Ibanez AZ Premium Charcoal Black Burst

Ibanez AZ Premium Charcoal Black Burst

The AZ242PBG has a super cool poplar burl top finished in a Charcoal Black Burst that really highlights the unique characteristics of the wood. Loaded up with Duncan Hyperion pickups and a Dyna-MIX 10 wiring scheme - players who want versatility are going to need this guitar.

Ibanez RG Prestige Silver Flat

Ibanez RG Prestige Silver Flat

I mean, come on! The Silver Flat finish combined with the white pickup covers and the white pearloid body and fretboard binding on this RG is pure class! The Super Wizard HP neck profile will feel fast as lightning, and the pickups are Fishman Fluence's with Modern humbuckers and a single-coil Fluence in the middle position.

Ibanez RG Premium Tropical Seafloor

Ibanez RG Premium Tropical Seafloor

One of the most accurately named finishes ever; look at the blue and purple hues dubbed "Tropical Seafloor" on this RG Premium. The Bare Knuckle Aftermath humbuckers with aged covers go perfectly with the color, and the fretboard has Luminlay side dots to help find your way on the darkest of stages.

Ibanez RG High Performance Blue Reef Gradation

Ibanez RG High Performance Blue Reef Gradation

Maybe it's because New York has been gray and rainy this time of year that we're just getting any wishes for a sunny beach out with this ocean-inspired Ibanez finishes, like the one on this RG that's called Blue Reef Gradation. We can't get enough of these cool gradient finishes over flame maple tops. This RG even has a super-sturdy roasted maple neck, and loaded with DiMarzio humbuckers!

Ibanez S Axion Label Blue Chameleon

Ibanez S Axion Label Blue Chameleon

You're going to want to play this Chameleon finished S671 under some stage lights! The guitar has a Nitro Wizard 5-piece panga panga/walnut neck with Sub-Zero treated frets and loaded with Fishman Fluence Modern humbuckers for a crystal clear tone no matter how much gain you throw at it!

Ibanez RGA High Performance Laser Blue Matte

Ibanez RGA High Performance Laser Blue Matte

We're suckers for a matte finish just as much as we are an exotic wood top. This RGA High Performance looks like a high performance car that we'd love to take for a spin. Specs include a roasted maple Wizard III neck and DiMarzio Fusion Edge humbuckers with gold covers.

Ibanez RG j.custom Brownish Sphalerite

Ibanez RG j.custom Brownish Sphalerite

Ibanez j.custom guitars are manufactured by an elite group of highly skilled luthiers trained to produce instruments of uncompromised quality. The guitar has a AAA-grade flame maple top and  “Velvetouch” finish on neck back and j.custom fret edge treatment ensures "just right" feel and ease of playing. Players who want the best of the best need to look no further than a j. Custom Ibanez!

Ibanez AZ224BCG Deep Espresso Burst

Ibanez AZ224BCG Deep Espresso Burst

The playability and value offered by the Ibanez AZ model has really turned us on our heads. This new AZ224BCG has a bocote top over an American basswood body, and it's finished in a Deep Espresso Burst which is perfect for all you coffee addicts - ourselves included.

Ibanez AZ Prestige Black Flat

Ibanez AZ Prestige Black Flat

This is the AZ Prestige model in a stealthy Black Flat finish! The AZ Prestige features an incredibly sturdy roasted maple neck with 24 frets, an alder body and Duncan Hyperion humbuckers. The frets on the AZ Prestige are stainless steel for a bright and articulate tone that will last you a lifetime. The flat black color looks fantastic next to the brown of the roasted maple neck, too!

Ibanez FR Standard Candy Apple Matte

Ibanez FR Standard Candy Apple Matte

A bit different in aesthetics than the usual double-cutaway tremolo Ibanez models, this FR Standard looks awesome with the matte red finish and roasted maple neck! The FR Standard has a pao ferro fretboard with Bare Knuckle Aftermath humbuckers for a razor-sharp Metal/Djent tone. The fixed Mono-Rail bridge keeps things nice and simple, setup-wise as well!
