The Ibanez AR420 is constructed from a lightweight mahogany body, 3-piece maple neck, and a jatoba fingerboard, offering excellent comfort and an incredibly dynamic tone. The mahogany provides a warm, smooth tone with plenty of depth. The maple neck infuses the guitar with bright characteristics, while the jatoba fretboard offers good levels of projection and a good amount of sustain with a clear ringing tone.
The Ibanez AR420 guitar is designed with a sleek set-in neck construction, providing advanced playability while optimising the resonance transfer between the neck and body. Unlike bolt-on constructions, set-in necks can be sculpted into a smoother and more ergonomic heel, allowing seamless accessibility to the higher register for a more comfortable performance.
Loaded with two Super 58 pickups, the Ibanez AR420 produces a classic, warm and versatile tone. They can handle both jazz and rock without feedback. Additionally, the stylish gold caps covering the Super 58 pickups also feature a unique engraving to create a truly classic look.
The AR420 features a Tri-sound switch for each pickup that allows you to choose from series, parallel, and coil tap wiring configuration for a range of tonal possibilities.
This AR series guitar features the ART-1 bridge and Quik Change III tailpiece combination in a stunning gold finish, creating a beautifully modern yet old appearance to complement the guitar's aesthetics. While the bridge helps improve the string's sustain and tuning stability, the tailpiece allows for faster and easier string changes than standard bridges.
Over the past 30 years, Ibanez Guitars have always been at the forefront of developing the right tools for electric guitar 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 have been made since 1908, it wasn't until the late 1980s 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.
