Ibanez AZS2200 AZS Prestige Guitar, Black, Roasted Maple Fretboard, Seymour Duncan Pickups
The Ibanez AZ, specifically the Prestige line, has become one of Ibanez's most popular new additions in recent years, and it's easy to see why. Introduced in 2021, the AZS is an amazing take on the vintage "T"-style guitar with a modern twist compared to their more iconic RG and other shreddy offerings.
The guitar comes with a 12" radius for fast playability, which makes the familiar C profile neck shape feel on par with other "Classic" boutique offerings with its roasted maple neck back and stainless steel frets. The awesome Seymour Duncan pickup combination of the mini-humbucker neck and T-style Alnico II Pro bridge covers a lot of ground, as it's rooted in the already-versatile T-style pickup tone but adds extra warmth and thickness in both positions. The versatility of the dyna-MIX switching also allows the neck pickup to act as both a humbucker and a traditional single-coil based on your preference and the situation.
Lastly, Ibanez did something genius with this specific model - they retained the metal mounting plate for the bridge pickup that gives a "T"-style guitar its signature "twang", but combined it with a Gotoh tremolo bridge as a separate piece for the best of both worlds.
For a classy-looking, do-it-all workhorse axe equipped with several boutique-level features that takes the "T" platform to the next level at a surprisingly affordable price point for the feature set, check out the AZS2200 Prestige.
dyna-MIX5 switching system with Alter Switch
The dyna-MIX5 switching system with Alter Switch adds a sound variation to fit so many different kinds of playing style.
Steel pickup plate
This steel pickup plate is designed exclusively for AZS series. It’s a critical component that helps generate that quintessential ”Twangy” tone, for which this style guitar is known. This plate is present on both the tremolo and hardtail versions of the AZS, something that is not typical for guitars of this type. This plate, in combination with the traditional style single coil bridge pickup, preserves this iconic sound across the entire AZS lineup.
Seymour Duncan® Magic Touch-mini™ / Alnico II Pro™ Custom pickups
The Magic Touch-mini™ pickup in the neck position offers iconic tonal clarity for which this style of guitar is known, yet with extra body and articulation. The output level is also carefully configured to perfectly match the bridge pickup. The Alnico II Pro™ Custom pickup in bridge position offers up an ample supply of clarity and twang, while also delivering a nice mid-range bark.
AZ Oval C S-TECH WOOD 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 which helps make it feel similar to a well-played guitar neck.
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.
Non-recessed bridge cavity
While the original AZ series features a recessed bridge cavity for fluid and dynamic tremolo action, this model has non-recessed bridge cavity. The direct contact between bridge plate and the guitar body provides better resonance and helps facilitate subtle nuances in playing dynamics.
S-TECH WOOD Roasted Maple fretboard w/Abalone dot inlay
S-TECH special roasted treatment provides a superior attack and a well-balanced tone and a rich sustain. In order to achieve supreme neck grip comfort, the fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve.
Gotoh® T1802 tremolo bridge
The T1802 tremolo bridge features machined titanium saddles and a machined steel tremolo block for a quick response, thick lows and rich highs. The 10.5mm string spacing allows for easy picking across strings and its snap-in construction makes it easy to load a tremolo arm.
Super All Access Neck Joint
The Super All Access Neck Joint increases playability and allows for easy access to the higher frets.
Gotoh® Magnum Lock machine heads w/H.A.P.(Height Adjustable Post)
The AZS comes with GOTOH® MAGNUM LOCK® machine heads, which have an established reputation for tuning stability. Its H. A. P® (Height Adjustable Post). system allows for the adjustment of string posts for the appropriate tension of each string.
Luminlay side dot inlays
The Luminlay side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
