The ARZIR27 features 3-piece Mahogany/ Maple ARZ-7 set-in neck, Mahogany body, Jumbo frets, and the TOM 7 bridge for superior intonation and sustain. Electronics include two EMG 707 pickups, specifically designed to beef up the low B while providing a more responsive, super-tight overall sound. The ARZIR27’s high gloss finish, bound Ebony fingerboard, Pearl/ Abalone block inlay, and gold hardware, take the Iron Label series to a new level with a style of new elegance.
The ARZ series feature a sleek, single cutaway design and 24-fret, ultra-comfort set-in neck with smooth heel, designed for metal music. With its longer 25 inch scale length, the ARZ series are meant for down tuning, and a natural for the Iron Label treatment. As the leader in 7-string guitar development—maximizing the sonic gravitas of the ARZ series with a seventh string was purely a matter of simple evolution for Ibanez.
