An interesting addition by Ibanez this season- a guitar/ukulele hybrid. This one's made for the traveling bandit; it's merely 17" in scale length. There is no other way of handling it than the ukulele way, it's even made to be strapped on as such. Let's hope that it features a truss rod as an indication of long term durability. The idea isn't new though- Yamaha's been there.
