Explore a vast sonic world with high-powered electronics
Many entry-level instruments come with just enough features to get you started on your musical journey. When constructing the AZES, Ibanez decided to forgo this bare-minimum mindset by including two incredible single-coil pickups and a humbucker in the bridge. This configuration delivers the trademark crispness and chime of vintage single coils along with the gut-punching power of a humbucker, with a traditional 5-way blade for switching between each pickup. Not only can you channel the sound of one of rock music's most beloved axes, but the AZES comes stock with Ibanez's dyna-MIX9 switching system onboard. With this high-powered switching system, up to nine different sound variations are at your disposal with the flick of a mini switch, a fantastic option for budding guitarists looking to find their sound as well as seasoned performers seeking to expand their tonal palette.
