SOLD • Ibanez AZ226PB Premium Cerulean Blue Burst


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

The AZ line of guitars from Ibanez is all about high performance machines with a perfect balance of classic and modern style and packed to the nines with features. The Ibanez AZ226PB Premium adds another high quality guitar to the lineup.

The premium series from Ibanez has the same features as the Prestige line but they are manufactured in Indonesia to offer them at a lower cost. These guitars are very impressive and the quality is very close to the ones made in Japan at the Fuji-Gen plant.

The Ibanez AZ226PB Premium features an American Bass wood body with a poplar burl top. The combination of the poplar burl top and the lovely cerulean blue burst finish evokes images of a deep sea ocean floor. Truly stunning!

The roasted maple neck helps to provide extra stability and has wonderful golden brown coloring which looks great with basically any color finish. The neck profile is an oval “C” shape and is much thicker than the flat wizard style necks on many Ibanez guitars. It feels super solid and is still very easy to play. The AZ226PB Premium neck features 22 stainless steel frets which drastically increases the fret life. The other thing to note about 22 frets is the neck pickup is further away from the bridge then a 24 fret version which warms up the tone of the neck pickup. The luminescent side dots are a super cool feature and one of my favourites as they help you see where you are on a dimly lit stage or any darker room.

The Ibanez AZ226PB Premium electronics are driven by a Seymour Duncan Hyperion humbucker and two Hyperion single coil pickups. The Hyperions – exclusive to Ibanez – are passive pickups with Alnico 5 magnets and they provide excellent clarity to the note fundamental, clear pick attack and a very even tonal balance across all the strings. They work really well with clean and distorted amp settings. Nine different sound variations are possible through the dyna-mix 9 switching system. The five way pickup selector and mini toggle alter switch puts all of these sounds right at your fingertips.

Ibanez have really knocked out of the park with this series and the Ibanez AZ226PB Premium provides players with a high quality guitar packed with features and killer looks!
