Ibanez AZES40TUN Essentials Electric Guitar Tungsten


Introducing the Ibanez AZES40, a remarkable addition to the esteemed AZ Essentials line, designed to cater to a wider range of beginner and intermediate players. True to the philosophy of the AZ series, this guitar promises a harmonious blend of tone, versatility, and playability for players embarking on their musical journey. The Maple neck ensures stability and imparts a bright tonal character, making it an ideal foundation for players exploring various styles.

Enhancing the playability, the Jatoba fretboard with its reddish-brown color produces a rich mid-range complemented by a crisp high end. With Medium frets, accuracy in note articulation is heightened, providing a smooth learning experience for players honing their skills. The Poplar body contributes to a well-balanced tone with remarkable thickness, ensuring a resonant and dynamic sound.

Versatility is a key feature, thanks to the Essentials / Accord S-S-H pickups. These pickups deliver a well-balanced tone, allowing players to explore a diverse range of musical genres with a single instrument. The T106 tremolo with Comfort round Steel saddles not only adds a dynamic element to playing but also prioritizes comfort, with an innovative design that minimizes stress on the strumming hand.

The innovative dyna-MIX9 switching system with Alter Switch offers nine sound variations, seamlessly transitioning between humbucker and single-coil modes with a simple flick of the mini switch. One unique mode even simulates a humbucking sound from the combination of two single-coil pickups, providing players with a versatile tonal palette.

The AZES40 boasts several special features that enhance the learning experience. The 25-inch scale length is tailored for ease of play, especially for younger players and those of smaller stature. The 250mm fretboard radius strikes a perfect balance, not too flat nor too round, offering an excellent choice for first-time players by facilitating correct note playing while maintaining a high degree of comfort.
