    Up for sale is an Ibanez AZ242BC. The guitar itself is in fantastic condition. A bit of swirl/pic marks between the two pickups, but it's hard to see unless you look at an angle. Also, there is a small bump on the bottom front. I tried to show it in the pics. you can't see it if you look down at the guitar while playing or look straight at it. It doens't have the original ibanez gig bag, but an aftermarket gig bag. It will be well packed when shipped.

    Please let me know if you have any questiions. Thanks!!!!

    For 2018, Ibanez is introducing a new line of solid body electric guitars called the AZ series. Within that line, we are excited to announce the release of the AZ242BC. Even though Ibanez tends to be a guitar brand associated with modern designs, we have decades of accumulated knowledge and a history to draw from, so pushing boundaries is nothing new for us.

    The AZ series carries with it all of the hallmarks of these tried and tested Ibanez qualities: the smooth oval neck profile, the well balanced asymmetrical body shape, and the neck heel allowing unrivaled playability an upper fret access. It also features a new tremolo bridge, as well as newly developed Hyperion pickups, produced in collaboration with Seymour Duncan. All of these elements help the AZ push the existing boundaries of playability and sound to the next level for modern cutting-edge players, while also providing a touch of classic styling.

    The AZ’s Roasted Maple neck increases the wood’s stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes. <br>In order to achieve a supremely comfortable neck, the fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve that extends through the border between the fretboard and the neck to the fretboard itself. The Oval C neck shape allows for a comfortable grip in the lower register, and a more modern feel in the higher register. Luminescent side dots also provide a great point of reference on dark stages.

    A shallow rear body contour combines with a larger forearm contour increases player comfort. The pickups, designed in collaboration with Seymour Duncan, are a moderate output pickup, sporting Alnico-5 magnets to keep the clarity of the fundamental tone while using distortion. This design also provides a dynamic and clear pick attack. From treble to bass, the overall tone is evenly balanced and works well with various effects. A newly developed dyna-MIX 10 switching system provides excellent versatility in that it has 10 different possible pickup combinations by way of the mini toggle and 5-way blade switch.

    The T1502 bridge is a result of direct collaboration between Ibanez and GOTOH. The narrower string spacing allows for easy picking across strings, for styles such as string skipping and hybrid picking. The snap and hold tremolo arm socket makes it easy to load a tremolo arm, and the arm torque adjuster allows for fine torque adjustments without any tools. The stud lock screws lock the stud bolts in place, for better tuning stability and resonance. The 2-point floating tremolo system creates a super smooth tremolo motion in either direction.

    The AZ is also equipped with GOTOH H.A.P-M locking machine heads, which have an established reputation for tuning stability. Its H. A. P (Height Adjustable Post) system allows for the adjustment of string posts to attain appropriate tension on each individual string. Gig bag included.
