🚩SALE • Ibanez AZ242F Premium Black Ice


Instrument Categories: , , , ,

The Ibanez AZ242F Premium is a high performance, feature packed double cutaway guitar with classy looks. 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.

Now discontinued and available at a discounted price till we run out, The Ibanez AZ242F Premium features an American Bass wood body with a flamed maple top. The black ice finish has a dark yet classy feel and shows off the nice figure of the flamed maple top.

The roasted maple neck of the Ibanez AZ242F Premium 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 Ibanez AZ242F Premium neck features 24 stainless steel frets which drastically increases the fret life. The luminescent side dots help you see where you are on a dimly lit stage or any darker room.

The Seymour Duncan Hyperion humbuckers used on the Ibanez AZ242F Premium feature an Alnico 5 magnet with moderate output which provides a wide tonal pallet. There is lots of pick attack and clarity and they sound excellent on distorted and clean sounds. 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.

If you are looking for a killer guitar with loads of sonic possibilities and high end features the Ibanez AZ242F may be the one for you!

Sold with the original padded gig bag.

NOTE: This model is discontinued and we have limited stock.   When they’re gone, they’re gone!
