guitar is, its really heavy, the mahogany body is thicker than most strat style guitars. I tend to sit down when I grab it.
