Ibanez Announces Tim Henson’s New TOD10N Signature Acoustic/Electric
The TOD10N is Tim’s newest signature instrument and a vast departure from his original AZ-based guitar.
Set for release in 2023, Ibanez has officially announced its latest collaboration with modern guitar Phenom, Tim Henson. The TOD10N is Tim’s newest signature instrument and a vast departure from his original AZ-based guitar. This specialized acoustic/electric immediately drew interest and attention when it appeared on Tim’s social media channels and Polyphia’s music video for their song, Playing God.
Tim’s inspiration for this guitar came from a previous Ibanez design called the SC500N. This older model was unique in that it was a solid body electric, but it utilized nylon strings paired with a Piezo pickup system. While the TOD10N certainly drew inspiration from that model, the specifications are quite different and it’s very much its own creation.
The body shape is based on the FR series but is hollow in its construction. The design also incorporates a discrete sound hole located on the upper bout, directed towards the player. This preserves the clean, modern appearance of the guitar, while also providing clear and accurate acoustic tone. Fan Bracing is another critical element of the TOD10N. A bracing style generally found on classical guitars, it was incorporated to help facilitate and enhance the “Nuevo Flamenco” style Tim and Polyphia have been exploring as of late. Other notable features include a solid Sitka Spruce top, Walnut fretboard, Fishman® Sonicore pickup, and the “Tree of Death” inlay, designed by Tim. The TOD10N will be hitting stores sometime in Q1 of 2023.
