Overview

With decades of accumulated knowledge, Ibanez has been at the forefront of the evolution 0of guitar-making for a long time. The Ibanez AZ series carries with it all of the hallmarks of these tried and tested qualities of the guitar maker: the smooth oval neck grip, well-balanced asymmetrical body shape and the neck heel, which allows for unrivaled playability.

The Ibanez AZ226 features an American basswood body and an ergonomic body back contour. The big forearm contour of the Ibanez AZ226 makes the guitar body fit the player naturally, thus increasing playing comfort. The AZ body has a deep waist and different radii on each body edge curve, making it easier to play in either standing or sitting positions. Additionally, the AZ roasted maple neck gets a heat treatment, which increases the wood’s stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes. The roasted maple fretboard has also been heat-treated to help it provide a well-balanced note attack and tone with rich sustain.

In order to achieve ultimate neck grip comfort, the fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve. The Super All Access neck joint increases playability and eases access to the highest frets. Stainless steel frets boast excellent corrosion resistance and the wide and tall fret type offers a quick response, good articulation when playing chords and clear tone while playing single notes. The Ibanez AZ226 is also equipped with luminlay side dot position marks, making it easy for players to see fretboard position marks while performing onstage. Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups feature a moderate output through alnico 5 magnets, which retain the clarity of the fundamental tone when using a distorted sound, and deliver a clear pick attack. The dyna-MIX9 offers nine sound variations, and can easily switch between humbucker and single-coil modes with just the mini switch. One mode is even able to simulate a humbucker sound from the combination of the 2 single-coil pickups. The T1502 tremolo bridge, developed with Gotoh, 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, enabling techniques such as string skipping and hybrid picking.

The Ibanez AZ226 also includes Gotoh Magnum Lock machine heads, which have an established reputation for tuning stability. The H.A.P (height adjustable post) system allows for the adjustment of string posts to ensure the appropriate tension of each string. A gig bag is included with this guitar.
