Ibanez AZ2204F-TAB Prestige 6-String Electric Guitar with Case - Transparent Aqua Blue
Versatile doesn't even begin to describe the Ibanez AZ2204F's capabilities. Its Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups preserve your clarity when you crank up the gain, while its dyna-MIX 9 switching system provides nine different pickup combinations for an endless supply of tones. Gorgeous flamed maple tops a balanced-sounding alder body, which is framed by an eye-catching white pearloid pickguard. The AZ2204F's S-TECH WOOD roasted maple neck and fingerboard supply you with unprecedented comfort and stability. Bend, twist, and dive-bomb with perfect intonation, thanks to the AZ2204F's Gotoh T1802 tremolo. Gotoh locking tuners round out the AZ2204F's top-shelf feature set.
S-TECH WOOD roasted maple neck offers stability and durability
The AZ2204F's roasted maple neck was subjected to Ibanez's S-TECH WOOD nitrogen-heating treatment, which increases its stability, durability, water resistance, and tolerance to temperature changes. The neck is then sealed with oil, resulting in a well-played feel. And it's supremely comfortable - its fingerboard edge was finished with a smooth curve that extends through the border between the fingerboard and the neck to the fingerboard itself. Beyond that, this guitar's AZ Oval C-shaped neck fills your hand nicely at the lower frets, while providing a more modern feel when you're playing up high.
Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups yield an endless array of tones
The Ibanez AZ2204F's Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups are amongst the most balanced-sounding we've heard. Laid out in an HSS configuration, these pickups yield a moderate output and sport Alnico V magnets, which preserve the clarity of your fundamental tone in high-gain situations. You'll also benefit from a dynamic and clear pick attack. Beyond that, Ibanez's dyna-MIX 9 switching system provides 9 different pickup combinations via a mini toggle and 5-way blade switch. Whatever tone you're hearing in your head, the AZ2204F can achieve it.
Gotoh T1802 tremolo provides excellent tuning stability
Developed in collaboration with Gotoh, the AZ2204F's T1802 bridge features machined titanium saddles and a solid-steel tremolo block, ensuring quick response and amazing articulation. String skipping and hybrid picking is effortless, thanks to narrow string spacing. Loading the guitar's tremolo arm is a breeze, by virtue of the T1802's snap and hold socket, and its arm torque adjuster allows for fine adjustments without any tools. The T1802's stud lock screws lock the stud bolts in place, enhancing the instrument's resonance and providing excellent tuning stability. Beyond that, the T1802's 2-point floating tremolo system achieves an astoundingly smooth tremolo motion in either direction.
