From treble to bass, the AZ427P1PB 7-string guitar delivers a well-balanced solid tone with a focused mid range. Taking adaptability to new extremes, the AZ series has established itself and carved out a place that spans everything from the warmest blues licks, to the most intense, shred-heavy metal riffs. Carrying this ethos forward, the AZ line embodies time-tested Ibanez innovation and player-focused features like a smooth, oval neck grip, a well-balanced asymmetrical body shape, and the neck heel allowing for unrivaled playability.
Oval C Roasted Maple neck:
Heat-treatment increases the wood's stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes.
Rosewood fretboard provides a well-balanced solid tone with a focused mid range.
Jumbo Stainless Steel frets:
Stainless steel frets boast excellent corrosion resistance. The wide and tall fret-type offers a quick response and effortless articulation when playing chords and clear tone when playing single notes.

The Poplar Burl top features an exotic wood grain and the American Basswood body delivers a natural and flat tone.
Seymour Duncan® Hyperion™ H-H pickups:
Seymour Duncan® Hyperion™ Pickups feature a moderate output through Alnico-5 magnets to keep the clarity of the fundamental tone when using distortion and to deliver a clear pick attack. From treble to bass, the overall tonal balance is evenly adjusted and works well with various effect pedals.
