TOD10 Polyphia is a primarily instrumental progressive rock band based in Plano, Texas. By weaving technical and virtuosic guitar instrumentations together with hip-hop, jazz and R&B-influenced production and grooves, Polyphia has created a truly unique and original sound.
Ibanez has worked closely with Tim Henson, one half of the dynamic guitar duo of Polyphia, for many years, and together have developed a signature model, the TOD. The guitar is highly inspired by the Ibanez AZ model, and it also features some of Tim’s personal touches to make it perfectly designed for his versatile playing style.
The TOD’s most striking aesthetic feature may be the fingerboard inlay design, which Tim has dubbed as the “Tree of Death”. The name and the design are both nods to the iconic Ibanez “Tree of Life” inlay design, but with a twist.
