It’s fair to say that one of the fiercest player/guitar brand partnerships of the current era belongs to Tim Henson and Ibanez. Together, they’ve designed and released three highly popular signature guitars, including the flagship THBB10 electric guitar and recent TOD10.

Sandwiched between those two is the TOD10N – a nylon-string model that revived a quirky retro Ibanez design and that featured heavily across Polyphia’s newest album, Remember That You Will Die.
