Description

The AZ242BC is an AZ series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2018. It is produced in Indonesia as part of the mid-tier Premium line.
Even though Ibanez is thought of as a modern guitar brand, we have decades of accumulated knowledge and a history of pushing the boundaries. The AZ series carries with it all of the hallmarks of these tried and tested Ibanez qualities: the smooth oval neck grip, the well balanced asymmetrical body shape, and the neck heel allowing unrivaled playability.
The AZ242BC features a bocote top on an American basswood body bolted to a roasted maple neck with a 24 stainless steel fret roasted maple fingerboard with black dot position markers and luminescent side dots. Components include a pair of Seymour Duncan Hyperion humbucking pickups, a T1502 two-point synchronized tremolo bridge made by Gotoh, a Graph Tech TUSQ XL nut, Sure-Grip II knobs, and Gotoh locking tuning machines with height-adjustable posts.
The AZ242BC employs a dyna-MIX10 switching system with an “Alter switch” toggle which allows the user to access ten distinct tones. The Alter switch appears to tap one coil of the humbucker (as opposed to a traditional coil-split which disables one coil completely) to achieve a sound similar to a single coil without the drop in output which typically accompanies a coil split.
The AZ242F is a similar model with a flamed maple top.
