It’s no new news that Polyphia‘s Tim Henson and Scott LePage were in the works with Ibanez to create their own signature guitars, but now the axes have landed! Tim’s signature THBB10 and Scott’s signature SLM10 have hit the shelves, and below is a bit about each guitar.
“Realizing the signature guitar of Polyphia’s Tim Henson called for an instrument that blends traditional flair with modern tones and would excel in complex, technically-driven music. The black and gold color scheme of the THBB10 captures a truly classic appearance, while the Acrylic/Abalone inlays infuse an element of modern design. An American Basswood body is paired with a Roasted Maple neck and equipped with Tim’s signature DiMarzio® Notorious™ pickups. While mainly designed with the intricacies of Polyphia’s notable sound in mind, the voice of this guitar is also perfectly suited for Blues, Rock, and a variety of other genres.”
“Scott LePage’s SLM10 is a decidedly more modern looking axe. The contemporary style comes from a Flame Maple top in a Transparent Red Matte finish, gold hardware, gold pole pieces and a black pickguard to tie everything together. The guitar features DiMarzio® True Velvet™ single coils and Scott’s signature DiMarzio® INGO™ humbucker. This electronics, combined with an American Basswood body and Roasted Maple neck, offers the full selection of sounds Scott needs to help him craft his share of Polyphia’s sonically distinctive brand of Rock.”
