As a mainstay of modern music, the “single cutaway” guitar is truly the stuff of legends. Variations have come and gone over the years, but few if any have held anything unique to justify their existence. With this as hindsight, Ibanez knew if it was to embark on creating its own interpretation of this classic, it would need to be a guitar that occupied its own place in the world of rock guitar. The ARZ lives up to this precept, taking the original iconic “single cutaway” design into a new dimension that’s totally in sync with the needs of modern guitarists.
The ARZ200FM is all about comfort, tone, and versatility. It begins with a choice mahogany body, capped with a sexy flamed maple top and is fitted with the Mahogany ARZ set-in neck. Brandishing a smooth 25” scale bound Rosewood fretboard, the ARZ neck offers an ultra-smooth heel for superb playability and unfettered access, right up to the 24th fret.
The ARZ200FM’s 25” scale length is also a plus for those who down-tune by providing more even string tension across the playing spectrum. This in turn, brings more life to the strings as well as increased sustain. A bound rosewood fretboard is embellished with bold block inlays and fitted with medium frets that enhance playing speed and optimize articulation.
The Ibanez ART-1 bridge is renowned for precise intonation and helps achieve rich, full sustain. Electronics include two Classic Elite humbucker pickups that generate punchy, super-tight sound, right down to the lowest notes. Case sold separately.

Comments about Ibanez ARZ Series ARZ200FM Electric Guitar:
This is a very well made guitar for short money. It basically an updated version of a Les Paul with modern features not usually seen on typical Les Paul style guitars. For example, it's got 24 frets as opposed to 22, which was a big factor in my decision to buy it. Also, it's significantly lighter than a typical Les Paul, and it's got the contoured back (very comfortable to play standing for long periods of time) and smooth neck heel which make the higher notes on the neck much more accessible. Pick-ups sound surprisingly good. I was thinking they may have to be replaced, but they're really not bad at all. The finish (Tri-burst) is beautiful. The volume and tone control nobs have a nice grip to them and adjust smoothly.
