First of all, I want to explain a little bit about this dreamy Ibanez guitar series!

why do the most professional and modern guitarists use the ibanez az series?

why do the most professional and modern guitarists use the az ibanez series?

When you enter the Ibanez site, this is what you’ll read about this series :

Taking adaptability to new extremes, the AZ series has established itself and carved out a place that spans everything from the warmest blues licks, to the most intense, shred-heavy metal riffs. Carrying this ethos forward, the AZ line embodies time-tested Ibanez innovation and player-focused features like a smooth, oval neck grip, a well-balanced asymmetrical body shape, and the neck heel allowing for unrivaled playability.

You really have to think ! 😍

Ibanez has a wonderful Interpretation :

We had a guitar that covered everything

From A TO Z !

I think when we hear songs being recorded with ibanez AZ series, the sincerity of this sentence becomes clear .

The AZ line was introduced in 2018. In these awesome series ,the neck joint is also a completely new design referred to as the Super All Access neck joint. (SAAN)

It also has a completely new and classic look , actually it has new body shape at all !

And it clearly is inspired by the classic fender Stratocaster !

The difference between AZ and RG series:

most RGs have Floyd Rose style double locking tremolos, the AZ series employ Fender-style synchronized tremolo units without locking nuts. In addition, the AZ models feature an oval C shape neck profile which is thicker than that found on a typical RG model.

We have two type of this magical series : “Prestige” and “Premium” .

I strongly believe that this could be my desired guitar island

Tom QuaYle says :

This feels like a real boutique guitar .

Playability, feeling of the neck , sound, it feels like the highest end guitar that I’ve ever played from Ibanez . just really blown away! So the AZ guitar makes me a better player and it will make you a better player as well .

Marco Sfogli says :

It’s clear to me how this instrument represent years of love and dedication to guitar making .

I’m sure this freedom of expression will please both ultra-fast guitar players as well as the ultimate working musician .

ANDY TIMMOS says :

Finally, I must say that the AZ series has helped the modernization current of musicians ; or let’s say, this guitar has given modern musicians and modern styles a very original power .

And overall, the power of playing with this exceptional series is very, very sexy !

As Andrei Sevastre says :

The 2018 Ibanez AZ series is absolutely phenomenal. I love the fact that these are very versatile guitars, not geared towards a specific genre. These extremely good looking guitars are the perfect choice for the modern player looking to broaden one’s musical horizons. They’re sleek, fast and the build quality is exceptional. Would love to see Ibanez make a lefty line for the AZ, both Premium and Prestige.

I should say,

ME TOO BRO!
