Part of Ibanez’s boundary-pushing Quest series, the QX527PB vaunts a headless design built from the ground up to maximize tone, performance, and playing comfort.

Jescar EVO gold frets round out the QX527PB’s generous features. If you’ve been hunting for the perfect headless electric guitar — or even if you’re considering your first headless instrument — the Ibanez QX527PB is guaranteed to unlock unlimited creative possibilities.

Parallel Wizard neck makes complex playing techniques easier

The QX527PB was built for high-level, technical playing styles, evidenced by its Parallel Wizard neck. Crafted from maple and bubinga, this ultra-stable 5-piece neck is 0.75 inches thick throughout its entire length, offering amazing playability for players who prefer a higher playing position. The QX527PB’s heat-treated bird’s-eye maple fingerboard not only turns heads, but its frets are also equally slanted at an 8-degree angle for easy execution of tapping, fingerstyle, bass-inspired slapping, and other intricate fretboard maneuvers. This headless 7-string electric guitar also includes Jescar EVO gold frets, which ensure long-lasting durability and effortless note bending. Guitarists have found the QX527PB to be incredibly versatile — it offers a zero-drag playing experience for technical metal, jazz-rock fusion, and any experimental genre you throw at it. If your personal style involves complex playing techniques, the QX527PB will permit you to play cleaner and faster than you ever thought possible.

Made-to-measure pickups yield an endless array of tones

Designed especially for headless guitars, the Ibanez QX527PB’s Q58-7 humbuckers churn out divine sonic textures with astonishing levels of articulation and definition — a must-have for elaborate riffing and intricate, rapid-fire leads. The tonal balance of these pickups is unprecedented throughout the instrument’s entire range. Plug into your favorite amp, and you’ll experience muscular lows that are completely devoid of muddiness and mix-piercing highs that eschew harshness for a sublime-sounding clarity that enables every note within a chord structure to be heard. These pickups exhibit little self-noise, even in high-gain applications, and they play nice with both digital and analog effects. The QX527PB incudes dyna-MIX10 switching, which provides 10 different pickup combinations via an Alter Switch and 5-way lever switch. No matter the genre, the QX527PB can achieve the sound you’re hearing in your head.

State-of-the-art hardware that can withstand aggressive playing styles

The QX527PB is teeming with cutting-edge, near-bulletproof hardware. Its custom string lock boast a straightforward one-piece design that’s not only highly durable, but it also requires little maintenance. String changes are a breeze, and because the QX527PB doesn’t require a proprietary set of strings, you can use whatever time-tested gauge and brand you’d like. You’ll also appreciate the Mono Tune bridge. This expertly crafted bridge facilitates a wide intonation range, which makes down tuning a piece of cake. This headless extended-range guitar’s Mono Tune bridge is also a cinch to adjust, and its streamlined saddle design lends a natural, organic character to every note you play.
