KIKO100_RRB_00_01_CU_Body_TopNow this is cool. Available in made-in-Japan (KIKO100) and Premium (KIKO10P) versions, Ibanez presents a pair of Kiko Loureiro signature models. Each features a unique scoop cutaway at the back of the body on the treble side, original Edge (KIKO100) or Edge-Zero II (KIKO10P) tremolos, Alder bodies with flamed Maple tops, recessed control knobs, tilt-in jacks, and DiMarzio KIKO original pickups.
