Designed in collaboration with Berklee College of Music professor and YouTube guitar instructor Tomo Fujita, the Ibanez AZES40 is prepared to set a new standard for entry-level instruments by offering stage-ready playability, electronic bells and whistles, and an attractive price. It all starts with a poplar body, which is paired with the trademark snap and sustain of a maple neck and silky-smooth playability of jatoba for the fingerboard. Beginners are guaranteed to benefit from enlisting these hard-hitting tonewoods, leading to less time sparring with the instrument to get it feeling just right and more time practicing beloved riffs. You'll be duly impressed by the quality of the AZES40's onboard electronics, with an HSS pickup combination for nailing both single-coil and humbucker sounds alongside Ibanez's dyna-MIX9 switching system for unleashing more sonic possibilities. With its impressive woods and electronics, the Ibanez AZES40 is an unprecedented beginner-grade instrument.
