The Ibanez VBT700 or V-Blade guitar is a flying V guitar model, introduced in 2007 as part of the Ibanez X series. Originally, the design came from a custom v-shaped guitar that was made for Dragonforce guitarist Sam Totman. Despite some rumors this was not an official signature series but rather a "spin-off" of the original custom design. Totman did get his own signature series in 2008 based on the Iceman, the STM. The VBT700 was the only V-Blade model that was mass produced to the public and was only available in 2007. It has since been discontinued.
Features include a neck through body construction, rosewood fingerboard with sharktooth inlays, a hard-tail bridge with string-through body, and two DiMarzio humbucking pickups. Guitars with similar construction and specifications but different body shape are the XPT700FX and DTT700.
