The Ibanez 2018 AZ242BC Premium Electric Guitar in Deep Espresso Burst is a mix of classic design with exotic appointments to create an affordable model that boasts premium quality. Whether you're hitting the studio or taking off on a world tour, the AZ242BC is the perfect guitar to accompany you. Each model is supplied with a soft case to get you from home to the studio or the stage with ease.

The Ibanez 2018 AZ242BC Premium is ergonomically designed to maximise playing comfort. The slender body depth is paired with softly contoured lines that marry together to establish a figure-hugging feel. The upper bout rolls off to allow a comfortable resting position for your picking arm, and removes any impediments from your path.

The body is built using basswood, which produces a well-rounded output that lifts the low-end and tempers the highs for a focused mid-range character. Paired with the basswood is a sophisticated bocote top, which has been treated to a deep espresso burst finish that allows the natural grain of the wood to shine through.

Joined to the body is a roasted maple neck, which offers peerless stability from the moment you pick it up. Shaped to AZ series neck profile, your fretting hand is afforded a substantial yet manageable support to glide along on. Married to the neck is a roasted maple fingerboard, which is home to 24 frets that feature unique luminescent side dot inlays to guide your fingers on the darkest of stages.

The Ibanez 2018 AZ242BC is fitted with a pair of Seymour Duncan Hyperion humbuckers, which offer a dynamic output that responds accurately to your playing style. The tonal versatility of the basswood/bocote body is translated sweetly, giving you a wide range of tones to draw from. Control comes in the form of master volume and tone controls, as well as the dyna-MIX9 switching system with alter switch.

The body of the Ibanez 2018 AZ242BC Premium is equipped with a Gotoh T1502 tremolo bridge, which provides accurate tremolo control whilst optimising intonation and sustain. The headstock is home to Gotoh MAGNUM LOCK machine heads with H.A.P. to uphold tuning integrity with absolute precision throughout the most demanding of performances.

If you're seeking a powerful yet affordable model that can easily hold its own throughout the most demanding of performances, the Ibanez 2018 AZ242BC Premium Electric Guitar is ready and waiting for you.

CITES regulations concerning the export of items containing certain woods affect any guitar sold ouside of the European Union and which contains any quantity of either Rosewood or Bubinga.  In these cases, an additional charge of £80.00 will be levied per species after the sale to pay for the required re-export certificate.  There will be a delay in dispatching any guitar containing either Bubinga or Rosewood of up to 4 weeks while we obtain the necessary certification for export. As the charge is per species, where a guitar contains both Bubinga AND Rosewood, the charge is doubled to £160.00.  We will contact you following your purchase of any guitar containing a controlled wood and advise of the charge once you have placed the order.  You can make payment for the charge by sending a Paypal payment to us at: sales@fxpedal.co.uk. 

Note that CITES only applies to guitars containing Rosewood or Bubinga that are being exported outside the European Union.  Guitars being delivered with the United Kingdom or in the European Union will be dispatched as normal.
