Ibanez AZ242PBG Premium Electric Guitar

From A to Z, the AZ series carries with it all of the hallmarks of these tried and tested Ibanez qualities: the smooth oval neck grip, the well-balanced asymmetrical body shape and a neck heel that allows unrivaled playability.

The AZ series represents the future of guitar playing.

Ibanez AZ242PBG features a Poplar Burl top and an American Basswood body back.

The AZ242's ergonomic back body contour and big forearm contour lets the guitar's body fit the player naturally, thus increasing playing comfort.

The AZ body has a deep waist and different radius on each body edge curve, making it easier to play in both standing or sitting positions.

The AZ Roasted Maple neck was heat-treated to increase the wood's stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes.

The Roasted Maple fingerboard was also heat-treated as well to help it provide a well-balanced note attack and tone with rich sustain.

In order to achieve the ultimate neck grip comfort, the fretboard edge was finished with a smooth curve.

The Super All Access Neck Joint increases playability and eases access to the highest frets.

Stainless steel frets boast excellent corrosion resistance and the wide and tall fret-type offers a quick response and good articulation when playing chords and a clear tone while playing single notes.

Ibanez AZ242PBG is also equipped with luminescent side dot position marks, making it easy for players to see fretboard position marks while performing on dark stages.

Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups feature a moderate output through Alnico-5 magnets, which retain the clarity of the fundamental tone when using a distorted sound and deliver a clear pick attack.

The Dyna-MIX 10 offers ten sound variations. The Power Tap mode provides a realistic single coil sound despite its two humbucker pickup layout.
