Kiko Loureiro Demos His New Signature Ibanez

Back in November we brought you the announcement that one half of Angra’s tall, dark and handsome guitar tag team was getting his own Ibanez signature guitar, in two versions (Premium and Prestige) based on the S series. Well, just last week Ibanez posted a demo featuring the man himself playing and discussing the Premium version (why not both, we may never know) and it looks and sounds pretty dang good. Of course, this guy can make anything sound amazing, but isn’t that ever the rub?

Also included below is a video with some shots of Kiko playing one live (with both Tarja Turunen and Fabio Lione).

As Editor-in-Chief of Gear Gods, I've been feeding your sick instrument fetishism and trying unsuccessfully to hide my own since 2013. I studied music on both coasts (Berklee and SSU) and now I'm just trying to put my degree to some use. That's a music degree, not an English one. I'm sure you noticed.
