Ibanez S61AL Axion Label, Black Mirage Gradation

The Ibanez S61AL Axion Label is a slim double cutaway guitar with curvy lines and a fast playing neck.

However, the reverse headstock, arched top and black mirage gradation finish certainly provide a modern aesthetic as well. The body of the Ibanez S61AL is made from Nyatoh which is often used as cost effective substitute for mahogany and it has a warm tone with full lower midrange. The flame maple cap adds a little bit of brightness and looks killer with the black mirage gradation finish.
