Ibanez AZ Premium in Dragon Eye and Black Ice Burst

Ibanez AZ47P1QM Premium (Dragon Eye Burst and Black Ice Burst)

I’ve never really understood Ibanez’ way of naming their models, but they sure look good. Here’s the AZ47P1QM Premium (really rolls off your tongue, doesn’t it?) available with quilted maple tops in either Dragon Eye burst and a dark Black Ice burst. I remember someone claiming that Ibanez’ AZ line of guitars were named just that since “they can play everything from A to Z”, but these are aiming for high gain tones through triple DiMarzio pickups (DiMarzio Air Norton in the neck, True Velvet in the middle and The Tone Zone in the bridge) controlled with a 5-way pickup switch.

Other features include an Oval C roasted maple neck, ebony fretboard with Mother of Pearl dot inlays and 24 jumbo stainless steel frets, gold hardware (Gotoh locking tuners and Gotoh T1502 tremolo) and Luminlay side dots.
