The Ibanez AZ lineup of guitars draws on the historic elements of the Strat-style body and combines them with time-tested Ibanez build elements centered around stability, speed, and comfort. In addition to their own robust history, Ibanez also looks to the greater guitar landscape in pursuit of knowledge and new creative arenas. Roasted maple necks, jumbo stainless-steel frets, and Gotoh® tremolo bridges are standard issue with the Ibanez AZ. Their Seymour Duncan® Hyperion™ pickups provide a balanced tone throughout the frequency spectrum, maintain a focused core sound even at high levels of distortion, deliver clean articulation, and play very well when combined with an effect pedal setup. The Ibanez AZ is available in HH (humbucker-humbucker) and SSH (single coil-single coil-humbucker) pickup arrangements, giving the best of many worlds to choose from!
