Ibanez Destoryer Reissues... Old reviews on a classic axe.

I'm dusting off some old friends/axes for the new Killing Floor songs... I can't get away from my usual sound of "Twang n' Grit" that I always lust for but will be adding more of a "Thump n' Roar" for the next CD. Again old reviews but very worth reposting and mentioning axes from Ibanez. ~JCM

Ibanez DT420

July 21, 2002

Ibanez is reissuing the a limited number of the Ibanez Destroyer, a guitar favorite of 80's Heavy Metal rock. "We brought out a scaled down version of the Destroyer, the DTX120, at the 2000 Summer NAMM Show," said Jon Romanowski, the National Sales Manager of Ibanez (as well as an unashamed Destroyer devote').

"That guitar has been a great seller, but it whetted everyone's appetite for the full monty, so to speak. So here it is, in the original size and specs and from the original factory where most of the first Destroyers were created. The good news is the price is unbelievable close to the original 80's price. The bad news is we don't have a whole lot of them and I don't know what the future will bring.
