The Ibanez AZ224F electric guitar represents years of crafting expertise. It combines tried and tested features with fresh new innovation for a truly comfortable and broad playing experience, without breaking the bank. It not only sounds like a top instrument, but looks every bit the part.
A combination of Flamed Maple and American Basswood in the body demonstrates a fantastic tonal range, with a deeply resonant, rich mid range response, and a bright finish to top it off due to the Flamed Maple. The AZ Roasted Maple neck is silky smooth and more durable than ever, with an oil finish for less friction across the entire neck,and heat-treatment to keep it stable and tolerant to water and temperature changes.
With the AZ224F, Ibanez continue their penchant for player comfort. Features like the tried and tested 'Oval C' shape neck, wonderfully smooth 'all access' neck heel for top fret access, and a fantastic ergonomic back, with contours designed to allow you to play your best both standing and sitting. The Luminescent side dot inlays make hitting a solo in a poorly lit gig venue a thing of the past, while the Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut keeps strings in tune and snag free. This collaborates harmoniously with jumbo Stainless Steel frets, providing excellent corrosion resistance for the long term, on top of clear tone single notes and well articulated chord sustain.
Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups output deep mid tones, accentuating the rich sustain provided by the medium density body woods, and works phenomenally well with overdrive effects due to the new Alnico-5 magnets, designed to preserve the initial tone input. The Dyna-MIX9 switching system w/Alter Switch offers 9 pickup configurations across two switches, providing a variety of tonal variation to choose from. Also installed, a Gotoh T1502 bridge with 10.5mm string spacing for quick alternate string picking, and an easy snap in design to the tremolo arm makes pitch shifting a breeze.
The Ibanez AZ224F will make an excellent addition to any serious guitarist's collection, perhaps even as your new favourite performing guitar!
