Solidbody Electric Guitar with Alder Body, Roasted Maple Neck and Fingerboard, and 2 Humbucking Pickups – Tri Burst Fade Flat
Its Comfort, Tone, and Playability Are Off the Charts
The Ibanez AZ2402 has a lot to offer — its comfort, tone, and playability are off the charts. Its balanced-sounding alder body boasts comfortable, shallow rear and larger forearm contours. Twin Seymour Duncan Hyperion humbuckers preserve your clarity when you’re using distortion, while its Dyna-MIX10 switching system provides 10 different pickup combinations for an endless array of tones. As far as comfort and stability go, the AZ2402’s S-Tech wood-roasted maple neck and fingerboard are second to none. And its Gotoh T1802 tremolo allows you to bend, twist, and dive-bomb with perfect intonation. Complete with luminescent side dots for the ultimate in stage visibility, the Ibanez AZ2402 is a top-shelf instrument.
S-Tech wood-roasted maple neck offers stability and durability
The AZ2204’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 AZ2204’s Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups are among the most balanced-sounding we’ve heard here at Musiekwereld. 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-MIX9 switching system provides nine different pickup combinations via a mini-toggle and 5-way blade switch. Whatever tone you’re hearing in your head, the AZ2204 can achieve it.
Gotoh T1802 tremolo provides excellent tuning stability
Developed in collaboration with Gotoh, the AZ2204’s T1802 bridge features machined titanium saddles and a solid steel tremolo block, ensuring quick response and amazing articulation. String skipping and hybrid picking are 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.
