From its classic aesthetics to its excellent playability and deluxe appointments, the Ibanez AZ226 is a sophisticated entry into the Ibanez AZ lineup.

It features a comfortable roasted maple neck and fingerboard for a hearty tone with plenty of snap, along with a sonically balanced basswood body capped in a gorgeously figured poplar burl.

Three Seymour Duncan pickups in an HSS configuration have a vintage vibe with modern clarity, perfect for chunky power chords, slowhand leads, or virtuosic soloing.

Once you pick up this guitar, you'll never want to set it down!


  • Luminescent side dot inlays - The luminescent side dot position marks make it easy for players to see fretboard position marks when performing on dark stages.
  • Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads - The Gotoh® MG-T locking machine heads achieve incredible tuning stability, cutting down string-changing time.
  • Gotoh® T1502 tremolo bridge - T1502 tremolo bridge features steel saddles and a die-cast zinc tremolo block for a quick response and improved articulation. The 10.5 mm string spacing allows for easy picking across strings. Its snap-in construction makes it easy to load a tremolo arm.
  • dyna-MIX 9 switching system with Alter switch - dyna-MIX 9 offers nine sound variations, and can easily switch between humbucker and single coil modes with just the mini switch. One mode is even able to simulate a humbucker sound from the combination of the 2 single coil pickups.
  • Seymour Duncan® Hyperion™ Pickups - Seymour Duncan® Hyperion™ Pickups feature a moderate output through Alnico-5 magnets to keep the clarity of the fundamental tone when using a distortion sound, and to deliver a clear pick attack. From treble to bass, the overall tonal balance is evenly adjusted., and works well with various effect pedals.
  • Roasted Maple fretboard with Black dot inlays - Heat-treatment provides a well-balanced attack and tone and a rich sustain. In order to achieve supreme neck grip comfort, the fretboard edge is finished with a smooth curve.
  • AZ Roasted Maple neck - Heat-treatment increases the wood's stability, durability, water resistance and tolerance of temperature changes.
  • Ergonomic rear body contour - A shallow body back contour and a big forearm contour make the guitar body fit the player naturally, thus increasing playing comfort. The AZ body has a deep waist and different radii on each body edge curve, making it easier to play in both standing or sitting positions.
