Namm 2021 Ibanez Lari Basilio Signature Guitar
At the end of 2020, Lari signed on to the prestigious Ibanez roster, and now has her very own signature guitar, the LB1. With a ton of unique features, it’s based on the new AZs Series, and has an S-Tech Roasted Maple Neck and S-Tech Rpasted birds eye maple fingerboard, dynasty-MIX 9 switching system, Gotch T1702B bridge, compound 9”-12” fingerboard radius, and custom designed Seymour Duncan pickups.
We’re been following Lari’s career for a while now, and definitely feel she’s a player to keep an eye on. She’s extremely melodic, has incredible tone and her love for playing shines in her live performance… and let’s face it, she writes cool stuff. Her partnership with Ibanez comes at no surprise, and her signature guitar is well deserved. If you’re not familiar with Lari, we recommend giving her a search, there’s a ton of great videos out there.
Lari was the first female guitarist to be a part of the G4 Experience, invited by Joe Satriani in 2019. She won the instrumental actagory at the Samsung E-Restival in 2014 and impressed a crowd of 15,000 alongside Keb’ Mo’ and Quinn Sullivan in Brasil. Lari has opened for guitar clinics by Paul Gilbert and Andy Timmons and appeared at the Malibu Guitar Festival in 2017.
