The Ibanez Power Lead PL5 is pretty much an MXR Distortion+ with a post-equalization emphazising the bass and low mids. It is a very fat and powerful distortion that can almost do overdrive. Great for sweep-picking and legato runs.
Produced: 1989-1990 (metal case)
List price 1991: 98 DM
Collectibility: high (metal case)
Re-issued: yes, with plastic case (1991-1998)
