The latest Ibanez FRH10N is a new budget version of Tim Henson’s nylon-string model released last October. Sporting the same body shape and sound hole on the upper bout, but minus the Tree of Death inlays.

This latest nylon-strung FRH10N acoustic model from Ibanez looks very much like the Polpyhia guitarist’s latest signature model. Except it comes in two different finishes Natural Flat and Brown Sunburst Flat.  The slim-bodied acoustic guitar construction has a solid Sitka spruce top with Sapele back and sides.

It shares the same side-mounted soundhole and has a Nyatoh C-shape profile neck and a walnut fretboard fitted with 22 frets and simple dot inlays.  This model also features a walnut bridge, a bone nut and a set of gold classical tuners.

Instead of the Fishman Sonicore system, the FRH10N comes fitted with Ibanez’s proprietary T-Bar Undersaddle pickup. This system is powered by two CR2032 batteries, whereas the TOD10N is charged by a standard 9V battery.

The somewhat simpler take on this design comes in at around $200 cheaper than the Tim Henson TOD10N signature model. Making it a nice option for any musicians that like this style of guitar, but aren’t after a signature model and the upcharge that goes with an artist association.

    The Ibanez FRH10N is a welcome addition, it has some of the features and specs that I like from the TOD10N, but with a lower price tag and without the “Tree of Death” on the fret board. The Tree of Death on the fret board of the signature model was a no-go for me.

      I reckon it is a good move to offer these without all the extra signature model aesthetics. Overall, they look like they could be decent guitars. I’m looking forward to hearing some demos of them.

    I thought 699 was already quite budget. These look nice but I would chose the Henson due to the controls. I do wonder what the exact sonic differences of the different pickups are.

      I’m looking forward to hearing some comparisons between the two models. Pretty sure something will pop up on YouTube soon.
