The KIKO10BP is based on the S series although it has a thicker body with a flat back and special relief on the lower horn in the rear. The body is alder with a flamed maple top. The output is a tilt-positioned jack on the side of the guitar rather than on the face like a typical S series guitar.
It has custom DiMarzio pickups with a pair of humbuckers with coil-split functionality flanking a single-coil. The custom neck has a rounder profile than the traditional Ibanez Wizard profile with with titanium reinforcing rods and a 24-fret rosewood fingerboard. A special abalone inlay at the 12th fret is inspired by native Brazilian designs. The bridge is an Edge Zero II double locking tremolo.
The KIKO10BP is offered as a more affordable version of the Japanese made KIKO100. The KIKO10P is a nearly identical model with cosmo black hardware and a different finish which has been offered since 2014.
