Manufacturer's ID: AZ242BC-DET

What we say:

At A Glance:

The Ibanez AZ242BC takes classic looks and style, and ramps up the quality and features. This Premium level instrument comes loaded with features like Seymour Duncan's versatile Hyperion pickups, made even more versatile with Ibanez's dyna-MIX 10 switching system, while the asymmetrical contoured body and deeply contoured neck heel ensure an unbelievable level of comfort, access and playability. With a highly impressive level of quality and construction throughout, the AZ242BC blurs the edges of where you end and the guitar begins.

Features We Love:


Ibanez's roasting process on the AZ242BC's maple neck ensures an unparalleled level of durability, stability, and tolerance of temperature changes. This makes it an outstanding tool to stand up to anything heavy playing and touring can throw at it. The neck profile makes this guitar gorgeously playable, thanks to the smooth oval neck shape and rolled fretboard edges.


The AZ242BC is rigged with the Seymour Duncan Hyperion HH pickup set, featuring moderate output through Alnico-5 magnets to ensure a clear pick attack and fundamental tone, even when using loads of gain. These pickups are paired with Ibanez's dyna-MIX 10 switching system with Alter Switch. In position 1, the selector gives you a 5-way HH pickup selection profile. In position 2, the humbuckers are Power Tapped to deliver a lower, more singlecoil-esque output level and tone, without removing the hum-cancelling capabilities. In total, you're left with 10 unique pickup options.

Body Contouring

This guitar's back and forearm contours make the guitar fit the body closely for maximum playing comfort, while the differing radii on each body curve ensure this guitar plays just as well sitting down or standing up. Lastly, the pronounced contouring on the neck heel ensures absolutely unfettered access to every part of the fingerboard for wherever the music carries you.


  • Powerful and versatile electronics give you an array of tones
  • Stunningly playable and comfortable neck carve
  • Extremely natural body contouring ensures maximum comfort in any playing position
