New Ibanez KIKOSP2 signature guitar of Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro of the metal bands Angra and Megadeth. The KIKOSP2 is a follow-up model to the KIKOSP introduced in 2015 and is a mass-market version of Loureiro’s other signature guitars, the Prestige-level KIKO100 and the Premium-level KIKO10P…

The Ibanez KIKOSP2 is based on the S series but has a thicker, Poplar body with a special deep cut lower horn and a Flamed Maple Art Grain top. It has Ibanez Infinity R pickups in an HSH configuration. The Maple neck has a 24-fret Rosewood fretboard with offset dot position markers and a special KIKO Brazilian native inlay at the 12th fret. The KIKOSP2 differs to the KIKOSP because it has a double locking tremolo instead of a standard synchronized tremolo design and it comes in the new Transparent Red Burst burst finish. This model is available only in select markets, including Loureiro’s native Brazil.

“I am very happy to be a part of the Ibanez family! There is a mix of many different musical influences in my playing style, so I need my guitars from Ibanez to be well-rounded in order to cover everything I want to do on the guitar. Ibanez and I worked for a long time on these models, going over many different neck shapes and body shapes before deciding on what works best for me as a player, and I feel that we have nailed it with the KIKO models. I’m really happy and excited about my new signature Ibanez KIKO models, and I hope that you are excited too!”
