The Ibanez 2018 AZ224F Premium Electric Guitar is a visually stunning and sonically versatile model that is ideal for gigging musicians. Delivering superb Premium range appointments at an affordable price, the AZ224F is perfect for those who need a durable workhorse that is unashamedly stylish. Each model is supplied with a soft case to get you from home to the studio or the stage with ease.
The AZ224F is shaped to a deep double-cutaway profile, with a slim body depth combined with ergonomically designed contours to maximise playing comfort. Whether you’re playing in a seated position or running around on the stage, the AZ224F is a joy to wield. Thanks to its lightweight feel, your back will be spared during lengthy performances.
The body is built using basswood, which produces a robust midrange energy that is versatile and ideal for those who like to shred. The softened low-end energy and rounded highs mean that your tones will sing beautifully without becoming muddy or shrill. Paired with the basswood is a mesmerising flamed maple top, which creates a stunning visual aesthetic.
LIGHTNING FAST NECK
Joined to the body is a roasted maple neck, which offers peerless stability from the moment you pick it up. Shaped to an effortlessly comfortable profile, your fretting hand is afforded a substantial yet manageable support to glide along on. Married to the neck is a roasted maple fingerboard, which is home to 22 frets that feature unique luminescent side dot inlays to guide your fingers on the darkest of stages.
SEYMOUR DUNCAN HYPERION PICKUPS
The Ibanez 2018 AZ224F is fitted with a trio of Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups in a humbuckers/single-coil/single-coil arrangement. These mid-output pickups translate the versatile tonality of the basswood perfectly, giving you everything from sweet and mellow to searing hot. Whatever style of music that you perform, you can transition between anything and everything seamlessly. Control comes in the form of master volume and tone controls, as well as the dyna-MIX9 switching system with alter switch.
The body of the Ibanez 2018 AZ224F Premium is equipped with a Gotoh T1502 tremolo bridge, which provides accurate tremolo control whilst optimising intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to Gotoh MAGNUM LOCK machine heads with H.A.P. to uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision throughout the most demanding of performances.
