Just starting Jazz guitar or looking to add a lower cost Jazz model to your
collection? Ibanez has a brand new, and surprisingly affordable, Pat Metheny
signature model on offer, the PM35 NT. Giorgio Serci puts it through its paces.
Pat Metheny really needs little introduction.
The formidable American Jazz guitarist/
composer has been a signature artist for the
Ibanez guitar company since 1996 and has
been actively involved in the design of the
highly regarded, Japanese-made, PM 120.
But the PM 120 is an expensive instrument,
probably beyond the range of most beginners
or those who would like to add a hollow
bodied Jazz guitar to their collection,
without spending a small fortune. To satisfy
that market, Ibanez has just launched the
PM35 NT model, which is considerably
less expensive and should appeal to a lot
of iGuitar readers who are looking for an
affordable Jazz guitar with a great pedigree.
The first thing to note is that this guitar
comes with a robust case - and you need to
bear that in mind when comparing it with
other guitars which might come without a
case. It has a beautiful natural look, with
contrasting wood colours from the rosewood
headstock, fretboard, bridge and volume and
tone knobs, to the maple back, top and sides.
Its body size is what you would expect from
a Jazz guitar, however, it is slimmer for better
comfort, projection and feedback rejection.

iGuitar Magazine Issue 11
The rosewood headstock and fingerboard are
bound and feature abalone block inlay and
Ibanez logo and the truss rod cover features
a carved custom logo. This is another feature
this guitar has in common with the iconic
Gibson L5 Custom.
Its narrow neck (43mm at nut and 57 at last
fret) and the hand-rolled fret design to Pat
Metheny’s exact specification makes this an
easy guitar to play, particularly for soloing
and playing single-note melodies. This is
certainly not a coincidence, but the result of
a fruitful collaboration with Metheny, who
once claimed: “I have possibly spent more
time playing guitar than anybody else on
the planet”… Ergonomic characteristics of
his guitars are key and a focal point when
contributing in the design of his signature
models. This resonated to me as I was
playing this PM35, which came from the
factory with a very good set-up. In addition
to that, I managed to tune it up in an
instant, straight from its case, thanks to its
accurate mother of pearl capped tuning pegs.
The 5-piece set neck on the Ibanez is made
of mahogany and walnut and meets its body
in a very harmonious manner.
