Comfortable 6-string electric designed for beginning and intermediate players.

Ibanez's AZES40 AZ Essentials Electric Guitar brings unparalleled tone and playability to beginner and intermediate guitarists. With a maple neck, jatoba fretboard and poplar body, the AZ Standard delivers a balanced tone suited for any musical style. Three ceramic pickups—including 2 Essentials single-coils and an Accord humbucker—provide a range of tones from bright and crisp to full and saturated. The AZ Standard is equipped with Ibanez machine heads with die-cast housings for quick and easy string changes, as well as a T106 tremolo bridge with comfort round steel saddles for subtle pitch effects. A dyna-MIX9 switching system with alter switch offers even more tonal variety at your fingertips.

Versatile Tone Through Three Responsive Pickups

With the Essentials single-coil pickups in the neck and middle positions as well as an Accord humbucker in the bridge, the AZ Standard provides a range of tones to suit any style. The single-coils offer a crisp, articulate tone perfect for rock, blues and country, while the humbucker delivers a warmer, fuller tone ideal for jazz, fusion and heavy music. A dyna-MIX9 switching system with alter switch makes it easy to blend and shape your tone.

Balanced Tone From Select Tonewoods

A maple neck, jatoba fretboard and poplar body give the AZ Standard a balanced tone that resonates with clarity and depth. Maple is a bright, articulate wood that provides snap and clarity, while jatoba adds midrange warmth and poplar contributes low-end fullness. Together, these tonewoods yield a versatile voice that can handle any genre.

Premium Hardware for Effortless Playability

Ibanez is known for building guitars with fast, comfortable necks and premium hardware and the AZ Standard is no exception. It features a slim maple neck, 22 medium frets and a 10" radius for a fast, low-action feel. Die-cast machine heads provide precise, slip-free tuning while a T106 tremolo bridge offers subtle pitch effects. A mono-unit output jack and Comfort round bridge saddles enhance playability and tone.
