Ibanez AZ Series Guitars FAQs

What is the Ibanez AZ Series?

The AZ Series was unveiled by Ibanez at the 2018 NAMM Show. Ibanez’s first original guitar design for a few years, the AZ is unique in their product catalogue for its understated yet elegant looks. Following a classic S-Type shape and sporting the brand’s old-school ‘Roadstar’ headstock design, the AZ is not aimed at Ibanez’s typical metal audience. Instead, Ibanez’s AZ guitars are simply built to offer exceptional playability and versatile tones.

Who plays an Ibanez AZ Series guitar?

Ibanez’s AZ guitars have been well-received since their release, finding popularity particularly among modern virtuosos. Polyphia’s Tim Henson and Scott LePage have their own signature Ibanez AZ models, with Chon’s Mario Camerena and Erick Hansel using theirs to also power their progressive instrumental rock sound. Jazz-fusion masters Tom Quayle and Martin Miller likewise have their own artist guitars, and many players are now jumping onboard the AZ train.

What pickups are used in an Ibanez AZ Series guitar?

Ibanez AZ guitars come equipped with Seymour Duncan Hyperion pickups; designed exclusively for these models. Balanced-sounding and projecting a medium output, Seymour Duncan’s Hyperion pickups are very touch-sensitive and allow your playing nuances and dynamics to shine through - for ultimate expression.
