Ibanez AZ2204B AZ Prestige Electric Guitar - Black
FREE GUITAR INSPECTION!Your guitar will arrive ready to play.
Even though Ibanez is considered a modern guitar brand, it has decades of accumulated knowledge and a history of pushing the boundaries. AZ series carries with it all of the hallmarks of these tried and tested Ibanez qualities: the smooth oval neck grip, the well-balanced asymmetrical body shape and the neck heel that allows unrivaled playability.
There are three principles behind the Ibanez Prestige line: precision, performance and playability. The combination of high-tech manufacturing techniques with old-world Japanese craftsmanship, true innovation in design and construction and the incorporation of ideas and suggestions from musicians from around the world are the cornerstones of the Prestige production process.

AZ Oval C S-Tech roasted maple neck
S-Tech special roasted treatment increases the wood's stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes. The neck is sealed with an oil finish that helps make it feel similar to a well-played guitar neck.
S-Tech roasted maple fretboard with black dot inlays
S-Tech special roasted treatment provides a superior attack, a well-balanced tone and a rich sustain. The fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve for supreme neck grip comfort.
Dyna-Mix 9 switching system w/Alter switch
Dyna-Mix 9 offers nine sound variations and can easily switch among humbucker and single-coil modes with just the mini switch. One mode is even able to simulate a humbucker sound by combining the two single-coil pickups.
Standard Humbucker+ mode
This diagram shows the various pickup combinations selectable via the 5-position blade while the Alter switch is in Standard Humbucker+ mode.
This diagram shows the various pickup combinations selectable via the 5-position blade while the Alter switch is in 2Hum/Tap mode. Pickups highlighted in orange are series-connected.
Oil-impregnated bone nut, stainless steel frets
The oil-impregnated bone nut provides superior tuning stability and warm, rich resonance. Stainless steel frets boast excellent corrosion resistance. The wide and tall fret type offers a quick response, good articulation when playing chords and clear tone when playing single notes.
Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups
Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups feature a moderate output through Alnico-5 magnets to keep the clarity of the fundamental tone when using a distortion sound 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.
Gotoh Magnum Lock machine heads with height-adjustable posts
AZ comes with Gotoh Magnum lock machine heads, which have an established reputation for tuning stability. The H.A.P. (height-adjustable post) system allows for the adjustment of string posts for the appropriate tension.
Luminlay side dot inlays
Luminlay luminescent side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
Ergonomic rear body contour
A shallow body back contour and a big forearm contour make the guitar body fit the player naturally, increasing playing comfort. The AZ body has a deep waist and different radii on each body edge curve, making it easier to play in both standing and sitting positions.
