The Kiko Loureiro series is a signature line of solid body electric guitar models offered by Ibanez. It is the signature guitar series of Brazilian guitarist Kiko Loureiro. Loureiro is known for is work with the metal bands Angra and Megadeth.
The guitars in the series are based on the S series, but have thicker profile which is a bit like the SA series body. The guitars are designed with versatility in mind as Loureiro plays a wide range of styles and produces an array of varying tones. As of 2017 the line consists of four models. The line includes models at a wide range of price points which are built in Japan, Indonesia and China.
The first Kiko Loureiro model offered was the KIKO100. It is based on Loureiro's custom Ibanez which he plays on stage. It has an alder body with a flamed maple top and a pair of custom DiMarzio KIKO humbucking pickups flanking a custom single coil. The humbuckers can be coil-tapped to offer single coil type sounds. The bridge is an original Edge double locking tremolo. The KIKO100 was produced in Japan to Prestige-level standards until being discontinued after 2017 (more...)
