Ibanez ORM1 If it’s style and comfort that you’re looking for, the Ibanez ORM1 is exactly what you need. Inspired by notable guitarist and songwriter Omar Rodriguez-Lopez, the ORM1 just stands out from a crowd, and that is just from its appearance alone. This left-handed model is available in a beautiful arctic white finish with deep red pearloid pickguard, black headstock and chrome hardware. The ACH blade humbucking bridge pickup, adjustable Gibraltar III Bridge, lower string tension for easier fret-work and a single volume control knob make the ORM1 a great choice for beginners who are after an entry-level instrument with a bit more “flair” than the generic starter guitars. White pearloid block inlays on a contrasting rosewood fretboard simply add to this guitars already irresistible looks, and at the incredible price of £275 this choice certainly shouldn’t break the bank.
