FEATURES:

Seymour Duncan Pickups
The Magic Touch-mini pickup in the neck position offers iconic tonal clarity for which this style of guitar is known, yet with extra body and articulation. The output level is also carefully configured to perfectly match the bridge pickup. The Alnico II Pro Custom pickup in bridge position offers up an ample supply of clarity and twang, while also delivering a nice mid-range bark.

Gotoh/Ibanez Co-Designed "In-Tune" Saddles
These saddles are equipped with grooves which actively prevent each string from slipping to the side. The saddles also feature rounded edges and deeper grooves on 1st and 6th strings, which means much less saddle tilting is required to adjust the string height, and equal string spacing is more easily achieved. Additionally, the saddles are designed with pre-calculated “intonation points” where the string touches the saddle, allowing each string to have and maintain precise intonation. The 10.5mm string spacing allows for easy picking across strings. The saddles themselves are made of titanium for maximum tonal clarity.

Steel Pickup Plate
This steel pickup plate is designed exclusively for AZS series. It’s a critical component that helps generate that quintessential ”Twangy” tone, for which this style guitar is known. This plate is present on both the tremolo and hardtail versions of the AZS, something that is not typical for guitars of this type. This plate, in combination with the traditional style single coil bridge pickup, preserves this iconic sound across the entire AZS lineup.

S-TECH WOOD Roasted Maple Neck & Fingerboard
S-TECH special roasted treatment increases the wood's stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes, while also providing a superior attack and well-balanced tone with rich sustain. The neck is sealed with an oil finish which helps make it feel similar to a well-played guitar neck. The fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve to achieve supreme neck grip comfort.

Gotoh Magnum Lock Machine Heads
The AZS comes with GOTOH MAGNUM LOCK machine heads, which have an established reputation for tuning stability. Its H.A.P. (Height Adjustable Post) system allows for the adjustment of string posts for the appropriate tension of each string.
