Ibanez AZ47P1QM Premium AZ Guitar, Ebony Fretboard, Black Ice Burst


Player's Perspective

Now here's a truly special guitar for you - the dark horse of Ibanez's venerable AZ series, the AZ47P1QM. This AZ is extremely unique because, while it takes the AZ formula of the thicker roasted maple neck and the non-locking 2-point Gotoh 510-based tremolo, it incorporates elements of the iconic RG series and an overall more shredder-friendly feature set with an ebony fretboard, a Black Ice Burst quilted maple top, striking gold hardware reminiscent of Steve Vai's JEM guitars, and a basswood body as well as the typical "RG Prestige" pickup set and JEM/RG-style 5-way switching.

At the heart of the guitar is the tried-and-true Air Norton, True Velvet, and Tone Zone DiMarzio set of pickups that Ibanez tends to use on their RGs and S series models ranging from Premium to J. Custom, and for good reason - the combination of warmth and clarity in the Air Norton neck, the spankiness of the True Velvet, and the power and punch of the Tone Zone can cover any genre from jazz to death metal.

If you're a fan of the AZ and its more vintage-style specs, feel and ease of use, but wanted a guitar with the shred-friendly tonewoods and tonal options of the RG, or vice versa - the AZ47P1QM would be the AZ for you. 

Item Specifics

The DiMarzio® Air Norton™, True Velvet™ and Tone Zone® pickups offer depth, warmth and rich dynamics when combined with the 5-way pickup switch. Ebony produces tight lows and mid range with a strong attack in the high end and features a quick response and rich sustain. The Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time. Heat-treatment increases the wood's stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes. The T1502 tremolo bridge features steel saddles and a die-cast zinc tremolo block for a quick response and improved articulation. The 10.5mm string spacing allows for easy picking across strings and its snap-in construction makes it easy to load a tremolo arm.
