Ibanez have hit a massive home run with the new AZ242F Premium Electric Guitar. One of the shining stars in the 2018 Ibanez lineup, the brand new AZ242F is finished in a magnificient colour combination that Ibanez have dubbed “Tequila Sunrise Gradation”.
An AZ series electric guitar, this beauty has been designed to combine classic aesthetics with modern playability and boutique-level specifications and is destined to be highly sought after in years to come.
The AZ242F features a roasted Maple Neck and Fretboard providing tremendous stability, consistency and resonance. Stainless Steel Jumbo frets have been utilised for improved durability, brighter tonality and a superb playing feel.
A premium quality Gotoh T1502 Vintage style Tremolo and locking tuners provide professional level tuning stability, while the versatile Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups and Dyna-MIX switching helps create a huge array of tonal possibilities. The AZ242F is a perfect blend of classic aesthetics, modern playability and contemporary specifications.
Offering a similar experience to boutique guitars without the hefty price tag, the Ibanez AZ242F will amaze you with its versatile tones, effortless playability and classic good-looks.
This guitar has also had the benefit of a PRO-SCM setup. Time on the bench has resulted in a superb action, slinky frets with hand rolled ends and perfect intonation. You could pay up to $120 for this work – it’s included at no extra charge!
