Brand new for 2018, the Ibanez AZ series has been developed with collaborations between Ibanez and world-class musicians such as Martin Miller and the band Polyphia. The AZ range has boutique inspired specifications, fusing the aesthetics of classic guitars with a thoroughly up-to-date playing setup.
These guitars deliver classic tones with effortless playability; they feature pro-quality appointments such as stainless-steel frets and roasted maple necks, merged with classic non-locking tremolos and versatile coil switching. If you're seeking boutique-levels of refinement with Ibanez's legendary easy playability, the AZ series is the new workhorse range of guitars for the modern musician.
The Ibanez AZ224F Premium 2018 in Brown Topaz Burst has a American basswood body which provides a versatile tonality with well-balanced frequency response and excellent resonance. The flamed maple top delivers bright overtones and a stand-out aesthetic that will look great on stage.
The fingerboard is roasted maple – this tonewood is naturally warm sounding and the roasting process removes impurities to create an incredibly stable and resonant addition to your tone. The roasted maple also makes the fingerboard more consistent across its length, ensuring each note will ring out with equal clarity.
The headstock features a return to Ibanez's classic design, and gives this the AZ224F a distinctly vintage-inspired look.
Ibanez are renowned for their ability to design and make guitars with a truly effortless playability. The AZ224F features stainless steel jumbo frets that not only help the strings ring with more resonance, they also last far longer than traditional nickel frets before showing signs of wear.
The jumbo-sized frets give improved control over the strings and make playing solo techniques far easier, such as when applying string-bends and vibrato. Luminescent side dot inlays are a nice professional addition that help with playing on darkly-lit stages.
The asymmetric double cutaway body is comfortably contoured and gives excellent access to the top-end of the fingerboard. The new bolt-on joint is a very low-profile design enabling even easier access to the top of the neck.
Seymour Duncan Hyperion Pickups
The Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups are mounted in a HSS arrangement for a genre-hopping capability with both single-coil and humbucker tones. They are wired with 'dyna-MIX9' switching and an 'Alter Switch' for access to a different tonal voice.
This arrangement of pickups and electronics is incredibly versatile and makes the AZ224F capable of performing in a multitude of musical genres.
The AZ224F has a plethora of thoughtful considerations enabling professional performance. The Graph Tech nut and Gotoh locking tuners give a stable platform and low-friction action for tuning stability. Despite the non-locking tremolo design, the Gotoh tremolo bridge provides a smooth 2-pivot action that can still allow for extreme whammy bar use. The locking tuners will ensure your strings remain locked in place and in tune throughout your playing. The AZ224F comes complete with a soft case so you'll be immediately ready to get gigging and rehearsing.
Over the past 30 years, Ibanez have always been at the forefront of developing the right tools for Electric Guitar and Bass players, pushing the boundaries of music. For decades, Ibanez designers and luthiers have been the embodiment of this ideology, pushing their skills to the edge of imagination, consistently creating some of the most versatile and unique instruments ever. Although Ibanez guitars and basses have been made since 1908, it wasn't until the late 1980’s that they began to form an identity for themselves when artists such as Steve Vai and Frank Zappa began using their instruments. Now with a huge artist clientele across the globe Ibanez are a leading manufacturer of electric guitars and basses and a first choice for many dedicated musicians.
