The AZ24027 is a seven string AZ series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez for 2021. It is produced in Japan by Fujigen as part of the upscale Prestige line.
The AZ24027 features an alder body bolted to an S-Tech roasted maple oval C shaped neck with an S-Tech roasted maple fingerboard with 24 stainless steel frets, black dot position markers and luminescent side dots. Components include a pair of Seymour Duncan Hyperion 7 humbucking pickups, a Gotoh T1872S two-point synchronized tremolo bridge with titanium saddles made by Gotoh, a Graph Tech TUSQ nut, an angled output jack and Gotoh locking tuning machines.
The AZ24027 employs a dyna-MIX10 switching system (see diagram below) with an "Alter switch" toggle which allows the user to access ten distinct tones. The Alter switch appears to tap one coil of the humbucker (as opposed to a traditional coil-split which disables one coil completely) to achieve a sound similar to a single coil without the drop in output which typically accompanies a coil split.
The AZ2402 is a six string version. The AZ24047 is a similar model with a humbucker/ single/ single (HSS) pickup configuration.
A version with a flat black finish has been seen for sale in Japan. It's believed this finish is a limited offering.
