S-Tech wood roasted maple neck offers stability and durability
Ibanez enhanced the AZ47P1QM’s roasted maple neck with their S-Tech wood nitrogen-heating treatment, which increases its stability, durability, water resistance, and tolerance to temperature changes. The neck is then sealed with oil, resulting in a well-played feel. And it’s supremely comfortable — its fingerboard edge was finished with a smooth curve that extends through the border between the fingerboard and the neck to the fingerboard itself. Beyond that, this guitar’s AZ oval "C"-shaped neck fills your hand nicely at the lower frets while providing a more modern feel when playing up high.
Three DiMarzio pickups cover an expansive sonic range
There's no denying the massive range of tone you can get out of an HSH configuration, and with the Ibanez Premium AZ47P1QM 's combo of DiMarzio pickups, you're in a new league altogether. First, there's the DiMarzio Tone Zone at the bridge, a hot humbucker with a super-wide dynamic range. It's a perfect complement to the AZ47P1QM's DiMarzio Air Norton at the neck, which is deep, warm, and remarkably clean. And smack in the middle, you've got a DiMarzio True Velvet single-coil that's bright and sweet all the way up the neck — perfect for soloing. The guitarists here at Sweetwater love this ultra-flexible pickup combination.
Performance-enhancing premium hardware delivers an exceptional playing experience
Developed in collaboration with Gotoh, the AZ47P1QM’s T1502 tremolo bridge features machined steel saddles and a die-cast zinc tremolo block, ensuring quick response and amazing articulation. Loading the guitar’s tremolo arm is a breeze by virtue of the T1502’s snap-and-hold socket, and its arm torque adjuster allows for fine adjustments without any tools. Paired with Gotoh MG-T locking machine heads and a Graph Tech nut, the T1502 delivers rock-solid intonation and smooth tremolo action. On top of that, the AZ47P1QM sports 24 stainless steel frets, which offer a crisp sound and enhanced durability.
